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.

Bah! I just got the old app working again and now the new version is giving me a blank page when I try to see the new coupon. Has anyone been able to tie the problems to some other program that might need upgraded, or come up with any other fix? I have already uninstalled and reinstalled 3-4 times, and tried clearing the data to no avail.

Interestingly, I just got an alert (pop-up msg when I wasn't in the actual app) on the updated app on iphone that I have a new check-in coupon available. The new coupon is a free ream of Staples Multipurpose Paper with purchase of $40 or more. Coupon says offer valid 2/19 thru 2/20.

Finally got my coupon about an hour after I checked in. That should work great for people who are actually in the store when they check in. Anyway, I am guessing that the way it holds the check in coupons is that you can have several at once. I see a dot at the bottom of my coupon screen and it seems like you can slide it left and right, like you do with pictures on your phone. I only have one coupon now so can anyone confirm if you can slide through several coupons?

No, the white dot does not do anything. However, using My Deals button and then choosing My Check In coupons allows you to get both coupons. I just got a notification on my iPad I had a check in coupon. $10 off $75 good 2/19-2/26.

ETA: Just installed the app on another device and the first coupon is the pen coupon good 2/19-2/20.

I never used the bluestacks before. I installed the software and had generated the coupon, but how I transfer the coupon from bluestacks to other devices such as my computer. I tried but can't locate the Bluestacks sd file on my computer under my user-app.

How do you go about completely uninstalling Bluestacks? I ran CCleaner to uninstall the it, but that just seems to uninstall the BS player and not the actual program. I tried to delete the folder "Bluestacks" from my C drive, but keep getting error that the folder is in use by another program. Any other solution of completely uninstalling?

For the legit copy it was never free. There are some hacked versions that are free.
