Nope, 'fraid not. It's an urban myth that's done the rounds for years.

Only coins and notes issued by the Bank Of England are legal tender in the UK

Stamps (or just about anything), can be used for legal consideration of goods.



Definition of Legal Tender from the Royal Mint:

Legal tender has a very narrow and technical meaning in the settlement of debts. It means that a debtor cannot successfully be sued for non-payment if he pays into court in legal tender. It does not mean that any ordinary transaction has to take place in legal tender or only within the amount denominated by the legislation.

Both parties to a transaction are free to agree to accept any form of payment whether legal tender or otherwise according to their wishes. In order to comply with the very strict rules governing an actual legal tender transaction it is necessary, for example, to offer the exact amount due because no change can be demanded.

Coins are legal tender throughout the United Kingdom for the following amounts:

£5 (Crown) - for any amount
£2 - for any amount
£1 - for any amount
50p - for any amount not exceeding £10
25p (Crown) - for any amount not exceeding £10
20p - for any amount not exceeding £10
10p - for any amount not exceeding £5
5p - for any amount not exceeding £5
2p - for any amount not exceeding 20p
1p - for any amount not exceeding 20p

It's stupid how much heat this deal gets for the sake of 5%

The average person isn't going to save more than 2 quid, even at Christmas. =/

Not as annoying as if you turned up to buy your 72, and the guy before you bought the last 5,000 =p

Yup. That's the HDUK honeypot for you.
The goons would save more buying their stamps from Staples via Quidco. But lets not confuse 'em :D

Every little helps - I've often wondered why it seems to be only Superdrug that does this?

I don't think the notes issued by Scottish and Irish banks are considered legal tender. I may be wrong though.

Also true, and not even legal tender in Scotland or Northern Ireland for that matter.

Whilst it sounds CRAZY, I think this is true yes. I think it's a bit of a technicality, since people often get "legal tender" and "accepted currency" mixed up.

I buy mine cheaper than this all year round from an online stamp dealers, there are a few around, just google 'discount stamps'.
#30
why not simply post the christmas cards earlier and use second class stamps?

i'm sure this would be within the ability of anyone who is organised enough to be interested in a 5% saving.
#31
vtailor yep its true i work for royal mail and they always give us a xmas card with a full sheet of 50 first class stamps in it every year the useally give them to us either a week before december or the first week of december.

but this year it may be early because royal mail are implimenting the big delivery restreucture that has to be completed by november 28th which means much later de4liverys and also massive delays are expected weve already posted our feelings that any changes should be done after xmas but they say it has to be started and finished by november 28th believe me the countrys gonna be up in arms about how **** it is this xmas.
in my area they want us to start work at 7am and work until 5pm delivering but if someone goes sick that delivery will have to be delivered after 5pm but weve all said in our office that we cant deliver past 5pm because we all have small kids so the stance is if it doesnt get delivered that day it gets put back until the next day or delivered as soon as possible last year we were still delivering xmas parcels in mid january it was distgusting and management wouldnt take on extra staff too help with deliverys :(
#32
I have never found a difference in the time for delivery of letters between 1st and 2nd class, so why are there 2nd class stamps still around?

noo u cant get nus discount on stamps, top ups and baby milk
#34
drbrum the reason theres still first and second is because each has been set a different delivery standard.
no matter what 1st class has to be delivered that day or the office can get fined if found out but 2nd class can sometimes get left to be delivered next day if the office is having a bad day or bulk postings such as council letters .
but in our area we try and class 2nd as 1st so we deliver them as soon as they arrive.

BEWARE!!! Check your receipt afterwards to make sure Superdrug hasn't charged you full price! Between poor backroom scanner/computer programming and some pig-ignorant counter staff (certainly in my area), you might end up paying full price in Superdrug anyhow, despite their promotion of a discount.
#36
My financial worries are now over.
My wife and I are now going on a month`s holiday to Barbados.buying a brand new car and moving to a nicer,bigger house.
A whopping 2p saving!!!
Thank you Royal Mail!!!

The fact that you'd have to pick over the receipt to notice you'd been overcharged is what makes this not a particularly hot deal...
#38
Epic, life changing deal. Thanks!
banned#39
Still available if you need 1st class stamps for christmas.
#40
This says it expires 4 January, but my local Superdrug has a sign up saying that it ends 24 December, so worth checking. Definitely a deal to go and stock up on, what with the announcement today of 1st class stamps rising in price!
