Note that while the ad shows a single SKU for the Crayola markers, the wording says it's valid on both and one per SKU, so you can get both (as was the case last time).

Excellent time to convert those Staples Visa Rebate store cards. They are problematic when trying to use on phone orders. Only net $7 after two transaction fees (200 and 100 card) but lighten my wallet of all those plastic cards being stored. Oh and yeah net $7 is still $7 in my wallet!
Thanks for the heads up!

Last week I tried using my SER Visa cards to buy the $300 Visa but the register wouldnt accept it (was hoping to unwind a few of them). Manager came in and called the number on the back and manually processed one card and said I cannot buy Visa GC with the SER cards. I had to use my regular CC to pay for the rest. Is this the norm or was something unusual going on?
I am hoping the $300 Visa will be accepted for buying the $300 MC.

Something unusual was going on.  I've used > 20 Staples visa rebate gift cards to buy the MC and VC gc in the past few weeks.  Have used 10 for a single $300 purchase.
No issues at all.
Maybe cashier didn't know how to enter them?  I tell cashier how much is on each card as I hand it to them.  They have to key the amount in.

  Same issue.  System wouldn't take the prepaid/rebate visa card.

About 50% of the cashiers and managers I run into don't know to put in the value of the card before swiping it. If they fail to do the preauthorization step, the computer will attempt to authorize the card at the full amount due (it has no idea how much money is actually on the card) and decline it.

Cashiers are rarely if ever trained on how to process this.

Squinky is right, the system is trying to charge the full balance to say, a $50 Visa Rebate card, It gets declined, cause the card can not cover the full amount. You MUST FIRST tell the cashier you are doing "split payments" and specify the amounts on each card you want them to put into the system. If you put $50 against a $50 card, you will be fine. Remember DO CREDIT and NOT DEBIT even though some say "DEBIT" on the front of the card.

I understand the part about the prepaid card balance being less than the purchase amount. I did not tell the cashier initially but once it was declined, let him know. However, I doubt if the cashier did anything about it. I have had no such problem doing a regular (non GC) purchase with the a prepaid card where the card balance is less than the full purchase amount. The system has always charged the prepaid card in full and then prompts for the balance.

rated:
MC, Squinky and the guy with all them coons are correct. For these gift card deals, the cashier needs to plug in the amount for each card if there is less on the card than the amount due. I've had the same issue at stores other than Staples when trying to use the cards. "I'm sorry sir, your card has been declined and is requesting alternate method of payment"
Using the card at Staples for ordinary purchases isn't an issue in this regard though since it will take whatever is on the card and then advise you of the balance due.
I wonder how many people who have been told that the "card has been declined" assume that they've used the card up and simply pitch it in the trash... easy buck made for the East Rebate system. There oughta be a law!

I agree that you should not need to have the cashier enter the amount left on the card before putting the charge thru, the system should allow the amount left on the card to work and tell you what you owe. In your case, did you check the card activity on the SER website when you got home to see what why it was declined?

The Staples POS system actually does do this, but it requires some magic button.  I had a lengthy discussion with my coupon-friendly GM about this only a couple of weeks ago.  He asked why I never burn the SER prepaids as payment in store.  I told him it was because it's always such a hassle to make sure the face value is keyed in in advance.  He said it isn't required, and proceeded to show me exactly that.  I was buying something > $32, and so I gave him one of the $32 SER prepaids, and he just swiped it in after clicking a single button (which was definitely NOT entering in the $32 value).  It worked fine, and the register sat waiting for me to tender the remaining balance.  Of course, he made very clear that this only works at Staples (of course... and we all know the problem with swiping elsewhere without defining the face value up front).  I was pleasantly surprised... but this clearly means that the prepaid cc's are somehow tied into the Staples system.

 I believe it will work the same way on any prepaid card.  The POS system doesn't know an SER prepaid from any other one.

BTW, the POS system at World Market also works this way, and I have found it to be a good place to use up a bunch of low balance prepaids.

  Good question. I am unable to locate the card now. I usually take the card back from the cashier (even if it is fully exhausted of funds) but I dont remember explicitly if the cashier/manager took it.

Yes, it's just turned into a great week at Staples. I posted the 25% Rewards in a new thread

Exclusions are the usual ones but paper is not one of them Since the half case is a limit of 4, you can do 2 transactions of 2 and use a 10/50 for each to make them better than free to begin with, and then 25% back on top of that. Probably pays to buy the reams as well with the 25% back.

This may be a no no to ask, but where can we generate 10/50s? Only eBay? Also, I read something about accounts getting blacklisted if you use multiple 10/50s that have similar codes in the same week. Guidance?

so, this scenario is possible?

1 think crayola marker
1 20% off coupon
4 reams
4 coupons for reasm
4 5 packs
4 coupons for $2AC/EZR for 5pks
1 25% rewards coupon
+ any rewards for conversion to $$?

(no 10/50 here for me, so i don't take the coupon into account)

would a person be able to use rewards and use the coupon for 25% back in rewards on the same transaction and get a good amount? (i forgot how they calculate the rewards after the rewards coupons)

Hi Viv,

If your net total after all the coupons is say $100 and you use a $40 ink recycle rewards check against that, you'll earn 25% back on $60, not $100.

Two questions:

1) Where did you get 10/50 coupon? Is it the newsletter sign-up? I only had a 10/75 in my coupon wallet.

2) I purchased an item online yesterday using the remainder of my Staple Rewards (this is when they print you out a coupon on the receipt with the leftover rewards.) If I return the item, will I get the Staple Rewards amount returned or will I lose it?

I figured out how they get damaged reams... I received my 2x reams from this online only deal  today.  Next time, they ought to just throw the reams out of an airplane so they won't be so ravaged.

  
I also figured out why they're hemorrhaging money.  I chatted with them about the paper damage and they insisted on me returning it.  So, they paid $x.xx to send me the paper, then they're going to pay $x.xx to pick it up, all so they can throw it away because it's unusable through any printer device because of the huge kinks across the pages.  I suggested they refund me and I just throw the paper away but CSR wasn't having any of that logic.  I guess she didn't get that I was already going to get the paper FAR, and that all a refund would do is accelerate my money back since it would kill the rebate submission.  Obviously too confusing for her.

 

I think you will lose the rebate once item is returned. Best to buy new paper in store and return the damaged paper. You keep good paper, good rebate and sell or use as you need.
UPDATE:
I opened my UPS delivered paper today and while it wasn't damaged, the wrapper is not the same as the individual reams sold in store...
A considerate store manager might hear your plight and comp you a few reams in exchange. Worth a shot.
