Please, no requests for app coupons or app coupon trades here. Post your requests or trade offers in the
Staples Coupon Thread
.


1. What's the Staples app?
This is an app from Staples that provides access to your Staples account, as well as Staples rewards account, and provides some useful tools.
You can read more about it here: Linky [staples.com]

2. How can I get it?
Android version is here: Linky [google.com]
iOS version is here: Linky [apple.com]
Any android phone or iPhone will work. In addition, you can install it on iPod Touch, iPad, Android Tablets, or HP TP running Android.

3. What's "check-in"?
When you are in a Staples store, you can click on the "Check in" button, and once your location is determined by the app, you'll be presented with a confirmation, and a coupon will be issued. The coupons state that they expire in 24-48 hours after they are issued, but in reality they can be used until the "real expiration date" (see WiKi for details). Please note that you do NOT need to sign into your Staples and/or Staples rewards account to receive the check in coupons. Coupons are generated once per device every 24 hours if you check in every 24 hours once the previous coupon has expired. The store makes no difference to the process. Multiple store check-ins in the same 24 hours does not get you any more coupons. You get the same one with the same 16 digit code. Since the device number is stored at a Staples server and coupons are per device, multiple devices will give you unique coupons per device.

4. Do I have to be physically in the store to check in?
Luckily, the answer is no. You can "spoof" your location by using certain apps that trick your phone to report specific coordinates. Depending on the app, you can either enter the coordinates of a Staples store or find it on a map and use that to create check in coupons from home/work.
For Android, Fake GPS [google.com] works great, along with few other examples (e.g., Location Spoofer, etc). For iOS devices, please see the WiKi (you need to jail break your iOS device).

5. Can I keep the coupons beyond the 24-48 hour expiration time frame?
Yes. If you take a screen shot of the coupon, you can keep it and use it later. On some Android phones, as well as iOS devices, pressing down power and home (or power and volume down) buttons simultaneously takes a screen shot. For devices that don't have this "built in", there are 3rd party apps.

6. Are the coupons random?
As of now, they seem to follow a certain sequence as outlined in the Wiki.

7. Can I stack these coupons with other app and/or paper coupons?
The % off coupons stack with $ off coupons. If you have 1 app coupon and 1 paper coupon (in either format), it will work "easier" compared to having 2 app coupons, since you are not supposed to have 2 of them at the same time. You can try printing out some of the app coupons to combine them.

8. Can I obtain any other coupons, in addition to the check in coupons, from the app?
The app generates coupons that can be used in store, online or over the phone. You can log into your Staples Rewards account from the app and access your Coupon Wallet and use whatever coupons you may have in there based on their T&Cs (e.g., in store only, online/phone only, etc). Those coupons have nothing to do with the app; they are under your Staples Rewards account and can be accessed from the web interface using a PC or directly from the mobile app.

Yep !! I was relieved on seeing that and the $10 off coupons are not gonna be dead I assume..

I wonder how I got this one before 24 hours.. Do you want to try with the device that you used last night and see what happens? I checked in last night and got the pen coupon almost at the same time as you...

When I reinstalled the new app, I saw Revu pen coupon. It scared hell out of me. As long as there is 10/75, that is good enough for me. But I guess we need to reach the cycle again in order to find out all the new coupons for this new app.

So once we get the 10/50 OS coupon from old version of Staples app we can just uninstall and reinstall bluestacks and get new staples app and start generating the new coupons.

We should only generate will old app until we get the 2722 10/75 and the 10/50 OS one. After those the rest are either expired or of no value so better to uninstall/reinstall at this time to start cycling the new coupons now that a 10/75 is there as well.

New version of the app crashes on me when I try to open the new coupon that it generates! Anyone else experience this...I'm on Galaxy Nexus.
Quote from Sportsaholic View Post :
That happened me on Nexus 4 too. May be it was 4.2.2. I just uninstalled/Reinstalled the app and it was working again.
Quote from rockingsd View Post :
I installed the new app, and when checked in, it showed on the top, that I got a new coupon, but once I try to open the coupon, the app crashed like 4-5 times. I uninstalled, installed the app back, now am able to go to coupons, but it comes up blank. No coupon Frown
Quote from rubadub View Post :
Yeah, the app is all screwed up for me. Updated the app on two devices. Takes 5 mins to load the app, then another 5 mins to check in, if it even checks in at all. Most of the time it just hangs on the "loading" screen. The 3 times I was able to get past the check in, the app would crash when I try to get the coupon.

The two devices I used are devices that I do not reset and have not generated coupons in a while. I'm wondering if that has anything to do with it, i.e., being at the end of the cycle screws something up when the app communicates with the server. Will test on a fresh reset on my spare device as soon as I get the OS coupon in a few days.
this is dumb. Android 4.0 app crashes. Tried reinstalling/uninstalling. No luck. Frown

Yesterday morning 2/18 I generated a new pen coupon. It said 2/18-2/19. This morning when checking coupons it only says 2/19-2/19 for the same code for the pens. Will check again after it has been 24 hours since the code was generated and see if anything changes. Another code I generated the other day showed 2/18-2/18. When added to a cart online today 2/19 says not valid online only at a register
