FREE Duracell batteries at Staples (plus possible moneymaker!!) and deals for 12/12 - 12/18

Staples has been running a promotion for a few weeks offering 20 packs of Duracell batteries (AA or AAA) for free after Staples Rewards**.  Just in time for all those batteries you need around Christmas time!!  The cashier told me yesterday that they would be continuing this until December 31st or until supplies run out - and they had oodles of batteries at the store I visited!  You can get 2 packages per week for free.

I got them for free and made 6.90 buying them this past week!  You can get them free + profit this week too!

Buy 2 packages at $12.99 each and get 100% back in Rewards.
Use this Staples 15% off coupon (expires Sun., Dec 12th!) to take off $3.90.
Or use this $10/$25 Office Depot coupon (exp. 12/13) to make it even better!!  I don't believe they'll take the Staples and Office Depot coupon though.
Use two $1/50/1 manufacturer coupons (11/14 RP or 12/12 RP) to take another $3 off.
Then (here's the sweet part!) , not only do you not have as much out of pocket, but they still send you the full amount back in Rewards!   =)
= FREE + Moneymaker!
Plus, they have some cool little bonus items in the packages......Tide-to-Go pens, "gift openers", little flashlights......etc.  =)


They have a couple more deals this week too (thanks Collin!) - great time to use that 15% off coupon or $10/$25 coupon. Remember the 15% expires 12/12 and the $10/$25 expires 12/13!  I showed the scenarios with the 15% off coupon, but you could do a couple transactions with the $10/$25 for some even better deals.  =)

**If you're not familiar with Staples Rewards program or Easy Rebates, here are some details.........
"Staples Rewards" - Rewards are like coupons for store credit that are mailed quarterly (as long as you've earned $10 or more).  You sign up for free and are given a Rewards card, which they scan at checkout (or look up by phone number).  That's it!  No mailing or submitting necessary - just look for the Rewards in your mailbox w/in the next few months.  (They do expire, but my store still honors them so it's good to ask!)
One membership per mailing address. They have brochures in the store, and you can sign up online They always offer 10% back in Rewards when you buy any ink or toner, case paper, ream paper, Copy and Print, and $3 back in Rewards when you bring in any ink or toner to recycle (up to 10 per month).

"Easy Rebates" - they can be submitted online and they really are easy. Just fill out the online form at with the information from your receipt.  You should get the amount back within 4-6 weeks. It's in the form of a postcard check, unless specified that it's in a Visa Prepaid Debit card.
