The Post Office is bringing back the saving stamp. From today, anyone with a fiver to spare can buy a stamp to put towards their bills at any Post Office.

The Post Office is bringing back the saving stamp. From today, anyone with a fiver to spare can buy a stamp to put towards their bills at any Post Office.

The scheme is intended to appeal to "jam jar" savers who want to put money aside but do not have a bank account - 5 million people, the Post Office says. The stamps - last sold in the mid-Seventies - can be used for any utility bill, any Post Office service, and also used for groceries in most corner shops with a Post Office counter.

The stamps will feature the Post Office logo rather than the head of a member of the royal family, as in previous years, and will be promoted in modern style.
