Here’s a pretty neat deal at StaplesPrint out your coupon for a free eco shopping bag.  What makes this a deal is that everything you can fit in the bag will be 15% off.

There are some exclusions, so check the fine print and make sure you ask questions on anything you are unsure about.  Coupon expires 11/23.

      BEWARE OF THE SMALL PRINT. If you use a Staples Reward or Ink Reward to pay toward your purchase , each Reward counts as a coupon toward the most expensive items in your purchase and therefore do NOT qualify for the  15% off. You cannot use a coupon or Staples Reward or Ink Reward toward an item if you want to get the 15% off and Yes they did attach the “coupons” to the most expensive items (ink). If you use a manu coupon on any item then you do not get the 15% off. I got .90 (ninety cents) off my $64. purchases this morning because I used Staples Rewards and Ink REwards toward the purchases.

         But it doesn’t say on the coupon that it can or can’t be combined with staples or ink rewards or any other type of coupon.  Wonder if it is up to each store how to do it.  Guess I’ll find out tomorrow :)

          The transaction reminded me of shopping at WAGS. You can use a coupon but you can only use the coupon -the 15% off will not work.  I bought 2 packages of ink and one package of paper. I used one Staples Reward, one Staples Ink reward, One $10 off $50 HP ink, and the 15% off. The 15% off only applied to the computer paper. I had the manager rering it. He read the 15% off coupon and explained why the 15% only applied to the paper. This was at Staples in Sumter, SC.

      Of course there is NOT a Staples around here… this would have been great for starting a binder finally!

      I’m liking the “one per customer per day” in the fine print!  I know where I’ll be headed Tues 22nd and Wed 23rd!

      can I just fill the bag with air and get the bag for free?

      I used my 15% coupon today and a $2 off ink rewards with no problem.  She rang up the 15% coupon fist and then my ink rewards and out the door I went with some supplies for my coupon binder, a new calendar for next year and some stocking stuffers for the kids that were on clearance :)
