Want to get a 2% return on an investment in just one day?

Buy a Forever Stamp from the Post Office on January 21st, 2012 and mail something on January 22nd (well, on the 23rd because the 22nd is a Sunday). On January 22nd, the post office is set to increase [3] the current stamp price [4] of a first class letter from 44 cents to 45 cents. Also increasing will be the price of mailing a post card, a three cent increase to 32 cents. Letters to Canada and Mexico will now cost 5 cents more to 85 cents. Letters anywhere else outside the United States will see a stamp increase of 7 cents to $1.05 a pop.

Forever Stamps, as you’ll remember, can be used on any first class letters so buying them today means you don’t need to find penny stamps come January 22nd.
