For the last couple weeks Staples has been giving out FREE batteries, and they are continuing this week!!

Just in time for all of those new toys and electronics, Staples has 16 count packs of Duracell AA or AAA batteries for FREE.

Buy the batteries for $12.99 in the store, and then get the full value back in Staples Rewards.  This is in-store only and there is a limit of 2 per week.

You will get your Staples Rewards in the mail usually within 6 weeks, and can use them on anything in the store.

      Office Depot has the 20 packs of AA and AAA and you get the full amount back in rewards.  You can buy 2 per item per DAY… and if you order 2 of each it puts you just over the $50 mark so you get free next day delivery.

        I am not seeing this on their website, can you share more info on office depot deal?

      if you pay with rewards do you still get the rewards does anyone know?

        I too would like to know!!

        • Amanda

          If you pay with rewards, you will not get the rewards back. I just learned this about a month ago. I bought batteries with rewards and only paid about $1.50 in cash and that is all that I got back in rewards minus the tax.

          • Kvcmdp

            Yep, you right Amanda… same happen with me… you can not buy rewards item with rewards… you only get back what you paid in such case.

            Do anyone know if I can buy rewards items with Staples gift card ?

      • Brooke

        I don’t think you can pay with Staples Rewards, I think they will deduct the reward amount from your next reward :( Not positive though

      I got $12 rewards back in Oct and didn’t realize this was in my email.  I just found them.  Does anyone know if they will honor them if I call Staples

      • Anon

        Sometimes you can call the rewards center (number is on the back of your card) and they can re-issue

      how can you change from email to mail for the rewards??
