I thought it would be helpful to have all the Staples App coupons, deals in one reference thread.

Thanks to everyone who has helped and will help.

Great Idea
Thanks

Thanks OP. Do you only get 1 of the coupons per day, or can you switch locations (via location spoofer) and get to the subsiquent coupons all in the same day? Thanks.

One per 24 hour period, no matter how many locations you try at

Some folks have said they have more than one device, since you dont need to be signed into rewards, you could get more coupons that way.

There are random skips according so some folks over at SD. According to one person, he/she skipped 4 coupons once. But, it a rarely occurs. And AFAIK, no one has figured out how to skip to the better coupons. Well, one SD member claims to have figured it out, but he is unwilling to share for obvious reasons.

Any reports as to whether the 'system' allows one to:

--Buy $75 worth of Breakroom (such as KCups)and Get $20 off (coupon)
--Then use #13: 50% off break room supplies or food

In the past the 50% would be off original price, so:
$75 - $37.50 - $20 = $18
(or $27.50 if 50% off of $55.)

I read reports that people used the #13 for 50% off, and also used a paper $ off on the same checkout order in the store.

Based on what I have read, Staples has already changed the sequence. For example, the first one is no longer $10 off $75.

Did something similar personally. I used a % off and dollar off coupon in the same transaction, and it went through fine. And both coupons discounted from the original subtotal, the order in which they were entered was not an issue. Obviously, Ive done this (experimented) a few times

Some folks have also reported using two dollar off type coupons on the same transaction, but thats a bit more complicated. Normally two dollar off coupons will not stack. But someone recently posted about using a dollar off coupon that was specific to a case of paper and a $10 off $75 (generic) app coupon together in the same transaction and it went through.

All this is in store. Online, all bets are off. I got a $3 off $3.99 online/phone Q that did NOT work online, lol . Had to call it in.

Yeah, I've been trying to cycle through the coupons, but it won't let me. I've been needing a $10 off $75 coupon for a while now.

Great effort OP. Thanks.

The $10/75 is every 4th or 5th coupon, it is by far the easiest to get. I just returned from my errands, stopped in the Staples parking lot, and got the next in line in the que, the $10/75. The only thing that has changed is the first coupon now, is the ink one, but the rest are right in line.

Even if you do the reset and start over, you would get your $10/75, the 4th day, and again the 9th day

"20% off > $40 software. Only applies to one item but will apply to multiples of same item."

I assume that the multiples of the same item can appear as separate items on the receipt. Correct? The cashiers usually scan the items one by one instead of changing the quantity.

Correct. It doesnt matter how they scan it

Then maybe my Staples app is broken. It ways gets stuck on either the $10 off paper or (more often) the $10 off $60 ink. I haven't seen a $10 off $75 or 20% off software in a long time. Btw, for the 20% off SW, the price of each software has to be $40 or just the total cost of all software has to be $40 or more?

Total. Works with the current $35 TM AV software.

It does sound like your reseting, make sure your 'forget me' setting is set to YES

I think the checking must be done at the same store. Last eve I checked in at one store and this morning at another one. It said check ins where ne and posted me the same coupon. In fact the same coupon number. This is on an iPhone.

The checking on my old droid (with fake gps) did switched.

Store does not matter. Multiple check-ins within the coupon's 24-hour expiration period does not do anything.

I have a question for the experts. Staples is running a 10 ream case of paper for $9.99 after rewards this week (ended today). Today I got the "$10 off any case of paper" coupon from the Staples app on my phone. So I went in and used it on said 10 ream case of paper. My question is- Will using the coupon invalidate the rewards on the case of paper or will I actually end up getting it for free after rewards + $10 off coupon? Thanks in advance.

I did the same thing last Sunday, it shows on my rewards as $48.99 minus $10 coupon, $38.99 for the transaction, then shows $39 in rewards. It works that way, since the paper was NOT a free after rewards item, it was a set $39. So I made an extra penny on it, just out the sales tax for the box of paper.

Super, and thanks. I always seem to miss the free case paper deals. This time it worked out then.

The way I was resetting was by Concierge->Settings->changing Forget me to "Off", then closing and killing the app, then reopening the app, then turning Forget me to "On", then checking in again. All I ever get now are the $10 off $60 ink (I have about a dozen with different numbers) and $10 off case paper. When I check in with Forget me "Off", it checks me in, but I never get a coupon. Previously, doing this would let me cycle through the different offers even on the same day; now, the check-in coupons I get are still the same, even after 24h.

does the 40% off bag coupon include rolling laptop cases?

I find that I frequently get an error when trying to get a coupon: "The server returned an error. This may be a temporary problem. Please try again later." Obviously very infuriating to get when you are at the store trying to get a coupon! Has anyone else seen this?

Yes, I get that almost everytime, I try again and usually works, once I had to turn the phone off and start all over. It does take a little effort at times.

I get that EVERY time, which usually requires rebooting the device. Worse, I have only ever gotten a couple of crappy coupons... not even the dollars off ink ones. Bah.

Link, please (how many rebates can one person get for this software?)?

What's dead? There is a new $35 rebate this week, limit 10.

I finally fixed it by doing the "Forget Me?" thing, then killing the app and restarting it. Of course I only got the crappy $10 paper coupon (again).

I find that even though the app claims to be exiting when you hit the menu (or whatever its called) button in Android, it is still running.

Don't see it in the weekly ad, so I guess you'll have to point it out.

I just chatted with Staples, and there is a new one. Expires 4/7.

By doing that, they will probably get people a lot less excited about it. At least if you get a $10/75 the first time you use it, you get people excited to keep coming in for the next one.

Can the Staples app coupons be used for on online orders? Or are they in-store use only?

billrubin said:   I find that even though the app claims to be exiting when you hit the menu (or whatever its called) button in Android, it is still running.

Actually, the app won't even run on either of my Android devices (Incredible phone or Galaxy 10.1 tab). Any time I try to run, I get exception and force close. It only "works" on my iPod (no phone, just 802.11 connection).

In store only.

Saw this in reviews. Might help.

"or Force close problems? Clear app data and re-start, resolved all issues for me"

But saw a lot of complaints that it's not working with Android tablets.
