    • Justina

      Just wondering how the PC tune up works…do I just take my laptop into the store or is there a coupon??

      • Beth from GC

        I just took my laptop in last week and no coupon. The tech guy was as surprised as I was that it was free.

    • Rose

      Where did you find a rebate on the photo paper? Also till Dec 19th printer cartridges get you $6.00 back a piece in Staples credit!!You can turn in up to 10!

      • Bobbie

        I purchased something in store for a rebate and it printed on the receipt. You could mail it in or enter on the computer.

      • Stacy

        How does the printer cartridge recycling work again? Do I have to buy ink on the day I turn cartridges in? Is the credit given instantly or as a rebate check or as a rewards check? Thanks.

      • Jennifer

        I just counted my empty inks – I have 6! Thanks for sharing.

      • Teri

        The $6 per cartridge deal is only when you trade in HP cartridges and buy $50 in HP ink. Otherwise, it’s the regular $3/cartridge.

    • sarah

      New to “ultimate couponing” and LOVING it. Thanks so much as I am saving about 75% of my expenses because of your site. This is perfect timing as my hubby was laid off work for nine months this year.

      I have been wondering about best prices for ink cartridges. I have found little info on this topic.

      I had one cartridge refilled at Walgreens for 9.99 (with coupon) minus 8.00 catalina! Hoping this refill works well for me.

      Thanks again Jenny and readers! You all rock!

      • Jennifer

        I have found (for me) that if you have a good printer, the refilled ink is not good. It has messed up my printer before. I hate doing it because it is more expensive, but I always buy new ink.Who knows, maybe I just was unlucky when I tried it and it really is the same.

      • Teresa-QOCD

        Sarah, I used to refill my own ink cartridges but lately I have not been able to find the refill ink. The best for me to do has been to purchase cartridges from Staples and return used cartridges, the family kicks in and gives me their used ones to turn in, so the $30 reward per month buys my ink and paper for the next month. HTH

    • Haley

      Does anyone know if there is a limit to how many reams of paper you can buy and still get the rebates?

      • Wendy

        It’s usually a limit of 2 per household. I have not read the fine print in this ad to check this particular deal. That has just been my experience in the past with Staple’s.

    • Sandy Ague

      I took my lap top to staples last year to have it cleaned up. They kept my computer for almost 3 weeks. When I went to pick it up they told me it had totally crashed and was unable to be fixed. What!! It was working when I brought it in. They were supposed to back up my data also. The disk they returned to me had 1 song from my Itunes library of over 800 songs. They even wanted me to pay for the clean up and back up disk. I had a long discussion with the manager and they dropped all the changes but I still lost my computer. Be careful!

      • lynn

        wow dont think i will be going there for that cant afford to lose my computer…………thanks for sharing not everything that is free is worth it

    • ashley

      The only ink catridges they take is hp right?

    • ashley

      The B1G1 cases are $12.50, not $2.50. Looks like Jenny made a typo.

      • Angela P

        I think she meant that each individual pack of paper (ream) in the case would wind up being $2.50.

    • Angela P

      WOW! Right Now I could REALLY use a computer tune up! I’m about ready to ditch this one! However, now I’m a little leary about taking mine into Staples. Hmmmmm….. What to do, what to do!

    • Navanita

      I am thinking of taking my aged laptop for a tune up too! Is there anyone else who had a good/bad experience with Staples? It would help people like me and Angela make up our minds. :) Thanks!

    • I’m glad you are posting paper, ink, and tune up promos because with all the coupons I’m getting off the computer and the extra stuff I’m opening and downloading I can use all the computer supplies and support I can get.



      • ashley

        It was on the front cover of this week’s newspaper ad.

        • Cynthia

          And it states instore only. :( I was hoping to order that with my online order for the batteries and sharpies.
