Uk news Millions of stamps to be phased out in six months - how to get them exchanged PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - People have been asked to check their homes as they could be charged for using old stamps after the deadline.
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Royal Mail stamps that feature the Queen's head are to be phased out by the end of January 2023. The so-called "definitive" stamps will lead to an extra charge if you try to use them after the deadline. Moving forward, the only stamps with the Queen's profile will be the ones that feature barcodes, as well as non-barcoded Christmas or special collection stamps. People are being urged to use them up or to use the Royal Mail’s "Swap Out" scheme. Both first and second class stamps will become defunct after the deadline, so it's important to check your home to make sure you're not losing out on money. Nick Landon, Royal Mail chief commercial officer, said: "Please check your kitchen drawers, wallets and purses for older non-barcoded stamps and make sure you use them up by January 31, 2023."

If you have collected the form or had it sent to you, it will come with a freepost envelope for you to send the form off with the stamps for free. For those who have printed the form themselves, you’ll need to send the envelope to "Freepost Swap Out" - no other address details are needed and it’ll be free of charge. Royal Mail advises those sending bulk forms to send via special delivery. The additional cost of doing this will be refunded by Royal Mail in the form of barcoded stamps worth the same amount. The exchange should take place within seven working days. If you have not received the new barcoded stamps within two weeks, you are advised to call customer services on the above number.
