Does Costco Sell Stamps

By David Krug 3 minute read

A membership fee and the sale of merchandise in bulk allow Costco to keep costs low on hundreds of items. So, can you get stamps at a discount from Costco? I’ve done some research and found this out.

In 2022, will Costco continue to sell stamps?

As of 2022, stamps will be available at Costco. Many Costco warehouses sell First-Class Forever stamp bundles of 100 for a lower price than the regulated US Postal Service rates.

The cost of a 100-pack is $54.75, which is 25 cents less expensive than a bundle of USPS stamps. Costco.com does not permit the purchasing of stamps. Keep reading to find out more about the costs, locations, and designs, among other things.

How Much Do Costco Stamps Cost?

The United States Postal Service (USPS) sells First-Class Forever stamps in 100-stamp bundles at Costco. There are five booklets in each bundle with a total of 240 stamps (of the US flag).

There is no set pricing for these packages, however, because they are not available for purchase online. In addition, the cost of postal stamps in the United States is lower than this. In fact, Costco is one of the few stores that sell stamps at a lower price than the USPS mandated rate.

How much money can you save by purchasing stamps at Costco?

You’ll save about $0.25 on each bundle of stamps at Costco thanks to the reduced pricing. This may not seem like much, but over time, it adds up to quite a bit.

As a bonus, Costco’s First-Class Forever stamps are available for purchase. So, if the price of stamps rises after you buy a bundle, you will save even more money for every stamp that you use.

In order to purchase stamps from Costco, a member is required. Your yearly fee will range from $60 to $120 depending on the personal membership level you choose.

So, you won’t be able to save money only by getting a discount on stamps. In order to get the greatest benefit from the cost-cutting benefits of Costco membership, you would need to buy frequently.

How To Purchase Stamps From Costco

In most Costco warehouses, stamps are available for purchase. “Find A Warehouse” on the Costco website will help you locate your nearest location. Visit the membership counter to find out if any items, including stamps, are now available.

It’s also possible to phone your local warehouse or contact Member Services to learn whether or not a Costco near you has stamps before you go in. Buying stamps at Costco? Find out whether they take passport photographs while you’re there.

In addition, if a Costco warehouse is too far away, you may buy US postal stamps at CVS, Target, Walgreens, and Walmart.

Bottom Line

Costco does offer stamps from the United States Postal Service at a discount. There are few shops that can provide stamps for less than the USPS mandated pricing at this point in time.

To acquire First-Class Forever Stamps from Costco, you must purchase a bundle of 100 at the store. Costco warehouses and Member Services can both tell you if stamps are available at your local store.
