S&H Green Stamps were the big thing back in the day. S&H now exsists on the internet as S&H Greenpoints. There, you trade points for the premiums you can get.

Savings stamps were junior versions of Savings Bonds. They were discontinued in the early 1970s.

No, can't say I ever encountered them. Wikipedia says that "postal savings stamps" were introduced in the U.S. in 1911, but I'm unclear about their purpose and how they worked. Were they still in use after 1950?

Do you remember "Savings Stamps"? You bought them at the Post Office and pasted them into a book (like Green Stamps).
