I remember when i was a child my dad used to get those stamps every time he filled his van up with petrol (gas). They stopped them years ago though.

I don't think the ones that you have are worth something, but if you'd like to start a new green stamp collection you can sign in there.

During the '70s, one could exchange a full book of Gold Bond Stamps, for $3.50 CASH. My grandfather had several full books and a bunch, to be stuck in the books. As I was young and broke, he gave them to me and I got enough money to buy a tank of gas (gas was about .50 per gallon then).

I also remember "Double Stamp Wednesdays", at Lucky Supermarkets.

I understand that S&H will still honor books of stamps. They use a card now, if you can find a store that gives them away. There aren't any in New England, but I saw them down in Tennessee a few years ago.

The grocery store here in Utah use to give something like that out. You collected stamps then when you had a page you got discounts of things like dishes and stuff.

Not really the same at least I don't think they were.

What did you get for collecting those stamps?

Kitchen stuff, home decorations, bed and bath stuff, toys, jewelry, just all kinds of goodies.

I used to save the S & H stamps. We also had yellow Top Value stamps here in Maryland. The only thing I can remember getting for them were dolls that I gave to the Salvation Army at Christmas time.

I got my very first catcher's mitt with green stamps Believe it or not, the Houchen's grocery stores in Bowling Green, and the Piggly Wiggly in Franklin, Kentucky still give out stamps for purchases. Well they don't have actually stamps, they swipe your savers card or something....anyway they're online now. The little place that used to be the S&H Store (where you could actually go pick out stuff) is a vacuum cleaner shop now that specializes in used Orec's.

I guess I'm old! Not only do I remember collecting them, I remember going up to the greenstamp store to redeem for "stuff". My mom didn't want to bother with them so she'd give me the stamps to put in the books. The first thing I bought with them (when I was about 10) was a Christmas present for my sister who had just gotten married - a very tacky ceramic bull that sat on her coffee table for years. I'm sure she hated it but respected her little sissy enough to not throw it out.

I'm going to go polish up my cane now.......
