A cash card is equivalent to a gift card, not rewards, so it shouldn't be the cause. I used a cash card to purchase ink, and did get the rewards. Did you check the transaction details in your rewards account to ensure it is properly recorded?
Yes, cash card AFAIK is equivalent to gift card. I was hesitant as with the other office stores their merchandise carwitching are like cash cards at Staples have restrictions on use so not certain how something generated from rewards at times would affect ink. The other possibility which is why they should check purchase details is that proration of coupons inadvertently can lower minimums for the spend.

Stupid me. Just found out why I am not getting my rewards today. Anybody have any suggestions of how to get cheap ink from staples? FYI, the $30 ink purchase is valid using gift cards, no? Thanks.

Yes, gift cards are a payment method that works like cash.

I have a question for all you pros.

Nov 2012 - Purchased toner for my Samsung printer. Staples rewards used so I paid about $20.

Mar 2013 - Purchased $10 HP ink to cover the $30 requirement.

I've recycled in Mar & Apr and had no problem receiving $40 each time. Now, since the Samsung toner was purchased in Nov 2012, I have to buy more ink to get to my $30 requirement again. My question is, does the $10 purchase in Mar 2013 also count toward the $30 so that I can simply buy $20 and get 180 days from March or do I have to buy $30 and start fresh from May?
Buying $20 of ink worked! I bought $20 of ink on 6/24 then recycled 20 cartridges. The ink reward finally showed up in my account today. So I won't have to buy more ink until Oct 2013.

Hi EW,

I recycled the carts in each month from May to Aug however I did not buy the ink yet Stick Out Tongue

Looks like I will be out of luck for those rewards even if I buy one now. Am I right?

Also do you have any recommendation for buying 30$ ink which will atleast give me 20$ back? Smilie

The staples rewards system has only been awarding rewards for those who purchased ink in the past 180 days at the time of recycle.

That said, some have been able to beg staples rewards customer service to get at least a month's worth of rewards.
