Most know not to go anywhere near the QB rebate, and Staples keeps inching up the price on the paper, so... meh.  Thanks for posting.

I have to say, I did the Quikbooks at Black Friday and had ZERO issues, followed everything to the letter, it got approved w/o any hassles, even had my check in about 6 weeks versus the sometimes 10-12 forever wait.

So I might bite again if I can turn it into a MM, plus it is $90ish towards Premier spend which is helpful to me as well.

I haven't had any issues w/ QB rebates either and combined w/ the week of 3/2's 15% off one item coupon it becomes a MM. 
OTH, if one doesn't need to spend towards Premier its not worth the hassle.

  It could be a good thing.  Staples stated competition from Amazon and WalMart as reasons for driving down their numbers.  More sales could be a way to bring back the customers, which would benefit all of us.

My Staples retailer has made a few changes that are impacting our relationship to the point that I am looking for something else to spend my Discover Cash Back on. Changes to the ink and rewards programs have caused me to buy ink less often at Staples, to delay each purchase to 210 days, and to buy less ink at each purchase. This has me in the store less often making less impulse purchases. Only allowing five gift cards on a purchase has caused me to shop for computers elsewhere and has me rethinking my discover Cash Back options.

Another consequence of these changes is that I did not visit Staples on Black Friday. In fact, I only made two small purchases there in November and December.

When you couple these changes with the fact that my oldest graduates college next year, it's easy to see why my Staples might be on the list.

I did the QuickBooks rebate on Black Friday and it got rejected because they copied the date wrong off the receipt (or so they claimed when I called them.) However, they did validate it once I called them.

Hmmm... the 15% coupon makes it slightly more compelling.  Is the possibility of jumping through flaming hoops and waiting 4+ months for payout worth the $10 or so net after taxes???  ... now that I'm typing it out, no... not for me.  But the MM opportunity is definitely there, and if you run into rebate issues, you can invoke Intuit's money back guarantee (though you'll eat the tax, and you'll eat the coupon if your receipt shows the discount-- hint... buy at kiosk and pay at register.  Only the register receipt will reflect coupon.

  Hmm...using the 15% on QB is a guaranteed problem getting your rebate. Check the old QB FAR threads % or $ off coupons showing on the QB line item on your receipt s a definite NoNo in the past.

  Buying at the kiosk and paying in-store should eliminate the $ off coupon problem since it's categorized as a Staples.com purchase.

and of course a $10/$50 makes it a $23 MM

my4mainecoons said:   and of course a $10/$50 makes it a $23 MM
  
Now it's starting to sound worthwhile.  Maybe just go straight for the money back guarantee and not consider submitting the rebate.  I invoked the money back guarantee on one product and had an Intuit-branded check in hand in less than a week (I had to ship the product to them, but that's $2.xx via First Class).

So If we do the money back guarantee way then if  we order by kiosk, pay in store with 15% and 10/50 it should be a $18 MM (after tax for me)?  If it is easy to get a $90 check in hand in short amount of time then it is work it I suppose.

Less taxes, less return shipping cost, and as always... YMMV... but, yes, that has been my experience.

You got return shipping with a tracking # for $2, what method did you use,when I've returned with a tracking # using the PO's cheapest option it's usually approx. $5?

tracking is free is you print out first class label from home with their software.

Off topic, but Staples will be shrinking, closing 12% of its North America locations.

I already stated $2.xx via First Class... USPS electronic rate for 4 oz is $2.01, 5 oz is $2.09, and 6 oz is $2.25, all of which also include Delivery Confirmation.  I'm sure the software weighs AT MOST 6oz... and probably less.  It doesn't need to be be boxed... it comes in its own box.  Tape it shut on both ends and stick a label on it.  Done.
 

I just weighed one for you.  3.2 oz.

  Some eBay sellers get great USPS rates, even for a non eBay sale to use eBay shipping there is a workaround to use it.

Thanks for the ad. Unfortunately Staples is killing itself in competition. Last week, Norton Internet Security 2014 3 user 1 year was listed at $79.99 at Staples. On the other hand Amazon was selling it for $19.99

  I have to agree, I subscribed to "Staples" updates from FW, and I have grown weary of the endless "look at the inane deal in this week's ad" for any item that is on the front page... to up their post count (or are Staples employees).

You certainly could have PM'd to AMZN price. Or... waited until it was FAR.

I see QuickBooks Pro as 179 in the Ad. Where do you see free after 80 rebate?
NM....Its online edition..bummer.

not only that but there's a huge difference between QB Simple Start and QB Pro.

Yeah, with SS they're charging for something that should be free (software that accesses their website)... because they hit you with recurring monthly subscription charges to access and manipulate your own data (on their site) after an intro period (a year?  a few months??).

  Just to clarify,you go to the PO, return it exactly as purchased, just taping both ends,select first class delivery,which will only cost $2 and include delivery confirmation?

1brooklyn1 said:   Just to clarify,you go to the PO, return it exactly as purchased, just taping both ends,select first class delivery,which will only cost $2 and include delivery confirmation?
No.  You generate the label on your computer, print label at home.  Cheaper rate than going to the post office.  First Class Parcel includes delivery confirmation.
I pay $2.42 to ship 4 oz packages.  If I were a bigger eBayer (like yesidonoitall) it would be even cheaper.

(OT: Paypal seems to be having issues today.)

Read QB's "unconditional 60-day money back guarantee" and return process here-- http://support.quickbooks.intuit.com/support/articles/INF12725

And then, stick a copy of your invoice (the kiosk one is better if you used coupons at the register) in the box, slap some tape on both ends, print out electronic rate postage to the tune of $2.01 (at 3.2 oz per my4mainecoons' measurement), which includes FREE Delivery Confirmation, and stick in the mailbox.  Refund check from Intuit should arrive pretty quickly (at least that has been my experience).

I have been trying to send money to a fellow FW'er for a couple of days without success.

 

I presume you can only claim the "unconditional 60-day money back guarantee" once. 
(Why would you buy it again if you were dissatisfied?)

my4mainecoons said:   I presume you can only claim the "unconditional 60-day money back guarantee" once.

Quite possible, but one could certainly argue that 'limit one per customer' would represent a condition on their "unconditional" guarantee.

For a non-eBay seller such as myself, what software or website do I use to generate these postage labels?

This has nothing to do with eBay. Log into Paypal, on the right side of the main screen, click "Multi-order shipping." If you don't see it, switch to classic view in your account settings.


  

It's showing $49.99, order in the next few minutes before this system updates, turning it into a $40 mm HURRY.

  Nice find! Download and Mac versions are $50, boxed is $90. Deal may work on the east coast but they could cancel your order.
