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.

Ugh!! Today's coupon: 18. 50% off your binder purchase > $20. Added to wiki. Too late now to reset for 3/17 for software coupon. Might as well keep going to next Friday before resetting.
How many devices do you have using the app?

Just one right now. I could put CM9 on my Touchpad. One of these days. Right now just a jail broken iPad I. I want to see a full complement of coupons before I break any more devices. With coupons screen saved and good until 10/27 not in a rush.

Can you use the coupon codes online or do you have to use it via kiosk?

Secondly, if you use the at home kiosk trick, how do you pay for it?

I want to combine 20 off 75 as well. Can you please tell me the procedure? Thanks

Coupons don't work online. Kiosk pay at register option has worked for others. $20 off $75 in store is not stacking with 50% break room mobile according to others that have tried.

You're awesome; always replying my messages.

Also, Do you know if 20 off 75 stacks with 20% software. I'm most interested in the 20% software coupon. Can you pay at home with kiosk trick since I have a few ink rewards and I don't want to piss off or raise suspicion from the cashier?

Repped and will rep many times. heart

Kiosk home trick has 2 purposes. Order kiosk only items or reserve software and pay at the register in 2 days using store only coupons. Else just do a regular online order. Online coupons and kiosk paying could be an issue. $25 off $75 online coupons don't work at the register so I don't see why the $20 would. Use $10 off $75 paper or mobile.

Ugh.. I won't get the laptop coupon until next Friday. Went to Staples tonight and DH looked at a laptop on sale ending today, and the one on sale next week and decided he liked this weeks item better. So we went ahead and got it. They refused to take Office Depot competitor coupon on a computer, I forgot I have one in Staples coupon wallet that might have applied. ($25 off $100 delivery order, since we used kiosk). Any idea if I can take my receipt back next Friday within my 14 day window and get the $50 laptop coupon applied? Or will they just say no?

Edit: I did use rewards on part of the purchase ($60) so will that matter as well?

Since it was a kisok order, try to call or chat with Staples to get your coupon applied. The relevant amount will be credited back in your original payment form.

BTW, was the coupon $25 or $50? You mentioned both amounts in your post. If the $50 is for next week's promotion, they will likely refuse.

I have a $25 off a $100 delivery order in my coupon wallet right now. However I'm due to get the $50 laptop walkin coupon next Friday. (but that coupon is in-store only)

Bummed also that I forgot that I had Staples gift cards in my purse as well. I always feel so rushed when shopping with DH and I mess up. Ah well, the gift cards will keep.

i wonder if you run a wifi only device, and roll the clock forward day by day? can it work...
Let me just say this about that...

My checkin time yesterday was 5:34AM. This morning at exactly 5:35AM I opened the app and my checkin coupon was gone and I was able to get the next coupon. But only 23 hours had elapsed due to the daylight savings time change. So maybeit could work? I don't have a device capable of changing the date and time since all I have is an android phone.

The server time would have changed too, though.

I can confirm $20 off $75 breakroom coupon will not work with 50% off check in coupon. My cashier tried using each coupon first and neither way would it accept them.

Whoever tried this, did you guys try with $150 amount? If the register always apply 50% before 20 off (no matter how they were scanned) then the stacking would only work on orders >150.
