At Stratford mall they have arranged free postage too
mrandmrsharris
We did this last year, Let your child write a letter (or a bit of art in our case) Then write the child's name & address on the letter, Pop it in a stamped envelope to the address above & post.
It's 'free' in effect as your not paying for the reply letter but are paying the cost of a stamp/envelope.
I put 2 in one envelope & both received replies.


​I put 4 in one envelope a few years ago, with 4 stamps so I wasn't being cheeky and only one child received a reply. Done it every year, sending 4 in total for the last 4 years and only had 4 replies on one occasion.
Always feels slightly futile and they come back scattered thru December so I need to hide them til they all come incase one doesn't get a letter.
I know it's free so I'm not expecting much but there aren't any guarantees.
Think I may do the nspcc this year instead

I don't understand how this is a 'deal.' You're purchasing stamps at their normal value? Does anyone actually take the time to look at the stamp design other than collectors?

Did you even read what the poster said in their opening comment. Yes, it's not a deal but many people are taking advantage of it. I've been after these so heat added. Thank you OP.

Still very much alive - this is still available in most areas. Mods - please unexpire. :)
I find it takes around 5 minutes a day to log on and update the information they require . I live just several doors away from the post office so its handy for me. The used stamps that arrive with the mail I receive I donate to charity to help them fund-raise.
Tried to do this lots of times. it no joy :(
I haven't been receiving the stamps? I've done quite a few trials for them. I've received the odd £5 lovetoshop vouchers.

So the stamps you receive monthly, are they used for the letters you post?
no. they are yours to keep.

My son had his reply from Santa today - a card with a star picture to colour. He was happy to get a card from the real Santa!
oh dear
Hi folks, do people send plain small envelopes or the slightly bigger ones,A6 size? just wondered if to buy a Christmas patterned envelope or do they stick anything on it to return?
used to be better and the 1 nice thing the royal mail did before they started charging. They profit in this via the stamp costs. My kid just posts his letter to santa in postbox as usual (without a stamp, and usually without our address). And I do my own letter in word, takes a bit of time to make it look nice and North Pole-ish but it always looks good.

Many thx heat added
I was a postman for 6 years, some of the junk mail was ridiculous, I had to deliver leaflets offering garden services and loft insulation, conservatories etc to hundreds of flats in high-rise buildings which had no gardens etc. You knew it went straight into the bin. The sheer waste of thousands of pages of colour printed glossy paper is really criminal.

How about instead of us having to complete a form to opt out the post office have to get us to complete a form to opt in!
Won't work, because it has nothing to do with the Post Office. It'll be a bit like popping into Specsavers to get your teeth checked.
Don't forget you won't get your farmfood vouchers of you do this.
I normally use the free postage envelopes to return misc junk mail back. so barclaycard get a Chinese menu etc.

50 searches per day, eh? Might be good for coders of CMS.
Not if you have a site with decent traffic.
If you run a site that sells jumbo jets, 50 orders is a good day. ;)

In all seriousness, there are plenty of CMS that don't need 50 searches a day, such as small repair shops. If the limit is reached, they would go back to manual entry. If they go over 50 regularly, the dev can offer a paid-for service.

People like free, remember. That's why you're in the freebie section. ;)
ipodtouchdude
I work at Royal Mail (Data Entry) and adding post codes to your letters makes it easier and quicker to process your mail and that means your letters/parcels will get to their destination quicker. Also if you could write in block letter its less likely we will enter the destination address incorrectly.
Writing it in legible, large letters would also help the postman be able to read them too.
The amount of Christmas cards that don't get delivered because they can't be read is huge.
People might think it's cute to let your 3 year old write the address on an envelope - chances are it won't get delivered.

He doesn't have to remember. If someone opts out of door to door mail, it's flagged up on his/her fitting whilst sorting the Mail. They then miss that house out when putting the d2d leaflets in.
Posties load their own pouches. It's not done for them. [/quote]Well my Posties for the last 5 years either can't read or are too incompetent to follow these instructions. The torrent of unaddressed mail flows through my letterbox relentlessly, regardless of how many times I've "opted out". Even having a friendly word with your current postie only has a short term effect because they change so regularly these days. I don't blame the postmen, it's Royal Mail's fault for being unwilling to implement an effective system which would dent their income. What a waste of resources - the cost to councils and taxpayers to uplift and recycle or dispose of, the environmental damage of tonnes of unnecessary and unwanted paper waste ending up in landfill .... and the list goes on.

Now if David Cameron would just get his head out of his (backside) and do something to help these people that would be an even better deal oO.
why should he or the taxpayer? this is the reason insurance exists
Because although he may not seem to do a very good job he is supposed to be running the country, and there is tax payers who live there who would say differently to you. I'm sure you would feel differently if your house was completely flooded and your families Christmas and life had been turned upside down.
I have sufficient insurance to cover such a thing, wouldn't bother me in the slightest if I had to spend Christmas in a hotel somewhere at the insurers expense until the mess gets sorted out.
if people haven't got such insurance they cant really moan about being left with nothing, having to start over etc etc
Might sound harsh, but you don't drive around without insurance or with the minimum legally requires and then moan to the government to buy you a new car when you write it off.
These are peoples homes not just buildings yeah ok things can be brought again but not all their personal cherished possessions. Baby books, photos of their kids their weddings all those things that you can't just replace that would hurt me way more than any of those other material things. What I am saying is something should be done to prevent this from happening and in my say yes it is a government problem no they cant stop acts of nature but they should be putting in place actions to prevent this from happening again.

Your source is mistaken as the mdec staff don't answer the letters. We are busy processing the Christmas mail.
They are correct about the lapland mail.

maybe not in the office you work in, I know they are processed in Plymouth.

Why would I spend 63p for a generic thing like this, I could do it myself for free, hey kid write your list I will send it to father Christmas, on xmas day leave a note with the presents and dont forget to point him out in the sky on xmas eve when the iss passes, I believe its passing on the correct day this year, my kid loved it last year.
Wouldn't be so bad if it was freepost with a minimum £1 donation to charity but this is just a way to sell more over priced stamps.
I don't think the word "tightwad" covers it. Look out for the three ghost this Xmas.


Oh I am so hurt by your accusation that not providing a private company with 63p for a letter I could write myself, will result in visits from spirits pleading with me to turn away from sin. Because of course Christmas is all about commercialism, the Christmas spirit is that of filling the coffers of the rich and not at all about the birth of the son of god.

They have to have an address as that is where it is getting posted. I have had similar in the past and this is how they come a piece of card with a stamp on. Imagine a postcard. Unless they package them up now which sort of defeats their purpose?

We got ours today. Nice A5 card thanking my daughter for her letter. The card isn't personalised, but the envelope was addressed to her by name. Not bad for the cost of a stamp though
We sent ours at the weekend I hope we get a reply :-)
I do this every year and it's great for the kids. Never used a stamp though.. We handed ours in at our post office and they said that's fine, didn't even mention needing a stamp.
So do you need two stamps or one?
I guess you need one on the outgoing letter and one for return??
I posted last week for my little girl but was told in the post office I didn't need a stamp and just to make sure my address was on the actual letter and they checked the address on front of envelope as above. Thought it was worth mentioning.

Depends how you look at it (how you place it - on the bottom, upside-down or on a side) :)
Missed delivery of a RM Parcel today. The posties notice looked the usual affair till I read the parcel was available to pick up not in my town anymore but a good distance away and would take most of the day on public transport and be fairly costly to do so too.

There was a fee if I wanted it delivered to a local PO but again the wonkers offered only certain PO. I wanted to pick this up from the Town PO...but the choice did not exist.

Do they actually want to give a decent (LOL) service anymore or what?

In the end I went for redelivery to the house, and I didn't see any space for giving the postie a message (like its OK to leave it next door) so if that delivery fails who knows what enlightened advice will come my way!

Talk about making it difficult.

OMG, that shows how brainwashed we have become by Royal Fail. we now see a 'cut' to what is in truth a sky high price to begin with. Before the introduction of pay by size, this would've cost you about a quid to send.

How this get's hot is beyond me. I guess the same people that got suckered in by the 'we make a loss on every stamped letter we deliver' BS a few years ago, only because nobody used stamps anymore, plenty of profit was made on each bag of Mail just that it came from business franked/prepaid & junk mail.

RM deliver nationwide for the same rate and have a far lower starting rate than anyone else as well as better infrastructue. Their size requirements are overly stringent and i suspect that was an attempt to raise profits before the sale so i won't defend those. But they are still cheaper for certain items and destinations.

For 1-2kg and if it fits in their small parcel size it is cheaper than hermes and inpost. It does lack tracking but it is good for cheap items.
RM have a lower starting point than anyone else, because no one is allowed to go as low as they are. Being in every street everyday shoving s*** through most doors should make them cheaper, but they've still gone up a ridiculous amount over the last 5-10 years WAY above inflation, constantly claim to be making a loss on certain items (ignoring what goes with it to subsidise) while telling us they've had a record year for xmas deliveries. Every other word they sprout contradicts the ones in between
davidian84
Not really fair comparisons, myhermes chose not to deliver to some uk residents, royal mail can't. Also royal mail has to pay workers a proper wage.

This is such a good point. Also many here slamming royal mail here forget that they are obligated to provide a universal service meaning they deliver to all parts of the UK for the same price which effects their core operating costs (an issue that doesn't affect some of its competition)

You'll also find that Royal mails speed of service and reliability is better than its competition. 93% of first class delivered next working day is pretty impressive.
will continue to use inpost via interparcel for £1.91.
£50 compensation, tracked, and proof of delivery. Damaged item was paid in full within 3 days
others collect from you and its as cheap. but if your not in Hermes, for instance, throw stuff over your back gate! and if you miss a dhl delivery its not just a trip to your local post office to collect, it can be up to 20 miles away. so there is no competition IMHO.
Me Hermes all the way. Quick, efficient and cheap. About time someone gave RM a run for their money. Had enough of their high prices and below par service that has been degraded from what was once excellent service

If its Ebay item we have stopped selling international because of this reason, now only sell UK. However, when someone requests and really want it we always say that we take no responsiblity or accept any loss on messages we send.
I've spent a fortune sending parcels to Norway. I learnt my lessen when a few that I had sent unsigned for went 'missing' as soon as leaving the Uk. The ones that did manage to get to Norway would then sit there on there end for days, even weeks, on end... even though I had paid for delivery to the door of and signature of the recipient.
Be cautious of the 'signed for' aspect of this service. I used it to send an eBay item,which although according to Royal Mail had been signed for, the buyer denied it and Paypal asked for a proof of signature, which isn't actually part of the service!! I lost my goods and payment as due to the lack of signature Paypal went in their favour!

"Signature on delivery
A signature is taken on delivery for items sent using International Tracked & Signed and International Signed. However, we do not provide a copy of the signature to you as part of the service"
you need to consider the compensation for loss as well that you get .. untracked (half the cost of tracked) is something £20 on a discretionary basis (they say they "may" pay it), on tracked it was something like £50 again on a discretionary basis

I'm not that fussed about tracked as long as it has compensation/proof of delivery is in place

Lets hope the DE post firm enters the UK market for this type of service and drives down the cost
This deal was meant to highlight the saving compared to the existing Airsure
and International Signed For.

Royal Mail is expensive but if you need to send small parcels abroad and you
want to be able to track them and get a signature from the receiver, what other
company offers a cheaper service??

If anybody knows of a parcel service that will track the parcel all the way
(not just to Uk border) AND get a signature the other end for less that £10.15

Great, thanks
The weight is restrictive, I've been using Hermes they collect from my door and are far cheeper if your sending over 1Kg.

Most postman said it was a joke, you can't send any "shoes" like they state for £2.60 lol

Most shoeboxes will be within 16cm x 25cm x35cm - it's one of the things RM are trying to get us to post with them.

You still get charged the weight and any high heels wouldn't send for £2.60 hence why "from"

Pack the heels on their sides in bubble wrap, ladies heels are unlikely to weigh more than 1Kg.
Admittedly, some boxes are quite heavy though.
I'm just trying to help people out - many ladies shoes will mail for £2.60.
Worth remembering though, that compensation for loss or damage is a measly £20 for standard 2nd class. (can be £50 with signed for).

I remember when postage was based purely on weight.

Its so complicated now.

Yep. And you also get quizzed at the counter about what's in the parcel.
All aerosols, perfumes, aftershaves etc. have to be declared at this point and ID8000 stickers attached to denote the "hazzard".
The process takes ages.
