CVS is a popular pharmacy chain, but does CVS sell stamps? It’s usually not the first place you think of when you need to buy stamps. However, CVS does sell stamps, and you can usually find them near the checkout counter.
Many people are not aware that CVS sells stamps and, at times, it can be more convenient to buy stamps from CVS rather than going to the post office. So if you’re in a pinch and need to buy stamps, CVS is a good option. And who knows, maybe you’ll even find a CVS brand stamp! (We can dream.)
What types of stamps does CVS sell?
We hate to break this to you but if you were looking to buy anything other than first-class postage stamps from CVS, you’d be up for disappointment.
CVS only sells first-class forever stamps and on top of that, they will only sell booklets consisting of 20 stamps. If you just need a single stamp, or just a few, buying from CVS might not be a good idea.
Likewise, if you need anything other than first-class stamps, such as limited edition stamps, then you shouldn’t bother looking into CVS at all. As mentioned above, they only sell basic, first class postage stamps in the form of stamp booklets.
What are the prices for each type of stamp at CVS?
First off, there aren’t any “types” of stamps sold at CVS other than the basic forever stamps. As for the price, it’s going to be exactly the same as your local post office. You won’t be paying a penny more or less when purchasing stamps from CVS.
At the time of writing, a first-class postage stamp costs $0.60 so the 20-stamp booklet amounts to $12. You will find this same price whether you buy from CVS or the post office.
Why would you need stamps at CVS specifically?
Based on what you read so far, it may seem like there’s n point in buying stamps from CVS. However, that’s not necessarily the case. There are some scenarios when purchasing postage stamps at CVS may be a better option.
If you happen to be someone who frequently sends out mail, then buying the CVS stamps booklet instead of one or two stamps may actually be a good idea. While you’re shopping at the CVS store, why not grab that stamps booklet as well?
If a business sends out mail frequently and happens to be located close to a CVS store, it’d make sense for them as well to purchase stamps from CVS.
How to Buy Stamps from CVS?
To purchase stamps from CVS, simply head to the checkout counter and ask the cashier for help. They will be more than happy to direct you to where the stamps are located in the store. Once you’ve found the stamps, take a look at the price displayed on them. This should be the same price as what you would pay at your local post office. If it’s not, then you should let the cashier know so they can fix the price. Once you’ve confirmed that the price is correct, grab however many stamps you need and pay for them at the counter. It’s as simple as that!
Does CVS Sell Stamps Online?
Unfortunately, CVS does not sell stamps online because it’s not a major-selling product for them. In fact, most people don’t even know that CVS does sell postage stamps. To buy stamps from CVS, you’ll need to visit your local CVS store. Luckily, CVS has thousands of stores throughout the United States so it’s highly likely you’ll find one nearby.
If not, you can always visit other stores or buy them from your local post office.
Can You Return Stamps to CVS?
Yes, you can return the stamps book to CVS as long as it is unused and unopened. According to CVS’s return policy, as long as the item is unused and unopened and you have the purchase receipt and your valid photo identification, you can return the item within 60 days to any CVS store.
If you don’t have the purchase receipt, they may offer to exchange it with the same time or offer store credit of the corresponding amount.
What services does CVS offer in terms of mailing and shipping?
It should be clear by now that CVS doesn’t really have much to offer in terms of mailing and shipping services/items. Many people still ask questions about these so I’m going to answer some specific ones.
Does CVS Have Mail Boxes Nearby?
Not necessarily. It would depend entirely upon the location of the CVS store. There are, of course, no mailboxes inside a CVS store, and a mailbox may be located very close or too far from your local CVS store.
Can You Post Mail from CVS?
No, you can not post your mail from CVS. You’ll need to visit your local post office for that.
Can CVS Weigh Your Letter?
As per my knowledge, CVS does not offer any such facility. But even if they did, I’d still recommend you visit your local post for that because they’ll be able to precisely measure your letter/parcel and tell you exactly which ones, and how many stamps you need.
