My Staples Trip – 7/19


Now’s the time to stock up on school and office supplies! Here’s what’s free at Staples this week:

Free Backpack (after Staples Rewards) - Staples Rewards members get 100% of the purchase price of one backpack back in Staples Rewards. Rewards will be mailed in October. It’s free to join and worth doing if you shop at Staples.

I really wanted to get my daughter a rolling backpack for next year, but didn’t see any in the backpacks section. I passed by the clearance area at the back of the store and they had the rolling backpacks there! $52.99 backpacks were marked down to $32.00.

I also purchased these free after rebate items (but left them at my parents’ house):

Zebra Sarasa Retractable Gel Pens, – medium, black (5-pack)
Pay: $4.99 (limit 1), Rebate: $4.99

Zebra Cadoozles .7 mm mechanical pencils (10-pack)
Pay: $2.99 (limit 1), Rebate $2.99

Staples Slim-line Pencil Sharpener
Pay: $10.99 after $5.99 instant rebate (limit 1), Rebate: $10.99

Pentel Handy Lines Retractable Assorted Highlighters (4-pack)
Pay: $4.99 (limit 1); Rebate: $4.99

I will submit all four items above to stapleeasyrebates.com to receive a rebate by mail for $23.96, and will look for my Staples Rewards in October for the backpack (and other) purchases.

    I am irritated at the poor customer service at my local Staples, but I think I can suck it up enough to get free stuff!

    Hi Charlene! I forgot to mention that the cash register tape ran out and I didn’t get one of the rebates. So I’m heading back today. I should have checked at the store, but the guy threw all the paper in the bag and said it was all there. I have had TERRIBLE customer service at that particular Staples for years and corporate doesn’t seem to care either. But I’ll go get free when they have it. :)

    So far I haven’t had any issues with their Easy Rebates.
