OH it is bad. not everyone prints that much. The news COULD be true in sense that Staples couldn't let this continue. "Heyyyyyyyyyy.. this guy's records don't show that much ink purchase but how the heck is he recycle 20 empty carts every month?". "Sir, ebay sells empty carts", says the associate. "Well in that case, you are FIRED, for not letting us know that and time for change to policy."
heh i meant OOP wise (they could have made it $50), but you do have a point. But hopefully it isn't true or they do something special for premier members (like increase our recycling limit to 40)

lol but that's too high a dream

The manager wasn't exactly sure how the $30 in ink every 90 days works. If you only need to buy ink once every 3 months that'snot that big of a deal Double double promo could possibly get you though march, April, and May.

I just got 350 ink cartridges delivered today. Wish I would have known before I ordered this could possibly drop the demand for empty ink cartridges.
Yeah i have about 400 cartridges at home. Well the office depot/ office max programs arent bad where you can only recycle as much as you buy.

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.
I am assuming you own a business

Where is the official notification of this? I highly doubt Staples would make such major changes without a few weeks notice to Rewards members. I'll believe it when I see it on Staples Web pages.... Managers are full of shiat half the time.

You know, looking the glass as FULL (half with water half with vodka), I say that $120 a year isn't too bad, given that we can recoup that money with 5% thing on all purchases. To break even, as someone said earlier, we need to spend 2400/yr. Last I checked, I did that !
