what a crock on the "double ink" promo. SPEND $75 on HP??? get double rewards on only 5????

why bother???

Because their research probably has told them that there are a lot of non-FWers out there who fall for it.

I find that hard to believe. $75 is still alot to spend to get a measley $10 xtra in rewards (it's not even 10 or 20 carts like it used to be! just 5 carts)

I still don't understand who spends 75$ on ink. I buy ink for 20-25$, it lasts for more than an year.

You guys just don't get it. This is for the small business admins. They spend corporate $75 on ink and and pocket the extra $10 from ink recyling. Surely they could buy the ink cheaper but why bother since they won't make the $10. So it is a win-win for everybody (Staples+admin) except for the business.

How do you guys think Marriott etc. survive in this world? No doubt they provide good service but on top of it, they dole out so many reward points with one promotion after another, it is just amazing. People make unnecessary business trips just for the privilege of spending the corporate money so that they can earn a fraction of that for their own vacation .

The same people who go to dealership for car repairs.

Just today, I saw not one but two customers buying ink upwards of $75 each. One of them did not have a card and did not want one. The other couldn't get his looked up and did not want a new one. He even had THREE cartridges for recycling. I offered both the use of my card for a discount. Got shot down both times.

aarzi said:    I offered both the use of my card for a discount. Got shot down both times.

Sometimes, using a discount can mess up the total if you are trying to reach a particular dollar amount - so I can sympathize with those people. The other day I was at CVS - all items pre-totaled on my phone to reach the $30 and $10 rewards didn't spit out. It said that my total was only $28.96. One of the items was somewhat misplaced on the shelf - i.e. the actual price was lower than the tag price on the shelf. I was so annoyed - I had to go back and do another transaction to reach $30.

I understand that. But in these two cases, they were just buying and leaving. No coupons. no rewards card. Nada. I would have taken the savings. Or at least let some other "nice person" benefit by putting it on their card.

Not everyone recycles 20 carts per month. If you are only recycling five or hadn't even thought about recycling old ink carts, this gets you $20 off an ink purchase you were going to make anyway.

Once my kids are out of school, I will use a lot less ink, but, for now, Staples helps me with what used to be a significant expense -- paper and ink for my school kids. Ditto on batteries and packing boxes.

As far as rewards go, casual consumers and the paranoid do not care for them. While I personally am a Staples rewards member, I do not have an account with my local lumber yard or a local grocer.

@ShakuniMama, my dealership does synthetic blend oil changes for $17.95. I can't even buy oil and filter for that. They also have a 10% rewards program and other promotions. On tires, they price match/guarantee. They routinely bid less than alternatives on work.

That is very rare indeed. In my previous career I was a Dealership Tech, and finally a Service Advisor. That is not something they do.
For my 12 Civic a oil change is 39 dollars.

you can view it that way, but it's still not a great deal.

The Fatwallet way is to not turn down any savings. I pick up pennies, even though I do not need to. If I don't need an item. I always can give it away to friends, family or the needy.

As far as reward programs. some people don't want there purchases tracked. Well, don't use credit cards, cell phone, no internet etc. It is very hard to get off the grid, unless you want to live in a tent in the mountains.

P.S. I do all the maintenance myself and everything else is usually under warranty or I don't fix it.

Done,

that depends, I turn down "savings" when my net cost is higher than it should or could be. FW is about getting the BEST deal. If this ink promo IS the best deal for someone, good for them. For me it's far from it. And the reality is, if you want the absolute best savings, in this day of tech, email e-statements, etc. it requires a degree of compromise. And if you have no internet, you're probably not on FW anyway.

Of course, I agree with that statement somewhat If I do not feel that I can get it cheaper anytime soon and we use a lot of that item I will buy it Toilet paper is one example. Bottom line though I don't turn down making 50 cents. A lot of factors go into that decision. Those factors are different for everyone, but one big one is can I resell it if it is not needed, even IF I make only a dollar from the initial deal. Fatwallet is about saving money = finding the best deal. But that best deal depends on the person. Pennies do turn into dollars.

Thankfully one of the new managers at my favorite store is coupon friendly.

Hopefully, there might be another chance at FAR case of paper via kiosk method...^_^

God knows I need it like a hole in my head. I think my floor is going to collapse into the apartment beneath me before I get a chance to donate all this accumulating paper.

LOL SAME!! Finally offloading a couple cases for like $10/ea on CL but its slow going... copy paper not exactly a popular craigslist search.

try trying to unload photo paper on craigslist. ^_^

Is that what one gets for it on CL?  (Assuming one doesn't have a whale...)   I thought I was losing out by not having much CL action in my area.  I sold at yard sale $1/ream and sold 4 cases in hours.  Wished I had more. 
Following year sold for $2/ream, 3 for $5 and sold ~5 cases but had left over cases. 
I 've been able to unload almost all the photo paper every year.  $1 for the large ones, $0.50 for the small ones.
Best part about yard sale is that I just have to get the paper from house to driveway. 

I have gotten $12-$15 a case on CL, but it took listing it FOREVER to get just two customers. Thankfully, once I did, both basically wanted as much as I could provide for them, so I shouldn't have to worry about it. The key is simply finding a business that goes through a ton (many do) AND takes the time to search on CL for it (obviously a much smaller percentage).

Some on SD have bragged about getting like $28 a case on CL. That's hard for me to imagine.

Photo paper is something I'm still contemplating how to get rid of.

I used to get $15 pretty consistently, and had one whale buying everything I could get him for $20. However, it's fallen off to near zero lately (less tire-kickers who want me to deliver 30 miles away in hopes that they'll actually show up and that my gas and time are somehow free).

I haven't developed enough excitement to do a yard sale, but might give that a try at some point.
