Does triple recycling mean I can recycle 5 cartridges @ $6 plus 14 @ $2, or 5 @ 6 and 20@ $2 if I have premier?

I think it's 5 @ 6 and then the rest is normal (unless another promotion comes up later in the month)

You are limited to 20 cartridges recycled per month IN TOTAL if you are premier. Special promos do not add to the normal number you can recycle in a given month.

That's what I thought. Someone in the other thread made it seem like the 5 @ $6 is in addition to the monthly limit.

I asked this in the other thread but it got locked. Does anyone show as being Premier on staplesrewardscenter.com who clearly shouldnt be? I spent nowhere near 1k in 2012, and everything on the dashboard shows premier, including being able to recycle 20 carts. I assume its a glitch that will correct itself but curious if others see same thing.

I was wrong, it's not the HP generic promo that I was thinking of.

It's just 5x6 + 15x2.

Maybe you did spend enough? What does the chart/annual summary show? Are there other users on your account that might be helping you out? Maybe they decided to give it to you in good faith that you'll be compelled to spend more?

This is one glitch I would just leave alone and see if it corrects itself. They have yet to reset the spend levels for the new year so the entire process for a new year is not complete.

You are good through all of 2013. You need to spend $1k in 2013 to have premier status for 2014. Rinse, repeat for following years.

Should be til end of CY13. I spent ~400 dollars in CY12, so I dont know why I show premier. Would be nice if it sticks for some reason.

I was one of the ones who started 2012 as Premiere ( as I should have) but sometime around March or April got "downgraded" due to a system glitch. A quick phone call got it fixed easy enough.

Glad I'm not in your shoes....If I was showing Premeire but didn't deserve i'd be very tempted to take a screen shot for my files then run to store with 20 cartridges......

I am certain this has been covered elsewhere but Ill ask here because I cant find any specific info on this. Regarding the ink recycling program, what type of cartridge is cheapest to churn this? Or for that matter what carts are accepted thru this program? Im totally new to this but am expanding my interests in 2013 and appreciate any information folks want to provide. PM is fine if its not public info =)

Cheers

Basically the least expensive cart you can find.

Staples:
--- Each Member can recycle up to 10 cartridges per month of any used ink or toner cartridge sold at any retail store in the U.S., and receive $2 back in Recycling Rewards per cartridge.

And for good measure:

Office Depot:
--- Worklife Rewards® and Star Teacher Members get $2 back in Recycling Rewards for each cartridge recycled in-store, up to 10 per month ....
--- We reserve the right to decline acceptance of visibly damaged cartridges for recycling.

OfficeMax:
--- As a member of MaxPerks Rewards, simply bring in any visibly undamaged originally manufactured ink/toner cartridges to an OfficeMax retail store and earn a $2 reward per qualified cartridge, with a maximum reward of $20 per calendar month per member (or 10 cartridges per calendar month per member). Remanufactured ink/toner cartridges are not eligible for rewards under the recycling program.

For more information see the thread "ink/toner cartridge recycling primer/faq for Office Depot, OfficeMax and Staples" LINK

russ0519 said:   Does triple recycling mean I can recycle 5 cartridges @ $6 plus 14 @ $2, or 5 @ 6 and 20@ $2 if I have premier?Remember that the triple recycling is not as a good a deal as the double/double deal, which often follows the triple deal, especially if you are Premier. With this deal, you'll get $58 for recycling 20 cartridges (5x$6 + 14x$2). If you wait for the double/double deal, you'll get 20x$4 = $80, plus an extra $10 (or more) for the ink purchase. And if you do the triple deal, you can't do the double deal later in the month, unless you only recycle the allowed 5 cartridges. It could potentially be worth doing both deals in that case, I suppose.

So are you guys reselling the ink or keeping the ink? Unless I am missing something for non Premier customers it doesn't appear to be a money maker.

Since the limit is 5, there is no advantage for Premier customers.

But isn't the double/double and triple predicated on you buying HP ink? I don't have an HP printer so I've never looked too closely at these deals, but always felt like I was missing something?

Or resell it. Hell, you probably have to resell it anyhow, with the frequency the double/double deal comes up.

I already have too many printers. I bring home one more and my wife is gonna have me on that tv show Hoarders. I have thought about the resale route, but not being an HP guy I'm not sure what the more popular carts are, or what the going "street rates" are either. wasn't sure if there was enough profit to make it worth the trouble. Anyone care to share some tips

At the very least, you won't lose money and it will help with your premier purchases.

Do you need $50 worth of HP ink purchase for each? Or can one $50 purchase online cover both triple (5 cartridges) and double (15 cartridges) if it's within a week of both promotions?

But doing the triple and a double double -- presuming both are offered in the same month -- would require purchasing $50 or more in HP twice.

how to you get free ink for an HP printer? i need a new one,wireless.

CheapBustard said:   Do you need $50 worth of HP ink purchase for each? Or can one $50 purchase online cover both triple (5 cartridges) and double (15 cartridges) if it's within a week of both promotions?I haven't seen anyone report doing that, but I suppose if you knew from the upcoming ad that the double/double deal was the following week, you could do the triple deal online Thursday or Friday and go turn in 5 cartridges and then recycle the rest following week. That assumes that they run consecutive weeks.

sharpbead said:   how to you get free ink for an HP printer? i need a new one,wireless.You become premier and do the double double promos. It is not quite free but close. $4x20 carts plus 20% back on the ink. So, an extra $50+ in rewards when purchasing $50+ in ink. Your cost is whatever amount of ink is over $50.

ETA: You still have to monetize those extra ink/monthly rewards to actually make it close to free or use the rewards to buy something at Staples you were going to buy there anyway. It is not a slam dunk but close.

sharpbead said:   how to you get free ink for an HP printer? i need a new one,wireless.
Step 1: attain Staples Premier (requires $1000 or more in qualified purchases)
Step 2: During a Staples double/double deal, recycle 20 carts and purchase just over $50 in HP ink.

The deal: Generally, Staples pays $2 per cart (up to 10 standard or plus, up to 20 premier) and rewards members receive 10% back in rewards on the purchase of HP ink. During the double/double deals, Staples offers an extra $2 per cart and and extra 10% on HP ink when making a qualified recycle of carts and qualified purchase of $50 or more of HP ink.

The math:
--- Normal recycle
20 carts x $2/cart = $40
--- double/double
20 carts x $2/cart = $80
20% back on $50+ in HP ink = $10+ish
Total = $90+ish

Difference: $90+ish - $40 = $50+ish which more or less covers the $50+ for the HP ink making it effectively free.

Not a problem for me. Also gets you 1/10th the way to premier.

In the previous thread last year multiple people confirmed that this works

it sounds like the triple deal will be back for a second week http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/1249153/?fwcs=ta516768

maybe the double double will be last week of month

So for those getting rejected and/or no e-mail responses. Try calling during BUSINESS hours (before 5PM ET) to get the REWARDS CS line. After 5PM it goes to regular Staples CS, which can help, but they aren't aware of the issue. I have to call again tomorrow during the day...

That said, for THIS WEEK'S same promo on the Letter/Legal File boxes, the Advantus SKUs have been added to the promo according to the CSR so for those who are OCD like I am and like things the same, you can get the same Advantus boxes.

SKUS for this week:
