    The Hammermill paper deal w/ the easy rebate will def result in a check being sent to you. However, I got an e-mail notice that they will no longer mail “rewards”, you will have to get them by e-mail (and I guess print it and take to the store. Therefore, I thought w/ the battery deal you would get it credited to your rewards, NOT get a check. Am I mistaken? I hope so, I’d rather get the cash back, but unsure now how it will work! THANKS

Will this reward check be mailed, or do I get it by e-mail? Thanks for clarification.

    I was looking at the Staples Rewards info and I didn’t see anything online about the rewards coming via email.

    However, it did say that you will only get the rewards if you reach $10 worth of rewards in a calendar quarter. So if you only buy one pack of batteries and don’t have any other rewards, you would only be at $9.99 and would not get a Staples Reward for the quarter. That’s my understanding, at least.

    I was trying to find out how long the rewards are good – i.e. how long do you have to use them before they expire. Anybody have experience with these?

    Also, I’m wondering if you’d be able to use the rewards towards something with a rebate, like a future paper deal.

    From what I understand, Staples sends out rewards monthly if you’ve reached the $10 minimum. If you don’t reach the minimum by the end of that quarter, it expires and you lose it.

    If you did the paper deal as well, I’d think that would put you over the $10 minimum as you get either 1% or 10% back on that type of purchase.

    HTH!

    Here is a link to the FAQ of the program– I have done Staples deals before, and they sent me a “gift card/code” thing that you can use online or in the store as credit. Any credit not used from the initial reward that they sent you can be rolled over ONCE. (so you have to use the entire balance of your reward by your second transaction using the reward, or you forfeit the remainder of your reward.)

    My staples ad had a 20% off entire purchase coupon on the back. After applying that to the paper, my cost after taxes and rebate was 1cent per ream. I also used it to get Norton Antivirus 2010 which after rebate and taxes was only $4.98. I like Staples!!!

    I bought the paper, submitted the rebate and just got notified that the rebate doesn’t apply unless it is bought in the store.
