WASHINGTON — Sales have topped $1 million in the U.S. Postal Service's new stamps-by-phone program, which is being operated experimentally in nine cities, officials announced Wednesday.
In the program, which will likely be expanded to the rest of the country, customers call in orders for first-class and express mail stamps and charge the cost to major credit cards. There is a minimum order of $11, plus a $2 service fee.
Residents of Dallas and the Hampton Roads area of Virginia call a local phone number for the stamps, and people in Miami, Baltimore, New York, Minneapolis, Boston, San Diego and Sacramento use a national toll-free number.
