View Full Version : 100 pack CD-R FREE AFTER MIR

Buy 4 at $27.94 and you get 111.76 (add state tax)
I live in CA, so it's .08%, so my total is $120.70
Use the $25 Coupon Code, you get $95.70, then the 4 $20 MIR's, they end up owing you $4.30
So, you get 400 Blank CD-R's and THEY PAY YOU :)

No, the rebates might not work for all. Every Staples rebate comes with the "One rebate per name/family/address" clause.

good point... any way around this? Maybe just send to 4 different addresses?

Ok, have a little morality. If there is a great deal, take advantage of it, but I would think twice about doing underhanded things like sending the rebates to your neighbors to avoid legal clauses.

First of all, my family own 2 houses. One of them we are renting out, but they sometimes still get mail for us, since we are the legal owners of the house.. And my dad has a PO Box, and the Community Pool that my dad Presidents and practically runs single-handidly, have a PO Box. There's 4 addresses, all legal :)

Yeah, but you are using the same invoice. Wonder if they track invoice numbers on their rebate system.

Yes they do, If you are going for more than 1 rebate on the same item you need separate orders.
I have purchased items for myself and other family members during Staples sales events. Most of my immediate family members live in IL where there are no Staples stores. I checked with Staples rebate center regarding sending in rebates purchased on my credit card for other family members and was told that as long as they are on separate receipts and going to separate individuals households then there was no problem. But if the rebate centers computer picks up multiple rebate requests (for the same product) on the same invoice or store transaction number then it would be considered fraudulent and could also disqualify any other rebates in their system for any address used and may result in prosecution, depending on how blatent the attempt is.

4 * $20 = $80
You end up paying $15.70
OK, without the math blunder, it's still a darn good price for 400 CD-Rs
I don't see why you'd need so many tho. Maybe you can get three friends to split it with you and then they can use their respective addresses separately. But since you will have only ONE receipt, I don't see how it will work.
You may as well pay $27 + tax - rebate = ~ $9.

If you go to a store today, you can use the $15 off coupon, and you end up having them pay you $6 or $7 after the rebate. Reminds me of the $20 off $20 at OfficeDepot.
