Second chance for free points from Staples, today only!


This deal is good today only, so act fast!

Staples has a few more FAR (free after rebate) downloads available this week.  By going through a shopping portal to buy these, you can earn points or cash back while also putting extra spend on your credit card, for free.  I’ll soon post about the new deals, but for those who missed out a couple of weeks ago on this deal, here’s another chance to buy Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security for free (after rebate).  You have to act fast since this deal is for today only.  And, please note, this is the same software I wrote about a couple of weeks ago so don’t buy it a second time since rebates are limited to 5 per household.

UPDATE: A few readers have notified me that this is a different rebate number so it should work again even if you bought these last time around!  I’ll give it a try and update the post soon.

UPDATE2: I just ordered 5 copies and turned in the easy rebate.  As far as I can tell, this is going to work even though I bought the same item a couple of weeks ago!

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.  Of course you do need to wait about two months to get your rebate…

Here are the steps to follow:

Step 1: Go to Staples via the Ultimate Rewards Mall:


(Note: if you do note have access to the Ultimate Rewards Mall, search for Staples on and pick out the shopping portal that gives the best rebate, miles, or points for your situation)

Step 2: Add up to 5 Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security 2012 to your cart:

TIP: Search for item 368665


Step 3: 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 4: 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 rebate can be changed from a Visa gift card to a check! See screen shot from when I bought these a few weeks ago:
