Investing in Stamps
Have you ever thought about making an investment in stamps? If it doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, let me explain first. I’m not talking about someone that collects stamps. It has nothing to do with getting a rare stamp, and holding on to it, until the value increases for it. It’s actually an opportunity to buy a stamp, that will always be good, no matter what the price of stamps are.
Now today is the start of a postal increase. The 39 cent stamp is not good anymore, unless you add 2 cents to it. First class postage stamps are now 41 cents each. It’s still a pretty good deal. When you can take a letter to your mailbox, and have that letter go across the country to someone, and it only costs 41 cents to do so. It is still one of the best bargains in the world if you ask me.
Now what if you could stop the postal increases? It’s true, you could actually never have to pay for another postal increase. The U.S. Post Office will now be selling Forver Stamps. These stamps will be good forever. They won’t have any value posted on them, like 41 cents. You will be able to use these stamps, regardless of what the price of stamps get increased to.
So here’s where the investment part comes in. Since you don’t have to worry about no future postal increases. It makes the Forever Stamp hold value instantly. If you was to take a big sum of money, and purchased these Forever Stamps, it could make you some money. Not only could you use the stamps yourself, and save money on the future increases. You could also sell the stamps to other people. Especially businesses that might have to mail a lot of first class mail daily. A business might be able to save hundreds of dollars, just by locking in a postal rate. So it’s something to consider, and I’m sure I’m not the person that thought of this. Someone that has a lot of extra money, might be making huge purchases of these Forever Stamps.Click here for reuse options!
