    senglish - we were typing at the same time, it's so funny when two people are thinking about the same thing at the same time :)

    Good point, I will check on it later today after I retrieve my password. I don't even know if I've signed up online, that's where I'm at in terms of organizational skills :(

    Thanks raleigh! Hopefully, it will come soon so I can pick up some much needed mid-year school supplies.

    I have a similar problem with Staples Rewards -- I somehow don't know that I even have them until they send me an email telling me that my rewards are about to expire. I just now logged into my Staples Rewards account, and I had two rewards waiting ($20 and $20.90) that will expire on 3/31.

    So, maybe it would be wise to log in and check, rather than waiting.

    Staples calculates their rewards at the end of the calendar month, so if you bought it in December they don't close out and calculate the rewards until January first. It'll then take them a couple weeks, I seem to recall 2-3 weeks last time I got one, to issue you a reward certificate.

    This is entirely different from Easy Rebates, which can trivially take 6-8 weeks from submission.

    Does anyone know how long it takes to get the Staples Rewards back? I've been waiting for the 12.99 battery rewards since well before Christmas. It makes me feel like I've missed a step.

    As a former bureacrat, office supplies are my kryptonite.

    The problem with this offer is it's free after Staples Rewards, which will necessitate a later trip to Staples to spend the reward. It's a vicious addictive circle.

    My husband tolerates me buying excess personal care items for pennies, he might divorce me if I buy more office supplies. I'm still hiding free reams I picked up during back-to-school because he has a case sitting in the office we've been working through for a while.

    I may need therapy. :/
