      The filler paper also includes the graph paper (little squares) according to their online ad.

      Teachers…you can get more than the posted limits, ask the cashier.  Usually, you can get 25.

      • CP

        No longer at our local Staples :(  All three locations have stopped offering the extra limit for teachers due to abuse… one cashier explained to me that ‘a small group’ of teachers would come in daily during the sale and clean them out of the 1¢ or 25¢ items…then get irate and call corporate when they refused to issue rain checks.  It’s too bad…

      • Elena336

        Staples’ new policy for teachers is that you must have a Teacher’s Rewards card first. Then you can buy the 25 items but you have to pay regular price for the ones that are over the in-store limit. You will then be reimbursed the total through your Staples Rewards. Or at least that’s how it was explained to me.

      Had the best trip today. I paid $7.58 for 2 bags of supplies. I loved the fact that my Staples had everything in stock, and the cashiers took all my coupons, even the ones that gave overage. I used $1/3 rose art coupons on pencils ($1 each), $1/2 BIC items, and $1/1 frixion highlighters. Very happy!

      • Banks Ash21

        I went today and the cashier refused my BIC coupon!! I was very UNhappy LOL

        • stribisblessed

          I used mine and price matched at Walmart (Walgreen’s Bic pens – lots of colors) and White Out (Staples) to get each free.

        • Lucy2778

          I thought that they would refuse them too, but tried anyway. It was pretty crowded, and the cashier was nice, and my two kids were all over the place lol. I was told that next time they will only accept one identical coupon (I used two BICs and frixion), but this time they would make an exception. The manager was right next to the cashier and had to override the coupons because none were being accepted. I wouldn’t bother with the manager but she was right there and helped the cashier so it wasn’t a big deal. This trip made my day, and kids were so happy! Anything to encourage them to study :)

          • Banks Ash21

            Yeah I was there for over 2 hours and as much as it irritated me I was not going to push the issue. My trip was still a great deal just kind of a downer when you have used them before, spent time couponing and the cashier tells you that you cant use coupons on sale items LOL

    • Does anyone know if the office stores like staples, office depot etc. price match? Some of them have great prices, but I don’t want to run around town. Thanks!

    • Kylee

      I didn’t know until my last visit that Staples does a reward card that gives you 5% off your purchase!
