NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

If you have something to mail, you may want to drop it in the closest mailbox Saturday night.

Yes, the price of a first-class postage stamp is going up... again.

Starting Sunday, it will cost 49 cents to mail a letter, instead of 46 cents.

The increase is part of a 6-percent 'across-the-board' hike by the post office.

If you use a lot of stamps, you can save some money by stocking up on ‘forever’ stamps , they are always good, no matter what price you paid for them.
