I cannot believe that back-to-school sales are showing up already! Does it seem like they start them earlier each year?? I love the deals, but yikes.....my kiddles just got out of school a month ago! I'm not ready to think about those early mornings and all that yet! ;p
Staples usually seems to start the sales off with a bang, and this year is no exception! Collin at Hip2Save has a great detailed list you should check out, but here are a few of my favorites.....

New to Staples?
"Easy Rebates" - They really are easy. Either follow the directions on your receipt to mail it in, or fill out the online form at StaplesEasyRebates.com with the information from your receipt. You should get the amount back within 4-6 weeks. It's usually in the form of a postcard check, unless specified that it will be a Visa Prepaid debit card.
"Staples Rewards" - Rewards are like coupons for store credit that are issued 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 wait for the Rewards to be credited to you at StaplesRewards.com w/in the next few months. They'll notify you via email when your next statement is available.
(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 services, and $2 back in Rewards when you bring in any ink or toner to recycle (up to 10 per month).
*IMPORTANT: If you use Staples Rewards or a coupon to buy another item that offers Rewards, the amount will be deducted from your next Rewards check (similar to how Walgreens Register Rewards work). However, you can use Rewards and coupons on Easy Rebate items with and still receive the full amount.
