According to a friend of mine Canada Post is still accepting 63 cent stamps on envelopes until the end of the month (more properly, the employees are, as part of their demonstration of dissatisfaction with recent changes announced by the post office), so save those 'P' stamps and use up your old '63s'.

You will likely be charged multiple times.
I wanted one pack - ended up getting six duplicate orders charged and delivered.

I did a little reading a few days ago and it seems to be punishable by law. Not entirely sure though as my search landed on Q&A type of blogs/webpages and they're not likely definitive guides.

Would you mind to suggest a better way to peel those stickers? Sometimes they are so easy to peel, but the odd time is so hard!
I rip the backs off. Too hard to peel, so I just try to make a small rip and go from there.


DON"T USE TAPE. Glue is fine, but tape is a no go.

I ordered these on Monday and they finally sent me the notification on Friday that they had been charged and were going to ship. These will be all the stamps I need for some time.

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.

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!

clear tape over stamps i believe voids the stamp at the post office. the stamper machine cant ink the stamp properly i guess.
