Good deal.
Superdrug usually offer 5% off first class stamps around Christmas time but this is better as it includes all types of stamps.
The price of stamps is only going to increase and as these have the 2nd and 1st (not monetary values e.g. 50p and 60p) they're a good investment to keep for the future if you're someone who sends a lot of post.

I bought loads before the last price increase so am stocked up for a while but it's a good deal for those who don't have any left over from before the price increase!

and maybe a touch of quidco!

•Cashback is not available on the following products: magazine subscriptions from WHSmith, postage stamps, eBook downloads, postage stamps.

Super hot. Thank you!

Stocked up before the last price increase, but any discount on stamps is good.

What do you mean?

I'm not totally convinced that it's a good idea to buy in advance and this is why. If you look closely at a stamp, they now have circular perforation within the centre of the stamp, and if they are not used for some time, it is possible the centre bit fails to leave the paper when the stamp is lifted, then the PO is likely to make a charge as it looks as though the stamp has been re-used.

I mean that you can buy, as I do now that I have run out of the £20ks worth of 35p for 2nd/50p for 1st stamps, 100 2nd class stamps for £45 (or less) delivered, which equates to a 10% discount. 100 1st class are also available for £54 or less...

Easy solution: peel it the right way off...

Do you think the Royal Mail would notice the bit in the middle missing, if they can't spot these X)

Just before the first major price hike I bought £1000s worth of stamps, not one had an issue with the centre section staying attached to the sheet, even after a hot summer stored in a hot room.

If you're after plain 1st and 2nd, eBay is definitely your best bet. It's an easy 10% off - 15-20% if you can wait a week (add all of the listings to your watch list).

Discounts on the lesser used stamps are harder to find though, so this deal does deserve attention.

You can use any smaller stamps to make up a larger amount. £2.60 for example is 1x1st + 4x2nd. Anything more complicated, like special delivery items, you'll need to solve the subset sum problem.

Absolutely. I always go to the PO anyhow as I need proof of postage, so for a £3.70 2nd class small packet example, I do 7 x 2nd class plus 20p from the PO.

Could also do 3x1LL + 2x2nd. Things were more interesting when postage prices were not mostly multiples of 10p. I took pride in using 10 different stamps to exactly pay for a large or intl parcel.

I rather use 2nd class given that they were 30% cheaper at 35p but yes it's great outsmarting RM.

Or cheaper still if you do a Google search for postage discounts, stamp discount, etc. They don't have to pay 10% to ebay so they tend to be cheaper.

5% off = BTGOF (buy twenty, get one free).

Are you using unused/brand new stamps or unfranked stamps? I couldn't seem to find legit stamps at 30% off, though since they started rolling out the new search, it's a wonder you can find anything on Ebay.

unfranked or new? I can see plenty of new ones, but none for massive savings, especially compared to the likes of Costco, on the other hand loads of unfranked at half face value.
