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.

Wonder why you are worried about that? It can be generated from PC chrome browser... You need the coupon or you just want to make it work with Bluestacks? Big Grin
I went back to the thread and found the direct link to the coupon. Since it was painless to generate the coupon, I saved 3 for future use. Does not hurt to have them handy.

yeah it does work. if you look in the wiki for that thread, there should be a step by step on how to get it to work. You need a specific app to play the youtube video (which plays it in the background too)
Was able to get Shazam to work on BS*. Thank you! At least, I understand better now how it works. Couldn't get YouTube to keep playing with Shazam open.

Haha, just wanted to know if it worked with BS*. Big Grin I do have a similar coupon from the new app that I will be using next week.



I do but I am not even sure I am going to install the Staples app on it. Wary about the reset process, I guess, as I already have some data on the device. I will be resetting a phone soon though and keeping it for Staples.
I meant using the Nexus 7 or any android device for multiple Shazam coupons.

Oh, I see. No, I am not using the Nexus for anything Staples-related at this time. I might change my mind later though. Smilie

What I have noticed with the new app is that when I hit My Deals and then Check In coupons bar is that a coupon I generated yesterday even though good through current day shows up blank. Usually current check in coupon is at the top of the list. Make sure you are on version 2.4.1. You can check version under Concierge icon. Also, one coupon every 24 hours.

ETA: And yes there can be a lag with the coupon showing up.
Still nothing. Has anyone gotten any coupons lately running the app under Bluestacks?

I got one yesterday under Bluestacks, one coupon on 1 of 3 other devices yesterday and nothing on the other 2, and this morning nothing on one where the last coupon I got was on Thursday. Have not tried the other 2 devices today as yet. Something is up with this app as they did add/change some splash screens related to 5% back in rewards.

Thanks. Looks like I picked a bad time to try and get app coupons.

Yep, but not so easy under Bluestacks, that had problems too (nothing would happen when I pressed the Shazam button). But thanks to lex2000 I was able generate a bunch late last night after installing Firefox.

Tomorrow I'll break my purchase into 2 transactions, 1 for the paper and 1 for the McAfee and use 1 coupon for each. That would be the same as the $10 off $75 that I was hoping to get.

Since I have not gotten any check in coupons yet, can you tell me when they expire and if the expiration date on the coupon is really when they expire or if there is a grace period like some others have.

Thanks.

Can a person with only 1 account use more than 1 Shazam coupon? Or is it limited to once per account no matter how many coupons you generate?

All the new app coupons expire in August. Even if they are past the date on the coupon. Just add it to a cart online to see if they have expired. Should tell you you have to use it in the store. Else, it will tell you used or expired but none of these have expired as yet.

Never had a unique 16 digit coupon not being able to be used more than once in a store if the second coupon is a unique coupon number as well. Online is different but store should not be an issue.

Do you have more than one device? Trying to figure out if they are restricting by IP address. Most of mine have stopped generating coupons in the last few days except on one device.

No, just this one device at home. The two iphones are generating coupons when driving near staples.
