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.

Yes, the first time it took about 2 hours for the coupon to show. Now it takes about 2 minutes or so. Of course you have to keep it open and trying or else it just backs up a page.

Ok, I checked in this morning at 7:30, 8:30, 9:30, 10:30 and still got the Martha coupon each time. When I checked in at 12:30 it gave me the 10 off 75 so it looks like mine is every 24 hours. Perhaps it is actually randomized? Nah, that would make too much sense.
Looks like it might be a new coupon at a certain time each day. Definitely not 24 hours for me at least. Might be coincidence for you. I finally got my first coupon last night (MS to do list) around 11PM. Tried this morning at around 9am and 11am and kept getting the same. I checked in again just now and got a 10/75.

I checked in today at 12:30 and got the 10 off 75 but on my other phone I got the MS coupon, On my main phone I got the ms coupon yesterday though, my spare phone was the first time checking in today. gonna need to check in throughout the day to see if and when it changes.

Here is what I'm seeing today:

Desktop (bluestack reinstall/install on 2/20):
2/20 - Martha coupon
2/21 - 10/75

Laptop (bluestack reinstall/install on 2/21)
2/21 - Martha coupon

Samsung Vibrant
2/20 - Martha coupon
2/21 - 10/75

Samsung S3:
2/19 - Pen coupon
2/20 - Martha coupon
2/21 - 10/75

I think how it is working is if today is indeed the 10/75 day then you must have at least checked in one other time before today to get the 10/75, otherwise you get the martha coupon. I think they did it that way so that we don't just do a reinstall/uninstall of bluestacks/software and keep generating a 10/75.

From my pattern that is what I'm seeing. What do you guys think?

Ok, I installed the new app on my old Samsung Vibrant. I managed to check into the store. When I go to checkin coupons all I get is a blank white screen. Is this happening to others?
It's working fine for me on the Samsung Vibrant.

I'm curious if the coupon for 10/75 being rec'd today by others is $10.00 off on $75 or 10% off. Mine is 10% off of $75.

EDIT UPDATE: I got 10% off $75 on iphone, and then got $10 off $75 on ipad. Weird.

There is probably a 10% and and $10 off. Check the first digits. They are going to be different from each other. I got a $10/$75 today on another device and it starts with 6240.

Can you elaborate a little more on what you mean by keeping it open and trying? Did you have to sit there for 2 hours and keeping tapping in and out of "my check in coupons"?

Sorry, I guess that was a little confusing. No, the first time I only got a white screen and I assumed the app wasn't working so I quit trying. Then about 2 hours later I got a notification that I had a check in coupon (the one that normally occurs immediately after checking in). Then I was able to go in and see the coupon.

Now when I try to view my coupons, I get a white page at first but it eventually displays the coupon. If I let my phone go to sleep (black screen) while waiting for the coupon to display, then when I unlock my phone I am back a screen and I have to start trying to load it all over again. It might be that it takes my phone a while to render the picture, but I get the same thing over network or wi-fi. My phone is set to lock after 20 seconds or so, so if I don't keep it open then it will auto-lock and I have to start loading the coupon all over again.

Does the 10% coupon have the normal exclusions: PCs, laptops, tablets, high-priced goods, etc?
