It looks like it just double rewards, no bonus on recycling. In other words, just a double, not a double-double.

pbmpharmacist 02-28-2013 07:17 AM

Nothing for me to buy since I already cashed my rewards out. I'll probably stop by to get rid of my ink cartridges before the new rewards policies kick in.

yes, but you'd have to buy a $200 card (assuming your store carries it) for a $7 activation charge, netting $8 profit. If they don't have the $200 card, you'll be spending $13 or so to activate two cards, netting very little profit.

The very first coupon is for 25 off staples multipurpose 10 ream case. Next weeks ad has that case with 25$ rebate on it. The coupon should work 2 days after the expiration date. So, it should make the case paper FAR for sunday and maybe monday

Staples has Free reusable shopping bag this week (0.99 cents before coupon). If I purchase the free shopping bag with the FAR 5 ream case of paper, will coupon for free bag affect the rewards on the case of paper?

Last week, got free earbuds (after coupon) with the free paper and rewards payout on paper got reduced due to earbud coupon.

They have that $4 per cart only in the terms... It should have been in the heading of promotion since that is more important?? Not sure how it used to be before but dont know if its gonna work out..

Forgive the newbie question, but what is the advantage of the double double since you have to spend $50 to get it?

If I'm understanding this deal correctly you would get $10 back in rewards and a premiere member can get $80 in recycling for a total of $90 in rewards. So the profit would be $90 - the $50 for the ink - tax for the ink which totals less than $40 (or $40 if theres no tax at all).

Just recycling 20 cartridges at $2 each is $40 which is more than you would get with the double double.

What am I missing?

Thanks

The free ink...When you do the double double, the incremental rewards are $50 which just about covers the ink cost.

Interesting that the T&C would have $4, when the ad (at least my ad, it might vary by region) has $2 per cartridge in large print on the front page. I would guess that you would have to argue with customer service to get the $4

wealthisachoice 02-28-2013 08:08 AM

The ad that I'm looking at on Staples.com is showing double rewards but nothing is said about double recycling. The challenge is if you click on view more details it comes up with info on recycling but I will bet that it's wrong information again and you will not get double ink recycling.

Use caution when recycling with the purpose of getting double recycling rewards. If you are going to do it, check the details first and make sure you have it well documented and be ready to call Staples to get the recycling $$$$.

Yea it seems like coupon will be prorated across all items when it shows up in rewards account. Same for me with the crappy earbuds.

You don't need the bag though just give them the code for 20% off.

I believe that case paper is excluded in the terms of the 20% shopping bag purchase. Yeah, I also got burnt for $3.99/ea out of rewards for the FREE earbuds. Hell if I am going to pay that much for crappy earbuds that you'd find on the rack at the $0.99 store :mad:

Yeah, most people (ie; not SDers) would not fight/complain about the missing rewards. Going to chat up CSR on this today to get my missing rewards and ask for an adjustment on all of the earbuds.

it's a typo....


but have fun knocking yourself out with dealing with Rewards CS... keep in mind they already blew their "courtesy check" budget with last months double ink typo.. (and even then they were denying people the full amount)

so they might not be that generous this time around

fleamarket 02-28-2013 08:34 AM

You can IF you still spend $50 out of pocket on ink AFTER the rewards are applied and before sales tax. $50+ of cash OOP.

jjj444yes 02-28-2013 08:45 AM

so $34 in FAR SER's and nothing else

a $10 off of $50 on HP ink (aka Double Ink).. ahead of the 3/15 recycling / ink buy change is almost evil on their part... since it will likely require manual intervention to get factor into the $30 requirement... and even if that works out... the additional $20 you spent.. wont rollover to the next buy requirement (again, whatever the interval timing turns out to be)

AndroAsc 02-28-2013 08:47 AM

So what's the limit of the $4/ink recycled? 20 for premier?

I just did a chat with a Staples Rewards CSR and she said that a $30 ink purchase made today will qualify for recycling for the next 180 days. So buying the $50 HP ink next week should keep you covered for 6 months.

Yeah....and I am not gonna believe anything CS says until we get the full details in a few days. Program doesn't start till 3/15....so my guess is you will need to make your 30$ qualifying spend AFTER that date. I doubt it will be retroactive, as that would force them to look back all the way to last October.

Also don't think I am gonna chance the double/?double(maybe)...had to scramble for the full credit a week ago....just gonna recycle my (hopefully not last) 20 before the 15th and hope for the best.

Thanks, but the trouble is often the CSRs make mistakes, so I don't know whether to have full faith in this piece of information.

it would be wise to screen shot.. and otherwise document that for your benefit... in the event, that things turn out differently... as has been known to happen from time to time

exactly.. not touching this thing with a 10 ft poll... had to work too hard to fix last month's double recycle

and my view is. the less you contact rewards CS.. the less opportunity they have to add "additional cardholders" to your account

It'd be helpful if everyone added the name of the Rep they chatted with so we know which Reps are worth their merit. I got Michelle today (who was beneficial in helping me get my $30 in rewards from the ink fiasco a couple weeks back) and here's what she said:

(Asked if next weeks promo was a true double-double)

"AgentMichelle: As it stands, we are working with a double back in Rewards for both the ink purchase and the ink recycling due to the Terms and Conditions listed in the fine print. This is being reviewed, and the changes will be made if necessary. However, I have noted your account, and if you find one or the other is not paid out, please contact us and we will pay you out manually. I apologize for the confusion."

"AgentMichelle: At this time, yes. We are waiting for confirmation. If you make the purchase and you are not paid out for both your ink purchase and your ink recycling, we will do it manually, even if the promotional details are updated to only include ink."

Of course now there is still the dilemma of taking the deal or waiting until 3/15...

Elementary_Watson 02-28-2013 11:30 AM

Time for some deals for next week.

2 x photo paper: $19.98.
2 x ream paper: $13.98
1 x 5 ream case: $24.99


Apply $10/$50 mobile app coupon (if still valid on 3/3 or competitor coupon). $58.95 - $10 = $48.95. $33.96 in rebates plus $20 in rewards. $5 MM - sales tax on $48.95. Proration should not be an issue. Add other items and stack $10/$75. Good for the YTD spend. You'll need to do your own proration based on the other items to see if it affects the $20 in rewards on the half-case.

Was your question whether you get the 20% back in rewards on Ink purchase AND $4 back per recycled cartridge? If that's true, that's a great deal.

Yes. Sorry will edit to clarify.

So if people want more assurance chat with Rewards ahead of time so incase its not a true double-double next week, your account is still 'marked'.

Staples really disgusted me for what they did last time.

did you complain to CSR? I had a rewards chat with someone (Amanda) and they credited the missing $$ to my account (though they did make it sound like they were doing me a huge one-time favor rather than admitting they messed up).

Another newbie question. How do you get the $10/$75 coupon? Is that also an app coupon (I don't have a smartphone so I don't get those coupons), or is it mailed (I've never gotten a $ off coupon in an email).

I thought $ off coupons that some sites sold are no longer accepted in store. Is the $10/$75 one of those or something new?

Thanks

See this thread: http://slickdeals.net/f/4047718-Staples-App-Thread You can install bluestacks(Android emulater) on a PC or Mac and generate mobile app coupons. All the coupons are/were mobile app coupons.

There is also a $4.99 coupon that goes with the $24.99 case paper that expires 3/02. There may be a new one, but if not it should work 1-day expired. Stacking those coupons should reduce the rewards payout to $18.63, instead of $20..

$58.95 - $14.99 = $43.96..
get back
$33.96 in rebates
$18.63 in rewards for 5 ream case
$1.04 in rewards for ream paper

about $9.50 MM or so..

Is there any reason the app coupons will not work in your opinion? Didn't the last batch work up to 7 days past their expiration date? If they are not accepted, this will ruin my little MM plan.

Just being conservative. They all expire 3/1 so you never know.

Can online-only coupons be used on kiosk orders, either at the kiosk itself or at the register? I've searched on this question and there seems to be different answers. I'm trying to figure out whether I can buy 10 of these (using $25 off $75 online coupons from Ebay) and come out even. Thanks.

Only with a manager override and since with Ebay you won't have a physical coupon it makes that harder. You can call Staples.com after making the purchase and try to get a credit for the purchase if you still meet the minimum for the kiosk amount. In any case, that item is OOS at the moment. Online only coupons have not worked in the store on store or kiosk purchases since 5/1/11 when they changed the store system to not accept them.

I was planning on buying the download version. So it seems that the ONLY situation where any coupon can be used on any kiosk purchase, is an in-store coupon on a kiosk purchase of a in-store item (Mcafee Total Protection boxed for example)?

Pretty much it. The other issue you have with calling back for a credit with an online coupon is that coupons are not allowed on downloads. Not sure how well the .com CSRs know that rule but it is one of the conditions.

It has worked but when people were abusing coupons sometime ago on downloads it would go to research and then they would ask you if you wanted to remove the coupon or cancel the order. Have not heard of that happening lately since the Chinese coupon hackers went out of business.

try again. Say that you looked through the T&C thoroughly because you were surprised there's no limit and you couldn't find it anywhere in the T&C.

Are you premier or plus? im sure they're more likely to help out if you spend a lot of $$ there.

good luck!

So assuming the $25 off online coupons will work on the website, what I'm planning to do is purchase 10x of the Kaspersky software using my brother's staples rewards number (different name, different address). However, another question arises regarding whether it's safe to use my own Ink Bold card to pay for the order (and hence my own billing address) or does that create a risk of merging accounts? Thanks for the help.

Billing address is their usual avenue of blacklisting accounts IIRC for coupon abuse. They even put that in their database for guest checkouts AFAIK w/o registered staples.com accounts.

Using someone else's rewards number or rewards checks is a terrible idea, and even more so when you are doing an online purchase when you have to give your name and billing address. Like Elementary_Watson, they're watching us! :rolleyes:

Try a last time to chat and if you get nowhere, tell them they are enforcing different terms than what the ad says and that is illegal in any state. Then, mention your state AG. Companies are becoming recalcitrant and sometimes it is necessary to use that "threat".

Another thought: If I made a software kiosk order and rang it up at the register with an in-store item (like a Paypal reader), would the 20% off in-store coupon apply only to the in-store item?

All depends on if the online item is offered with the same sku in the store. If yes, then it should apply like the PayPal readers. If not then it most likely will not like downloads. McAfee TP 3 user with a different sku online has had 20% taken off via a kiosk order but that sku is OOS online right now.

Hi all, I'm a complete newbie to Staples rewards. I have $100 in rewards. From reading these threads, gather that I want to purchase items that have rebates and not rewards to cash out the $100. Is that correct? So I'm confused why some are talking about purchasing both the free after rebate and free after reward items. Is it because they are not using rewards as payment? If anyone can shed any light on how I can spend the $100, it would be greatly appreciated!

I don't want to waste a lot of people's time, so is there a thread that spells out the ink deals from before so I can figure out what is going on? I'm completely lost as to what is double double and not and HP ink vs other brand ink. I need to purchase ink, but not HP ink so I'm trying to figure out what everyone is talking about. Thanks much everyone!

Hi there.

First rule of cashing out your rewards into actual money is to buy FAR products since you get the money back by rebate. DONT buy free after rewards items with rewards money since it doesn't roll over, meaning you will not get any rewards back if you use rewards money to buy free after rewards.

Now about double and double double. There are these special weeks where you get double rewards for upto 5 carts if you buy HP ink which is called double. And if they also offer a percentage back as rewards on buying ink, then it becomes double double.

exactly.. not touching this thing with a 10 ft poll... had to work too hard to fix last month's double recycle

and my view is. the less you contact rewards CS.. the less opportunity they have to add "additional cardholders" to your account

Haha I just had an additional cardholder added to my account after chatting with them. I'm such a noob.

I actually had that happen to me in december. Used a legit coupon I received in the email on a download version, got a call from Staples that it can't be used. Person calling said they will reissue the coupon for me to use on a delivery product, never happened.

this is still happening... downloads + coupons + shipping to non tax states = fast ticket to "researching"

and can lead to other non fun things... such as blacklisting, merging.. etc

When this deal came up I was like not MORE paper. But considering the 10% back on paper will cover the sales tax it is not too bad. $25 for the spend for each case and FARewards & Rebate.

I can't get the Staples app to install. I'm getting a "Market Not Found" error when I select it. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Bluestacks but that didn't help. But if I am able to get it to work, will I just be able to take a screenshot of the coupon, print it, and the cashier will accept it like that?

Thanks.

People have taken print outs and been able to use the coupon. People have also just verbally given them the code. YMMV.

Limit 1 like almost all McAfee rebates I have seen of late. I did this product rebate in January. I am reluctant to do it more than once a quarter. Once a year if really conservative although others have repeated the offer in a calendar year w/o issues.

Having a hard time finding it in Ad.. Not in ad? I guess we could use the 20% coupon on Sunday to make a MM if it works.. Both in store and kiosk should be valid I guess?

Edit - Sorry.. Was looking at this week's ad... LOL.. Found it in the upcoming ad... Says SKU 959599.. Online SKU is different though..

Most people it didn't, but it seems like there was a few last year where it worked..

All the ones I've seen from this year seem to have not posted, but YMMV.

dadab 03-01-2013 11:45 AM

I did a kiosk order yesterday but left without paying as the only cashier was not one of my favorite. Can I take that print out to other Staples store today to complete the order? It does not say on the print out that it is store specific and is valid till 03/02/13, or should I just start a new Kiosk order?

Yes, I've done this a few times. Anyone who ever used the home kiosk trick in the past has done this as well.

As I though it should be. No way they screwed up not putting another Double and a big $4 on the front of the ad. I see they "fixed" the wording in the online ad. Too bad they can't change the print ads. Some folks will have that (and saved chats) to argue their point of getting double recycling too.

OPer needs to update the terms in the OP as to not further confuse folks.

Well they fixed it which they said they might do. IF you did not get it notated on your Rewards account then you are SOL on $4/cart IMO.

The very first coupon is for 25 off staples multipurpose 10 ream case. Next weeks ad has that case with 25$ rebate on it. The coupon should work 2 days after the expiration date. So, it should make the case paper FAR for sunday and maybe monday

For the expired coupon for the $25 case of paper, do they just enter the code and not care about the date? I would expect it to be easy if they just scanned it but these coupons don't scan. I haven't done much Staples shopping and haven't used their coupons. TIA

Depends on which version you print. The ones from the email blast have a bar code. So do the ones from the coupon wallet.

Also, the coupons obtained FB offers are sent as email.. And it looks like a piece of crap.. Highly doubt that Staples will take those..

Now about double and double double. There are these special weeks where you get double rewards for upto 5 carts if you buy HP ink which is called double. And if they also offer a percentage back as rewards on buying ink, then it becomes double double.

Thank you for the explanation. Repped.

also when cashing out rewards be sure to use them with coupons, otherwise you get stuck paying the tax (unless of course you are able to pay for EVERYTHING with the rewards). Coupons help offset the tax and you sometimes make a money maker (MM).

It has been mentioned by a few SDers that it's possible to cash out rewards by ordering something online, paying with rewards (but paying a portion with your CC), and then returning or cancelling the item to staples.com (if you return in stores you should get a return coupon, which is your rewards to cash out again)... I haven't tried this method out, nor do i intend to but it's always an option (and you can confirm this with a chat rep too)

Finally, to understand the entire staples game, just read everything Elementary Watson posts and you'll be all set. That's as simple as it gets

Good Luck on your journey of playing the Staples Game (though i think I somehow connected cashing out rewards to making extra money) :woot:

its $2/cart. But if you chatted with rewards yesterday, they put a note on account saying they will honor $4. If you did not chat, then you will get $2/cart.

Should. Just add the code to a cart online and check if it still valid. Still need the cashier to be willing to scan it. Register should take it. Of course there could be new $5 coupons issued on Sunday for the half-cases.

I think it is hit or miss on these. Some weeks it works and other times it does not. Similar to the current Canon mx892 deal where it was discounted $50 online, but you were able to stack the additional $50 instore on top of as well. Have to wait and see if it works or not on Sunday.

They will tell you no coupon can be used on download software. They will give you an option of removing the coupon or cancelling the order. Better off cancelling the order, unless you actually want the software.

Hopefully the system takes it, my cashiers will scan it...plus I'll be buying the warranty so they'll want me to walk out the store with a chair :p

That opportunity has passed for $4 cart IMO unless you contacted Rewards before they changed the terms to what they should have been and they notated your account for $4/cart. Good luck on that even IMO in getting the $4/cart based on the last promo. This time around they fixed the terms in the weekly ad before people started buying the ink. Sometimes it is better to not call. :nod:

If they noted on the account that they will give $4 back, i hope it is not a hassle to get the money back. Plus, the paper ads in the store will have the "typo" in them :lol:

Yeah, I know. My guess is it is a 50% crap shoot even with your account notated. Depends on which CSR you get IMO. Still going to get a 30 day voucher. Better than nothing.

I have a feeling that Staples will end the 20 limit for the double-double. They will probably cap it at 5.

For people looking at keyboard/mouse combos- staples has the Logitech mk710 [staples.com] for $80 online, and there is a coupon to get an additional $20 off in stores in coupon wallet. (exp. today, but i assume you can use it tomorrow).

The best way to go about this is a do a reserve in store which gives you the online price. I'm about 99.9% sure you can use in store coupons on these w/o a manager override, but maybe EW or someone could confirm.

I assume the in store price is $99 (which drops it to $79 after the coupon, which matches the online price).

(haven't one this deal myself, but I might do it later on today)

Register eats it no problem, but some cashier just want to showoff or whatever and they refuse to take the expired coupon.

Thanks as always for the quick reply. Repped. I just printed 2 $25 off coupon from wallet, but there is no bar code to scan , so that depends on the cashier if she or he is willing to take it or not, as the coupon says expired 03/02. As for the limit 1 wording on the Q , I can always do a seperate transaction.

Elementary_Watson 03-02-2013 09:24 PM

There is a coupon for the Staples MP case paper bringing the cost down to $19.99 AR. Last week's coupon for $25 is of course the better coupon. Says limit 1 per household on this new coupon but weekly ad says limit 2. Will see in about 35 minutes what the real rebate limit is for this case paper. http://www.staples.com/sbd/cre/co...N:20120909

:pray: please be limit 10. :lmao: With 10% back in rewards, this is already a small MM to cover tax.

I don't think you can stack both of these coupons but it does make using last week's coupon a bit more legit. Well sorta.

Wow they did mess up the terms. At the top they said "any brand", but later said "HP ink"

never got into that thread till u mentioned. its SD nature to exploit a deal to the extreme till its killed prematurely. nothing new i guess. If I was a starbux coffee person, I probably would have been in that thread as well.

I was reading a lot of pages of the $5 Stubx gc thread last nt and this morning, Looks like most SD scammers are flocking there. It's sad to see the real beauty of human nature. BTW, compare folks here with them, we are saint. The big company like Stubx, nobody cares who takes the money.

Yes, the limit is 2. Yeah, it is amusing when these first go up they show mail-in. Now showing easy rebate. The case paper is limit 2 as well. Not sure why the coupon making it $19.99 says limit 1.

probably means you can buy 1 case at $20.

Hello,
Does someone have a copy of the $25 off Staples Ream coupon? I just tried to print it and they already changed it. I would prefer the one that has the barcode, but any will do.
Thank you!

For that transaction at that time. I mean come on. You are selling this case paper at 60% off and then giving another $2 back in paper rewards. What's another $5 bucks?:D

Not sure why its amusing that the summary is not fully updated right away -- in the not so distance past the summary took several hours or so to update -- but the rebate form itself notes whether the rebate is an Easy Rebate -- online submission allowed -- from the get go.

Hi, I have scanned one of my $25 copies and are going to post for you and saw that you found a better Q. Actually mine has no bar code.

Elementary_Watson 03-03-2013 12:23 AM

If you ever wanted to see a double rebate take a look at Kaspersky AV. They had to have screwed up as one rebate extends to 3/3 and the other starts 3/3 making the software FAR only on 3/3. Wouldn't touch this one.

It could be interesting. I wonder if two sets of rebate forms get printed at checkout.

Also: "Limit 10 rebates per name/address/household." :omg:

binji 03-03-2013 01:48 AM

Edit: Nvm what I said earlier.


I sure do have a lot of planning to do for tomorrow's purchase. It's a bit complex and involves multiple transactions for these coupons. I always hate the dirty looks the cashiers give me.

But aren't the rebates good for only .com purchases since it just says on the rebate form they are good at .com.

Update: Looks like when you click on the actual form it does mention either .com or Staples store. I guess if it does print both rebates then we should be good to go.

mrtrance 03-03-2013 02:32 AM

So how does the Staples paper coupon that mentions it will $19.99 fit into this weeks paper advert where they are doing a $25 rebate on a $49.99 and we also have that $25 off case coupon as well. So presenting that coupon will take off $5 off the price so making it $44.99 price instore plus the $25 rebate.

it mentions " at Staples.com or Staples catalog between 02/17/13 and 03/03/13" and "at Staples.com or Staples catalog between 03/03/13 and 03/16/13". How does one purchase from the Staples Catalog?

I just tried a test kiosk order for one copy (of the 1-user), and both the customer copy and email confirmation show both rebates. Might be worth a shot. I think I'm going to go through with the test order. Combine with a case of paper + a ream (to trigger the OS), and stack with a 10/75 and expired case q. Absolute worst case is that I still make $10 on the transaction, and best case is that I make $30.

Just went on-line to "test it". When I click on boxed variations, it shows only the single rebate. The second rebate drops off.

I clicked on the product, the order page appeared (boxed versions out of stock and download too risky), it corrected itself to one rebate. I will be shortly going to staples and will verify but I will not be back online until mid day.

Just noting what I see - zip code 07711

I did the online download order for 10 copies of each (1-user,3-user) and received a receipt with all 4 rebates on them. Already went through Staples Rebate and all are pending, BUT...my order says it has a problem and is in researching. Will report back as soon as something happens.

Looks like both are OOS in store and online for me.. May be staples disabled it?

dbl118 03-03-2013 08:04 AM

Back from Staples. Got 2 photopapers, 2 Hammermill reams, and 2 cases of multipurpose paper. Used 10 off 75 (all I had), and 2 "expired" multipurpose coupons from last week. No problems with the order itself. With tax came to $80, with $84 in rebates, some paper rewards, and closer to premier. Hoping to sell all of this stuff too.

Based on your experiences, if I go back to the same store tomorrow or later today and do the deal again (submitting rebates for my father), will I have any issues? I was definitely noticed since there were problems with the register that made me have to be there like 20 minutes.

I did everything in only 1 transaction. I submitted the SER and everything looks good so far, but it's still early.

Problem was unrelated to deal. Problem was signature screen went dead right when I was signing. They had to get assistant manager, wait for reboot, fish my coupons out of register, and I had to check out again. Waited in easygoing cashiers new line, but then person there had a problem too, so assistant manager took me...not something I wanted to happen. But he seemed cool. I was already a little bit jittery going in, since in errand #1CVS made me talk to fraud department for my vanilla reload card (mental note, never use discover again).

Don't believe this is true. Just scan coupon twice, or bring two of them like I did. If you want to get clever you can get 1 coupon with barcode, and one where they punch in numbers so they "look" different.

Everything went fine for my order, and since rebate is good for two, I shouldn't run into any issues.

I actually don't mind my local general store manager, because he knows that he's guaranteed anywhere from $50-$100 or more in sales. The same goes for the lead cashier. Which I know is nothing compared to their corporate account sales, but still, if the store isn't that full and considering I'm in there basically every week.... I bring steady money.

The assistant manager OTOH, one of them likes to nickel and dime me on the coupons. He says that "Rewards" are coupons and implies that you can't use rewards and staples coupon together. He's also one of those that thinks you can't get rebates back on stuff bought with rewards. He's a very large fellow and as you can imagine, generally doesn't like to check people out ever so I don't worry about him. I even saw him making up terms when a staples coupon wouldn't scan for a customer in front of me on some of their high-mark up office products.

It is double on %for ink but only $2 per cartrigge

adamant 03-03-2013 09:26 AM

Just got back from Staples.

$25 off full case coupon worked (I just used 1, might go back for the 2nd case)
$5 off half case (x2) worked
20% off did not work

I also spoke with the manager about the ink deal. He said to hold on to the ad (paper ad has same typo) and if there's an issue to bring it into the store and they'd 'make it right'. Still not sure that I want to go through the hassle, but if I have to buy >$30 of ink to recycle in April anyway, it might be worth it.
