Has anyone else bought a load of stamps to stock up before the price increase at the end of the month? I admit that I have!! I bought 100 2nd class stamps and 24 1st class stamps which I reckon will last me at least two years as I tend mainly to use stamps at Christmas and the odd birthday. The Post Office are now restricting the number of stamps that retailers can buy before the price hike - saying that it will stop unscrupulous retailers buying cheap and selling at the higher price next month. But they also want to stop the general public from bulk buying but surely they should have thought of that before they have a months notice of the price increase!!
