Us Weekly Increases Newsstand Price

Us Weekly — a magazine you can depend on for content like “stars’ sexiest bikini selfies” — is increasing its newsstand price. The celebrity title will now sell for $4.99 an issue.

The bump comes exactly one week after People increased its price to $4.99, which prompted OK!Star and the National Enquirer to follow suit. 

The New York Post reports that the move to up Us Weekly’s price was debated inside Wenner Media, but ultimately they decided the magazine had to be on par with other glossies in its market.
