Jersey Post Offers Discounted Stamps for the Holidays

The British Broadcasting Corporation website is reporting that the Jersey Post Christmas stamps are being sold at local post offices at a discount.

Andy Jehan, director of postal operations at Jersey Post is quoted as saying, " We recognise that Christmas can be an expensive time of year so we hope that our reduced price postage promotion will encourage customers to post early this year in order to benefit from the savings. By posting early, not only does it ensure items of Christmas post will arrive on time, but it enables us to keep our costs down and this means we can pass the savings on to our customers."

The stamps are from the Charles Dickens Christmas issue (shown above), cost 50p instead of 55p for the UK stamp, and 40p reduced from 45p for the local postage stamp.

According to the write-up, the discounted stamps can be used on letter-sized items until December 17.   After that they could be used if additional postage is paid.

Jersey, officially the Bailiwick of Jersey, is a British Crown Dependency just off the coast of Normandy, France.
