This week, the U.S. Postal Service made it official: The cost of a first-class stamp will
rise from 34 cents to 37 cents on June 30th. The rate hike will accelerate companies'
moves toward electronic billing, according to GartnerG2 analyst Kenneth Kerr. However,
Forrester Research analyst Ron Shevlin told the E-Commerce Times, the increase is unlikely
to change consumers' opinion and will have "little effect at best" on the number of people
choosing to pay bills online.

Online and saving money? You Bet! I recently called the Peppermill Motel in Reno for reservations. I was looking at their website when the Rep. answered. I asked about a Friday and Saturday rate. The least expensive was $119 and $139, respectively. I said, "well on your website the rates are $49 &59". He told me that if I ordered online, the rates are much lower. It pays to check online for a lot of things. I will continue to use online banking for bills, because I refuse to pay the postage.
