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.

Did the manager try to override? Instant savings coupon always require a manager to override them for some reason
Oh, that was it. I completely forgot it needed a manager override. Cashier and helper had no clue. Thanks.

I just uninstalled and reinstalled the android staples app because I cycled through all the coupons. I tried checking into staples today but I'm not getting any more check-in coupons. Anyone else know of a solution to this? Thanks!

7. Do I have to go through the sequence? Can I start over?
You can start over any time by going under Concierge -> Settings and unchecking "Forget Me?" (it won't have the green bar on the button when it's off). That will delete your device information from Staples servers, and once you turn "Forget Me" on again, you'll start from the beginning.
if you uninstall, you are not telling the server to remember your system, so you're still in the same spot in the sequence. The "forget me" button is a bit funny, because it is programmed backwards. You want the system to forget you, so you're telling it not to forget you. But that's how it works, and why many people had trouble getting past the first coupons (they left it unchecked).

Quote from Cagnotte :
FYI:

Some people may recall a "feud" that erupted some time ago regarding the use of stolen rewards and coupons at Staples. Well, this person is now using a different nickname and is at it again with a different site. (S)he is active (or underground) in this thread and has cut and pasted stuff from the wiki onto his/her website. As usual, buyer beware. For those who are wondering why their coupons are coming up as redeemed, here is one possible culprit. Google for more info and see for yourself.

http://slickdeals.net/forums/show...tcount=552

BTW, (s)he is no longer using PayPal, but has set up Amazon Payments.

Here is an extract from the website:
"Our coupons and rewards are real and legitimate, they were released by Staples each month. They are not generated or faked. Which is why we run out of coupons or rewards periodically and have expiration dates. If the coupons and rewards are faked, they will be rejected by Staples coupons system."

Laughable, but really quite pitiful.
As much as I would love to make some extra money, this isn't the way to do it. I saw the listing on ejunkie and it costs $7 to screw someone out of their staples rewards.

Out of curiousity...how you getting 3 in a few days? Multiple devices?
yup.

got mine last night, still redeemable. and also...i don't think that staples are recycling these either because if you look at the last few numbers, they're going up, they're not doing any jumps...so yeah the codes are generated and sold on ebay and then used before you could get yours.

That was my argument to Staples corporate when they said there was nothing they could do. I said basically you're saying the only way to really get a coupon that works is to get one from the crooks and then someone who is playing fair ends up screwed.

Again, I'm going to just make sure I use it the day its generated, no screen capture, just show them the phone and hope they will override at the store.

Man I hate these stupid Staples thieves. This is the 2nd 50% breakroom supply coupon that was stolen before it is even generated! What a waste of all those check ins.

It works on the liquid version, so my guess would be that it'll work on the powder version, too. Please note that my purchase was in store (not a kiosk order).
