Yesterday, we posted a quick deal for a $15 rebate on $300 or more in Mastercard gift cards at Staples. This rebate was advertised in the Staples weekly ad online (on page 14), but readers are reporting that they are not receiving a rebate receipt. Additionally, some readers over at Doctor of Credit reported rebate submissions last week (for last week’s Visa Gift Card rebate) that were denied.

This may require more communication with the Staples rebate processor to get…
