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.

How do I find out how much the rebate is going to be? I just bought 3x $200 Visa GC, and the rebate form shows:

$200 Visa gift
Quantity you purchased: 3
$200 Visa gift
Quantity you purchased: 3
$200 Visa gift
Quantity you purchased: 3

Does that mean that I'm going to get 9 x $15?

I tried entering my number on www.stapleseasyrebates.com, but it doesn't say how much the rebate is. Where are you guys getting your rebate amounts?

Confused Are you saying that limit 10/address doesn't work at staples?
No, they are taking this to the extreme IF Staples is counting 10 transactions as the limit and does not care about how many gift cards are bought with each transaction.

staples terms on this rebate is just a mess up. anyone can interpret anyway. from what i understood "limit up to 10 Staples Gift Cards per household/name". this is exact quote from their rebate terms. but that's not what they meant. what they wanted to say is "limit up to 10 gift card purchases per household/name".

so you can argue all you want. each receipt will have 1 rebate form. you have 1 Staples Gift Card per receipt. there you go. let see how many visa/master cards you can buy in each receipt Smilie

Did you submit the rebate? Submit it and check again in 4 hours. You should get $135 for buying 3x$200 the way the rebate system is figuring rebates at the moment.

Yeah, I submitted it. I have a tracking number. So the amount of the gift card that's coming in will show up in 4 hours? I'll check then.

they will tell you the final amount when they do the pre-auth process, usually about 3 hr after you submission.

Yes, check tomorrow. It takes 3-4 hours after purchase for the transaction data to get to the rebate processor from the Staples retail system.

Remains to be seen but doesn't sound valid/true.

And you would be a trolling liar.
Lol OK...believe what you want. Its not like it really affects you unless you are trying to do something against the rules like use your rewards or other gift cards. We havent heard anything about not allowing customers to use credit cards for their giftcard transaction so that must be a regional thing. Trolliladeeda.

what do you mean? do you mean they wont send 1 single Staples reward card for each rebate form? are you saying that they will split that $135 into 3 Staples reward cards on that single rebate of 3 gift cards that you bought?

Haha I don't think you could pay anyone enough to be customer service if staples retroactively fixes this glitch.

Got my Staples $20 GC today for purchasing 2 $100 MasterCard last time. Visa GC deal this time seems more appealing.

YMMV but I was able to upgrade my $100 Staples gift card I received during the last deal and got 2 $50 shell gift cards.
I just told the cashier it accepted last time and to just try it out and they did it.

Right now the system seems to limit 10 cards/name regardless of purchase amount but you if you got your 2x200 shown up as four $200's and your 3x200 as six $200's, you're basically maxed out. It's just my guess but I don't dare to try more under same address.

Jatan posted something on that other forum which makes the most sense as to why there were double postings of line items today. My new educated guess is that they had an unscheduled outage last night. They did not know what transaction detail had gotten transferred to Parago and what did not. So, they transferred all transaction detail for purchases during the outage period and reprocessed the rebates which is why some people got second processing emails and why there are duplicate lines on some rebates. The rebate amounts went up due to the extra transaction detail. Now when and if they fix this is anyone's guess but IMHO it was not to fix the amount glitch. Now a good IT system would have spun off those duplicate transactions but apparently their process is not that good.

Jatan asked a good question. For those who had double line entries, did you make the purchase during the outage period? Or just before or after the outage?
