Stamp Machines Being Phased Out At Post Offices

Forget about digging around the house for stamp money, soon you won't need it.

The post office is getting rid of stamp vending machines. They say the machines are becoming obsolete.

They plan to have them all phased out within two years. Lexington's are slated for removal this August.

You will still be able to buy stamps and mail packages at the automated postal center, but it only takes plastic.

    @Don Location London. Exactly! By removing the machines they dont need a mechanic or a man to refill stamps and collect money. Not to mention the other jobs the machines provided. SO say minimum 2 people lost their jobs for every few countys. That means they USPS gets to keep more money. Also with the long lines you hate.... You are on the internet! Try paying your bills and printing your postage online. Just paying your bills online alone will save you about $2 a month. Also a small postal scale only costs about $10 so why not buy one and avoid waiting in lines all day? They want you to use the new method so why fight it when its obsolete?

    The lines at the post office are already too long as it is.

    Typical postal policy.Do eveything "bass ackwards".All this will do is add to the lines at the service counter.Do the people responsible for this not understand that most people don't want to pay for stamps with plastic.This is another good reason to pay bills and send letters on line and avoid the post office altogether.
