Do you remember Green Stamps?
It was interesting to find out that trading stamps became popular in the US as far back as 1896! Retailers would buy stamps from Sperry & Hutchinson and then give them to customers, who in turn would trade them back to S&H for various items.
The Green Stamps which we were familiar with are very similar. They were from the Green Shield Trading Stamp Co. which was established in 1958. It was popular in the 60s and 70s, but rising cost of inflation in the 70s caused the value of the stamps to go down. The Green Stamp sales were eventually suspended in 1983.
I remember my mother having a few of those books but we kids never decided what to get. So we didn’t have to go thru the whole Brady Bunch house of cards episode. (lol) I think my mother turned them in for new pots and pans if I recall correctly.
Do you get anything cool with Green Stamps?
