In our business, we purchase stamp deals at about 70% of the face value. We mail out about $75/day in packages, and use these as discount postege.

It certainly was the thing to do, starting back after WWII. I remember, as a teenaged stamp collector, going to the post office in around 1959 and purchasing a sheet of 3 cent stamps($1.50 the sheet) and preserving it for my future. Today I'd use it for postage.
