Got an email today telling me that Premier Platinum no longer exists and it's been replaced with Staples Business Rewards Plus and it will only cost me $59 a year to be a member.

  1. Membership Fee. The fee for membership in the Program is $59 (the “Membership Fee”) for each one-year membership (a “Subscription Period”), which must be paid in advance. Taxes may apply on the Membership Fee. Your membership will be automatically renewed for additional one year periods, and we will send you a reminder notice via email at least 30 days before the expiration date of your current Subscription Period. Unless you notify us by that date that you want to cancel your membership, your Program membership will automatically continue and you authorize us to collect the Membership Fee (and any taxes) using any credit card or billing account we have on record for you. Staples rewards checks cannot be used to pay the Membership Fee. Staples reserves the right to terminate your membership immediately and without notice if you fail to pay the Membership Fee, either upon the enrollment period or during the auto-renewal window.
  2. Benefits. During each Subscription Period, members in the Program (“Members”) will receive the following benefits:

    • Business Exclusive Pricing. Members will receive business exclusive pricing when they are logged into Staples.com with a valid Rewards member number or when they provide their rewards number at checkout in store. Business exclusive pricing will be reflected in cart excluding mobile purchases. When these products are subject to promotions at Staples: (i) which reduce the price of a product (such as promotions offering instant savings), members will receive the lower of the instant savings or the Business Exclusive price; and (ii) which give the member additional rewards (such as promotions offering double rewards), we will match that promotional price with a combination of instant savings and rewards. Any coupon that states that it is applicable to regular-priced items only may not be combined with your business exclusive pricing. If you no longer wish to receive business exclusive pricing, please contact us regarding your Staples Rewards® account at 800-333-3330. Staples’ business exclusive pricing will be governed by the Staples Rewards Terms and Conditions.
    • Extra discounts. Each Member may select up to 5 eligible items (the "Selected Items") and receive extra discounts online and in store on the Selected Items during the Subscription Period. The availability and selection of Selected Items may vary between our stores and Staples.com. Staples reserves the right to make product substitutions based upon Selected Items being out of stock and/or discontinued. Pricing is subject to change based on the market price of the Selected Items. Members may change one of the Selected Items every 90 days. To receive your extra discounts, you must reference your Member number when shopping online or in store.
    • Free Next-Day Delivery. Members receive free next day delivery on orders of eligible items over $25 on Staples.com. Excludes weekends and holidays. Standard Staples.com delivery policies apply.
    • Ink Recycling Rewards Members can recycle any ink or toner cartridge, up to 20 per calendar month per customer, and, if the Member has spent at least $30 in ink and/or toner purchases at Staples over the previous 180 days, the Member will receive $2 back in Staples Rewards per cartridge. Please refer to the Staples Rewards® Program Terms & Conditions for full details.
    • Print and Marketing Services. Members receive $50 in free Print and Marketing Services each Subscription Period which can be redeemed at any Staples store. Benefit is not applicable to online purchases.

  3. Cancellation. Members may cancel their Program membership any time by contacting their account manager or emailing rewardsplus@Staples.com. If the membership is cancelled within the first 30 days, the member will receive a full refund. After 30 days, Staples will refund a pro rata portion to the original method of payment of the prepaid enrollment fee corresponding to the unused Subscription Period, less the value of benefits received while a Member, as determined by Staples. All cancellations will be processed within 3-5 business days.
  4. Abuse. Resellers are not eligible for the Program. Staples reserves the right to terminate a Member's participation in the Program and refund the Membership Fee on a pro-rata basis. Abuse of the Program, including failure to follow or any attempts to circumvent these Terms, or other improper conduct as determined by Staples in its sole discretion, is strictly forbidden, and may result in cancellation of your membership without notice.
  5. General. Benefits issued under the Program cannot be combined with any other coupon, offer or program unless otherwise stated. Membership accounts are nontransferable and may only be redeemed by the Member. Staples is not liable for unclaimed, expired, lost or misdirected statements or other communications from Staples to the Member or the Member to Staples. Staples may in its discretion change these Terms without notice to you by posting updated Terms. YOUR CONTINUED MEMBERSHIP AFTER WE CHANGE THESE TERMS CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE CHANGES. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ANY CHANGES, YOU MUST CANCEL YOUR MEMBERSHIP. Staples’ decision on any aspect of a Member’s account, membership status, and any aspect of the Program or a particular Member’s participation in it shall be final.

Dear Staples,

Welcome to the gutter.


Office Depot (a.k.a., the Jungle) customer . . . anyone else ?

fock Staples. They have a dump online website and stores

And does it get better with the more employees one has? Nope. The membership fee goes higher. All the extras they say I would get, come free as part of numerous credit cards everyone has in their wallets now. Unbelievable.


What was the title of this email? I'm dreading opening Staples emails now
