For TRADE: Empty Cigarette Packs

For TRADE: 
Empty Cigarette Packs

I collect stamps. And  one of my lucky 8 techniques, I stated that our collection can be increase by trading other collectible items for stamps.

So here it goes.  I'm gonna start trading some empty cigarette flip-box for some stamps.  And intend to follow the ratio of 10 pcs stamps for 1 pc of empty cigarette box (or shall we call it here as ECB).

Cigarette Packs in Singapore

Additional Info:

The type of ECB that I have looks exactly like these ones in the picture.

These are ECB's from Singapore.

The packets or boxes here are very unique.  All sorts of cancer and ill effects of smoking are being printed in the packets/boxes just to let the smokers know what they would turn out to be.

Just for your info, Singapore is very strict with cigarettes.  Tax duty is very high.  Currently, price of one pack of Malboro is SG$12 or roughly US$9.11.  I tell you, it is damn expensive!




And because of this, businessmen alike attempt to smuggle in these cigarette contraband.  Well of course, most of them, if not all, get caught, fined, caned and jailed!

You may visit the Singapore Customs website for more info on this matter. 

When buying cigarette, if you looked younger, you would be asked to produce an ID as proof that you are 18 years of age and above.

But still, lots of Singaporeans smoke.  I don't, so I don't understand it.  People here are burning US$9.11 a day!

Well, anyway, since i don't really smoke, I get my empty cigarette packets/boxes from my officemates.  She consumes 1 ½ packets/boxes each day.  I asked her to give the ECB's to me, so she is giving me 1 per day.  And sometimes 2 ECB's actually!

Oopppss!  I talked so much!

My intention of publishing this here is because i want the Cigarette Pack Collectors to trade with me.  Here is my exchange ratio:

I want to receive 10 pieces of stamps for every 1 piece of empty cigarette box that I send.

The flattened empty cigarette will be sent to you via ordinary mail.  If you want it to be sent by registered post mail, you will pay for the cost as per how much my post office will charge me.  Payment can be made via Paypal or Alertpay.

If you agree to this simple term of mine, please write your intentions in the comments page below.  Don't forget to leave your email address so I could contact you.

Thank you.
