WASHINGTON (AP) -- Nothing like a finding a bargain in stamps.

The Postal Service says, shortly after plans were announced to increase first-class postal rates by a penny, sales of the ForeverStamp jumped by $95 million.

The rate goes to 42 cents on May 12th. Before then, you can buy Forever Stamps for 41 cents each and use them without penalty after the increase.

The Postal Service says it has sold $2.3 billion worth of the new stamps since they were introduced less than a year ago.
