BUMP for 8/28 week updated Qs

bump for 9/4-10 update

I think this has probably been discussed before, but the coupon says "limit 1 coupon per customer", and the rebate says "limit 4 per customer". If I print out/bring in 4 coupons, it's up to the clerk whether to accept them or not? I think I've had problems with this in the past. If the clerk is being a jerk, can I buy 1 case, carry it out to the car, then come back in and use another coupon, etc, etc? I'd have 4 receipts with 4 separate rebate numbers. Would this make it hard to get all 4 rebates?

Yes
It depends on the clerk
No

Thanks!

IMO, a clerk who insists on imposing the "one per customer" coupon limit is unlikely to relent simply because you walk to your car and come back right away. Might be better to try a second store and or a different cashier (go to another counter or better still a different day/time).

Is there a pdf of the coupon? I'm on a phone and can't get it to print, mobile or desktop.

anyone know the OTD price?

I have some large ink rewards I'd like to cash out of.

Thanks

  $55.99 - $5 coupon = $50.99 out the door - $41.00 rebate = $9.99 AR

  Unfortunately, there are no Staples particularly nearby, so I try to maximize my purchases. The next nearest store is not so nearby, and the store is usually not very busy (one person at the counter at a time).

Just as a follow-up:

I went into the store, which was totally empty. I walked up to the clerk and said, "I have 4 coupons for 4 cases of paper because the rebate limit is 4. Is that ok?" She said, "if the computer accepts it, it's fine with me". Great. I found the cases (and reams), loaded up my cart, and by the time I got up to checkout, there was a huge line, so another employee materialized, grabbed my cart, and dragged me to her counter (curses!). I handed her the printed coupons. She scrutinized them and said, "1 per customer". I said, "so why is the rebate limit 4?" She said the rebate is 4, but the additional special lower pricing is limit 1 per customer.....but she let me enter all the coupons this time around as a courtesy.
 

I have had the same experience. "You're violating the rules but I'll let you."

Just means they won't make a stink but don't want you there the next day with another 4 coupons.
