10-second tip: get $160 of paper (3 cases) for free!

Happy New Year!

This is one of those “stock up” situations that is also a “might as well” if you’ve got the space in your garage.

Right now, Staples is offering cases of paper for $9.99 (cost after rebate). You can scoop up a limit of four boxes with this deal, but if you choose to get three boxes, you can get them completely for free.

Here’s how:

1) Add three cases of paper to your cart. Your total will come to approximately $160.

2) Click through to the payment page. You will have the option to select “Pay with Visa Checkout.” Click that tab.

Paying with Visa checkout will subtract $30 from your total cost. Note that you do NOT have to use a Visa card to get this deal – you just have to pay with Visa checkout.

3) Your new total should be approximately $130.

4) Purchase the paper.

5) Fill out three Staples Easy rebate forms to get $44 back on each box of paper, for a total of $132.

6) Voila! Free paper.

BIG hat tip to Dan’s Deals for this one. Thanks, Dan!


  1. Its not free as you still have to pay tax. It does require you use a VISA as it verifies that and my first order was rejected. Total was $143.50- $132 you get back. $131.97 was total before tax. Still a good deal

      kj – Glad you enjoyed. You can definitely use other payment options with VISA checkout – maybe a glitch in the system the first time you used it? And yes, if you purchase 4 cases, the total will be higher.

  2. Great tip! I don’t need the paper but I am purchasing & am going to donate to a not for profit which gives me the extra bonus of a tax write off as well.

    Another way to maximize is to purchase the paper through a shopping portal – I used the AA portal to get 2x points per dollar, not a huge amount of points but an additional bonus.

  3. Thank Kendra, this is an awesome deal!! I was able to stack this deal with my $20 off of a $60 purchase coupon…my total came to $111.97 before taxes!!

  4. oops too late! out of stock
