This deal is good until March 24th. Even though this sounds similar to items I blogged about before, this is a different product with a different rebate!
The idea here is to go through the Ultimate Rewards Mall to Staples.com. Once there, buy 10 copies of this “Free After Rebate” downloadable software product for $45 each. 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 a standard point earning credit card. This means that you will earn 4,050 Free Ultimate Rewards points with your Ink card or 2,250 points with another card. See Preparing for Miles for more info about the Ink and other cards.
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. Note that you will have to wait a while, though. It may take as much as a few months to receive your check.
Here are the steps to follow:
Step 1: Go to Staples via the Ultimate Rewards Mall:
Step 2: Add ten copies of Trend Micro Internet Security 1 User for Windows or Mac to your cart:
TIP: Search for item 368660
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. This is a download only purchase anyway, so nothing will really be delivered. 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!
TIP 1: Even though you bought 10 copies, you only have to fill out one rebate form. Note that it can take 6 to 8 weeks (or longer) to get your rebate.
TIP 2: The software rebate can be changed from a Visa gift card to a check! See screen shot:
