I'd like to know if ARC postage has a "use-by" date. I'd like to buy a bunch in advance. and just have them available to use as needed (planning on $2.38). Is there any deadline after purchase date that these need to be used by?

TIA

I believe you are asking about APC (Automated Postage Centers) postage? There is no use by date. I buy them in bunches all the time and used them as late as 4 months later without ever having a problem. The are great because they also get you out of the 13 oz rule so that you can drop your heavier books in a box instead of taking them to the counter :)

Oops - yes, I meant APC.


Thankyou for the prompt response. That was what I hoped to hear. I'll be near a PO with a APC tomorrow, so, I'll stock up. My beloved small local PO is getting very busy for Christmas -so, I'm planning on avoiding those queues.


PSĀ  Yes, I am aware of online printable postage - I just don't want to pay the extra cost for DC :-)
