Bought this morning 3 more $200, submit the rebate, showing $135. Previous ones purchased (3 x $200) Monday shows 6 items and $150.

Just bought mine today 3 x $200 Visa GC's, and submitted the rebate 5 minutes ago. It did not say how much of Staples GC's I'll received. Do I have to wait for Staples' email?
You'd get 2 mails from staples/rebate. One saying "Thanks....." and second saying "your rebate is being processed" or some like that. Wait for that 2nd mail. Once you get it, it'll show $ amount.

not happy because I have not bought the other 3*200 for $135 yet...
that would make me 7*200 in their record and exceed the limit.
Well, I have $165 in rebates via (1 $100 & 1 $200, 1 $100 & 1 $200, and 2 $200) transactions when I should have $150 so I am over as well. It seems they have not enforced the presumed rebate cap of $150 or I should have gotten invalidated for exceeding the limit. But you would only have 7 cards. At this point any rebate amount over $150 in total is a risk IMHO.

So more proof that it is still working today.

This is the question I have been wondering about... This would be true if you bought and exceeded the limit in 1 transaction, but is the rebate system able to check limits as you enter them across multiple transactions? For example last week the photo paper had a 13.99 rebate limit 4. If I bought 5 in one transaction, I assume the rebate system could easily validate he limit a few hours later and would show you getting back a check for only 4x13.99. However what if you buy 2 in one transaction and 3 in another? If you wait a few hours and submit rebates for each receipt, would it be able to compare across both transactions and show you getting back 2x13.99 and only 2x13.99 for the second one? Or since each individual transaction was within the limit would it appear you would get back 2x13.99 and 3x13.99, but at a later step be rejected? And if you are rejected is the system smart enough to reduce the 3x13.99 to 2x13.99 or will the entire rebate for one receipt be rejected outright?
From what others have posted about returns and limits, the limits AFAIK are enforced on subsequent transactions and definitely within a transaction. People have done returns where previously they bought the limit or were at the limit IIRC. When they did a return/rebuy the rebate for the rebuy was rejected for being over the limit as returns do not subtract from the limits. They got it fixed by calling but to me that illustrates the principle that limits are enforced for subsequent transactions.

nanmoomoo - It might take another 20 mins after the 2nd email... Can you let me know once you get that?

I am gonna wait for your input before I proceed today.. Big Grin

Hmm.. CzarCzar was the only one who reported that today's purchase didn't have the rebate as expected ($135 or $150)... He has good reps.. I see no reason for him to troll... May be he bought 5 cards as separate transaction? or bought 5 x $100...??

I seriously doubt someone who has knowledge about this deal purhcase 5 x $200 in one transaction... It makes no sense at all... Best is multiple 3 x $200.. If worried about limit issues, then one 3 x $200 and one 2 x $200 per address...

I am hoping that he bought 5 x $100 instead of 5 x $200.. Big Grin Big Grin

Amazing that I call you out on your BS and now you magically came up with another bogus reply.

It's 2012, you don't need to use Photoshop to black out information.
Call me out? You are reaching a new level of amusing. Its good to know you take this so seriously, specially since what I said meant nothing to anyone not trying to scam the stores. But please, tell me how much you don't care. If I was a troll this is what is referred to as "feeding" me.

But we are getting multiple posts here of people buying today and getting those $135 and $75 amounts for their rebates. How is it only 1 person stated they got different when others are getting the deal. It doesn't add up.

I submitted my rebates within 2 minutes of each other. I got my 2x $200 "Thanks for submitting" email at 1345 EST and my 3x $200 email at 1347. My 2x $200 "your rebate is being processed." email came at 1531 and has processed and is showing $75. I still have not gotten an email about my 3x $200.

No, it does not add up. But once you have read a billion posts on Staples deals there is always someone who posts an outlier (or maybe it S/B outliar) that does not add up. Everyone else's transactions except for them goes smoothly. You just look for confirmation and move on if you don't get it. Happens almost every deal.
