This deal is only good through Saturday, so act fast!
A reader tipped me off to this over the weekend (thanks!), but I just now got around to checking it out. Sorry for the delay!
The idea is to go through the Ultimate Rewards Mall to Staples.com. Once there, buy up to $700 in Free After Rebate downloadable software. You will get 4 points per dollar from the Ultimate Rewards Mall and another 5 points if you pay with your Chase Ink card or another 1 point if you pay with any other point earning credit card. If you go all-in for $700, this means that you will earn 6300 Free Ultimate Rewards points with your Ink card or 3500 points with another card.
Staples has an amazingly easy “Easy Rebate” system. Once you purchase the software, they send you a rebate link via email. You click the link, fill out a little bit of info and you’re done.
Here are the steps to follow:
Step 1: Go to Staples via the Ultimate Rewards Mall:
Step 2: Add up to 5 Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2012 to your cart:
TIP: Search for item 368665
Step 3: Add up to 10 AVG Internet Security 2012 to your cart:
TIP: Search for item 369321:
Step 4: Check out
TIP 1: If you have a Chase Ink card that gives 5X for office supplies, use it!
TIP 2: Your state may charge sales tax. If you know someone in a state that doesn’t charge sales tax for internet orders (CA, NH, etc.), then set their address as the delivery address and no tax will be charged. These are download only purchases anyway, so nothing will really be delivered. I couldn’t think of anyone’s address to put in, so instead I picked “deliver to store” and picked a store in California that I’ll be close to on a trip next month. Of course, there won’t really be anything to pick up.
Step 5: Submit Easy Rebates
You will receive an email from Staples with a link in it for submitting the rebate form. It’s easy!
NOTE: If you make all of the purchases at once, you only need to submit one rebate per product even if you buy multiple copies of each product. Staples keeps track of how many you bought.
TIP: The AVG software rebate can be changed from a Visa gift card to a check! See screen shot:
