Saving Money on Postage??

May 19, 2008

For months I had been trying to figure out a way to save some money on postage. I purchase the postage for birthday cards for our church’s missionaries, and I made it my goal to save on postage. My idea? Roll it into my Extra Care Bucks at CVS. Well, read that fine print and you’ll see that postage isn’t one of the things you can you your “just like cash” bucks on. It may work, but I haven’t tried it after reading that.

So I just assumed that saving money on postage was just something that couldn’t be done, apart from buying as many forever stamps as possible. Until I read that you can buy postage stamps on eBay! Need to see for yourself? Check out Tammy’s post here.

I haven’t tried this personally, but hope to do so soon!

And, if you’re wondering about the new postage rates, you can see them here.

    I had never thought of doing this, but what a good idea.
    I do wonder why someone would sell unused postage stamps on Ebay, but for whatever their reasoning, if it’ll allow me to send greeting cards to friends and family, I’ll just simply be grateful.
    Thanks for sharing this.

    Hello,
    I caught your ad and wanted to let you know that I am trying to help as many christians as I can to save money on postage stamps. I bought a liquidated card business and they had thousands of stamps in the inventory. I can send an invoice, and basically I am offering between 5-12% discount on my stamps (depending on what type). Please email me at Don29607@gmail.com and ask for an invoice. It comes as an Excel ss that you can open, order, and I will mail them back to you with the stamps (delivered right to your door for only $1.00 shipping). It’s not much, but I am reliable with hundreds of feedback on ebay (under Datamaster98). Feel free to try just a few first to see that they will work for you; I guarantee the PO will take them or I will refund your money!! Thanks, Don
