Swiss Post to give away two free stamps to every household

Communication dated 22.05.2017

Between 29 May and 2 June 2017, Swiss Post will deliver two free stamps worth CHF 1 each to every household in Switzerland. This campaign is part of an agreement drawn up with the price regulator.

Next week, Swiss Post will deliver two stamps worth CHF 1 each to Switzerland’s approximately four million households in the form of the online “WebStamp”. The stamps are incorporated on the front of an A5 leaflet.

The distribution of the stamps was agreed with the price regulator in Summer 2016 within the scope of a consensual arrangement comprising price savings and streamlining for both private and business customers. The agreement is being implemented in stages, and began in early 2017. As a result of the agreement, the prices for domestic A and B Mail letters, which were last increased in 2004, and for domestic parcels, also remained unchanged. Additional customer benefits include a price reduction for the SMS postage stamp from CHF 1.20 to CHF 1, effective since 1 January 2017.
