Keep Calm! Staples' ink policy is changing this month

I don't know what this is
I'm sure you heard all the Staples ink recycling changes gossip but they have (finally) issued an official statement.

Cliffnotes version:
If you spend $30 every six months on ink/toner you can recycle the usual 10/20 cartridges at $2 each.

Official Version per Staples' E-Mail:
Recycle any ink or toner cartridge, up to 10 per calendar month per Plus customer or up to 20 per calendar month per Premier customer, and, if the member has spent at least $30 in ink and/or toner purchases at Staples over the previous 180 days, the member will receive $2 back in Staples Rewards per cartridge. Ink and/or toner purchases made on the date of recycling are calculated toward minimum purchase requirement. Minimum purchase requirement net of coupons, taxes and shipping charges.

I am happy this does not affect me at all since I always buy ink for the double reward bonuses Staples loves offering me (and you).
