How to Redeem S&H Green Stamps

S&H Green Stamps were most popular in the United States from the 1930s to 1970s. Customers received S&H stamps from cashiers at supermarkets, gas stations and other retail locations, collect them in books, and redeem them for merchandise from local Green Stamps stores or the S&H Idea Book catalog. Today, S&H offers "greenpoints" as rewards for purchases made on the Internet. However, if you still hold some Green Stamps, they do not expire and you can redeem them for greenpoints or cash.

  • You can give your S&H greenpoints to other people so you can combine your points to make a larger purchase. To transfer your points to another person you must have at least 3,000 greenpoints in your account.
  • You must pay sales tax must be paid on all greenpoints purchases. You can pay either with cash or with points.


  • In compliance with the S&H Green Stamp redemption policy, you may only redeem Green Stamps that you personally earned. So, buying old Green Stamps at garage sales or on eBay with the intention of redeeming them is not a good idea. Green Stamps offered for resale are sold for collecting purposes only; the redemption value is not transferable.
  • You can no longer redeem S&H Award Certificates. Unlike S&H Green Stamps, the Award Certificates were all printed with an expiration date and all are now expired.
