Important Rules

This is a discussion list. You may offer discount postage for sale or trade or offer insights that will help the discount postage community specifically and with it, the philatelic community generally. You may express your interest in buying discount postage. You may post links to auction website listings featuring discount postage provided that the listing conforms to the rules of this email list. The operator of the list is not responsible for any offers by other parties nor for the results of any transactions.

Discount postage where U.S. postage is implied, must contain only valid, unrestricted postage stamps. It would be dishonest to include any postage due, special handling, special delivery or Certified Mail stamps, now that you know that these are declared invalid under Domestic Mail Manual 604.1.3, and if precanceled stamps are included, the offer must clearly say so. That includes the precanceled Christmas stamps. Use those up yourself. Obviously do not include United Nations postage stamps. Offering postally used “skipped” stamps that missed the canceling machine is forbidden. Save up the entire envelopes with any skipped stamps you get, and once a year send them in a package to:

WASHINGTON DC 20260-0010
asking them to cancel the stamps and return the envelopes to you. If everybody would do this, the office staff will get tired and the boss will initiate a crackdown on skipped stamps.
