Bank customers who live in Pittsburgh and don't have time to get to the post office for stamps can pick up some postage at a cash machine at Equibank, notes Financial Services Week.

Stamps are dispensed through automatic teller machines at face value and the cost is deducted from the customer's account. The stamps are attached to coupons the size of dollar bills so that the machine can process them at what is appropriately called "The Stamp Stop."The reverse side of the dispensing coupon can be used either to list additional bank services or as an advertising vehicle for various consumer products.
