Spend $120/year to keep $480 in Rewards. 5% on the $1k spend (minimum) we are all doing anyway will offset $50 of that cost. $2,400 for break even. Shouldn't be an issue for most of us to hit $2,400/year. Could be worse I suppose.

ETA - actually, could be better. I'm sure most of us exceed $2,400/year, so it will mean more Rewards in the end.
True for premiers. All we need is $2400 spend and some love from Trend Micro, Visa and MC Big Grin

Edit: On the other hand, let's all blame ourselves for discussing the rapes on Staples publicly. EFF that, blame mathfaster/Sherlock. lol. I am sure someone from Staples' is always reading threads on here.

Nope. It just sounds like a lot, but spending $2,400+ at Staples really only means you spent about $10 OOP. And that $10 was probably for the one thing you actually needed. laugh out loud

Force you to buy $30 ink every 90 days? something does not makes sense. Will have to wait for official update. Sometimes Managers spew BS!
Same thing when I went in today, the one tech manager I know gave me a heads up and said very something similar, might be every 3 or 6 month you have to buy ink, 6 months for premier?

That is so true, its amazing how much stuff you can get rolling your rewards into rebates and rebates into rewards LMAO
At this point I supply my family, grandma, cousins, aunt, uncle and a bunch of friends with paper/photo paper and other stuff laugh out loud

Does double double reward mean you have to buy so much ink to get double reward or what? I'm a noob to this I've recycled a few times at staples. Tia

You buy =or>$50 of HP ink and you will get 20% back in Rewards and $4 per each empty ink cartridge you recycle the same day in-store or within 7 days for online purchase.

First, they did away with the $25 off $75, now this. So long Staples. Nice knowing you.*

*Actually, it wasn't all that nice anyway. Every Staples manager near me has been a complete douchebag.

Thats why I bought those 3 clearanced storage sheds at HD, so I could park my car inside. The sheds are for Staples stuff mostly. I think my staples arm extends to most people within the town I live in. The school gets a crap ton for free. No, this can't be happening. I don't want to see Stuples wise up, its heart wrenching. Boo Hoo... FrownFrownFrown
so in the end, how much did you save, after cost of sheds ? Big Grin

They still have $25/75 coupons but they're online/phone-only now. I get them a couple times/month,

First I'll wait to see it officially posted. There have been rumors there were big changes coming in March. Maybe this is it. IF you can't make $30 on MM deal(s) per quarter you are not slick.Big Grin Now, what type of ink they talking? HP or all brands? If any brand, I'll be getting a Brother J430W and buying generic ink and selling the $30 ink I have to buy every quarter. This is a PITA requirement but I'm sure we will all figure out a way to game it to death.Wink Else we aren't slick.

I have been too lazy to recycle ink carts and just found a bag of about 50 of them when cleaning out my garage. They are ~5-6 years old LOL

Just when I'm about to jump into the staples $2 ink recycling, it gets changed. FML.
