Staples helps you save. It helps students, small businesses, and professionals save on essential office supplies every day. Staples offers weekly deals you can find through its Weekly Ad. It also offers big discounts and coupons to all of its rewards members.
Coupons, in particular, are a great way to save at Staples. We know how important it is to make sure that you get big discounts every time you pay. We have put together everything that you need to know about Staples coupons, how to use them, and most importantly, how to stack them.
What types of coupons are available at Staples?
There are typically three types of coupons available at Staples.
- Overall order discounts
These transaction coupons offer a discount on your entire purchase so long as you reach the minimum purchase requirement.
- Specific item discounts
These product coupons offer a discount only on the valid item. Occasionally product coupons are for the highest-priced item in your basket, not a specific product.
Rewards members get 2% or 5% back in rewards on their purchases. You can request that the rewards get sent to your address at any time, or your email. Use the coupon code to get an additional dollar discount on your order.
Can I combine Staples coupons?
Yes. Product coupons can be combined with other coupons if you meet the purchase requirements. Rewards members’ coupons can often be stacked or used with other offers. This is not a consistent policy. You will need to read the terms and conditions of your rewards member’s coupons to learn what you can or cannot do.
You cannot stack together product and transaction coupons on electronic and tech purchases, gift cards, phone cards, postage stamps, direct mail services, custom orders, or promotional products.
