QUICK STAPLES, GET AWAY FROM THAT SHARK!!!


This is how Staples used to make me feel. Unfortunately the aftermath is turning out just like on Happy Days.


This is the exact body of an e-mail Staples sent me last Thursday. Instead of members receiving 5% back as rewards they would be getting 3%

Wait a sec while I stifle my yawn.

Then I was reading an unrelated thread at Slickdeals when someone said our time to use rewards would be changing from 6 months to 1 month.

WHAT!?!?!?

Under Change 3:
"Rewards expire the last day of the month following the month in which they are issued and cannot be redeemed after the expiration date."

I just checked my July rewards and they expire at the end of September instead of December, as they normally would. I guess this means the max amount of rewards we'll be able to stack towards a purchase will be $80 (in a rapid processing month) instead of $240.

Hopefully I am misreading this and things will stay the way they are. I just bought 300 ink cartridges and only recycled 30 so far. Plus I only have $40 towards that rug I liked. Hopefully we'll still be able to use rewards to buy gift cards.
