If you haven’t taken advantage of the FREE 20 pk of AA Duracell Batteries at Staples, you are running out of time!  Each person can get (2) free packs and the offer ends this Saturday.

How it works:

1.  Buy (2) Duracell AA 20 pks at $12.99 each
2.  Use a Staples Rewards Card (free to join)
3.  Get 100% off the purchase back in Staples Rewards.

Use a coupon if they’ll let you:

-$1.50 off Duracell CopperTop AA/AAA 4 pk+, RP 12/12

You can use your rewards off anything that you need in the future from Staples.

We got a Staples gift card for Christmas so I just went and grabbed two packs of batteries, paid with the gift card and then will enjoy getting it all back to use again!

      I think if you used the gift card you won't get the money back. You only get back the amount you actually spent.

      • You can't use past Staples Rewards and get the reward, but the gift card acts like any credit card and is allowed.

        (I called their corporate office to check before going :) )

          Hmmm, I've always rolled my rewards at Staples without problem.

          • Nancybgood14

            me too i have even rolled rewards it to rebate checks. i did not even know the rules.

            • Ktwilson97

              Rebates are different from Rewards. Reward certificates take the coupon amount off each line item you purchase..which means if you bought the batteries for $12.99 & used a $5.00 Rewards certificate to purchase them. You would only get back $7.99 in Rewards. Rebates~you submit & receive the full amount the Rebate offer states.

    • Chucko4470

      do you get an extra rebate recipt to send or log online. i did not receive on efopr the last batteries ibought, like i did with other easy rebqte items. thanks

      • Ktwilson97

        As long as all your info (Email/mailing address) is up to date than you should receive your rewards certificate automatically. No worrys about sending in a rebate.

    • MK

      Bummer. I was going to use my past rewards to get these but see now that I can't. Still a great deal. Now I just need to find something to use my $10 rewards on before they expire on Friday.

      • Ktwilson97

        You can use your rewards to purchase the battery deal but you only get back what you paid for them.

    • Avr

      Once I get a rebate for a battery purchase – Do I get this as a Staples Gift Card? – Can I again purchase batteries & roll the rewards?

    • Sandy

      I did this deal when you first posted it on Souther Savers and I have not seen my refund check yet. Do you know how long until we get the money back?

      • Ktwilson97

        You'll receive your rewards certificate by the end of January.

    • Fallaya

      How do you get your money back? Is it in the form of a check, or is it a Staples gift card?

      • Ktwilson97

        The money comes back on a rewards certificate that you can use in the store. They will have expiration dates…so don't miss out.

    • Nancybgood14

      oh this can be with p&G right i needed one more transaction to get another book. so cool going thurs

    • Kellee

      Thank you for the reminder!

    • tori729

      Thanks for this! With all of the new toys this year, a lot of them need batteries. Bummer that it's only on the AA though. But I have a Staples gift card that's been waiting to be used since summer I think.

      • Kori

        AAA too I think.

    • Kori

      Was it 2 per week? I got 2 a couple weeks ago and again last week. I was thinking I would the $ back for all 4. Anyone know?

      Found a a Snuggie in Staples yesterday for $4.90! One subject notebooks (fancy-looking ones) and good quality two pocket folders were 50 cents! Search the store for markdowns and clearance.
