I heard about similar thing happening to someone else. That person was reselling and having the paper shipped directly to the buyer. The buyer had previously been purchasing their paper from Staples. Someone noticed drop in sales to the buyer and increase in purchases by the reseller. Reseller had their Rewards acct closed but still able to purchase and to do rebates. Perhaps someone noticed a pattern with your purchases?

It seems it cannot be used on any item that has a rebate associated with it (although it doesn't spell that out on the coupon).. I tried to use it on the one cent after rebate ream paper deal but the coupon would not work.
How do you know it didn't work? Even if you what you purchased didn't qualify, the offer should still apply to your account and the coupon shown on the receipt. I know it didn't work because the manager who was ringing me up told me. I used the coupon successfully a couple days later when I bought something with no rebate attached (I made some full-service copying).

I only sold cases of paper recently and nothing else. Staples is really cracking down on people. Hell. You didn't happen to use CL for sales and use the phone number associated with your Rewards account?

But I can't believe Staples will have real person to monitor these sites and work like a detector. I don't consider myself as a reseller -- People often get rid of their extra junks in garage using CL.
