PSA: Price Match In-Store Items with Online Items from Staples and Office Depot & Stack with Rewards

Good evening everyone, happy Friday.  A few weeks ago, my wife and I received emails regarding our Staples Rewards and Office Depot Rewards.  Somehow, I had $29 in Staples Rewards and my wife had $8.59 in Office Depot Rewards.  This afternoon, I printed out my $29 Staples Reward coupon and went to my local Staples Store to buy some ink for my printer.  Strangely, the price for the ink was more expensive at the Staples Store than on Staples.com.  When I went to check out, I asked the cashier if she would price match to the price on Staples.com and she said yes.  It seemed like a fairly common request to the cashier.  She looked at the price of the ink cartridge on Staples.com on my phone and matched the price.  I was then able to use my Staples Rewards to pay for the item.  In this post, I will show you more information regarding the price match process and show a similar process for Office Depot items.

Staples Chase Offer: $30 / $20 / $10 Off $100 Purchases (Found on Biz Cards)

Good afternoon everyone, I was catching up on Doctor of Credit (it’s almost a full time job to read everything they publish on a daily basis) and just read the post Chase Offers: Save Up To 30% At Staples (Business & Personal Offers).  The post is a few days old, but I am glad I read it.  I had no idea that Staples had a new Chase Offer where you could get $30, $20, or $10 back on a $100 purchase.  As luck would have it, I have 3 business credit cards that each received a different offer ($30 on Chase Ink Cash, $20 on Chase Ink Plus, and $10 on Marriott Biz).  I loaded the offers to my business credit cards and drove to my local Staples.

My AMEX Offer Experiences: Google Express ($50 GC for $30) & Office Depot ($50 GC for $40)

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend.  If you still need to do some holiday shopping, today is a great day to get your shopping done.  Today is Green Monday and many stores are offering deals.  Plus, don’t forget to earn cash back today – Ebates is offering double cash back at 600+ stores today only.  In other news, if you have the Google Express AMEX Offer (spend $50 or more and get a $20 statement credit) or the Office Depot AMEX Offer (spend $50 or more and get a $10 statement credit), I have some data points to share regarding my experiences with those 2 AMEX Offers.  These AMEX Offers came out a few weeks ago, so check your AMEX account to see if you have either of these offers available.  Let’s start with the Google Express AMEX Offer.

Google Express allows you to shop at many different stores (including Staples) and check out once through Google Express.  Luckily for me, Google Express has gift cards for sale through Staples.  I linked the AMEX Offer to a few of my AMEX cards and purchased a few gift cards to give as gifts.

Are you a Teacher? Check out these Perks at Staples & BJ’s Brewhouse

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  I spent Saturday at Treasure Island (the island in the San Francisco Bay between San Francisco and Oakland) at the Treasure Island Flea Market and at Woods Beer Company.  On Sunday, I took my girlfriend back to school shopping at Staples (she is a teacher and needed to purchase school supplies for her classroom).  While we were checking out, she told the cashier she was a teacher and needed a lot of school supplies for her classroom.  Without missing a beat, the cashier reached under the counter and pulled out a big envelope.  Inside the envelope, there were a few freebies along with some very good coupons.  The cashier was a really cool guy and let her use the coupons on that purchase. The envelopes are supposed to be for teachers only, so be prepared to show your teacher ID card, if the cashier asks.

USPS Lost my VirtualPostMail Package Full of Gift Cards & Credit Cards

Buenos dias everyone.  A few months ago, I wrote about VirtualPostMail, the service I use to receive, scan, and forward my physical mail. I typically have them collect items for me over the course of a few weeks, and then I select the items I want to keep and have them shipped to wherever I’m going next. Since I was heading to Washington, DC for work last week, I asked VPM to mail a package to my post office box in Washington, DC a few days before I was going to arrive. This package included several important items:

  • My replacement AT&T Access More Credit Card (since someone tried to hack my account)
  • My new Discover It Credit Card in a different design
  • My Amazon Prime Store Credit Card
  • 1 $50 Hotels.com gift card from Amazon
  • 2 $50 Petco gift cards
  • 6 iTunes gift cards from Staples (3 x $100 and 3 x $50)
  • 2 sets of Cabela’s gift cards I purchased from SVM on eBay
  • My Hyatt Explorist welcome packet
  • My new Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance card
