Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that postage stamps were classed as currency?

If that's true, then everyone in the country should spend their life savings on this offer and then sell the stamps back to the post office for an instant 5% profit!

This could be the best HotUKDeal EVER!

Well it depends how you define currency.

If you mean something you can trade for something else then yes postage stamps are currency. However so might a goat and 2 sheep be defined as currency if you could find someone who will accept them for something else.

Postage stamps are just a form of evidence of pre-paying a fee for postal services.

Superdrug have run this promotion for the past few years at Christmas, but it's a good deal if you plan to use the stamps you buy within the year. If you are not going to use the stamps within that time, you'd be better off putting the money in a high interest savings account.

Ak type'o not

19th Nov 2006 to 12th Dec 2006.

Should be

29th Nov 2006 to 12th Dec 2006. sorry :giggle: :roll:

Aslong as the stamps have 1st or 2nd on them and not a value then fill your boots since they will keep past any future price increase.

You only get c. 80% of the value of the stamps, if I recall correctly.

I was always told that satmps were legal tender, in fact at my wedding 10 years ago my best man recalled a scam I considered when I was 12 when it was possible to buy a book of 51p worth of stamps from a machine for 50p and sell them back for a penny profit!

Needless to say my brother is now a multi millionaire and I'm very much NOT!!!!!!!

You can buy stamps at Costco for a similar discount all year round

They're not, and most people don't even know what 'legal tender' means.

It doesn't mean 'you can spend it in shops or on busses' etc :) It's a legal term and means something that cannot be denied as repayment of a legally found debt (roughly - it gets complicated when taking non-english law into account). Stamps are not included.

Shops, busses, businesses etc. 'can' accept stamps but only if they want to, much like they can accept cabbages if they want to. They don't 'have to' accept anything, including money.

Saying that, if you look on Ebay there are plenty of people selling sheets of stamps at about 70-80% face value...even bigger bargain!!
#17
Most of these auctions and this offer are now useless for Ebayers, since the royal mail started the 3-tier postage system.

Unless you sell stuff that's skinnier than 5mm then you're unlikley to get useful use out of normal 1st class stamps. You'd be sticking single stamps on things and still having to pay the excess and that's assuming the post office will let you do that. Take more time and hassle then the 5% is worth to most people.

[SIZE=2]If these are first class stamps (as opposed to 32p stamps) then they can still be used for full or part payment to send any UK domestic mail item. They are treated as being worth 32p or whatever price is in force for a first class letter when you send the item.[/SIZE]


[SIZE=2]Do superdrug also sell first class 'large letter' stamps too, and more importantly are these included in this promotional offer?[/SIZE]


[SIZE=2]For ebayers who numerous varying weight items, then my deal offering 8% off stamps (mov £50.00) will probably be better suited. [/SIZE]
