Is it too late to request a higher salary?

I had an interview yesterday and said that I wanted $55k per year plus benefits. I received an email later that say saying that they needed my address to send the offer letter for that salary. I asked about benefits, but didn't think to ask about yearly raises or bonuses... Would a counter offer be out of place?

Wait for the offer letter. Don't counter offer with out looking at the offer letter. Since you have already told them $55,000. I would suggest to work at that salary for few months and then talk to your manager for an increase. That would be more professional and appropiate way if you really need a job

Don't give him your adress its probably some old guy sending you emails so he can come over to your house & r**e you.

You are in a very sticky situation. You should have set a price at the interview. You ask for more, before you are hired, and you run the risk of NOTgetting the job because of your apparent greed and wishy washey ways.
