Everyone knows the line at the post office is never short. And maybe you only need to purchase stamps, and you think it may take forever!
So with over 11,300 locations in 27 different countries, you may wonder if Walmart sells stamps. Here is what I discovered.
Does Walmart Sell Stamps?
Walmart does sell Forever and First Class US postage stamps at all of their store locations. These stamps can be purchased individually or in packs of 20 and 100 and range from $0.55 to $91 in price. Stamps can be purchased within Walmarts normal trading hours (7 am – 11 pm) and on holidays and weekends.

How Much Do Stamps Cost At Walmart?
First Class or Forever stamps are currently around $0.55 each, regardless of the design you choose at Walmart Money Services counters.
Additionally, if you opt to buy a book of 20 stamps, this will set you back $11, which is the same price that you will find at USPS.
What Stamp Designs Does Walmart Have?
The variety of stamps available at the Money Services counter will vary by the season.
Basic designs, such as the US flag, are available year-round, while seasonal designs vary widely based on time of year and Walmart location.
Where In Walmart Can I Buy Stamps?
Stamps are available for purchase at the Money Services counter in most Walmart stores as well as available online.
If your local Walmart doesn’t have a Money Services counter, the customer service counter can also assist with postage stamp purchases.
Generally, these counters are open for similar hours as the store (7 am – 11 pm and sometimes 24/7). However, in some locations, the hours of these counters may differ.
If you are looking to buy postage stamps late at night, it’s probably best you give your local Walmart a call before heading over.
How Many Stamps Do I Have To Buy At A Time?
At the Money Service or customer service desk in a Walmart store, the stamps are generally sold in booklets that contain 20 stamps.
If you would like to purchase a larger number of stamps, you can purchase multiple booklets, or visit Walmart’s website. On their website, they can order booklets, rolls, and stamps containing 100 stamps or more.
Do Walmart Stamps Expire?
As their name indicates, Forever stamps will be usable “forever,” so you can stock up without having to worry about your stamps losing value over time!
Can I Post Packages & Letters Within Walmart?
Once you have your stamps from Walmart, you may be wondering if you can send parcels or letters from Walmart. In short, yes, you can.
However, this service is exclusively operated by FedEx and is only available in a select amount of Walmart locations.
If you choose not to send items from Walmart (if your local store has a FedEx). You can pick up mailing supplies such as bubble wrap, envelopes, labels, padded bags, and boxes from Walmart and then send the item from USPS.
How Can I Pay For Stamps In Walmart?
When you shop in-store, you can pay for your stamps using cash or a debit or credit card. When you shop for stamps online, you can use all of the previously mentioned payment options as well as PayPal, Chase Pay, and Amex Express Checkout.
If you do decide to order your stamps online, you may have to pay shipping fees. If you don’t wish to pay for shipping, you may also be able to arrange to pick up your stamps in-store at your nearest neighborhood Walmart.
Just like Walmart, there is a wide range of other stores, such as Walgreens, CVS, and Target that sell US postage stamps. Unfortunately, neither Aldi nor Dollar General sells stamps at any of their stores.
Waiting in line at the post office for the sole purpose of buying postage stamps can be very inconvenient, so save yourself some time and head over to Walmart instead.
Not only does Walmart offer stamps for the same price as the post office, but they are also open a number of days that the post office is closed.
If the selection of stamps available at the Money Service counter doesn’t suit your needs, the number and design of stamps available on the Walmart website are endless, and you will most definitely find the exact type of stamps you desire.
