Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5 am and News at 9 pm.

CNN-- Saturday, January 25th will be the last day stamps will cost you 46 cents. Starting on Sunday, the new cost of stamps will be 49 cents. The U.S. Postal Service is raising the price to keep up with inflation and recoup losses suffered during the Great Recession. 

Also to go up will be the cost of mailing a post card. Instead of 33 cents, they will now cost you 34 cents to mail. 

However, there is a way to keep from paying more. "Forever Stamps" are always valid for first-class mail use, no matter what you paid for them and even if prices go up in the future.
