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.

mine is completely different or messed up for good, i dont know.

i did 3 transactions for 3X200 GCs instead of 1 transaction, i submitted 3 rebates, yesterday it was showing 30$ rebate for each, I just checked and its showing as 75$ for each rebate submission.

I am not complaining, but still confused.

If those that are doing the 3 x $200 transactions and now it shows total items as 6 that means they are close to fixing this glitch since they advertised $15 per $100 and if you are doing 3 x $200 you are in fact doing 6 x $100 which would makes sense. So that means that the $1000 limit is what they are considering and that would mean whichever way you buy your limit will be $1K (whether you do 3 x $200 and then 2 x $200, or 10 x $100, etc..). They will probably fix the amount next to reflect the $15 per $100.

Did someone submit 2 rebates under same account, address, etc...? Especially both the rebates with $135 GC expectation... Are both the rebates still active? And what amount does it show?

I think DDHUNTER submitted like the above example.... Can you update us??
my two rebates for 3x200 for 135 submitted at about 5:10pm cst yesterday with same info are both showing "validation in progress" for 135 each as of 1:30pm cst today

Checking my receipt, each fee is a separate line item. so 3 cards and 3 fees = 6 items
hmm but wouldn't 3 * $100 = 6 items too... <-- fail logic

side question: for amazon payment (first time user so apologies in advance for this stupid question): do we just add a "credit card" in amazon payment and insert the visa prepaid card number to our account? Just wanted to make sure before i do something stupid.

thank you!!

can you bring me to speed please? What is the deal here? lol.. i just am confused as I am late. regardless, I bought 2 sets of 3x$200 Visa GCs now ($1200 total) and submitted rebates on 2 different addresses (home n office).

Can I do more? details please or someone please update wiki (or not keeping in mind some Staplers would be lookin here).
Does your in-store rebate receipt show "Quantities purchased: 3" or "Quantities purchased: 6" for each of the 3 x $200 transactions that you did today?

Why cannot you submit 2 rebates under the same account, address? I bought 1 $200 yesterday and the rebate is $30 and I am thinking to get more some time this week. I am a little bit confused now, 3 $200 is $150 not 3X$30? TIA.

I still have $135 for both the rebates. BTW, my in-store rebate receipt showed "Quantities purchased: 3" for each of these transactions.
I think I am gonna wait for some time before I submit rebate for today's purchases.... I was thinking to submit them both (todays purchase) under the same account (one of the account I used yesterday) since it will be 9 cards total per address/account and I will not exceed their 10 limit (if they meant the number of items).... Since they doubled it to 6 items and bumped it to $150 for one of my rebate, it is even more confusing now.. LOL...

Well it would be nice if the first page had an updated description on what to do. Nvm the nearest Staples is 45 minutes.
it's not that simple what to do. But if you want to play it safe and maximize your chances, you want to buy 10 $100 VISA gift cards, each in a separate transaction. There's no way you can go wrong with that and will get you $150 in staples gift cards no matter what. That is what we were all going to do when this started.

If you want to roll the dice and risk a little more to make a lot more, then read more of the thread. But mostly involves buying 3 x $200 multiple times per Staples Easy Rebate acct.

I would recommend you the same. Right now, it seems like they are fixing the denomination glitch and probably fix the numerical worth later. But, I don't think these actions are retroactive, that is, I am confident existing SERs may not be affected with this fix but only the future rebate submissions.

Yep.. But the problem is they increased the number of items to 6.... Oh well, now I remember... Even though I purchased only 3 x $200 GC yesterday (and even today) my receipt showed as 6 ITEMS purchased.... Someone please check and let me know too... Big Grin

So, the question now is, 3 cards purchased is considered as 6 and bumped to $150 GC.. Will the number "6" affect the housefold limit? I was planning to do 3 x $200 transaction thrice for each address.. Now since it has doubled, I am confused.. Frown
it does show as 6 items but its a bit unfair to count the activation charge as an item. if you look at the receipt thats what happens

update: plus if you look at the rebate receipt rather than the item total, it states 3

What I meant can be rephrased as: If you are worried about hitting the max. limit for an existing SER account, wait for sometime before the dust settles. If you wanna get better returns, open a new SER a/c for a diff. name and address and file for the rebates at the earliest.

Hmm... Yeah... Thanks...

I just compared by first rebate receipt (that shows $135 in SER site) and second rebate receipt (that shows $150 in SER site).. The only difference I see is - I paid the first one using just 1 MC credit card... Other one I paid with 3 different VISA cards... Did that make a difference to bump the total to $150 on second one..? Makes no sense at all to me... But, we can make a pattern if you guys could check what I mean.. LOL
