I remember back in the day when my grandaddy bought everything with S&H Green Stamps. I remember the fun of going to the store with him to pick out surprises for my grandmother and how magical it seemed that he could just hand the man behind the counter a book of stamps in exchange for a major appliance like a grill or a vacuum cleaner. S&H Green Stamps worked much like credit card rewards do today; when you purchased groceries or hardware goods you would collect stamps and then trade them in for durable goods. Sounds great! It had a novelty about it too; we were all so sad to see S&H Green Stamps go....and now, they are back!
You can now collect S&H Green Stamps on the web. They have been renamed S&H Greenpoints and you collect them electronically, but they are back. If you go to the website and sign up then you will collect S&H Greenpoints using your grocery card and online purchases; you can use your points to purchase durable goods from the S&H Greenpoints online store. I tell you these are very valuable; between gardening and S&H Green Stamps my grandparents didn't have a dime in living expenses! Should you find yourself with antique S&H Green Stamps you have one of two choices; you can redeem these stamps at the online store or you can keep them for their collectable value.
