The 1969 Gold Strike Stamps Catalog

Share this:

Those old enough to remember the 1960s and 1970s will remember trading stamps. For those that don’t recall, upon purchase at the grocery store, gas station, or really an merchant, they’d give you a corresponding amount of stamps you could later trade in for stuff. They were sort-of the rewards card of the day – they weren’t necessarily linked to the store itself – but you’d go there because their sign would say something like “We Give Gold Strike Stamps”.

You’d put your stamps in a book, and dream big dreams about the wondrous things you will redeem them for. Will it be a hi-fi, a dinette set, a vacuum cleaner? In a time before credit cards and when families actually stuck to a budget, redeeming stamps was a big deal.

So, I’ve scanned some pages from a 1969 Gold Strike Stamps catalog. Basically, the merchandise in here could be found at your local Redemption Center; although you could redeem by mail.

Enjoy.

    That picture of the two kids playing in the bedroom is lit in a very cool/weird way. Love the atomic blast right outside their window.

    We did S&H Green Stamps where I grew up. The only thing I remember us getting with them was the big Tonka dump truck, which was a surprise for me. And it would have been about this same time, Summer of ’69 or ’70. It really made an impression. I still remember the day I got it, even where the Redemption Center was in our town. It truly was Christmas in July for me.

    I found “ALOT” and I mean alot of the gold strike stamp books full of stamps some never used etc… any clue how much there worth. I went and cleaned out my great great Great grandpa’s cabin in Montana and there was a bunch of them in the drawers. From no colored ones to colored ones, the non colored one is completely full of stamps as well as a couple others…. also brought back a frigidaire fridge only made by General Motors SER NO. 1240252-Drs-6-36 and a really old wood burning stove made by United states stove company Pittsburgh Tennessee NO. 815 walnut. I’d just like more info on this really cool working stuff sense everyplace I go to now they ask for money to even get a response from when they were manufacturered and stuff…
    If you’d like message me back on here or email muchmore.jason@gmail.com.
    Thanks,

    Used to collect Blue Chip Stamps back in the days

    S&H, Plaid, Raleigh Coupons (I got my iron lung with Raleigh coupons!{that used to be a joke}), Blue Chip, Gold Bond – there were so bloody many of them. Every drawer in our kitchen was jammed with the damn things, the family car was littered with them but Mom never put them in books or redeemed them. I never knew why.
