    • The coupon for the bic markers says 8 count or larger. Thanks for all you do! 

    • i just printed the coupon for the $2 off Bic Mark It products, and it specifies 8 count or larger…. the rebate looks like it’s for a 5 pack, so it doesn’t look like you can use this coupon….  :(  

      even so, you can still make $1.50 all in all, still free+ so still a great deal….  thank you for posting it!

      I typed in the code for Rebate 11-60727 but get the following msg “We’re sorry we are unable to locate the rebate offer you searched for.
       Please check your information and try again.”  anyone else have that problem?

    • Has anyone tried the McAfee rebate before? I bought it yesterday and the mail-in rebate form says “maximum $30” and to not exceed purchase price. It makes me wonder if the actual rebate value is your out-of-pocket payment…. I paid with coupon and reward–which are not considered money. Will still sent the rebate in, but wonder if I can get the full $30 back….

      Just went to Staples today to get some of the cheapies and to my
      surprise our area didn’t have an ad this week….. total waste of time
      and depressing!

    • I get the error for every rebate I search for – whenever you purchase them at Staples they usually print out the rebate form from the reg. is this not the case with these items? I’m going tomorrow and would like to the the items in the first trans/idea….

      • The rebates printed out at my store, but for some folks they haven’t. You can have the cashier manually print them buy using the rebate number while you are there.

    • Jenni Coupon

      Anyone have the codes for the pastel paper or Signa paper pads. Neither printed on my receipt.

      • I shopped at Staples today for the first time ever and asked the sales associate lots of questions. Both the signa paper and the pastel paper (I also got these) are for rewards not rebate. They will show up on your rewards (loyalty card) quarterly to be redeemed as “cash” in the staples store only. She said they are good for a couples months. I figured they will be good for Christmas gifts since they sell items for phones, computers, not to mention gift cards to restaurants. Easy rebates are for actual money either as a check, paypal deposit, or visa gift card. Hope this helps.

      Can you only use the $5 off $25 coupon once per Rewards account or does it even tie into your account?  Basically, can I do all 3 deals or just 1?

    • Deal 2 looks like it is off by $1.  Should be $24.98 and get $28.98 back, making it a $4 MM instead of $5.  Fantastic!  I already did a deal in the photo paper with the competitor coupon from Office Depot $10 off $50 for a nice MM this week.  Never had a problem with Staples discounting my rebate, I always get the full amount when using a $/$$ coupon.  HTH someone!

    • I was sorely disappointed with my experience today. I tried to do Deal 1, but the store said that since our sales flyer had Bic products Buy 1 get 2 free, they were not taking any manufacturer coupons! HOW RUDE!!!

      Additionally, the Pentel pen rebate did not print and the sales associate could not find it to print it for me. Oh well, at least I got the paper cheap!

      None of these deals were in our ad this week. We’ve been running a week behind the deals printed here because our schools starts at a different time. I’ll check next Sunday for these deals.Thanks! :)

      I have actually done a staples rebate lately where I had a staples coupon and my rebate amount took the staples coupon off (So I did not get the full rebate amount). It did not use to do this. So these money makers with the $5 off coupon may not work anymore. Has anyone else experienced this?

      Just went to Staples. P/Up the items in deal 1. Only therebates for the rebates for the Staples multi and the KOdak printed. I tried printing the other rebates at home…NO suck luck. However, after using the 5 off of 25, it si still a good deal. My daughterlikes to uset the gel pens.

      I shopped on Monday and submitted my rebates that day.  One of them came back
      “Invalid submission, non-participating store.
      Your submission is invalid because your purchase was made in a store that is not participating in this promotion.”
      Just a heads up to others.  I didn’t check to see if my store was participating, so I wasn’t prepared for this.  Make sure you check! :)

      Very frusterating because I bought the items and now I am at home not able to use them.  It was a waste of money.  Not sure I will do that again.

    • All went well with my purchases. I only got the photo papers and ream. As well as the Mcafee. Used 2 dif coupons one $5/$25 and $10/$50. All rebates printed out and codes worked. Only problem was when I went to put in the Mcafee rebate it said I am not able to do it online. Have to mail it in.

      @ Murfreesboro, TN store

      Deal 1
      – Bic Mark-It – No 11-60731 rebate info in the store and wouldn’t print anything at the register or on-line from home.  Was able to use a $2 off mfg coupon tho.  :)
      – Pentel – No 11-60727 rebate info in the store, nothing would print at the register.  Entered rebate offer on-line (with the Staples MP paper) and it accepted it.  I’ll wait and see if it will process through.
      – Kodak photo paper – Sign at product advertised $12.99 rebate offer.  However, nothing printed at the register.  Manager looked up the rebate (11-60627) and printed it for me but I have to mail it in.  :(  I may call CS and see if they can add it to my in-process rebates.
      – Staples MP paper – Rebate info printed and submitted on-line just fine.

      Deal 2
      – Staples Photo Paper – All rebates printed correctly and submitted on-line just fine.

      I used 2 different $5/$25 coupons each time and made 2 trips into the store.
