Many of you have seen my posts about how to get free merchandise using shopper loyalty cards and rewards programs. Staples has a Rewards program that helps you save money and best of all, it’s FREE to sign up.
It’s easy to sign up for the Staples Rewards card, it takes only a minute or two and you are on your way to receiving 10% back in Staples Rewards on ink and toner purchases, case and ream paper purchases and copy and print purchases. You will earn unlimited quarterly rewards on qualifying purchases!
Staples Rewards are mailed out within 30 days of the end of a calendar quarter and you can redeem your rewards by phone, online or in stores.
Another great reward is Ink Recycling. You can bring in up to 10 ink or toner cartridges for recycling each month and you will get $3 back in rewards per cartridge. These rewards are also issued monthly.
Staples Rewards members also receive FREE delivery on all orders of $50 or more (excluding custom products).
There are only a few excluded products which you can read about along with complete details of the program on the terms page. Staples Rewards is overall a great program that helps you save on home, school and office supplies.
Staples has also been running specials in their weekly ads for Rewards members – they can purchase products and get 100% of the purchase price back in Staples Rewards. You will purchase the items and pay for them, make sure to scan your Rewards Card. Purchase price paid for the qualifying items will be credited to your Staples Rewards account. Rewards are mailed the following month after the promotion, not valid on previous purchases and the purchaser is responsible for any sales tax. Staples Rewards are refunded via a check redeemable at Staples. I was told by my store manager that you don’t have to use the whole check at once, you can break it up into 2 purchases if needed.
The only thing I would make note of on this program is that Staples Rewards checks have an expiration date. Be sure to check the date when you receive yours so don’t let it expire on accident. Also, if you have a return or exchange that you paid for with a Staples Rewards check, you need to make sure you do it before the expiration date which will be located at the bottom of the transaction (on the receipt). If you don’t, you will not be able to return OR exchange the product.
