You Want Marilyn Monroe, Or Elvis Stamps?
You can buy your stamps and mail your Christmas packages at many post offices this year and pay for the service with your American Express, or Discover card, or your bank card.
Already, most post offices in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, California; Baltimore, Maryland; and Providence, Rhode Island will accept credit cards, and Denver, Dallas, Orlando, Atlantic City, and Washington, DC can accommodate credit or debit cards.
The Postal Service says it is installing about 300 terminals a day. By 1997, all 33,000 post offices should be equipped with 50,000 card accepting terminals.
