Many of us lead busy, chaotic lifestyles that make it difficult to get to your local USPS office during the week, and it’s the last place you want to go on the weekend. So where else can you buy stamps when you’re on the go?
You’ll be happy to know that Walmart sells stamps. To learn more about the types of stamps you can buy from this popular chain store, then keep reading this article!
How Much Is It To Purchase Stamps At Walmart?
Walmart sells stamps for the same price as the United States Post Office. A book of 20 First Class Forever stamps currently costs $11.60.
The great thing about buying stamps from Walmart is that the store is open most days, including weekends, from 7 am to 11 pm. These hours are slightly better than post office hours which are usually 9 pm to 5 pm.
Which Aisle Are Stamps Located?
You can get stamps either at the money service counter or at the customer service desk at Walmart stores. Both counters usually open and close with the rest of the store, however, they may close earlier in quieter areas. If you’re planning to visit your local Walmart store in the evening, it may be best to call the store ahead of time to see if the counter is open.
What Is The Maximum Amount Of Stamps I Can Buy?
Stamps are available to buy individually or in booklets of 20, so you can buy as many as you want (unless you have a ridiculously large order).
Can I Purchase Stamps At Walmart Online?
Yes, you can buy even more stamps online including booklets of 100 and more. So, if you need stamps in bulk, we recommend ordering them online through Walmart.
If using the online service, you may be charged a shipping fee. However, you can opt for the in-store collection to save money. This is sometimes the better option, especially if you need a large number of stamps quickly because your local Walmart may not have them in stock.
Can I Post Letters And Packages In Walmart?
You can post letters and packages at Walmart stores that have access to FedEx services. However, this is not available in all stores, so you may want to call ahead of your visit, or speak to a member of the team upon arrival.
It’s worth noting that while you may not be able to post your items to Walmart, you can certainly purchase packaging materials including:
- Bubble Wrap
- Padded bags
Purchasing these products from Walmart is often a quarter of the price as they are at your local USPS. So take note!
Do Walmart Stamps Have An Expiration Date?
Absolutely not. It’s all in the name (Forever stamps). Therefore, you will never have to worry about your stamps being past their expiration date.
Do Walmart Stamps Have Different Designs?
Generally, stamps have different designs depending on the time of the year i.e. Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving etc.
This does not mean that you have to buy stamps with a particular design. You can just stick to the traditional red flag design that we all know and love!
Paying For Stamps In Walmart
You can pay for stamps using the following payment methods:
- Debit card
- Credit card
This also applies to online purchases, but you can also pay with Amex Express Checkout and PayPal. Currently, customers are unable to pay for stamps using popular contactless payment methods such as Google Pay, Apple Pay, and Samsung Pay. Although this may change in the near future.
Can I Return Stamps At Walmart?
Yes, you can return anything as long as it is unused, in the original packaging, and you have the original receipt. Therefore, if you have used a few stamps from the booklet, you will not be able to return them to the store.
Other Stores That Sell Stamps
You’ll be happy to know that you can purchase stamps at other popular grocery stores, including CVS, Target, and Walgreens. However, the same cannot be said for their online services, so you may want to check it out.
Stamp prices are often the same at each shop which is always good to know!
The Final Say
Walmart sells First Class US Forever stamps in booklets of 20 for $11.60. While all Walmart stores sell stamps, it is likely that the area in which they are sold (money service checkout or customer service desk), depends on when you make your purchase. choose If so, you can always purchase stamps by visiting Walmart’s website.
