Stamps are 57 (???) cents here plus tax. Stamps to the US are close to a $1.

I think.

USPS is okay. They're decently fast, but I hate their tracking. It's so horrible they shouldn't even have a tracking system.

UPS is pretty good, but I like FedEx the best. They're a bit expensive compared to others, but they're super fast and the package tracking is VERY good.

USPS tracking... hah. Fast... hah. From IL to here... slowest thing I've ever waited for and it said the tracking # was invalid the entire time.

They were okay in terms of speed. It came by the estimated ship date. I just hate the tracking.

Now I hear there are these "forever stamps" you can buy now at the post office where the rate never changes. You can still use these stamps 10-100 years down the road even when stamp cost rise to $100 for first class and you paid 41 cents for a forever stamp, lol.
