Saving stamps are seeing a revival at Co-operative food stores
as savvy shoppers find new ways to spread the cost of Christmas.
This year, The Co-operative is expecting its canny customers to cash in £2.5m worth
of saving stamps, more
than 50% more than the £1.7million spent on saving stamps for the whole of 2010.
The Co-operative’s saving stamps scheme enables shoppers to buy £1 stamps over the
year, and then cash them in for the Christmas shop.
Throughout December, The Co-operative will pay out £50 for every £48 saved, giving
an extra £2 for free.
Saving a little each week helps make Christmas more affordable and takes the worry
out of financing the festive period. Customers can purchase stamps each time they
go into a food store and then have more money at Christmas to treat themselves and
The saving stamps can be used at The Co-operative food stores to pay for the
Christmas shop on items such as a turkey and all the trimmings, a bottle of bubbly
or washing up liquid for the cleaning up afterwards*.
Sean Toal, Acting Chief Executive, The Co-operative Food, said: “We’re helping
families to make their Christmas more affordable by spreading the cost over the
year. Our savings stamp scheme provides great value for our customers and enables
them to enjoy Christmas yet still keep a grip on the purse strings.”
