    j3434 - look at your receipt. I did the same thing as you and the $5 was distributed across all items purchased. My refund price for the batteries went down by $1.34.

    Thanks J3434 as I was wondering about using that 5 off 25 q.

    tri4sale, yes, that's true! i did use a $5 off $25 coupon and was able to get 2 packs of batteries, 8 jumbo glue sticks (clearance for 50 cents ea), and 3 grid-paper pads (also 50 cents ea). so i'll get 9.99x2 back for my batteries and then the glue sticks and pads were free (they were essentially the $5 i had to "spend" to be able to use the coupon. yea, me!

    Thanks for that warning tri4sale -- thankfully I didn't have my rewards with me or I would have done that when I got some the other day!!

    Don't use your existing Staples Rewards to purchase these, as they only issue new rewards based on what you pay for them after using rewards. Learned this the hardway when I purchased 2 packs last time they did this, used $18 in existing Staple Rewards and when I received my new rewards, only $2 for the batteries.
