Where have all the FAR deals gone?

Earlier in the year, Staples advertised a new Free After Rebate (FAR) deal almost every single week.  Since Staples Easy Rebates are true to their name (i.e. they really are “easy”), it was possible to use these deals to easily increase credit card spend by about $1000 per month (to meet minimum spend requirements for sign-up bonuses) and to earn many thousands of free frequent flyer miles by shopping through an online portal such as…

3450 free points from Office Depot, but I’m not buying

If you have a Chase Ink card that gives 5 points per dollar for office supplies, FAR (Free After Rebate) deals at Office Depot should be pretty exciting.  Currently, if you log into the Ultimate Rewards Mall with your Ink account and click through to Office Depot, you will earn 10 points per dollar for all purchases in addition to the 5 points per dollar you will earn automatically.  So, FAR deals are great because…

Staples Update

Staples has taken a break from giving us free points:  no Free After Rebate items this week.  Bummer!  However there are a few bits of Staples news and conjecture worth sharing: uPromise: The Frequent Miler Laboratory team (which is basically me and a reader who goes by the title “lab assistant”) has taken on the task of testing whether one can buy Visa gift cards at Staples.com after going through the Upromise portal for 5%…

Yes, up to 2450 more free points from Staples!

This deal is good until April 14. This tip is thanks to a FlyerTalk reader who contacted me.  File this under “unbelievable, but true”.  The same exact product that has been available for “Free after Rebate” the past few weeks is available yet again with a new rebate number!  Since it has a new rebate number, you can order up to 10 more copies even if you did this last week and the week before. …

Staples ups the ante (targeted)

Staples has been giving us so much lately (see “Is Staples the perfect PPM?”) that it’s hard to believe they’ll give more.  However, it appears that they want to do just that.  Unless this is an elaborate April Fools joke, it looks like Staples is testing a new rewards program where they will give 5% back (in Staples Rewards) on all purchases.  Today, they only give rewards for certain purchases (ink and toner, for example)…

Staples keeps on giving

This deal is good until April 7. Eventually I hope to write a post or two that is not about Staples, but as long as they keep giving us freebies I might as well keep writing about them! Did you buy 10 copies of the Free after Rebate Trend Micro Titanium Antivirus last week?  A reader tipped me off that the same deal is back this week, but with a new rebate number.  This means…

Staples Delivers Free Points Again!

This deal is good until March 31. A few days ago I posted “Sorry, an error has occurred“. In that post I explained my disappointment that the Staples site only allowed one copy of Trend Micro Antivirus to be purchased even though the rebate terms allowed 10 per household. It turns out that they’ve now opened it up and allow multiple copies in the cart at once. If you buy all 10, you’ll get a…

Sorry, an error has occurred

I just got off the phone with a Staples’ web guy to see if they were going to fix the item limit issue with the current Free after Rebate Trend Micro deal.  For those who haven’t been reading and studying my every word, I reported yesterday that Trend Micro Antivirus software was available “Free after Rebate” for up to 10 copies per household.  The problem was that Staples’ web site would only allow you to…
