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!
Yeah, this uncut press sheet seems like a better deal than what I posted in OP, since some of the stamps in the package are difficult to peel. The uncut press sheet, you just tear and lick or put some water using a sponge and you are good to go.
For those ordering, don't forget to use GCR for an additional 3.3% cash back. ;-)

So does this mean that the

Canada Post people will not refuse these stamps and say something like

these are from 2012 so you only get X value on these stamps not the regular priced currently...

I just purchased one of each
The 26.23
and 56.10
HST 10.31
total 89.64

Net stamps - 43 +90 = 133

Face Value really paid - 0.674 cents

Face Value now - 0.85X133 = $113.05

113.05-89.64 = 23.41

23.41/113.05 = In reality 21% savings not 28%

Just some analysis for others.

Wow I can't believe they still have this. I don't want to risk my letters getting reject htough.
The letters aren't going to get rejected and Canada Post won't refuse the stamps. They are "P" - Permanent Stamps - meaning, you can use them PERMANENTLY - doesn't matter what it costs to mail a letter now versus when you bought them.
When your mind says give up, hope whispers "one more try"
Never say never

Correct me if I'm wrong but don't they charge HST, or at least GST, on even single stamps as well? So your $0.85 cent stamp will actually be $0.96.

By my math the face value now should be:

0.96 (0.85x1.13) x 133 = $127.68 (if only GST then 0.89x133 = $118.37)

127.68 - 89.64 = $38.04

38.04/127.68 = 29.79%.

The wording for the whole tax thing is confusing at best but I BELIEVE it stats if you send from Ontario, and the cost is less than $5, you get charged the HST. If the rate is more than $5, and you're mailing from Ontario, you get charged just the GST.

How long does it take to ship? Will I get them before Christmas cutoff?
If you mean cutoff for cards within Canada, then yes. You should get your order within 2 weeks as Canada Post is rather slow processing the order. After they ship it, it gets to you in 3-4 business days. The cutoff for cards in Canada is December 17, so you should be fine.

Hello everyone, I ordered it on Nov. 21th. And I received a shipping confirmation on Nov. 24th. But I haven't received it yet. Is this normal?
Thank you.
