Consumer Price Index Update

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) was updated. Customers who would like an indication of the potential average price change for our mailing services can refer to the Postal Regulatory Commission’s Web site (, which provides the most current price cap. The current calculation uses CPI data through December. Mailing services price adjustments in May will likely reflect CPI data through December.

We’ll announce the new prices for mailing services, including stamp prices, in February. Watch the DMM Advisory to stay informed.
