What are these buggers (Stamps from 711)

Recommended Posts

You can save them up and buy cheap crap from their catalogue with them.

 

Just file them away in the garbage.

Seven has a catalogue? 

 

 

You'll forgive me, I don't get out much.

It's more of a magazine type thing.

I sometimes just give them as change at next purchase.

I can't remember having got one of the 3 Baht stamps (on the lower left in the pic).

In the shops there are usually boards where you can stick them as donation (to temples?).

So, basically it's garbage. Thanks!

No, as written I used them as change at 7/11.

There is just one mystery: they expire after some time until a next "campaign" starts.

Actually got some very attractive 3D type stamps a couple weeks ago - guess they have a forgery issue they trying to make harder.

If you're old enough to remember 'green shield stamps', similar thing. 

Never heard of those and not young - do remember S&H Green Stamps "a line of trading stamps popular in the United States from the 1930s until the late 1980s."

 

Edit:  OK found them UK item for a few years ago.  "Green Shield Stamps was a British sales promotion scheme that rewarded shoppers with stamps that could be used to buy gifts from a catalogue or from any ...

they have the cash value printed on them

And that they print "3" as Thai numeral is to baffle foreigners :biggrin:

That I can not remember having seen these might be due to the little amounts that I shop at 7/11 (hardly more than 200 Baht).

As khunbenq has said, they have the cash value printed on them, so you can spend them....

Oh yeah, I think I've seen those as well.

 

They seem to change them every now and again, the woman I live with ordered some crap from the catalogue using these before. I think some can only be used to order the cheap rubbish they sell, others like cash for a limited time, something like that.

They used them in the UK, I remember them from the 70's.
