      Does anyone know if the Back-to-School Savings Pass works on photo paper?  I hope someone has tried this.  If we keep getting $/$ coupons, I’m going to seriously consider purchasing a Savings Pass.  But I only see getting my money’s worth if photo paper is included.  The informative URL that I found on Staples’ website didn’t really say one way or the other.

        Here’s that URL, in case anyone wants to check it out:

        I am going to say yes. I went and looked at my reciept. This is what it says  HP EVERYDAY 8.55X11 9.49
        under it: Your rewards price $ 9.015
        Then Coupon # ( 5 off 30)  it took off 1.04
        Then Another Coupon # ( I checked – it is my 15% savings card) then took off 1.35

      I have a question. When a staples $5/$30 coupon was available a couple of weeks ago, they didn’t let me use it. I was told it wouldn’t work if I was buying penny deals and other cheap school supplies. We’re they wrong?

      • Kristy

        Yes. I was able to use it without a problem and I brought penny items and free after rebate items.

         I’m not sure why you wouldn’t have been able to use it.  Did you have $30 of merchandise before tax?  Were you purchasing items that didn’t qualify, such as ink/toner or other items in the fine print?  I used two of them in two different transactions, one for the McAfee Antivirus and one for other school supplies, which included several rebate deals and penny items.  I am LOVING the back to school season shopping.  I’m just hoping that all these rebates show up before school starts so I can get my kid a GOOD backpack.

        The coupon I had last week said it excluded those special savings…or extreme deals or something like that.  I didn’t even try b/c I knew since it had that wording they wouldn’t take it.
