Thread Details

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.

Only reason I'm so fussy about chairs is I work from home and abuse them 10 hours a day, five days a week.
I missed the $5 chair deal too. I'm not sure how I missed that deal though because I think I'd have bought some just to resell. My search or deal alert skills/settings must have been still in development. I already had a good chair for myself though, now as an upgrade I would consider a Tempurpedic chair if I could get a good enough price on one.

You mean you are not capturing them once they become available? That's the only way you can build your "coupon library" for future use.

I am but the rate that i get them isnt up with how often i use them or could use them down the line, 10 off 75 one of the best coupons happens to be # 1 so i reset my device like crazy to stock up lol, i just wish i can do that to any coupon regardless of its place in the lineup.

I used the $10 off $75 and 25% purchase of shredder in a transaction and bought ink and a shredder. Now I saw that earlier today Staples sent me a $10 off Dell ink (the ink I bought) but I didn't use this coupon.

1. Can I go back and they'll adjust the receipt?
2. Or do I have to return everything and buy it again? What happens to my mobile app coupons?
3. Can I just return the ink less the applied $10 off $75 savings (about $6) and buy it again with the $10 off coupon?

Anyone have success/failure with the purchased version of FakeLocation app? I'm on the trial version right now and it's working great. I want to purchase it, but the wiki ITT says there may be problems with it not verifying the purchase. I could purchase Location Spoofer instead.

LocationHolic crashes on startup for me and I can't get it to work. I'm on itouch 2g OS 4.2.

Thanks.

Are the app coupons still working? I had a bunch I got from a few months ago and forgot when they expired. I think it was October 9? Was planning on using a 10 off 50 office supplies.

here's a post from Sept 4. Not sure if that applies to your coupons.

You need to screenshot the coupon to save it. All app coupons now expire 2/2/2013.
The wiki of this thread says the coupons are valid until 10/27/12. Either way you should be good. You can always use the staples.com system to check if a coupon has expired.

I think your best option is to just return the ink and rebuy it to save an extra $4. If you return the whole order any 16-digit unique coupons you used (both the ones you noted are) will not become valid again, so to re-do the whole transaction would require new app coupons. Might be worth it if you've got more coupons stored up.

Yes, unless someone sold and used your coupons they're still valid. The old expiration date of 10/27/12 was extended for all app coupons old and new. The new expiration date is 2/2/13.

The $10/$60 Ink purchase coupon (if you saved them - in not, you could request one http://slickdeals.net/f/659093-STAPLES-No-offers-to-buy-sell-PayPal-coupons?t=659093) and the $10/75 coupon work for HP inks.
