    I think it's pretty lame that people went out of their way to complain!
    I found out years ago as the mail room at work has no mail coming in that day. I think they deserve the day off personally.

    I have just been to the post office. there is now two rates for normal postage. $1.50 if you want a quicker delivery, and $1.00 for snail pace. I just sent our statements for $1.00 each envelope. I think we will be changing some old habits. I would have thought the reductions in just normal letters would have been recovered by the huge increase in the parcel post. oh well, such is life, as they say. marie.

    Default Postage stamp cost increasing to $1 - will this effect you?

    Changing with the times shouldn't automatically mean a huge price jump! Aust Post have other sources of revenue e.g. they also charge for access to their address data, which lots of private companies and govt departments use for mailing and address verification. Their pricing changed for this a few years ago when they realised how much they had undervalued it. I think they have probably suffered from complacent and unimaginative management over the years and that's why we have to pay for it now!
