How To Start Collecting Stamps In Neopets
Stamp collector is a very popular hobby but it is costly thing to do on Neopets. This is where you could collect rare stamps for your collection. Achieving a full stamp collection is extremely difficult since there are many rare stamps, which can be expensive and hard to find. Although it is difficult and complicated, stamp collecting can be a lot of fun. The basic things that you have to remember in your stamp album: each page of your album can contain twenty-five stamps, and these stamps belong to certain Neopian themes. There are twenty stamps that are easy to find, and then 5 stamps at the bottom that are extremely rare stamps. And these stamps should be included in the thirty Neopet themes.
Why did I choose to start collecting?
I decided to collect stamps because it is much easier to do so compared to playing tons of virtual games, getting avatars and other random events in Neopets. Although I haven't acquired a trophy for having a high score in Stamp Collector category, it seems fulfilling to see that I have a decent collection.
What are the things that one should need in stamp collecting? The things that you will need: Neopets account and Neopoints or NP, which you will earn from playing a lot of games.
1. You should have account in neopet or open a neopets account. If you want to be safe all the time, never share your passwords and do not save your passwords on a public computer to prevent hacking and scamming.
2. Click shops then choose Neopet Central. When you go to the Neopet Central, you will be able to find the Post Office Kiosk, which is next to the NC Mall and Neolodge.
3. When you choose to go to the post office, you will see the shopkeeper that will say: "Rare stamps for your collection!" You could see the available stamps under the shopkeeper.
4. Buy the available stamps, which is available at the Post Office Kiosk.
5. You can save neopoints when you haggle and indicate the lower price than the suggested retail price.
6. You could look for affordable stamps using shop wizard such as: grackle bug stamp, mist kougra stamp, dice-a-roo stamp, grimillix stamp, gormball stamp, mystery island kougra, black bearog stamp, mr. irgo stamp, mystery island aishas stamp, etc.
7. Put the stamp by clicking the stamp in your inventory and choosing the option: put it in your stamp album.
8. You could also find stamps from auctions, user shops and trading post.
Tips And Warnings:
* As I indicated earlier, do not share your passwords to anyone and do not save passwords in a public computer. In this way, you will be safe from hackers and scammers.
* You should have a lot of neopoints so that you could buy the rare and expensive stamps.
* You could also collect coins to put in the Space Station Coins category, shells in the Sea Shells category as well as coins and charms.
* Check the overview so that you will know what stamp you are missing and what theme which you are going to collect next time.
* Once you place a stamp into your album you can not take it out again, which means you cannot resell it on auctions or trading post or even put the stamp in your shop.
* Evil coconuts are really expensive but you could get it if you are lucky in playing coconut shy game.
* If you have a rare stamp, which you plan to trade or sell in the auction or trading posts, the smart thing to do is put it on your safety deposit box.

Great Finds In Amazon
My Personal Experience:
Although I have not completed my stamp album, I managed to find 227 stamps for my stamp collection. I tried purchasing the cheap stamps on Post Office Kiosk and shops using the Shop Wizard. I can be able to find the rare stamps on auction but it seems higher than the usual NP (neopoints) price of the ordinary stamps. Sometimes I would not win the bidding of the auction but this does not stop me from collecting. I also get free stamps during a random event, going to Petpet Park, buying it from Igloo Garage Sale etc. It seems nice if I will get rare stamps from Advent Calendar without the ghosts stealing them away. Aside from collecting the stamps, it is easier to add shells and coins on my collection. It is because some shells are easier to find and their prices are too cheap and affordable. Your stamp album consists of special pages, which is big enough to contain coins, shells and coconuts. Few extra pages are designed to accommodate these collectables and their function is similar like the stamps pages. And you do not have to worry where will you put the stamps since it automatically goes to whatever page that the stamps belong.
