No. One of them is the one for online purchases, the other is for the in store purchase. The coupon is for in store use only, so you can only get $599.99-$100 coupon-$100 MIR for in store purchase.

Very informative...thank you.

However, I don't see any place on the rebate form where a special number is required. It just wants your name and a receipt.

Edit: it looks like there are two versions of the rebate. One for online purchases and one for store purchases. The online purchase rebate form says you need to submit a copy of your student ID.

Quote from ben7337 View Post :
They apply the promotion in store, it gives you a code on your receipt which you can then use for the easy rebate online. Or I believe it is something like that. If you don't show your ID in store and get the promotion applied, then you don't get the approved code that the easy rebate requires.

However there is an online student rebate.

"Get a $100 Visa (R) Prepaid Card Mail In Rebate on Select Laptops (SKUs 932061, 932133, 931106, 931147) with a VALID STUDENT ID at Staples.com"

I don't know how you provide a valid student ID at staples.com

can 3rd grade student purchase this?
I could not find the rules for Staples but would like to see a link if someone does find it. Lacking that, you might have to call Staples support to validate.

Presumably it would not be unique for Staples and would follow guidelines similar to some software vendors. Here is a link to Adobe's eligibility requirements [adobe.com].

Assuming this is standard practice, the answer would be yes. But you'd need to provide proof probably as described here [about.com].

Georgia's tax-free weekend doesn't happen until AFTER the $100 coupon expires. Boo.

I get Staples GC's at 20% off face. Since I'd be paying $500 up front, that'd save me $100. So I COULD get this for as cheap as $300 AR (+ tax on $600 since you have to pay the taxes on the coupon)...IF I could find a "student friend". Smilie

The online rebate makes you send a copy of your purchase and student ID. The in store rebate has 2 options. The mailing one, or the online submission, with the online submission being the easy rebate. Either way the say you need

"Mail this form and the proof of purchase (listed in the promotion details) to the following address:"

The promotion is not automatic I am assuming. it will only be displayed if you showed an ID in store in which case the employee adds it to the purchase for you do to later. This is confirmed by the online submission option for the in store purchase, which says you need

"The Easy Rebates ID number, a 17-digit number located below the bar code on the form."

So you get an ID on your receipt when they add it to your order.

Quote from Chididdy123 View Post :
In slickdeals circles, it means brick and mortar (stores), meaning you have to go to the store in person to purchase it.
Actually it has 2 meanings

like Fry's deals B&M only

Making it brick and mortar for locals, and everyone else not on the west coast to B*tch & Moan. Subsequently, Fry's also took a Bowel Movement on us non-locals.

I don't think the issue is the rebate.I think it's whether you'll be able to enter the coupon code (57162) online or not.It says valid in Staples stores only.I'm waiting for my neighbor kid to wake up so he and his ID can go to staples with me.I asked yesterday,they said that was fine.(Today he's my nephew) Also,this is a semi repost (from eh.pgss yesterday when the $100 off coupon came out),but apparently this weekend is tax-free in a lot of states,so it may be worth it to wait.

Why isn't this deal getting more attention? Has there been a deal this good on a laptop ever? I mean Last I checked $300 is the best price a last gen i3 with no turbo boost, weaker gpu, half as much ram, and less than 1/2 the hard drive space went for. $400 for something with these specs especially with a current gen cpu is just unbelievable.

This behavior might come back to haunt you when the kid is running for President.

Most people are not students so the deal is good, not as great.

Good point, but I figure most people know students or there are young people on here with student ID's like mine, which has no expiration date. The only dates they put on my ID are the date I received it, and the date that the "student advantage" program that you can pay for expires.
