The U.S. Postal Service filed a notice Wednesday with the Postal Regulatory Commission to increase its shipping prices across the board during the holiday season to combat the increased demand.

The expected increase will start at 12 a.m. Central Time on Oct. 2 until 12 a.m. Central Jan. 22, 2023. This will apply to packages being shipped through Priority Mail Express, Priority Mail, First-Class Package Service, Parcel Select and USPS Retail Ground. International shipping will not be affected.

"This temporary rate adjustment is similar to ones in past years that help cover extra handling costs to ensure a successful peak season," the USPS said in a news release.

"These temporary rates will keep USPS competitive while providing the agency with the revenue to cover extra costs in anticipation of peak-season volume," the USPS said.

The USPS has previously increased its prices during the holidays.

If fully approved, commercial flat-rate boxes and envelopes will increase by 75 cents, while retail flat-rate boxes and envelopes will increase by 95 cents.

The increases for first-class package service, Parcel select ground, and USPS retail ground will vary by zone and weight. There is a list of each zone versus each weight in the release. Packages above 26 pounds can expect a $3-$5 price increase.
