What I find unbelievable is how difficult it is to find the new prices Where are the leaflets?? I am a Royal Mail online customer why haven't they emailed their customers to give the new prices?

Having said that it was clear that postage was going to have to go up as so much of what you order now comes by other carriers.

If you have the funds, you can buy stamps which state "second class" or "first class" rather than a price on them and still use them after 30 April. So get a small hoard together which could take you through Christmas cards and birthday cards at least.

All 1st and 2nd class stamps are like that. RM haven't produced stamps bearing the current 1st and 2nd class 'value - actually visible - for yonks.

I thought that. I remember it being brought in so that people didn't end up with defunct stamps after a rise.

I think that's just a fortunate spin-off for the consumer. It saves RM a lot of faff - recalling, reprinting, re-issuing etc.

you can only use them on letters you can't use one on a packet and top up with ordinary stamps

I would have thought so too... I've stuck 4 or 5 on to make up the value before now

you can also use any unused gb stamp with any value so long as its in decimal currency. yes even ones with a halfpenny in the value. Raid your childhood stamp collections from the 70's,
altho pretty, these modern stamps are worth less than face value in a collectors' market- you might as well use them as postage.

This is a novel idea, only covers a small area but good non the less.
