[Canada Post] Permanent stamps - collector's pack 28% off current value

Deal Link:
Price:
26.23
Savings:
28
More offers from Canada Post
Despite recent drastic increase in price of a stamp, Canada Post is still selling old stock of collector's stamp packs at the issuing face value. Greenmoon has found this one to be the best value, since it contains permanent stamps only.

http://www.canadapost.ca/shop/stamp-col ... ution=e1s1

So, basically, for $26.23 you are getting 43 permanent stamps worth $36.55.

However, please note that these packs contain souvenir sheets (non-stickers) which need to be split into single stamps and licked (watered) before using them on an envelope; as well as sticky stamps that are somewhat tricky to peel the backs from. Nevertheless, these are still regular stamps fully accepted by Canada Post for mailing letters or parcels at the current rate of $0.85 per stamp.

Please thank greenmoon for his post, as he was the one who found this deal!

And, don't forget GCR for 3.3% cash back!

EDIT:

Greenmoon found an even hotter deal, where you get an uncut press sheet of perforated stamps. They just need to be licked or watered (old-fashioned style). Here is the link: http://www.canadapost.ca/shop/p-4037811 ... ution=e1s1
You get 90 permanent stamps (current value $76.50) for $53.10 (31% saving!).

I receive a fair bit of mail, from "people who need to mail things", but I've not seen a stamp in ages.

Ok thanks. I tried to read the original post from Greenmoon, but I 've only gotten through a few pages. The description online only lists 22 stamps.

I'll give it a try! Thanks! I need to mail a lot of stuff.

A souvenir sheet is not a single stamp, it's all the stamps of that set, arranged on a single sheet.

Tommy Douglas: The Birth of Medicare - 1 stamp (2012/06/29) = 1 stamp
CFL Teams - 8 stamps & 1 souvenir sheet (2012/06/29) = 16 stamps
Signs of the Zodiac: Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio - 4 stamps & 1 souvenir sheet (2012/07/23) = 8 stamps
100th Grey Cup® Game -9 stamps & 1 souvenir sheet (2012/08/16) = 18 stamps

Total = 1 + 16 + 8 + 18 = 43

Hey, guys, I am really confused right now, as a newcomer to Canada.

What is the price for mail a letter under 30 grams? Why there are three different prices on Canadapost website? How come the prices are different?
http://www.canadapost.ca/cpo/mc/persona ... prices.jsf

Btw, what does permanent stamp mean?
Each price is according to the destination. So there's Canada, USA, and International.

More info on P stamps.
