I'll take your word for it. It sounds familiar. Darn ole' British parliament imposing taxes on stamps. It just ain't right I tell you!

Tea, anyone?

generation gap alert. Green stamps?


Hah, that's more like TWO generation gaps! Laughing

Green stamps and similar programs were the equivalent then of credit card points / airline miles now. They showed you had shopped at [fill in store/chain/other stamp member]. You got sheets of them, torn off at the number of bucks you had spent. Then the kids (in our family) got assigned to paste them into the rewards booklet, which after you filled it up, then took it to the rewards warehouse and shop for goods. It was a very pervasive deal, many many retailers did it. Without looking it up I'd guess it fizzled out in the late 1960's/early '70's.
