The Postal Service promises us another raise in stamp prices -- to 42-cents next year. But they're also pitching the idea of a "forever stamp." Buy it at today's prices and you can use it anytime down the road for a first class envelope -- regardless of stamp hikes in the future.
The Washington Post sums it up this way:
Consumers could squirrel away forever stamps for months or years; they essentially would gain value every time rates increase.Now if Exxon will do the same thing with a gas can -- we might be onto something. (WashPost)
