Thread Details

I have been on staples BL from this May. The sign is all of my online orders were missing and I was not able to place any online order.

So call this number 877.277.5977. Politely talk to them and ask for another chance. Usually they are ok for this. The lady I talked to knows Fatwallet, Slickdeals, Sder and e-junkies.

Anyway, I plan to be more cautions using coupon at staples. Shopping at store only is too much hassle for me.

No, they don't reset the list every year.

The blacklist is also known as "Access Restrict List", i.e. they will allow you shop at store only. No online access.

I heard someones even restricted from shopping at store. Not sur how they can tell ...

Online coupons are kinda few and far between now, aren't they? Should be easy to be more cautious.

How often did you use these coupons? People have often mentioned that it was fine to use one of each type ($25/$75, $25/$100, $30/$150) per month per account. This was before the recent Staples coupon overhaul.

Are they that strict now? I was under the impression you could use 1 of each coupon that starts with the same 5 digits?

I think Staples has clamped down significantly on coupon usage. However, I do not know what the policy currently is.

Contrary to what the left tells you, not all "discrimination" is illegal or even a bad thing.

I can assure you that Staples black list does not reset. I have been on it for almost two years.

All u do is ask politely? Are u sure it's going to work? Lol


I wasn't even abusing the coupon somehow they caught me because other people are abusing the system. Just like how I went to the post office the other day with my package all stamped. About $13 in stamps. I had taped the box so the tape kinda overlapped some of the stamps. The USPS worker said people are re-using stamps with the help of tape to stick them on. I told him all my stamps are the same pictures. It would be hard to find stamps to re-use that has the same picture on all of them. Besides only about 30% of the stamps were taped over clearly one could tell I was taping the box and it kinda overlapped those of the stamps. He made me pay an extra $13...so I wasted $26 bucks for a $13 package. Honestly I didn't know u can reuse stamp as it is hard to tear it off. Beats me.

Two weeks later I was over a friend's place and saw him pulling out an old mail that was sent to him and he just pull that stamp out & cut the shape to its original size and slab that stamp on new mail. When I saw that I just wanted to punch the crap out of him. People are doing unethical stuff and I get caught because of them. Fml. Lol

The unethical part is using tape on the stamps. When the post office attempts to postmark a stamp that has tape over it, the postmark can be removed when the tape is removed. . The post office voids them for this reason. For stamps, I use the FAR glue sticks from Staples. You can also use double sided tape (underneath the stamps). That is legit at the post office and your stamps won't be voided.

Hopefully it wasn't a total loss. Your friend can take the tape off of those stamps and he will now have $13 worth of stamps to use on his future mailings. You gave him $13 in stamps.

Yes, If someone sends me a package and the stamps do not get cancelled I reuse them. It's just like at Staples when I used my $10 off $50 office mobile App coupon, the cashier entered it as a $10.01 manufacturer's coupon (for whatever reason I do not know).. Of course I reused the mobile app coupon in a later transaction . It was still good since cashier didn't cancel the 16 digit unique code (by entering it correctly).

I don't know about you, but I don't re-use stamps. I didn't even know you can. I wouldn't even re-use it even if I know it's possible now. You can't reuse stamps with tape over it. As soon as you pull the tape back up the stamps are stuck to the tape hence tearing the top layer of the stamps.

I did not mean to tape my stamps. It was partically lined over when I tried to tape the box. USPS employee was able to postmark the stamps(as only the bottom part of the stamps were taped over), but he didn't care and double charged me.

The only way I can see people re-using stamp is by peeling off stamps that were glued on. U can't re-use stamps that were taped. It'll be stuck to the tape. nod

How is taping over stamps accidentally unethical? My stamps were legit. I paid for it and i don't re-use stamps. I took a loss that day. Unethical sounds more like what you're doing. You don't re-use another person's stamps just bc "it's still good" or "re-using coupons just bc it was manually input." That's messed up dude! Reminds me of a few occurences when the cashier scans my coupon and gives it back to me. I alway tell them "you're suppose to keep it" even though I know i can take it back & use it again.

If your morals allow u to do such unethical task then u should keep it to yourself. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

p.s I will definitely not give him the package now after knowing he re-uses stamps like that.
