Superdrug 5% off stamps from 7 February

--------------------------------

What's the deal?

Superdrug is offering 5% off first-class stamps from Thursday 7 February until Sunday 2 March 2008. While it's often just as quick and cheaper to buy second-class, if you do use first-class often anyway, then stock up while the offer's on.

What they'll cost at Superdrug:
Book of 4 first-class for large letters: £1.82 (Normal price: £1.92)
Book of 6 first-class: £1.94 (Normal price: £2.04)
Book of 12 first-class: £3.87 (Normal price: £4.08)
Remember in some ways stamps are inflation proof so stock up

Provided the stamps say 'first' rather than having a cost on them (e.g. 34p) then even when stamp prices go up - they're still useable as first-class stamps. Thus there isn't a problem stocking up on them when you can get them.

Good find!

That's right you have to make sure that they say 1st class on them and not the actual price. This will ensure that you have samps that are going to go up in price... :)

This isn't a Post Office deal. It's not even a Royal Mail deal, it's a SUPERDRUG deal!

Thanks, voted hot :thumbsup:
#5
Great news, get yourself £50 worth and then flog them at the post office - sweet deal.

This is one case where I would rather pay the normal price and support my local post office. They need all the business they can get at the moment.

I'm sure they get them cheaper than 5% off, otherwise they really wouldn't exist, let alone be struggling :thumbsup:

You can always buy them cheaper online from stamps dealers. I buy mine from [url]www.discountstamps.co.uk[/url] who have always been fine and there regular prices are cheaper than this, though there are other companies. With prices going up soon this is a double discount!

They have always been this price at Costco.

Apparently they are legal tender so you could cash them in at the post office

Stamps are not legal tender.

Excellent deal will be restocking my supplies from the last time they had this offer on. Particularly good if you do a bit of trading on ebay 5% is always welcome
#14
Great Deal!

Companies must accept stamps as legal tender for a debt :thumbsup:

I'd be surprised if it wasn't just Superdrug taking the hit, not the P.O. I seriously doubt the P.O. would discount a reseller just because they wanted to undercut the face value of a product . The deal is a good one as it's same service for cheaper :)

Are you talking about the Post Office company who after many years of my usage, closed our local branch down because there was another one a bus ride away? Or do you mean the same Post Office company running said branch with 8 counters manned by 2 or if you're lucky 3 people making everyone wait at least 20 minutes in the queue? Or do you mean the same Post Office company who has recently been modernising their stores so now they look more like a London Underground station in rush-hour? They now seem to have more staff milling around asking if the customer need help 'cause it's chaos and no-one is clear what to do where!

We need P.O. counters to be local, community providers not profit making monsters. I would pay more for a stamp if the service was consistent - i.e. "next day" did really mean "next day" which is what 1st class was supposed to mean (now subtly reworded of course). Delivery staff seem to change as and when which breaks the long term relationship that so many [elderly especially] people had come to expect.

I've been using 'print your own' postage and it's very easy. Ask about it in the local P.O. and you'll get "that's nothing to do with us, just drop it in the box". I think that highlights the issue - there isn't just one company, they've spun themselves off into a few that all 'work together' to form a business :( The average joe just doesn't care, [s]he just wants something to get where it's supposed to in the time expected!

Stamps are simply not legal tender in the UK, though the term has a specific legal meaning, and refers to something that a creditor cannot refuse by way of payment of the debt.

Stamps can be refused by a creditor, or a company, hardly surprisingly. If they were legal tender, you could pay off a £250k mortgage with them! And get 5% off for buying them from Superdrug! Coins are only legal tender up to certain specified limits, too, so you can't pay off your mortgage with a truckload of 20p coins.

The T&C stop you from using the 10% against stamps - is this applied in practice, though?

Yes - our tills are blocked from knocking discount off stamps and other items.

The 10% off is a store feedback survey and can be used when you spend £10 or more subject to T&C's
