    were the staples paper the rebates that you put in the computer and they send you a check agian? I got some a few weeks ago and they said that they were going on the rewards cards and I hated that.

    • Yes, these are the CHECK ones… I don’t mess around with “gift card” rebates, not unless I shop at that store at least once a month!

      • amber

        Thanks I completely agree but it wasnt till after I bought them they told me it went to the rewards card. I emailed them and told them I didnt like it I guess a lot of people felt the same way!

      • Are you sure about the check? They told me they changed it this year and only put it on rewards cards.

      • These are checks. A couple of weeks ago, the paper rebate went to Staples Rewards (in-store credit only). However, I did get a rebate last week in the form of a visa card for buying photo paper. That was a spend anywhere card, so I was happy about that. I don’t know why they are doing checks/prepaid visas back and forth and throwing in the Staples Rewards too. I guess it pays to read the fine print!

    Where is the Staples paper coupon? I didn’t see that? TIA

  • Ashley Kalinski

    Where on the Bic FB page is the coupon? I liked the page but don’t see any coupons…

    FredMeyers will also price match, if you bring in the stores ad. Then they have an additional 20% off if you spend at least $20 which was easy when purchasing other items they had at great prices that were on our supplies list. Also, they price matched a calculator for my daughter and then it had an additional 10% off. Great buy was using Toys R Us ad to get 8 boxes of 24 count Crayola crayons ($0.25 each) for $2.
