    Anyone know what the new postage stamp rates are? Our premed committee wants us to provide 80 cents stamps for each recommendation package and also stamps for a confirmation postcard. that was based on old rates; what are the new rates? i heard they were effective June 1st.

    34 cents to 37 cents, and I called the post office and they said they don't know the new rates for other stuff! its really annoying cause I have to give envelopes to my prehealth office too, so I'm just doubling the amount, just to be safe...this sucks...too much moola $$$ :mad:

    Here's what i found online:

    EFFECTIVE JUNE 30, 2002:
    Overall, First-Class Mail rates will increase an average of 7.9%. The single-piece 1-ounce First-Class Mail rate will increase from $0.34 to $0.37, and the single-piece card rate will increase from $0.21 to $0.23. The additional ounce rate for single-piece First-Class Mail will remain at $0.23. There will be a lower additional ounce rate for Presorted First-Class Mail.
