      Staples takes manufacturer’s coupons?

      • susan

        Yes

      • Ctrinkle

        But manufacturer’s coupons have to be the last thing you give them because of the way their computers are set up.  I had a staples rewards coupon and they had to ring my whole order again because I gave them after the manufacturer coupon.  Weird.

    • This statement applies to the sale ending TONIGHT, August 18.

      If your store is still open, you should check out the Zebra Medium Ballpoint Retractable pens that are free after rebate. The 7-pack is the sale item, but I found a BOGO pack for the same price. One of the employees told me it wouldn’t work, but when I checked out, I decided to see a different cashier and try it anyway. It worked. So, I am getting 14 pens for FREE! I tend to lose them at work, so these will last me a while. 

      If your store is still open or if you are not on eastern time, perhaps you can still score this deal.

      Does anyone know if Staples will price match an Office Depot ad (they are close by)?  I want to get a printer for my classroom that is on sale at Office Depot this week, but I would love to use my Staples reward money to help lessen my expense.

      • Pjteaches

        Mine said no

      • Ashleyn1130

        My staples (Louisville, KY) price matches

      I tried to use a manf. Q for the first time at Staples last night and they wouldn’t take it. It was the $1/2 BIC Q. The cashier told me that they will not take Q’s for sale items/ instant savings items because the wording on the Q’s that states “cannot be combined with any other offer”. Anyone else had this problem? I assume that is Staples’ interpretation of the Q since obviously every other store out there lets us use Q’s with sales.

      • Sis2

        Yeah.  My Staples says the same things, so I never try to use manufacturer coupons there anymore.  I think it depends on your store because apparently some take them.  

      • Meganmashburn

        Mine would not let me use it either. She said it had to match the picture. I explained to her that it said any 2 bic but she would not take it.
