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.

found a 70 off on selected chairs in my coupon wallet for the brown/black osgood chair which is on sale for $99 so that makes it $29 and if you can combine it with the $25, then it's only $4. drool
too bad you have to pick it up yourself in store... Frown
I saw that too. I think this is one of those glitches like with the $20 safe, so best to get to the store asap before they send out a corporate alert.

The one I used just now that they might also change in a few days is the 40% off any Martha Stewart item. The MS coupons that have been floating around were limited to her Avery stuff. This one probably has the same exclusions but is not printed on the coupon, so I was able to get an override on a furniture order. Won't be surprised if that changes later this week.

Got the MS desk for the wife for $125. Normally $300 but on sale this week for $250 - $100 (40% off) - $25 (banner ad coupon). Yeah, it's more than I want to pay for a desk but the wife has been eyeing it and beats the $225 I almost paid for it this weekend. I was going to use rewards to pay for it but now I can save $100 for myself. Glad I stalled her on the purchase laugh out loud

Thanks! woot I got the Torrent chair for $4.99 + tax this morning! I didn't think two $ off coupon would work, I had the screenshot of my 20% off one chair app coupon ready (would cost $5 more). I have a stack of $25 off $75 so I figure wouldn't hurt to try since cashiers in my town are usually very helpful. She said it wouldn't work but I asked her nicely to please try it, to my and her surprise, $4.99!

I chosed the Torrent instead of the Osgood because Torrent is a few inches higher on the back, little firmer, and more importantly for me can have the arm rests lifted up and away to avoid being destroyed by my desk like my old chair.

Quote from rubadub View Post :
I am inclined to agree with you, but for arguments sake, if there are only 99,999 unique codes, there has to be some sort of control as to which codes will work. If all combinations were available to use, all the codes would/could be stolen already. I actually tried 3 or 4 random codes for s##ts and giggles and they all came back as invalid (not redeemed).

This made me think that either there is an extremely limited # of codes available or that each particular code only goes live after it is "activated" by a connection between the person's phone and the Staples server, and therefore not available to steal unless it was already created from a check-in. Just a thought...
So what about the codes that are available for sale all over the internets? Obviously someone guessed the code and put them all up for sale. However, does that come at the expense of someone else? Are the online sellers selling codes that were never placed into circulation, or selling codes that were already assigned to staples reward IDs (in effect stealing the coupon).

Im surprised Staples hasnt shut down this program......but, this is staples we are talking about.

You do not have to ever log in to your staples account to get the apps coupons just check in to the store.

I plan to make a purchase today with an app coupon and a $25/$75 coupon. If they don't take the $25/$75, will the app coupon still usable in another transaction?

Give the $25/$75 coupon first.

Not sure about the swiffer liquid, but I don't think the BR swiffer wet jet refill cloths will work because they are "delivery only".
