      The “$1 off 3M Scotch Magic tape” printable coupon is no longer available.  Looks like they removed it from the PDF.

      • Spiksha

        I did not see the coupon either, it has been gone for a couple of weeks.

      • Sbrown1137

        I just checked and the coupon is there, in PDF format.

        • Guest

          There is poster tape but not scotch magic tape…they wont let  you use the poster tape on this tape…I printed it out by accident and they said it is different…the poster tape is a lot more expensive……

    • bethcody

      I don't have a Staples near me, however, i noticed that the Bic retractable pens were on sale for .50. If you got the 7/31 Sun. paper ( I think that's  the one) it had a coupon for Bic stationery products at buy 2 save a 1.00. They will be free!

      • Ladybugpam

        and what about adding the B2G1 on Bic pens to that deal???  also loving the labels for education send in for 25 free points that came w/the bic q:)

    • Guest

      Does anyone know about the Staples coupon policy? I have 10 Bic $1/2 coupons. Can I get 20 of the $.50 pens for free. Will they allow that many coupons?

    • Didi

      Do they have a limit on how many you can buy of a sale item?  Loving the filler paper!

      • SugarBooBear

        If you go to the website you can look at the ad and it will tell you what the limit is.  The filler paper is limited to 5.

      • Lawconstruct

        But if you are a teacher they let you get 25, and you can go back each day of the sale!

    • DonnaChas

      Does anyone know if Staples would take the Food Lion coupon $2/2 Clorox Disinfecting Wipes?  (no size is listed)

    • addiemosqueda

      Does any one know if  staples take walgreens coupons?

    • Djane

      There is a Bic $1/2 Stataionary Product from SS 7/31 which would make the pens free

    • Iluvthesun1229

      im confused, because when i pull the ad up online, these are NOT the sales i'm seeing. I am in central Florida, Winter Haven……..

      • Weezie2211

        Check the dates online…They may not update until tomorrow.

      • I am in Orlando, and the ad on their website is the ad that ends tonight. Jenny is probably on their email list and gets the ad a little early.

    • Stephanie Sims

      I have never used coupons at Staples, but I have the $1.00 Scotch tape coupon. Will the overage be applied to other items or will they reduce the amount of the coupon? I don't see a coupon policy on their website. My husband and I are both teachers and I really like the idea of using the overage to buy other school supplies!!

      • Lea

        You could price match at Walmart

    • Ctrinkle

      I was in a Charlotte store last week and the clerk confirmed that the North Carolina stores have a different ad than the South Carolina ad.  We are a week behind in North Carolina because our schools start later than SC- so you really have to check your local staples ad or head across the border.

      • Ctrinkle

        Sorry about the typo.

    • Weezie2211

      FL TAX FREE…I went to Staples tonight.  Got home and checked my receipt and had tax charged for school supplies.  After a phone call to the store the manager told me to bring in my receipt tomorrow and he would refund me.

      So, please check your receipts before you leave!

      • bethcody

        Our tax free weekend was last week. However in La, it was tax only on sales tax. Still had to pay state tax. Still was only 4% instead of 8%.

      • Lyndacoupon

        I saw that too when I bought a pencil box, was told it was not tax free. How “Back to School” can you get? I would complain on the principal, but it's only 4 cents and not worth the effort of driving back. Thanks for letting me vent here. I feel better now!

    • I didn't get to my Staples in time to get the printer/copy paper, but I am glad to see that it is on sale again in the next cycle!

    • MBschwartz

      Does Staples accept manufacturer coupons??? I didn't think they did…

      • Acdeb5


      • Danielle

        mine does in chattanooga, tn.

    • Missy

      Staples in metro Atlanta DON'T accept manufacturer q's.

      • AvidSaver

        I used a manufacturer's coupon at a metro Atlanta Staples last weekend with no problem. I asked the cashier first and she said yes, they do take them. It was a $1 coupie for paper towels. Perhaps the cashier wasn't aware of the policy?

      • Diane

        mine in alpharetta does.

      • calico

        Every Staples is set up to accept manufacturer coupons….I would have asked to spoke to the manager.

    • Savmartz

      Thanks for the heads up, this ad is not for North Carolina.

    • SugarBooBear

      Just thought I would let everyone now the filler paper for 0.01 you have to buy $5 worth of things to get that deal.  Got my 4 scotch tape and 300 labels paid 0.18 for everything.  Pretty good!!

    • StephenWarner

      I just got an iPad2-32GB for $ 24.53 and my girlfriend loves her Dell laptop that we got for $ 35.46 there arriving tomorrow by UPS I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 42 inch LED TV to my boss for $ 655 which only cost me $ 61.79 to buy.Here is the website we use to get it all from, Grab Penny.com

    • Leo246

      Staples in Tampa, Bruce B. Downs, has spiral notebooks for 1cent.  I did not see the filler paper.

    • Frances

      Don't see the $1 Scotch magic tape anymore.  Is there another link?

    • Couponmama49

      Where is the scotch magic tape Q???  It pulled up other coupons…. guess they're all gone.

    • RJ

      does anyone have suggestions on quality bookbags for a reasonable price?

      • Beepampered

        After Jenny’s posting a few weeks back, I got a LL Bean back pack for $19 and two lunch bags for $9 each. These are not the best deals out there, but they are about the price of a cheap, ugly backpack from Target and a way better quality. And if I get two years out of the lunch bags, I’d be thrilled since any other one I’ve used has only lasted a year. Also, buying a used backpack is not the end of the world. Look on Craig’s List or post a Wanted on Freecycle. People (me included) often get rid of bags long before they are worn out. (After two consignment sale bags, my daughter convinced me to buy her a new one).

    • Jo

      Where in the ad is the tape for $.50? I can't find it in the weekly flyer.
