Please, no requests for app coupons or app coupon trades here. Post your requests or trade offers in the
Staples Coupon Thread
.


1. What's the Staples app?
This is an app from Staples that provides access to your Staples account, as well as Staples rewards account, and provides some useful tools.
You can read more about it here: Linky [staples.com]

2. How can I get it?
Android version is here: Linky [google.com]
iOS version is here: Linky [apple.com]
Any android phone or iPhone will work. In addition, you can install it on iPod Touch, iPad, Android Tablets, or HP TP running Android.

3. What's "check-in"?
When you are in a Staples store, you can click on the "Check in" button, and once your location is determined by the app, you'll be presented with a confirmation, and a coupon will be issued. The coupons state that they expire in 24-48 hours after they are issued, but in reality they can be used until the "real expiration date" (see WiKi for details). Please note that you do NOT need to sign into your Staples and/or Staples rewards account to receive the check in coupons. Coupons are generated once per device every 24 hours if you check in every 24 hours once the previous coupon has expired. The store makes no difference to the process. Multiple store check-ins in the same 24 hours does not get you any more coupons. You get the same one with the same 16 digit code. Since the device number is stored at a Staples server and coupons are per device, multiple devices will give you unique coupons per device.

4. Do I have to be physically in the store to check in?
Luckily, the answer is no. You can "spoof" your location by using certain apps that trick your phone to report specific coordinates. Depending on the app, you can either enter the coordinates of a Staples store or find it on a map and use that to create check in coupons from home/work.
For Android, Fake GPS [google.com] works great, along with few other examples (e.g., Location Spoofer, etc). For iOS devices, please see the WiKi (you need to jail break your iOS device).

5. Can I keep the coupons beyond the 24-48 hour expiration time frame?
Yes. If you take a screen shot of the coupon, you can keep it and use it later. On some Android phones, as well as iOS devices, pressing down power and home (or power and volume down) buttons simultaneously takes a screen shot. For devices that don't have this "built in", there are 3rd party apps.

6. Are the coupons random?
As of now, they seem to follow a certain sequence as outlined in the Wiki.

7. Can I stack these coupons with other app and/or paper coupons?
The % off coupons stack with $ off coupons. If you have 1 app coupon and 1 paper coupon (in either format), it will work "easier" compared to having 2 app coupons, since you are not supposed to have 2 of them at the same time. You can try printing out some of the app coupons to combine them.

8. Can I obtain any other coupons, in addition to the check in coupons, from the app?
The app generates coupons that can be used in store, online or over the phone. You can log into your Staples Rewards account from the app and access your Coupon Wallet and use whatever coupons you may have in there based on their T&Cs (e.g., in store only, online/phone only, etc). Those coupons have nothing to do with the app; they are under your Staples Rewards account and can be accessed from the web interface using a PC or directly from the mobile app.

This seems to make sense. I checked my cleaning room order where the coupon didn't work and all 3 items were delivery-only items. The only odd thing is that 1 of the items (Swiffer refill) is on the successful list. Would be good to hear other people's experiences.
A few of the entries in the wiki list make me wonder if the correct SKU was posted. There are multiple Swiffer refills available at Staples, some with in-store availability, others delivery-only. It would be easy to post the wrong SKU to the wiki by accident.

What was the SKU on your unsuccessful Swiffer refills?

Also, what did you do when you were at the register and realized that some of the items weren't going to work with the coupon? Can you selectively eliminate items from a kiosk order right there at the register, and only pay for what you want? Just curious.

I think you're definitely onto something here. Here are the sku/products for everything that was in my order. All show up as "delivery-only".

512235 - SWIFFER REFILL CLOTHS 32
826830 - TISSUE FACIAL BOUTIQ 6/PK
732178 - GREENWORKS ALL PURPOSE R

When I was at the store, the first thing I did was recycle ink, for which I got a $5 off 25 coupon. I then proceeded to ring up the kiosk order and the cashier said she would scan both the 5 off 25 and 50% off. She scanned the 5 off 25 first, then tried punching in the 50% off a few times and it didn't work on anything at all. I thought the 5 off 25 might have screwed something up so I asked her to try again from scratch, but this time with just the 50% off. Still didn't work on anything at all, so unfortunately never even had the option to try to take stuff off of the order.

Is it the consensus yet that for kiosk orders, the app coupons only work on sku's available in-store, and do not work on delivery-only items? That seems to be a common theme with the successful/unsuccessful lists.

Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems to hold true in my limited amount of random searches.
That may be why my app coupon did not work for the avery shipping labels. The skus were for .com ERBs. The instore skus were different.
It was very confusing .I went back twice trying to construct a deal,what I figured out I was trying to do was put together .com ERBs ans instore ERBs the skus were all screwed up
.I went home and checked the list of available rebates and noticed some were for in store and some were .com. Then I tried the kiosk order and the in store app coupon would not apply.

I had a 25 off 75 in store coupon, and went to staples to use it.
Placed a Kiosk order
6 * Tide Liquid 2x - 735935 - 11.99*6 = 71.94
1 * Seventh Gen Dishwasher Detergent - 700939 - 5.99

Got hold of a good cashier, used both the 25 off 75, and 50% BREAKROOM App coupon.
50% one did not work on the 700939 SKU.
Anyway got all the above for 18.44 after taxes. Loving staples Smilie
