I miss being able to buy stamps at ATMs (I got all of my stamps that way), but Greenpoint no longer does that.  I wonder why other banks haven't tried it - I used their ATM all the time when they had stamps.

I always order my stamps online at www.usps.com - they always have every design in stock, and they only charge a dollar for shipping - well worth it not to have to wait in line at the Post Office. I usually get them within a day or two as well.

I'm not the biggest fan of our Post Office because of the lines, but I've never had a real problem with them (lost packages, etc.) Thankfully I have a non-traditional schedule, so I can go at off times (which are still kind of crowded, but better).
What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

That's great about CVS!  I thought they charged a fee, though.

I don't know. It's likely since they'll want tomake some money on it. The only time I bought stamps from someone besides a Post Offce was at that stationery store on the same block. It did cost me a little bit more. I want to say $4 for a book of 10 37-cent stamps,  but I really dont remember.

Has anyone ever had problems with mail not being forwarded after submitting a change of address form?  Apparently my old neighbor has received a bunch of mail addressed to me at my old place, and he brilliantly decided to trash it all.  So, I have no idea if my mail was of a sensitive nature or not (I sure hope not). 

I have not received any mail for a few days now and I'm a little worried.  I did funnel that worry into a call to the USPS customer service center and a very nice woman helped me out and submitted a job to the investigative process to figure out what's going on with my mail.  I hope to hear what's up in a couple of days.  Of course, first I was directed by the robot phone tree to the local PO number (718-274-7396, in case you need it), and the postal worker at Woolsey Station was as surly and unpleasant as usual.  Ugh.

In any case, I hope they can figure out the problem.

Thanks for nothing! ;)  I didn't know that Post Office store existed!  I'd never seen the Alaskan Snowflake watches.  Now I want both, the blue AND the white! :)

3. Package deliveries. Everywhere else in the country you get 3 notices that a package delivery was attempted. Here you get one, they don't try and "redeliver" (despite the fact it says they will redeliver on the slip they leave at the door), and the slip sometimes comes a day or two after the delivery attempt.

I actually think they don't even try to deliver in the first place.  I think they just put the notice in the box.  Several times we have been home all day, only to discover that a notice is waiting in our mailbox.

i moved recently and I have not received one single piece of forwarded mail.  I checked with my old roommate and same deal...nada.

we both got the confirmations of the forward request...still zero pieces forwarded. 

good luck...please let me know what happens if anything.
