no link?

they did this last year. It was a good deal.

Anything else?

Or how about an ad scan if possible.

Will put the ad soon(2-3 Hours)

I got one last year. I got a $80+ backpack free.

Hey man, not bad for a first post.

Worked like a charm last year. Nice heads-up OP.

Ok, so I went to the eBay item (item 180490248160) at the bottom of the orig post out of curiosity. I don't get it- Why would I buy a $500 gift card for >$600?

Hope my Staples will have some decent backpacks next week

I'm wondering whether using a coupon or ink rewards will reduce the rebate amount?

Nah. I'd wait for OP to post scan.

Didn't we see otherwise with the latest round of FAR batteries?

good find op! great first post

You will receive gift card which does not have an expiring date. Thanks OP for the scan! Been waiting for this.

would a camera backpack qualify? like this

That was different. You can't roll over reward checks. But it seems OK with easy rebate items.

sweet, valid instore, by phone, or online. thanks OP!

Thanks. loved it last time. picked up a swiss gear backpack.

Marked.

OfficeMax will also have a similar deal next week. I wonder what Office Depot will offer?

This time is for rebate, not for rewards. Good for using all the rewards on hand.

Deal was hot last year when they were giving Staples rewards, even hotter this year when you get a rebate (this means I can do the deal for every address I have available).

I wonder how they will handle this.

Will there be different rebate offer #'s for each and every backpack they sell? Because each backpack will have a different amount. If so, then using a coupon will not alter the rebate amount since the rebate amount will be predetermined and linked to the SKU scanned. Hope there's an OD $10 off coupon that I can use to at least cover my tax.

If it truly is an Easy Rebate, we **MIGHT** be able to switch the reward method during rebate submission to a check. Not positive on that though. Staples Gift Cards (as opposed to rewards) do not expire.

If we get gift cards, there will surely be enough opportunities to convert them into cash at a later date with FAR/AC offers.

If it

myeric said: This time is for rebate, not for rewards. Good for using all the rewards on hand.I remember all the folks who got burned around Christmas time when Staples changed the "rules".... i.e. the free battery rewards deal when they deducted any rewards checks used for the purchase. I wonder if / when they will also change the rebate payout system to operate the same way.

I got onto this last year and it worked like a charm. It was a great thing to use, thanks for the Head's up.

Not all SERs offer the opportunity to change the default payment option to check.

Especially with the new receipt system where the coupons are deducted from each item.

thanks OP! now I have a reason to step into the Staples store and recycle my ink.

Staples gift cards also has a negative in that it can only be used in -store, as when I attempted to do the gift card code by phone and online I wasn't allowed to.

I did last year. It is automatic - there is no paperwork or SER. Just scan your Staples reward card, and it comes as a reward check in October that you have like 30 days to spend. It took long long time to get it ( a few weeks after the end of the quater, which is 9/30) and very short time period to spend (like 30 days). So it is free, however not the kind of free you might think.

Thanks for the headsup

I was wondering if they'd do this again this year. Darn, I just spent out all my rewards last week cause the expd. at the end July.

Thank you.

rebate good on laptop bags?

c3 said: c3688t said: I wonder if / when they will also change the rebate payout system to operate the same way.Especially with the new receipt system where the coupons are deducted from each item.Good point. It's not like a fixed-amount rebate. If they use the coupon amount to reduce the price of the backpack on the receipt, then you will for sure be screwed out of getting the full price back.

Question: Staples has been using $off$$ coupons to reduce the price of the highest-priced item on the receipt by the coupon amount. Have they been doing the same trick with Staples Rewards? If so, then that makes those rewards worthless for this backpack deal.

Yes, I wish they would allow the gift cards for online transactions. I use a lot of gift cards, so when the item is online only I go to the store and order from the kiosk and then pay at the register with the gift cards.
