You save a quarter on almost fifty bucks? Really? Why not save 2 cents. That's about the same. After paying for a membership I expect better or just don't sell stamps it's not convenient to even go into your store or wait in line, so stamps can be delivered to my house for free if I order from PO. LOL

Hello @Superdog, you're right that you don't really save a whole lot buying postage stamps at Costco, but I do disagree that buying stamps from Costco is inconvenient. A lot of people end up going to Costco more frequently than going to the post office. Now I wouldn't go to Costco just to buy stamps, but if I'm already going there for my normal weekly shopping, then grabbing some stamps would make sense. Yes, you could order online and have it delivered, but I would assume that that would take a few days. What if you needed the stamps right away? For some people that wouldn't work. At least Costco is open on more days with longer hours of operation than most post offices. Although I don't see anything wrong with buying stamps online, at least Costco gives people another option to get postage stamps, so it all depends on people's personal preferences.
