Found 4th Feb 2014
Went into my Sainsbury's Local to get 6 1st class stamps, the lady told me they were selling the christmas packs of 12 off for £4.92 which is 41p a stamp, I got quite a few packs as a pack of 6 is £3.60. Worth checking to see if its nationwide

41p for a stamp?. I think the last time I posted a letter the stamps were about 24p or something lol. It's very rare that I even receive letters in the post with an actual stamp on them these days. Still I'm sure its a good deal so heated it up

Brilliant Deal!

Which store did you get this in?

I'll take them all

Yup - I'll buy the lot!

Good offer. If you miss out on these I've seen books of unused stamps on eBay - less than their value.

I paid for a bus ticket with some 1st class stamps last week.



Classy.

Yep First Class letter = 60p nowadays! (Haven't bought any for years as stocked up with '1st' & '2nd' many moons ago.

Bought when they were 46p each no doubt...

Great idea! Do you think I could get to London on the train using stamps as payment? Wonder how many books I'd need? X)

Did you really?

Don't really mind paying 60p for a 1st class letter. To get an envelope from Lands End to John o' Groats, next day for that price isn't bad!

Also, as a side note stamps aren't legal tender in the UK - meaning that a bus driver could accept a stamp as form of currency but doesn't have to, in the same way a shop owner can refuse your payment if you pay for something worth 21p in pennies.

karlie88

Yep.Although it depends on whether the conductor is happy to accept them.


Okay understood, although they are still not legal tender.

HTH, must try my local branch.

Good deal.

I stocked up on prepaid envelopes from asda on a clearance about 18 months ago. 10 pre stamped for £1. got about 50 packs lol

shocking the price of stamps now - I have flown to Spain cheaper!!!!

Thanks OP voted hot

Just a simple question.....has anyone found these elsewhere?

One-off finds are getting too prevalent on here now.

I think my boyfriend used a stamp to get here from France, he said he came in a french letter!oO

How much? Bought tons ages ago a while ago at 21p thankfully they seem to be lasting

I had a one-month stint at the Isle of Man a couple of years ago - to send a letter from there to the UK cost 38p versus the 46p within the mainland. Mail would get shipped to the mainland overnight and treated as first class. So essentially, you'd get the same standard of service (plus air shipping) for cheaper! And now it costs 42p, as opposed to the 60p here!

My nan sent out 111 christmas cards this year all with 1st class stamps, she will like this deal...

I bet no one has ever posted a letter from one to the other.
That is only ever used as an example by post office apologists.

Anyone know a place to get 1st and 2nd class large stamps cheaper... I lost so much money in my small ebay business jsut because of stamps. The stamps actually cost more than what I pay for the items I sell.....

I use First Class Stamps on a daily basis so this is super hot from me. Anyone know if this is just Sainsbury's Local shops or the big stores too?

Has anyone used discountedstamps.co.uk before and can vouch for them?



As I'm also looking for a reputable place to get cheaper stamps after discountedstampsforpostage.co.uk got shut down as it was a scam. Dodged a bullet on that one.

Total tripe. Stamps are not legal tender in the UK.

I always wonder how many people who live at lands End see letters to someone in John o'Groats. I estimate no more than 11 letters a year.

I highly doubt it - unless the driver was paying his fair out if his own pocket, otherwise his boss would have a thing or two to say about it.

good deal if you've got to buy stamps... but like many others, I've given up using the postal service due to the price. Sad, but true. I start delivering my xmas cards from October onwards as and when I've visiting people anyway... I just leave them with them! money saved!

Do you mean almost all the letters you receive have been stamped with a franking machine or .....?!!! oO

You did very well mate. I have done the same. Savings account hardly pay any interest these days. The only thing is I am sending more and more emails than putting letters in a letterbox. That is another reason why my stamps are lasting!

20hrs later and almost 900 degrees heat..........can anyone confirm national as suggested?
