ok some key points about this rebate:

1. Staples weekly ad [staples.com] ,page 10, says only this:
"Buy $100 in Visa® or MasterCard® gift cards and get a $15 Staples® gift card"
-It does not say "Buy $100 or more..."
-nothing about any limits
Based on this, they have to give out at least $15 per each $100 purchased ... or else it would be false advertizing...

2. The rebate receipt that prints out is worded differently:
"Get a $15 Staples Gift Card on purchase of $100 or more on Visa and MC gift cards"
and
"Limits per customer/address/household: 10"
and
"Purchase $100 or more on Visa or MC gift cards...then submit or mail it in to receive a Staples card. Limit 10 Staples Gift Cards per name/address/household"

Now .. if they do not honor the PRINTED ad offer of $15 per $100, it would be a bait and switch scheme...
You can't tell me to buy something and promise me $30 Staples gift card if i buy it, and THEN turn around and tell me i'm only getting $15... and i can't even return the product...

So i think we're guaranteed at minimum $30 per $200 card bought...
However, the issue still remains on the limit.


As for the glitch:
On the Rebate Form that prints out when you buy 3 x $200 gift cards it says:

Description: $200 Visa Gift
SKU: 374177
UPC :076750095160
Quantity you purchased: 3
Unit price: 200.00

Description: $200 Visa Gift
SKU: 374177
UPC :076750095160
Quantity you purchased: 3
Unit price: 200.00

Description: $200 Visa Gift
SKU: 374177
UPC :076750095160
Quantity you purchased: 3
Unit price: 200.00

... it says quantity i purchased = 3 , 3 times !!! ... the system sees quantity purchased as 9... and it's giving me 9 x $15 = $135 rebate Staples Card

It is wrong that it sees qty: 9 total, and i would expect this to be fixed.... however ... it should be 6 x $15... based on the printed AD, otherwise it would be bait and switch.
