      • Jamie

        Just looked on their website and unfortunately these deals don't apply in my area so be sure to check your own area.

        • flower_mom

          This is the ad that starts this Sunday (7/24)…tomorrow…so, it shouldn't be on the staples site yet.  Maybe this why.  I bet tomorrow they will be deals for your area.  :)

          • Guest

            In the middle of the week they have the ad for the following week on their website.

        • Laurie

          Last week it showed 10c deals on the website for my area, but when I got to the store they were actually 1c deals, so not sure what to expect this week.

    • Jenny9150

      I can't pull-up the Avery coupon.  Anyone else getting the message the page cannot be found?

      • Jenny9150

        Can't pull-up the 20% coupon either.

        • flower_mom

          Neither can I (pull up the 20% off coupon).  It's ok…they probably wouldn't have let me use it along with the $/$$ coupon anyways.

      • Where did you find the avery coupon? Did you get them from the website? I found  one AVERY for notepad. Its like an attachment, if you need one, i can always forward it to you,

    • Vpmm67

      Love it !! Love it ! Thank you my husband goes through Sharpie markers worse than my kids ever did pens but I guess if I had to write on people's concrete I would too! LOL

    • Dianne L

      The 5/25 coupon is very small and has the store as Ponce de Leon in Atlanta.
      Do either of these factors matter in using the coupon? Thanks!

      • flower_mom

        I would think as long as it doen't say it is valid only at that store on the printed coupon on there, it shouldn't be a problem.

      • You should be able to get one for any area by changing the zipcode of the ad in their system.

    • Leah Elliott5

      I can't pull up the Avery or 20% off coupons!

      • Bh

        googled”staples 20%” and found it 3rd listing down

      • Avery $1 off coupon only for notepad,…I think so,…

    • julie mars

      Does anyone know if you can only buy white paper for the easy rebate (.50 cost after rebate)?  I need to buy my kid's teachers a  ream of colored paper.

      • Jamie

        In my experience the colored paper is not on the rebate offer.

    • Kathryn Smith

      Avery coupons not working :(

      • Are you looking Avery for notepad ? There is $1 off, but I think It doesn't included on this sale, not for the $0.50. Let me know if you need the $1 off coupon for AVERY Notepad. I can forward it for you

    • guest

      what zip code shows the add above?

      • you can type 90210. Also there is a free BIC, and couon $5 off $25. You can pair item to get all of them for free after Easy Rebat too

    • Tonya

      I just checked my add for Greenville, SC and it is very different!!  So make sure you check the add for your area!!  We have 10 cent items of Sharpie yellow highlighters, 8pk of #2 pencils, and 100pk 3×5 index cards.

      • Guest

        I am from Easley and what you listed was our ad for this week ending today. The one Jenny listed starts tomorrow. Thanks.

        • Tonya

          You are right, my mistake, I clicked on an email they sent me and assumed that was the one but I went back and looked and there is a small box to click on for the next weeks add and it only takes you there if you specifically click on that spot.  sorry about that.  I'm glad because I really wanted to pick up a few of those things!!

      • Tracey

        Your $.10 deals in SC are $.01 in my area of Raleigh, NC with a $5 purchase.

        • Tfrost

          Me too..in Alexandria VA.  We have 1cent deals on Sharpie HIghlighters, #2 pencils, and index cards.

      • Sandraslowinski

        What are the limits on those??

    • Careyth

      There is also in my area Staples copy paper box of 10 reams for $35.99- $26.00 staples reward= $9.99. To make it even better I plan on using my $10 off $50(got in the mail) for Office Depot which will make it free. I plan on adding the paper and pen deal to it to get it to the $50. So I'll get the two reams of paper which will be .50 after rebate and markers free after rebates then of course the penny deals. So I'll get 12 reams of paper, and a pack of pens for $1 and the penny deals.

    • Dfordfss

      How does easy rebates work at Staples?

      • Alicia

        You can go online and enter in the rebate numbers on your receipt and they will mail you a check for the rebate amount.  They say 4-6 weeks, but most of the time it's 2-3 weeks for me.

      • Angelascoupons1

        They are VERY easy!  Do it online and you will have your rebate in no time.  I really like doing Staples rebates!

      • Erin

        My rebates here lately (reams of paper and packs of pens) won't go through online.  It tells me “Sorry! This product is not eligible for online submission.”  I'm still going to fill out the rebate form but not sure why it won't accept them.

        • Erin

          I guess the packs of paper and Zerbra/Pental RSVP pens are not “easy rebates”.  Just read on their website that it has to be marked with an “easy rebate” logo in order for it to be eligible to submit online.  Bummer!  It's just paper and pens not software or something more complicated!

        • Jdc241

          I had this happen too……..when you enter the rebate offer number online, you have to include the dash for example 11-23898…….

    • Tsizemore2

      Regarding the $5/$25 coupon – Can you use this along with sale items and items that have coupon matches?

    • Bluebonnets7

      ok…a little help here.  What page did you find the $5/$25 coupon on in the flier?

    • Sandraslowinski

      Can I use the 20% off coupon and the $5/$25 off coupon on the same transaction??

      • Sillysnicks

        Sorry this is late but I was able to use both coupons today.  I asked before I checked out and the cashier said yes!

    • Firstbrownie

      Ok, it has been a while since I did rebates with Staples. Is there a difference between Staples Rewards and easy rebates?  I purchased two boxes of paper from them last spring and received a check in the mail for the rebate (was that easy rebates?). However, when I go online and read about the Staples Rewards, it seems to be a credit to be used in-store or online. Just trying to figure things out. I really don't want credit for Staples. Thanks for any help!

      • Mandy

        Yes, they are different. Easy Rebates are rebates you fill out online or via mail and you receive a check or a visa gift card for the rebate amount. Sounds ike waht you did with the paper. Staples Rewards are more like a loyalty program where once a quarter you receive a voucher, either in the mail or online to spend at Staples. Staples Rewards have some restrictions – the most important one being that you can't earn Staples Rewards on an item you have purchased using Staples Rewards.

    • Lisa

      O.K. This is the second week this has happened – I live in Orlando Florida and the penny items at Staples THIS week are the ones Jenny posted LAST week. So this week I have the 1 cent index cards, pencils and highlighters. I just checked my Sunday morning paper. So for Central Florida it looks like we are one week behind Georgia. In a way, this makes sense, my daughter teaches school in Georgia and their school year starts a week before Florida schools. Last week I was confused because this site is usually so perfect. Staples promo's are now REGIONAL. (At least the back to school) Thanks, Jenny for all your hard work. This site makes it so easy to plan!

      • April

        That makes sense. Now I can plan ahead for next week. :)

      • Tfrost

        I found the same thing here in Virginia.  We are a week behind it looks like.  Makes for easy planning though!  We know what's coming up…lol.

      • Jessica Montigny-mullen

        same in greenville NC. it's my favorite week!!!! (i'm a math teacher)

    • Kingfishracin

      Staples has the Brother HL-2270DW laser printer on sale for $99.98. Use the 20% off coupon here to make it $79.98.  http://reg.e.staples.com/c/s/tagfrm/hBOJnz1B7SHGCB8ca0ODh7JhSUo/coupon.html?n=552

    • Kingfishracin

      Staples has the Brother HL-2270DW laser printer on sale for $99.98. Use the 20% off coupon to make it $79.98. Sale is good through 7/30. This printer is regularly $150.00 and this is as cheap as I have ever seen it.

      • PaulaC

        I bought this printer this morning.  So excited!  I've been waiting for a good deal ever since Jenny wrote about it back in May.

      • Where did you get the 20% off coupon?

        • Cestrick

          $5 off of $25 at staples.com

        • Kingfishracin

          I would put the link up here but it won't let me. I just searched for “Staples Coupons” after i saw the printer was on sale. The coupon code number is 81984. Add that to your search.

      • Sillysnicks

        I buy my toner on Ebay…don't know if you priced the toner in the store, I almost fainted.  You can get toner for almost 1/3 the cost for the same quality.  :+) Also, put black electrical tape over the sensor “eye” so you can get as many copies as possible from the toner.  If not, you will have lots of toner left but not be able to use it.

    • Reneern

      I love it!  I plan to get 10 2-fold folders; 1 pk z-grip pens, 2 pkgs staples paper; 2pkgs staples eraser caps: Will spend 16.30 and get 16 back in easy rebates!  yay!

    • Cestrick

      Just got back from Staples.  I bought $35 worth of school supplies.  After rebates, instant savings, and the $5 coupon, I only spent $10!  AND I will get 10% of the $35 back on my Staples reward card, so I am down to $6.50!  If you don't need the paper or pens, you can always donate them to your local school.

    • Jessica Montigny-mullen

      check your local staples because our penny deals were different- pencils, highlighters, and index cards- in greenville nc. also, a different kind of pen for the rebate and we still have paper with a rebate making it 50 cents!

    • EM

      OK.  Here's a head scratcher for you…Greensboro, NC stores run one Staples ad and Winston-Salem, NC stores run another.  The two cities are less than 20 miles apart and both considered part of the Triad (and schools will start at the same time).

      If only I can make it to one of each this week!

    • Jimannwalters

      Does any know the rebate offer # for the zebra z-grips pens for this week?  My number is smugged.

      • Moltjenb

        Did anyone ever find out the number for the zebra z-grips? My rebate offer # was torn off.  I  tried searching the site and no luck.
