Buying giftcards on staples online
« on: July 03, 2013, 12:26:44 PM »
I bought one of these codes on ebay for $25 off $75 for staples.
When I added 3 home depot $25 gift card to my cart, it took off $25.
Is it possible that it would work? I am worried they will cancel the order if it officially says that the code isnt for giftcards?
Thanks ppl

You will probably get a call from the order processing dept, and they'll tell you that the Coupon needs to be removed in order for them to fulfill the order.

I do it all the time, but use one a week or so, getting will will flag your "name", and no coupon will work.

When was the last time you did it?

I also used to do it all the time, but lately it has gotten much harder.

Because you need to do it weekly (once a week) Once flagged, you are DONE! I do it on my wife's name (my name is killed with coupon abuse) whenever I get the coupon by email.

How about in store ? Does it work automatically or does the coupon need to be accepted manually

YMMV
they sometimes catch these and cancel the orders

It used to work for me a few months ago but it stopped. It was nice while it lasted; getting a $100 GC for $80 even without the points of an ink card and getting closer to a spending threshold is well worth it. Then I started getting calls from Staples that if I want my order to go through I have to pay everything by CC no coupons accepted.

Imagine that this would work endlessly!
