Can I mail a letter with the old $0.51 stamp?

I have a $0.51 stamp, can I use it to send a letter or is it garbage? Current stamp price is $0.52. Thanks.

Yes but you need to add an extra cent stamp.

you can send it. Most post offices are very generous and let the 1cent thing slide.

They process it anyways. Or you could write an IOU on the envelope in case they really need that 1 cent.

That's why I always buy Canada Post permanent marked P stamp. No need to buy penny stamp when price rise every year.

And also, stock up on P stamp when Stooples or SDM have it on sale, usually near the end of the year, before CP rack up the price next year.

Remember stamp price always go up, never down.

You might get it "Return to Sender" for correct postage plus a postage fee for the return (the cost of postage stamp). CP will definitely cancel that stamp on your envelope in case you are thinking of getting away for not paying the postage fee. It happened once a long, long time ago. So stick a 1cent stamp on it at the PO ... one thing is you pay no taxes on that 1cent stamp. :D

You will all get your mail returned to you. From there, a new thread will be created complaining about how cheap Canada Post is :rolleyes:
Deal with it.
