I couldn't find them for sale on their site so assume only in store:thumbsup:

it's running for 2 weeks from tomorrow
just been in and asked

Any idea when it ends??

doubt you would get NUS discout on this

As these are legal tender, can I buy a load and go down the pub with them to pay for my night out at a 5% discount?

haha i like it:giggle:

I like this, something you need to buy for the time of year with a genuine saving. Hot Vote, i mean you don't expect to be able to save money on stamps.

Under the Coinage Act 1971, only notes and coins issued by the Bank of England are legal tender, legal tender being money that a person, corporation or govt body must accept in settlement of a debt. There are limits to the amount of money you can make a person accept in some types of coins, e.g. only up to 20p in coppers is legal tender. Notes may be used in limitless quantities. You can accept stamps, chewing gum, cigarettes, Raleigh Pulsar bicycles or just about anything else in settlement of a debt if you wish but nobody can force you to.

if people are going to be using stamps for sending tons of xmas cards why not save even more money and buy 2nd class stamps and write & post your cards a little earlier thats what i do??

With the 5% discount on first class stamps, what will the difference in price between first and second class be?

Based on 1 stamp (but I think they only sell books)
1st class = 34p (less 5% = 32.3p)
2nd class = 24p (8.3p less than 1st)

I don't think I would send first class like snowbrow 10p is a big dif for a day or two.
2nd class seems best option

Thanks will pass the info on

Why not just put your recepients' address on the back as the 'sender' and put your own address on the front and post them with no stamps at all. They'll then all be returned to the 'sender' as you'll refuse to pay the excess when they try to deliver them. That way you wont need any stamps at all and all your Xmas cards will be delivered free!!!!

Would that actually work? :thinking::thinking::thinking:

I agree totally, but a bunch of 34p stamps could come in for sending larger items (big cards, DVDs, etc) by 2nd-class, to make up the bulk of the cost. I've recently paid £1.52 to send a "2nd class packet", 4 @34p less 5% + 16p would save 7p.

Are these marked '34p' or '1st Class' and does it matter in above case?

It sure does and for some strange reason it's not something the Post Office are too keen on publicising! Try cutting a stamp in half horizontally and sticking each half on an envelope addressed to yourself and I bet you you'll receive both! I found an article recently called '50 things 'They' dont want the public to know'. Both these tricks were on the list, but I don't condone either.

Close them, already

why and how - what? Why does it work and how? If you hold a stamp up to the light you'll see a shiny strip along the middle which is 'read' by the sorting machines and then 'deactivated' so the stamp cant be reused. But as the sorting machines read each letter incredibly fast they cant tell if its a whole or half stamp they are reading. So a stamp cut in two would be read as two stamps.

Sounds like an urban myth to me. I have just held a stamp to the light and there is no strip

Look at a stamp straight on and then twist it backwards and forwards and you'll see a shiny strip in the centre.
