Just bought two, the discount appeared automatically when she scanned them.

Roots also has $10 off your first purchase if you sign up for their newsletter. I signed up about an hour ago but still haven't received my coupon, though.
Does this work with gift card purchases? I thought most stores dont allow it

I've never heard of that. Don't most stores treat gift cards like cash?

I didn't have any issue at all using the $10 off coupon at Roots yesterday with my two gift certificates. Ended up getting a $98 wallet for $79.44 tax-in between the Staples deal and the Roots coupon.

FYI it took 3 days for the Roots coupon to arrive in my inbox after I signed up for the mailing list.

Sorry had a brain fart, staples also had a $10 off if you sign up and mixed them up. I was wondering if the $10 staples coupon would work with buying gift cards

So is the anniversary sale only 1 day? I tried googling and seemed it was just the 18th last year. Is my best bet to simply order what I want online, and exchange/refund it later if it doesn't fit since the 18th is a weekday and I will be working?

Wondering if there is expiry date? Shouldn't be, but making sure.
Gift cards shouldn't have an expiry date on them. Gift certificates, gift coupons, promo cards, mall cards, etc. do have an expiry date and/or inactivity admin fee that can reduce the balance.

Is this all staples?
Should be - I checked flyers across the nation and each province shows the promo.

JUST FYI, they only have 1 "rack" for roots cards, so depending how many you want to buy might need to go to multiple stores.

Help. Is it possible they changed their annual sale. It's typically on Thursdays - today I got an email stating to celebrate 44 years.

You spend 125 - get $44 dollars in coupons.

Is this is? Is this their sale I've been waiting for all year.

Will they take gift cards as payment
