  • Nope. Because even with people using email and such, we'll always need to find a way to mail off gifts and packages. The stamp isn't used for just letters anymore.

  • No, because you can't send packages or items through the email or facebook or whatever. Some things still need to be delivered to your house.

  • My postal workers around here are such a pain the butt, that I am getting ready to boycott the USPS. I could send things through internet or UPS or Fedex.
    The USPS is my problem, not snail mail in general.

  • idk, have u heard they are taking away denomination stamps (ex: 1 cent, 35 cent, ect) they are now doing just "forever"stamps that dont change price. bc so few ppl buy stamps often that when the stamp prices change ppl are having trouble matching the one cent stamps w/ other higher denomination stamps to get the right price.

  • I pay all my bills online, it is so much easier. Stamps are darned expensive and I rarely buy them. I too have had problems with the usps.

  • I don't think so. There are still elderly who prefer to use letters and snail mail. There will still be people who will ship items by USPS, FedEx, or UPS.

  • Hehe! I still send out letters... We usually do Christmas cards and Valentines too. And I'm pretty certain I'm not considered 'elderly.'

    Anyway I don't really think it will ever go away either. Though I do think that it might be privatized some day.
