Couponing Librarian, 06/15/2011: How to Save More Than 90 Percent at Staples







I went to Staples this week, purchased 12 items (all of which make great donation items), and saved more than 90 percent off the original prices of those items. You can do it, too. Here’s how:

  1. Sign up for a free Staples Rewards card. (If you're a teacher, you get even better deals with this card.)
  2. Purchase the following:
  1. Purchase $10 worth of items from the following list:
  • Single poly zip envelope, check size, assorted colors: $1 (reg. $2.29), limit 2
  • Envelopes, No. 10 (20 pack): $1 (reg. $4.29), limit 2
  • Dry erase board with marker, 5.5” x 8.5”: $1 (reg. $2.99), limit 2
  • Expanding envelope, letter size, assorted colors and designs: $1 (reg. $2.49), limit 2
  • Breast Cancer Awareness accessories (e.g., push pins, staples, paper clips): $1 (reg. $1.69 - $2.49), limit 2
  • Staples jumbo paper clips, assorted colors, 50-ct. box: $1, limit 2
  • Staples Xeno retractable ballpoint pens (5 ct.), medium, black: $1 (reg. $3.99), limit 2
  • Staples sticky notes, 1 3/8” x 1 7/8” (12 pk.): $2 (reg. $5.29 - $5.99), limit 2
  • Staples one-subject 5” x 7.75” notebook (80 sheets): $2 (reg. $3.79), limit 2
  • Post-It tape flags, unprinted, assorted colors (4 pk.): $2 (reg. $5.49), limit 2
  • Photo envelopes, 4” x 6”, assorted brights (50 pk.): $3 (reg. $6.99), limit 2
  • OXO office supplies: $3, limit 2
  1. Use the following coupon through Recyclebank (if you do not have an account, you can register for free. You will then need to earn 75 points to "purchase" the coupon, after which you can print it from the Home, Office and Electronics reward category. Incidentally, once you start earning points, you can use them to get lots of other great coupons and discounts.)
  • $10 off $50 or more at Staples
  1. Pay about $40 out of pocket. You will receive rebate receipts for the Staples copy paper and the HP photo paper. You can submit the rebates by mail or online. You will receive $7.98 back for the copy paper and $17.98 back for the photo paper. As a Staples Rewards member, you will receive $8.29 back via e-mail for the pens.
