      Can someone please help me? I submitted a Staples easy rebate through paypal and got an email on Wed, Aug 8 saying it was on the way, but it’s not showing in pp yet. Is that normal? TIA!

      • jr

        hi..i have never had any problems ultimately receiving easy rebates from staples…i have been shopping with them for over a year and have always received them…they take a little while, but they always show up
        its interesting that you ask this though because i had the same email and thought it would show up in paypal already…it has not yet…
        i have confidence that it will…
        hang in there!
        great place to shop…love their prices..especially on the ream’s of paper…my goodness, we stock up for my husband’s small business at this time of year! so thankful!

        • Ab

           Thank you for the reply! I will wait a few more days then call them!

      Has anyone done the rebate for Quickbooks enhance payroll?   The rebate form printed from the purchase but the SKU’s listed on the form are different than that on the product. 

    • If your store is still open, you should check out the Zebra Medium Ballpoint Retractable pens that are free after rebate. The 7-pack is the sale item, but I found a BOGO pack for the same price. One of the employees told me it wouldn’t work, but when I checked out, I decided to see a different cashier and try it anyway. It worked. So, I am getting 14 pens for FREE! I tend to lose them at work, so these will last me a while. 

      If your store is still open or if you are not on eastern time, perhaps you can still score this deal.
