This deal is listed in Page 9 of staples ad for the week 11/11 - 11/17. Limit 10 Staples Gift Cards per name/address/household. Of course, there is an activation fee of $5.99 on the $100 Visa / Master cards. Even after factoring in the activation fee, it is a potential $9 MM deal(in the form of Staples GC..) per VISA/Master card purchase.

OK then! I am getting my free Nexus 7 once my Staples GCs arrive! This is what I did today to get it that way.

I bought 3*$200 Visa GCs for a total of $620.85 and did another transaction with the same stuff (a total of 6 $200 Visa GCs). I came home and had my fingers crossed till few minutes back when I found that I will be receiving 2 $135 Staples GCs over the next few weeks. So, it is not true that you can buy just $1000 worth of Visa or MC GCs in-store or $150 worth of Staples GCs after SER! So I effectively paid $30 ($42 in activation/service fee for GCs minus $12 [1% cashback] for in-store purchase) and will be receiving $270 Staples GCs...

Begin your hunting for $200 Visa GCs and crank your engines right away!
You bought 6 x $200 GCs = $1200 worth of GC.. That is 12 x $15 Staples GC = $180 in staples GC for spending $30.. How is it $270?? :-o

SOrry if I am wrong..

You sure you can get a GC rebate for all 6 of those $200 GCs? My impression was that 5x$200 would put one at the rebate limit. I'll be doing separate purchases of 3x$200 and 2x$200 in a bit.

Never mind, your rebate status shows 2x$135
I have only used up 2 of the max. 10 rebates allowed in a single household. I will be lucky if I duplicate this deal few more times!

Did anyone get any $200 VISA in West LA?

I used online chat and the agent told me 375429 is not sold 20 miles within UCLA area. Frown
I had no issues finding them in the Inland Empire at 2 Staples stores.

That's the whole fun here. Staples somehow offers so much, so I'm not complaining laugh out loud

Could it be possible that "limit 10" means limit 10 purchases, and that each purchase has a $15 GC per $100 but some/no limit of spend amount?

That would make all the scenarios discussed in this thread correct so far. So, if I did 1 purchase of $1000 of GCs I would get the $150, but then if I did another purchase of $500 I would get $75. And so on until I made 10 separate purchases.

Otherwise, I don't know how to explain the results so far (unless they are just going to get denied / merged into one $150 max rebate).

The math you just described earlier is correct. But for some weird reason, if you do 3 $200 gift card puchases in a single transaction, you will end up with $135 Staples GCs. The fun part here is that this entire transaction forms just 1 of the max. 10 rebates allowed per household. Hope you get it now!

Whats not to understand? Rewards website is glitching and giving extra reward amounts than it should -- people will receive higher GC amounts unless Staples decides to correct the problem

So, IOW, the rebate system is counting each $200 card as one card but also giving an extra $45 in rebates when you buy 3. So, it is possible you could buy 4 more $200 cards until you hit the limit of 10. Apparently from your transactions it is not counting the total rebate amount as the limit.

Thanks for replying.. So, will be there be a difference if we buy it as 2 x $200 gift cards on 3 transactions.. I am hearing that a manager will be required to override for CC payments of $500 or more..

mathfaster, I personally think I have used up only 2 of the max. 10 rebates allowed as my rebate receipt for each transaction showed only 1 towards that count.

You didn't "find what you will be receiving". You found what they said they were going to send you. Sometimes a big difference between the two.

From other SDers, it was reported that 2 $200 GC purchases give only $75 in Staples GCs (rather than $60). If you wanna increase your rebate mileage, a better package would be 3 $200 GCs in one transaction.

I hope they meant it! From my previous exp. with SERs, I have never received a diff. amount that what was mentioned during the validation stage and hope this one does not turn out to be first. In any case, I am not losing anything here!

You know you could be right. I bought a $100 and $200 each in 2 separate transactions yesterday and the rebate redemption form only showed 1 rebate on the form for each transaction. My rebate shows $45 for each transaction. I am holding my breath that they don't fix this issue. This rebate runs for 2 weeks.

dont waste your time. staples wont survive long. if you look around, all staples stores hours have been reduced about 3 hr/day. they just shut down a few stores around my area too. this is an early warning of going under. less devils will shop since there are less generated coupons available out there. that means less sales are coming. i will cash my staples gc's as soon as i can.
