[Costco] Canada Post Stamps - Buy "P" stamps while you can (price going from $0.63 to $0.85)
Anyways, I was at Costco today and they were still selling the permanent stamps for $0.60 each ($59.99 for 100 stamps). I'm assuming you can still pick up permanent stamps anywhere right now until Canada Post gives stores new stamps, so you may as well stock up now on PERMANENT stamps.
EDIT: Dec 12 2013
Most Canada Post locations are no longer selling P stamps, same for some pharmacies.
Costco is still selling their 100 rolls for $59.99 but this could be YMMV very shortly.
On March 31, 2014, Canada Post plans to launch a
new tiered stamp pricing structure.
• New prices will be launched for the
customers that buy stamps in booklets and
coils, representing 98 per cent of the volume
sold in this category. The price (per stamp)
will be $0.85, up from $0.63 today for letters
0-30 g mailed within Canada.
To assist in minimizing the effect of successive Lettermail rate increases, the
basic domestic letter rate will be offered at $0.63 until March 31, rather than
the regulated rate increase to $0.65 in January 2014 as per the five-year
pricing plan that took effect in 2010. Other Lettermail and USA/international
letter rates will also remain at 2013 levels during the same period.
Canadians who already have Permanent™ or “P” stamps will be able to
continue to use them without needing additional postage. However, the sale
of new Permanent or “P” stamps will be suspended until the transition is
