Send a Valentine free of charge in Amsterdam if you use a lipstick kiss instead of a stamp.
People in the Amsterdam who want to send a Valentine card to a loved one for February 14 can do so free of charge if they use a lipstick kiss instead of a stamp.
PostNL has promised that all cards within Amsterdam will be delivered on Valentine’s Day if they have a kiss in the corner of the envelope and are posted before 5pm on February 13.
The company has been ‘teaching’ its stamp scanning apparatus to recognise lipstick kisses for the past few days to make sure nothing goes wrong. ‘We kissed 500 cards with lipstick to run the tests,’ a spokesman said.
Some 500,000 Valentine cards are posted in Amsterdam every year. ‘But that is an estimate because they are not all easy to spot,’ the spokesman said.Source: DutchNews
