Staples $15 off $50 in-store coupon **YMMV**


With all the good deals @ staples this might come in handy.


Scroll past the chinese and you will see it.


Valid 4/3/06 - 5/31/06. The coupon is from the Texas area, so might not work in your area?

It says it can't be used with "instant savings". . .though in the past people have had luck with similiar coupons depending on the local store BUT this depends on your local store.

(replace the * with t, then paste)


If you can, save the pdf, in case they remove it.

Confirmed...coupon works.

Just got back from my local Staples (Little Rock, AR) and bought:

1) 1GB PNY USB thumb drive (SKU 595802) $44.48

2) Staples 6-outlet surge protector (SKU 485687) $4.98

3) Some candy bar for $0.50 as a filler

Minus the $15 coupon, after tax (7.5%), my total came out to $38.12

The USB drive has a $20 Staples Easy Rebate (SER) and the surge protector has a $5 SER. If you don't know about SER's, they're 'easy as pie', requiring nothing to be mailed in and about 5 minutes of your time on Staples website submitting them.

Final cost will be $13.12, and that's a good price for an average USB drive of this size.

Just an update...

While on my way to give someone a ride, I stopped by Staples again with another one of these $15 coupons. This time I bought the I/O Magic Model IDVD168DL (Staples SKU 643060) dual-layer/dual-format 16x internal DVD burner.

The price is $59.58. Minus the $15 coupon plus tax on the remainder (@ 7.5%) is $43.46, but, it gets better...

There's a $30 Staples Easy Rebate. That's right boys and girls. It's about $13 for this drive, but wait, (I think) this is more than your average DVD burner...

This is actually a rebadged Ben Q DW1670 drive, and from what I understand (correct me if I'm wrong), this is a very highly regarded burner. It's right up there with Pioneer and NEC. So...booyah!



P. S. - One final thought, remember, IF YOU HAVE ANY INK CARTRIDGES TO RECYCLE, Staples will recycle it for you and give you a $3 coupon good for any purchase. What's more, THIS COUPON STACKS WITH THE $15 ONE. I did this for the purchase described above, making the deal a bit sweeter.

Congrats! Great deals BUT those all have "instant savings" so my local staples won't take it.


I might try another branch and see. . .

You probably more than likely have a bunch of FW/SD/BB people in your area. I was able to use this coupon in SoCal also.

Man bummer. You're right. I didn't notice the bit about "instant savings". It seems the sales associate didn't notice that exclusion during my sale. However, I will say, when I was purchasing the burner, a second associate came over to the register and looked at the coupon in more detail. She mentioned that if the item rings up with "instant savings", then they'll not honor the coupon. But, whatever may have been the case, both looked at the screen when it rang up, and both said that it was okay. Funny thing though, I could've sworn the shelf tag for the burner said there was an instant savings. I think in the end though, as Newt' said, YMMV.

I must add that a lot of people have no problem using these type of Staples coupons. . .only a small amount of people have problems. . .I guess it might the fact that I'm in NY. . .most "deal" don't seem to work here sad smiley


But I'm glad others are able to get them. . .

Are Staples' Easy Rebates really that easy? I'm just wondering because I have one for a 1 GB SD card I bought last week and am wondering if I should return it and just buy it cheaper from Newegg.com or somewhere else. Or possibly return it then buy it from a different Staples with this $15 off coupon.

Thanks,



trisho.

Not only are they easy, but they have the reputation among 'rebate junkies' of being the quickest and most reliable. My few experiences with them confirm this.


Update...

Epson Stylus CX3810 Color All-in-One $17.50 AR/AC (it's an easy rebate too):

$62.50 - $15 - $30 = $17.50 + Tax (on $47.50)

And, I don't think there's an 'instant savings' you have to worry about either, therefore this deal should work for everyone.


Update...

Whoa, there's another 30 MIR from Epson for this, meaning you make money after the deal:

Yes, they are great for the main reason that you know when you submit it, as long as you don't return the item you will 100% get the rebate. None of that "invalid barcode," or "missing signature" BS some fulfilment companies try to pull. Also you know when you sumit the rebate it's submitted. None of that "Sorry, we never rec'd your submission" stuff or having to spend $ on delivery confirmation (for larger rebates).

I think the ink carts are only good toward ink purchases. That is what the huge sign
says when you enter. So I put my 4 carts back in my pocket when buying the 150 DVDs of the other day (for $9.48, thank you very much!)

That's interesting, because I asked the cashier that, and she said no, I can apply it anything, in addition to stacking it on top of other coupons (that normally wouldn't be able to be stacked). Maybe she just didn't know the rules well enough.

I pulled out the ink cartridge and she gave me the coupon on the spot as I was buying the burner.
