AVG Boxed CD - Back IN Stock (Download is IN stock)
Trend Micro Boxed CD -Back IN Stock as of 2/17 @ 9:45am EST (Download still IN stock)


Ways to Make this MM

  • Add 25 off 75 or 30 off 150
  • Grab Staples Jan 2012 Cleaning and Bathroom Supplies catalog. It has a $20 off coupon on it. I prefer this to the first one since it won't raise any potential alarms for blacklisting
  • Add a Ream of Paper here [staples.com] . FREE with $100 Office Supplies Purchase!*
    To redeem this offer:

    Add $100 worth of office supply items to your cart.
    Add Staples® Copy Paper Select item no. 897802 to your cart.
    Enter coupon code 47190 at checkout.
    You can only use either of 2nd / 3rd option - either take $20 off on supplies or Paper ream off - The paper coupon does not apply to download order.
  • You can also get a coupon from Staples catalog that lets you order travel bag for free when ordering over $100. here' the how the bag looks like bag [staples.com]


Any more ideas - please add to the list

Rebate Method
Seems that the AVG and Trend Micro are both Staples Easy Rebates (SER). I've already submitted the rebates even though the boxed software hasn't even shipped, not to mention been received.

REBATE OFFER NUMBERS:

Trend Micro Maximum Security 3-User: 12-79426
McAfee Total Protection 2012: 12-77928
AVG Internet Security 2012: 12-77409

What is a Staples Rewards Check? Can I cash it at a bank?
Staples Rewards Check is a fancy name for essentially a coupon. It can only be redeemed at Staples. It has no cash value so it cannot be put in your bank.

You said Rewards Checks are a coupon, how are people using this and another coupon? Isn’t that double stacking?
No, on Staples coupons, they even tell the cashier the process for scanning, scan the coupon then scan any rewards coupons. Rewards are an earned from doing something. So really think of them as cash that can only be used at Stapes, much like Extra Care Bucks for those familiar with CVS.

How do you get your Rewards Check?
As of March 1, 2011, you can only receive your rewards check by computer.

When do you get your rewards?
I suggest just setting up your email properly with them because they send out great email alerts. But with that being said, usually somewhere around the 15th of the month.

Can I use a % off and a $ off coupon at Staples then?
YMMV, some can get managers to do this, most can’t. Usually they only accept one Staples coupon.

Where do people get coupons?
In the mail, in their emails, or from sellers like those on eBay or other sites. Kindly email someone in this thread that seems to know what they are talking about and they will tell you other places.

People are talking about ‘fake’ coupons, what are they talking about?
There are coupon sites out there that you pay a small fee for Staples coupons and they generate a coupon for you. Everyone has their own opinion on these coupons. Use at your own risk and as your mind allows you. THESE FORUMS SHOULD NOT TURN INTO A DEBATE ABOUT STAPLES COUPONS.

Does Staples accept manufacture coupons?
Officially from Staples HQ, YMMV. They say it is managers discretion. Nearly everyone I have talked to and in my experience, yes they do.

Can I use a coupon on free after rewards purchases?
Yes, BUT you get the proportional cost back in rewards. I.e. You have $50 in Free After Rewards and use a $10 coupon, you will only receive $40 in Rewards.

Do gift cards also affect my rewards pay out?
No, you will get 100% of your rewards due because gift cards are essentially cash.

Can I use my rewards checks on free after rewards purchases?
Yes, but it is the same as coupons. If you ask a pro-Stapler though, you are a fool if you use your rewards check on something that is free after rewards.

Does using a coupon on a SER (Staples Easy Rebates i.e. 95% of the rebates from Staples) purchase affect my rebate?
No, you will get 100% of your rebate no matter what coupon you used. If it says the rebate is $4.99, you will still get $4.99 back in a rebate even if you used a coupon. So for example, buy a $20 item with a $20 rebate and use a $5 coupon. You will pay $15 but you will still get a $20 rebate.

Does using my rewards check affect my SER rebate?
No, you will still get 100% of your rebate, like the above situation.

Do gift cards also affect my SER rebate pay out?
No, you will get 100% of your rewards due because gift cards are essentially cash.

How does Staples do their ink rewards
Ink comes to you as a Staples Rewards Check. You get $2 per a cartridge. 10 cartridges can be recycled by regular members per a month and 20 can be recycled by a premier member per a month. No minimum purchases necessary before you can get your reward.

How do you become a premier member?
You become a premier member by spending $1,000 (less coupons and rewards checks) at Staples in a calendar year.

$1,000!?!?! That's insane!
Not really, items with rebates count towards your $1,000. So say you buy a $20 item that has a $20 rebate, you will have $20 towards your premier status. However, use a $5 coupon on that $20 purchase, you will get your $20 rebate but only $15 will be counted towards your premier status.

How do I know how close I am to premier?
StaplesRewardsCenter.com has been updated and now has a nice tracker when you log into your account.

What are the benefits for premier?
20 ink cartridges a month, free shipping on everything at Staples.com, 5 months expiration date of rewards, and certain special premier only events.

When do you receive SERs (Staples Easy Rebate)?
Typically, 30 days after you submitted it.

OP, you failed to factor the stamp into the rebate.
Before you sit there and go through all the cost of transaction, learn a bit about Staples. SERs are EASY. You simply go online with your receipt and submit it. You can mail it if you want (and they give you a hell of a lot of paper to mail it) but that's insane!

If I buy multiple copies of a sku(product) with a rebate in a single transaction do I have to submit the rebate multiple times?
No, you only need to submit the rebate once. The rebate system knows from the transaction the quantity you purchased.

so using a $30 off here and there a few months apart wouldn't hurt, right? I haven't used on in ages, but thinking of buying one to use on this order.
shouldn't be a problem.

Quote from getdealsonline View Post :
yea but too many 25 off, 30 off can obviously alarm for a potential black list -- am just going to grab staples catalog from the store and use the coupon listed on it and get $20 worth of household supplies for free
yep... that's why i'm thinking of stepping out of this. i am half way to premier next year. used a couple coupons in january.

After placing order you need to wait for item to arrive or you can submit the rebate even now?

Staples is definitely there in the ultimate rewards mall I just got there right now just search for it in the upper left hand corner search box when in the mall. Smilie

The boxed software sell out fairly quickly -- especially with promotions like end of January with the 25% back in rewards.
