[Staples] Staples: Coupons Megathread
Where can I use these coupons?
These coupons are valid on online or phone orders (unless otherwise stated above). For online orders, coupons can be applied HERE. For phone orders, you have to quote the coupon code when placing your order. These coupons are not valid in store, however, some stores have been known to accept them. So it is highly YMMV. You can find the full Staples Coupon Redemption Instructions HERE.
Can coupons be stacked?
Yes, coupons (whether 5-digit or 16-digit) can be stacked as long as you meet the minimum purchase requirements. A maximum of two different 5-digit coupons and/or an unlimited number of 16-digit coupons (given the first 5 digits of the 16-digit code is different) can be applied per online purchase. As well, when ordering by phone, there appears to be no maximum to the number of 5-digit coupons and/or 16-digit coupons that can be applied per purchase, but it is highly dependent on the CSR you get.
Can you give me an example of how stacking works?
If I wanted to make a $250 purchase and there are three available coupons: $10 off $100, $20 off $150, and $30 off $200. Then I can apply the $10 off $100 coupon and the $20 off $150 coupon ($100+$150=$250 purchase requirement), but I wouldn't be able to apply the $20 off $150 coupon and the $30 off $200 coupon because the minimum purchase requirements wouldn't be met ($150+$200=$350 purchase requirement).
What's the difference between 5-digit and 16-digit coupons?
5-digit coupons are generic coupons that can be used once per account. On the other hand, 16-digit coupons are unique codes attached to either your newsletter subscribed e-mail or Dividends account number that can be used only once.
How are 16-digit coupons attached to a newsletter subscribed e-mail or Dividends account number?
The first five digits is the coupon code. The following ten digits is your Dividends account number or a unique string of numbers that identifies the e-mail you used to subscribe to the Staples newsletter. The last digit is a filler to make 16 digits.
How do I get these coupons from Staples?
If you sign up for their newsletter or become a Dividends member, then you will receive periodic coupons from Staples via e-mail and/or mail. However, do note that some members have reported that even though they've signed up, they still do not receive any coupons from Staples. You can sign up for Staples' newsletter HERE or become a Dividends member HERE. Once you start receiving coupons, don't forget to share them with people in this thread.
