Actually, that means 25% off.
I mean greatcanadianrebates.ca it's offering 4.5 % off in rebates, in addition to 31% off for this offer, well at least for my purchase of 32.xx each time.

Just did this 4x lol.

I found one of the old collector's packs that is all permanent stamps at the old price of $0.63/stamp!

Quarterly collector’s packs: April-June 2013

If you enlarge the front picture, it looks like they are all P stamps. Buy 2 packs for free shipping and with the COFFEE code, this is hot.

This beats the Black Friday deal I took advantage of, which was spend $50 and get a $10 esso gift card. My item I was buying was $49.95 so I bought a prepaid stamped envelope as a filler since I'll need that at some point anyways

well, this is better than nothing. Might as well treat this as a discount, because stamps NEVER go on "sale"

(except for that one time they were clearing out old "P" stamps worth 63cents, but I'm sure that will never happen again!)
Rexall/SDM sometimes have 10 packs of stamps for 5-10% off. Not a great amount but still covers some taxes.

Thanks OP.

There is some discount to be had if you are interested in purchasing some mint's coins. 20-for-20, or 25-for-25 are over-priced by Canada Post, so you might only able to save $5.
If you can find some other items from the Mint.ca that are available at the same price then you can save $10 (albeit in coffee beans ;) ). Just got the Chinese Year of the Monkey for $39.88, so it's now 25% off.

Thanks! Stockpiling P stamps. I still have a roll of them during the hoard before the large price jump. Used a fair number of those for MIRs lately, though. :D What I actually need are low denomination stamps but the pickings are few online (only 2c/22c). But at the rate price jumps are going I'll probably just have to slap a P with the old international stamps soon when sending out-of-country.

Thanks a good find, but some pictures of all the stamps are not on the front image as stated on back, so I think I'll call in Monday to make sure they are all P stamps as last year I got some .59 stamps which were not P stamps, however most were P stamps, just one or 2 that were .59 cents. Due to RFD effect I think all the .59 P stamps are sold out last year. With this .63 P stamps, the front does look like all P stamps though. Souvenir sheets are basically ones you can still use as stamps but you have to cut them up yourself, also there are multiple stamps on 1 souvenir sheets hence you see a dollar amount bigger than .63. I got this deal or collector's packs last year so I've seen what they look like.

The souvenir sheets are sheets of stamps you have to cut out or something like that. There are some RFD threads talking about this very thing. I was curious, too, and searched. So if you zoom in on the back of the pack you get the value of the sheets, which I guess are P stamps.

EDIT: Oh dear, my 666th post. I don't know if this is a bad omen....especially considering this is a post about CP .... and I have something very fragile and expensive being sent to me via CP this week. :cry:
