    posting large letter above 100g via post box?

    e.g xbox game? Can you do this?
    i've heard you can do this - 2nd class large letetr stamp plus 2nd class normal stamp. I usually go to post office to do this but if i can just do this its more convenient. At post office if costs me 76p to do so.
    any help or links to royal mail website explaining this?

    A 2nd Class Lrg Letter stamp is worth 47p and and regular 2nd class stamp 30p, so yes, you'd be able to put one of each on to send something 2nd class weighing 100g-250g.

    so i can do that and just pop in post box?
    that stops a lot of stress. Is it just the amount in stamps? e.g if i wanted to do first class i could do 2x second normal and one first normal = 30,30,38 = 98 usually 91?

    anyone..?

    I think in the long run it'll be worth taking even low value items into the post office at the very least to get a proof of postage. You'd be fine doing what you said above but it'd be sods law that something would go missing then that'll be when the stress/hassle kicks in.

    thanks for that but no-one is still answering my OP..

    Yes you can do that, I do it all the time. I did a game yesterday with a 1st large letter stamp and a regular 1st stamp.

    but its 91 and that would equal 62 + 38 = 90?

    firstly it's 90p and secondly add those two together again.

    sorry my bad:oops:
    although im sure its 91p. I awlays thought it was 15p more to post first class.

    I've posted low value items like that before.

    However i sent some stuff to my brother before Xmas like this and the package went walkabouts,so if you're sending stuff you've sold i wouldn't risk it,i'd take it to the PO.

    as long as you have the right amount of stamps on it and it fits in the box then yes you can

    You can use any current stamps, as they'll just be counted as their value, rather than what class they are, if you see what I mean - a 2nd class stamp would be classed as a 30p stamp, and a first class stamp 39p.

    If you ever buy stamps in bulk, always buy 1st class stamps that just say '1st' on them rather than 39p - that way if postage ever increases, the worth of these stamps increases in line with the rises :thumbsup:
