[Staples] 10x Airmiles Instore on Friday - August 11th

10x AirMiles
One Day Only = Friday ~ August 11th
In-Store Only

As this does not require a coupon (automatic at the cash)

It should also be combinable with the current coupon that e-mail subscribers receive:

How much money is that worth? 10% back?
Well the regular AM Rate @ Staples is 1 AM for $ 40
With this offer it would be 20 AM for $ 80 (minimum required purchase amount)

With a $ 150 purchase (minimum needed to use / stack the coupon)

It would be $ 150 - $ 15 (10%) = $ 135
Plus 10x BONUS AirMiles
$ 135 / 40 = 3 x 10 = 30 AirMiles

Double Dip with a cc and earn even more
(example BMO AM can be as high as 1 / AM for every $ 10)
So on $ 80 = another 8 AMs
On $ 135 = another 13 AMs

With AirMiles Cash Miles
95 AMs = $ 10

So for the first example savings:
$ 80 = 20 AM = approx $ 2.10
Add in AM CC = 28 AM in Total = approx $ 2.95

In the second example savings:
$ 135 = 30 AM = approx $ 3.16
Add in the AM CC = 43 AM = approx $ 4.53
Plus the $ 15 Coupon
So overall savings = $ 18.16 (without AM CC) to $ 19.53 (with AM CC)

Or about 13% in combined coupon & AM value

Of course if you shop the flyer & buy stuff on sale, you could save even more
