The War Thrift Stamp was sold for 25 cents a stamp. It attached to a Thrift Card that had spaces for 16 stamps and had a face value of four dollars. When the card was full, it was used to purchase a War Savings Stamp worth five dollars that could be redeemed five years later. The National Education Association and the American Federation of Labor endorsed the program.
