Ummmm --- NO there is no TAX (at least not a separate tax above the listed price)
There was tax for me. $26.23 + $3.41 HST charged. Someone else below mentioned it as well. I've always been charged tax when buying stamps so it is still an excellent deal as you pay tax on stamps at regular price any way.

Anyone need 90 P stamps? Yours at over 30% discount:

http://www.canadapost.ca/shop/p-403781149.jsf

These stamps were released when the "face value" of a P stamp was 59 cents. And they are selling them at 18 sheets * 5 stamps each * 0.59 cents = $53.10 (plus tax, there is always tax). Current value of these would be 18 * 5 * 0.85 = $76.5.

These are the old fashioned, lickable stamps. And they are very pretty, too ;)

Use one to send a regular letter within Canada, or use 3 of them to send a Christmas card to your pen friend in Fiji. Or stick a whole lot of them to send a parcel to wherever you want.
*Edit to add - if you are sending something outside of Canada and the fee is $5 or more it would be tax exempt. If you want to save on the tax in those cases, you would be better of not putting several of these stamps on as you've already been taxed on them.

Repost.

But who uses Canada Post stamps these days anyway?
I needed a stamp to mail my Kellogg's "Cash for Gas" cereal box offer.

You still bother with mail-in ripoffs? Not me.
Oh comeon! I received all my MIRs for my most recent build this past summer.

$15 + $20 + $15 + $10 = $50 back. I'm just waiting for my evga rebate. I've been told its been approved, and based on experience with this mir processor, I should be receiving it this month.

Doesn't hurt to file them. You save $$ if they go through :)

Is it obvious how to cut these stamps? e.g. are the outlines clear? I would hate to cut it wrong and invalidate them since they are uncut.

Edit: read through the thread, maybe they are perforated, so nevermind my Q.

It's only crossed out in promotional images, not the actual stamps that you receive.

Thanks greenmoon!

My order just arrived yesterday. It came shipped rolled in a tube, it's a large sheet of uncut, but perforated permanent stamps. Very good deal for anyone who needs lots of stamps or even someone who wants to frame this sheet of stamps as art!

Correct me if i'm wrong, but I think it's always cheaper to ship with these stamps.

I.e. postage to ship a parcel costs $8.5, therefore requires 10 stamps. Total cost to ship this parcel with these stamps even though you paid taxes on them is $6.2

So the stamps can be used without any issue?

The denomination is crossed out in the sample image to prevent people from printing out the picture and using them as stamps. The actual stamps will not have the mark.
