Even with their 6% and Paypal fees
There is the PayPal 1.5% kickback on my purchases.
Always free s/h to the 48 states with USPS offered for $16 and to any location with a US zip code
Usually rewards checks are $300 or more  plus $40 for ink
One advantage over other sellers is no sales tax here.

What's the 1.5%? Also, you're buying and re-shipping? If you were drop shipping then you'd be paying destination sales tax.

  The PP debit Mastercard gives 1.5% back for orginal customers, now it is 1% for newbies for years now.
No drop ship..
No sales tax ever.

Re: 20

am premier. I went to recycle my 20 inks today and the cashier asked me "am I a business"? I said no. she said I could only recycle 10 inks. I told her its 20. she took my 20, but said I will only get credit for 10.

  Of course you are a business
if need be...  wink wink

Question on qualifying purchase of $30 out of pocket on ink at Stapless .

If I purchase ink worth $50 and then another item worth $25 or more in the same transaction and then use $25 coupon will I meet the minimum requirements ?  (as long as I am paying the balance with a credit card, gift card).    Thanks !

Staples coupons/rewards used in the transaction get prorated across all items evenly on rewards website -- add up your total purchase and amount of coupons/rewards used to find the total discount rate

$50 ink + $25 item = $75 purchase total
$25 coupons/rewards used on that $75 purchase is $25/$75 = 33.33% total discount
$50 ink - 33.33% discount = $33.33 counted towards ink purchase requirement

$50 ink + $30 item = $80
25/80 = 0.3125 discount
1 - 0.3125 = 0.6875 amount paid
$50 x 0.6875 = $34.38 counted towards ink purchase requirement

I am premier and received my ink rewards today for ink that I recycled in May. The expiration date is July 2015. I have always had several months to accumulate rewards to get something decent. Was there a recent policy change on the expiration date of ink rewards?

A not so recent change. Rewards, regardless of type or status, "expire the last day of the month following the month of issuance, at the end of the day EST".

I really need to update this primer/faq ...

Recent??? It started last September.

They have been manually issuing my ink rewards, and those had longer expiration dates. Now that I got a system generated rewards, it expires next month.

why were they issuing your rewards manually? were you doing the recycle by mail thing?

  Because I purchased toner that cost $30.00 exactly, and recycled 20 ink cartridges. The $0.20 that Staples rings up, then credits, deducted from my $30.00 toner purchase. So, they were saying that I was $0.20 short in meeting the minimum spending to recycle.

I know that you can't earn points or rewards for buying U.S. postage stamps, but can you use existing ink recycling rewards to buy postage stamps?

rated:
I haven't tried it but I presume "no" since Rewards are considered a coupon not a form of payment and coupons are never accepted to discount postage stamps.

Never tried at Staples. For OD/OM, it's allowed by the cash register system but I was once denied by a cashier.

  Correct. Of course dot com is subject to a $50 minimum and generally a $1 service charge.

Anybody having trouble with accessing the Staples rewards part of the Staples.com website? It seemed to go down last week, then it was back up briefly but with the incorrect ink recycling date, now it bounces me back to the signup screen. Yes, I've signed in and out and so far, nada.

  I'm able to get in fine and see info updated as of August 01, 2015.  The "eligible to earn ink rewards until" date is the same that I've been seeing since the last time I purchased ink.  Try clearing your cookies or use a different browser.

I'm missing the Staples $30 purchase requirement by about $2. Does anyone know if the following $2.99 item counts?

Once again, I go to recycle my 20 (premiere) ink carts. The cashier tells me, you are only allowed 10, the other 10 you will not get credit for.
I told her, Incorrect. I am allowed 20,she says oh yeah, you are right.
one day, I would like to bring in carts that are all leaking, so when they go to count them, SURPRISE!!!

you mean we don't have to count them???
