So if I trade in 20 ink carts today, I should still be covered under the old program, right?

Question on the new "5%" back on everything. Does that include printing and copying? Normally you get 10%, will this make it 15%?

I made two purchases on feb 23 and none of them shown on my rewards account, I looked the receipts and my rewards numbe is there, it's wired .
2/23 purchase was posted last week but missing the 2/18 for over 2 weeks. My 2/18 purchase was finally posted yesterday but reward was not posted to reward dashboard!

Last update date has been switched back and fro to older dates and I am waiting to see if they will post my reward value at all. I may do a online chat to ensure I will get my reward in March check.

Recycled my last 20 under the old rules today. Was speaking to the girl at the store, and she was very sweet. She sad "you probably know more about the new program rules than I do!" but she thinks that they will look back after the 15th so I should be OK with my ink purchase of several weeks ago. Guess we won't know till next month when we take in our cartridges and see if we get credit. Otherwise, hope there is a double double soon! I also got a printout with my receipt saying the new terms for the ink program. Basically the same spiel we all got in our emails a few days ago.

Used most of my 30$ courtesy rewards that just posted from last months double/double screw-up, cause they are only good till the 23 of March picked up another Paypal thingy and another one of those Scosche mini-speakers for ~7 bucks with the 20% off coupon. Those little speakers are pretty decent...figured good to have an extra.
Assuming they will roll out this new rules nationwide. I have not got any email regarding the changes, nor my recycle receipt yesterday printed out with this changes (My did recycle and purchase in 1 transaction)

Yes.

5% back on everything means 5% back on everything. So only 5%. Excludes self-serve copies.

If you have the ability to turn in 20 ink carts, I have no idea why you would even care....

It would be wiser to wait till a double ink turn in promo, not the 20% bs that is this week. I either turn in my carts when that promo runs or my ink gets turned in on the last day of the month.

Generally that is a good strategy but your carts are grandfathered before the new program goes into effect on 3/15 so that you do not have to buy ink first if you recycle before 3/15. If you recycle on or after 3/15 it is unknown if past ink purchases within 180 days of the March recycle will apply or you need to buy ink on the same day you recycle in order to get rewards after 3/14.

I don't even see the grandfather clause even working imo. Staples doesn't even have a clue.

They better hire some additional help to man the phone lines around March 20th.

Staples is offering a 10% savings pass for ink and toner purchases good through May 2014.

Cost is $15 for the pass.

During last double double promotion, they convinced my wife to buy that. Since her account already gets 10% off, the pass stacked and put the subtotal below $50. Luckily, a quick phone call to rewards resulted in courtesy coupons covering the difference.

Now, my question is whether I can use that pass on both accounts without any problems.

I am still getting 10% off from the generic promo online (not sure about store) and that should have ended for me 11/30/12. I'll have to think about the pass. Don't buy that much ink to make it cost effective.

I just read the entire thread and I am very concerned.

I just purchase roughly $7000 worth of Printing&Copying stuff. I assume I will get the 10% back. I will do this on a regular basis. I just started using Staples so I only have the base account. I should be Premier Platinum based on my company's purchasing power. If they bring it down to 5% back then I am cutting ties with Staples and move to Office Depot which still has 10% back. I will call them tomorrow to see if they can get me grandfathered into Premier Platinum with 15% back.

What does this actually mean to those who are currently Premier Platinum members?

Did you read the first PDF attached to the wiki? It specifically mentions some Platinum not being converted to 5%. Talk to Staples Rewards about your situation.
