      I did this deal this afternoon. I also found a 20% off “office or school supplies” coupon in the flyer that was emailed to me by Staples. Had some rewards from previous deals to pay for all my stuff so I spent $4.67 OOP and will get back $19.98 in rewards and $10.98 in rebates! Thanks!!

    • Benjamin

      Can this deal be done online?

    • Mandie

      I did the battery deal last nov. or dec. and never recieved my rewards? anyone know why? tia

      • Stefanie

        That happened to me too. I called them after a month and told them I never got it. They told me it was sent but was never used so they issued another one. After weeks, I still haven't gotten the newly issued rebate so I called them again. Finally after 3 months I got my rebate. It is never too late if you would like to call them. They have records of your previous order so they would know.

          Wow!! The exact same thing happen to me. I mean everything you described. That's a little fishy!! I wonder if they kinda wait until you call to send the rewards. Things that make you say Hmmm…

    • Jennifer

      I don't trust their rewards. I still haven't gotten my rewards for my recycled ink that I turned in the beginning of March!

      • Amy B.

        Their customer service is great… just send them an email or give them a call and they should be able to get it resolved for you.

        • Jennifer

          Thanks I haven't gotten around to it yet…I keep forget lol. Thanks for reminding me!

      • ASmith

        I would follow up the last two months I have had to call and get them to resend my ink rewards. Each time they said it was sent but I never received the email and on the phone they resent and showed up in my inbox immediately.

      • Amber

        I was told the store credit for recyled ink was $3 per cartridge (limit of 10 cartridges per month), and that they would send out the store credit QUARTERLY.

    • I think they will not send a reward until you have at least $10 worth of rewards, it will roll over on a monthly basis for each quarter. I think these new deals will allow you to get up to the $10 mark for rewards.

      • Jennifer

        Yeah I turned in like 6 cartridges and I should get at least 15 dollars back.

        • crystal

          On recycling ink cartridges….you get staples coupon money with an expiration date. They send these out every other month….They changed the program this year…..

      • Bee

        I used a Staples Reward check that was worth only $1.20 so they must send it out no matter what….BEE

      What exactly is the easy rebate? Does it come as a check or what?

      • Amber

        Easy saver rebates comes back as a check or visa gift card. Rewards come back as a store credit with an expiration date.

    • Falyn

      I went to Staples today to get the copy paper and the sign posted in the store had a different deal on it. The paper was $5.99 and the easy reabate was $5.49, making the ream of paper $.50. The $5.49 rebate comes in the form of a check for you to cash, and not as a coupon.

    • farcoup

      I did the paper deal about 2 weeks ago. Is this a new rebate?

    • meldeb3k

      Aren't the Staples Reward checks in the form of money that can only be used at Staples? And also, don't they have an expiration date? That is what I heard. Thanks.

      • marysc

        No, Staples rewards are checks just like Rite Aid's SCRs. BUT the batteries are part of Staples rewards which does give a store certificate.

        • Amy B.

          Staples EASY REBATES are checks or sometimes prepaid visa cards. REWARDS are a store certificate…. just for clarification :)

    • Tanya

      what does man Q stand for?

      • Amber

        manufacturer coupon

      • Jesskids

        Manufacturer's Coupon. :)

    • sheila

      I have never received the Staples rewards for ink or otherwise. So they will send me the rewards in the mail?

    • CPancake

      Question from a newbie…if I use a $1 off coupon on the batteries, do I still get the $9.99 reward?

      • Amy B.


      • talljennr

        I just realized that the reward is minus any coupons. I just got my reward for $5.20 because I used a reward coupon to pay for part of the purchase.

        • Christie Pancake

          I got my reward in the mail the other day and it was for the full amount. I wonder if using a manufacturer's coupon is considered different than using rewards to pay. ???

    • meldeb3k

      Does anyone know how long the rebate certificates last? I know there is an expiration date, just like the Register Rewards from Walgreens….. It wouldn't pay me to buy if it wasn't a decent time period to use the certificate because I don't have an office and am not a teacher; there's just so many reams of paper, pencils and pens a person can use! :)

    • the leonards

      I did the easy rebate a few weeks ago, and i received a Staples gift card in the mail…is this something new?

    • irmolees

      Does anyone know how many you can do? Last winter I did 4 .. limit 2 per purchase .. so I got back $50 in rewards I used to buy ink! wonder if there is a limit .. like the paper is limit 2 per household! Anyone know??

    • talljennr

      I got my rewards check today, but am I unhappy! I only got a check for $5.20 because I used a previous rewards check to pay for part of my transaction. After contacting customer service they told me that the rewards is minus any coupons. What gets me is that if I would have bought the batteries in a separate transaction I would have gotten my full reward. My biggest complaint with all rewards programs is the fine print. I end up spending so much time trying to figure out and resolve issues that come up. Anyhow I am just going to return the batteries for a full refund. I only wanted them cause they were suppose to be “free”.
