Staples 7/8 (Maureen) – Pay $2.50 for 5 1/2 Reams of Copy Paper (Retail $28.98) Through July 15 – That’s 2,750 Sheets of Copy Paper!


If you are like me, you print good coupons as soon as you see them even if you aren’t sure you’ll use them before they expire because if you don’t print when they’re available, they may be gone when a hot deal pops up days or weeks later.  I end up throwing out a lot of printed coupons, but at least I don’t waste a lot of money on unused printables because I maintain a low-cost copy paper stockpile by taking advantage of free or cheap paper deals.  I also refill my own toner cartridges, so I pay less than $15 per year for paper and toner – and I print A LOT.

This is the time of year when office supply stores run great deals on copy paper.  I used to wait for $0.01 per-ream deals (after coupon and rebate), but I haven’t needed to buy paper for a long time, so I don’t even know if those penny-per-ream deals are all that common now.  But I am down to my last two reams of a major stock-up a few years ago, so I jumped on a current Staples deal to pay just under $0.50 per ream.  I prefer Staples rebates because the rebate is in the form of a prepaid Visa card that can be used anywhere.  To me, that is an advantage over deals that pay the rebate in points or store credits that usually have a lot of restrictions.

I went to Staples last evening after spotting a killer in-store-only deal on copy paper requiring a coupon that expired on 7/8.  But as it turns out, Staples is running the exact same promotion this week, so you can get this deal through Saturday, July 15.  With the coupon and Staples Easy Rebate, you’ll pay just $2.50 net plus tax for a four-ream case (500 sheets to a ream) plus one 750-sheet “super” ream.  That’s 2,750 sheets of copy paper for $2.50 plus tax.  I may get this deal again this week to really build up my stockpile.

How to get the deal?  You’ll need to visit a Staples because this is an in-store deal through Saturday, July 15.

First, go HERE and print these coupons:

50¢ Staples® 8.5″ x 11″ copy paper, 750 sheets, after easy rebate and with coupon.

  1. Elizabeth says

    I bought both in one transaction. Will I still get both rebates?

    • Yes. It’s even easier because you only need to enter one receipt number for both rebates.

  2. Oh my gosh Maureen……..I have so many questions for you on this.
    If it would be possible, when you get a moment could you email me with some information?

    1) Can you buy more than one at the same time (e.g. 2 of each products above) and submit for the rebate (I don’t normally shop at Staples)
    2) I’m in need of another printer and was wondering a couple of things about what you had mentioned.
    a) what make and model printer do you have
    b) how exactly, do you refill your own cartridges?

    This is an AWESOME sounding deal. I’m running really low too, and have been known to use the backside of junk mail I receive. (LOL).

    Much appreciated for any feedback and assistance you can provide.

    • I can answer here because other people are probably wondering.

      Each coupon states one deal per customer, so you can’t buy two of each and get the rebate for each one. One of each is what you can get. I got the rebates last week for each one, but this is a new week with a new purchase period (July 9-15), so the rebate codes are different, and I can get two more (one of each again). It’s possible they’ll offer the deal again next week, but I don’t know.

      My printer is a Dell monochrome laser 1710 that I bought almost 15 years ago. It’s not likely available as a new machine, and with all the other options available in newer laser printers for wireless, multifunction, etc., it would not be my first choice today. But it’s been a workhorse, and I have no complaints.

      Whether you can refill your own toner cartridges depends on the cartridges. Ditto for how you refill them if they are refillable from a kit. My cartridges have a plastic plug on one end, so all I have to do is pull out the plug, dump in the toner, pop the plug back in, and replace the stick-on reset chip, which comes in my kit. You also need to be sure you are using the correct toner formulation for your printer. Toners are not interchangeable. A cartridge can usually be refilled three times before you need to get a new cartridge, but empty cartridges are available for cheap.

      I used this company the first time I refilled my toner:

      It was a great kit (very good company to deal with). I paid around $25 for a bottle of toner and reset chip the first time I ordered around eight years ago. A new toner cartridge from Dell was around $100 at the time (and around $110 at Staples), so I was thrilled. I would start with that company to see if kits are available for your toner cartridges because you can search by printer model and they really know toner cartridges.

      However, after ordering from that company a couple of times, I found a better deal on Amazon. By that point, I was very comfortable refilling the cartridge, so I looked for a lower price. The last time I ordered was June 2015, and I paid $11 for enough toner for a 6,000 page high-yield cartridge and a reset chip (free shipping). The price has gone up to $14.85, but shipping is still free. Here is the seller that I bought from in 2015:

      Good luck! I’ve saved $100s refilling my own toner.

      • Thank-you Maureen I was going to ask the same question about refilling your ink cartridges thanks for the detailed information your posts are always an inspiration.

      • As always……… are FANTABULOUS !!!
        Ditto to Pauline’s scentiments 🙂

        I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who wanted to know the in’s and out’s of filling printer ink (lol).

        I appreciate the thorough explanation. Happy shopping !

  3. Office Depot has a team of paper for a penny after a $5.99 rebate this week. They are still a regular deal.

    • Thank you for posting. I just looked and you can get 3 reams for 1 cent after $5.99 rebate, but the rebate is paid in Office Depot rewards, not cash. I actually prefer the Staples deal because I want the rebate in a Visa prepaid card that I can use anywhere on anything. The Office Depot rebate has to be used at Office Depot and there are lots of exclusions when using Office Depot rewards.

      I got a great battery deal at Office Depot last year. I paid $0.01 for 16-pack Duracell batteries after rewards (I got two deals and had about $26 in rewards), but I hated the restrictions. I planned to use the rewards on a new wireless mouse, but then learned (after buying the batteries) that I couldn’t use the rewards on any kind of technology. Also, if you use rewards to pay for an item, you don’t earn any rewards you would otherwise receive if you paid cash. Office Depot rewards do not roll. That is what I mean by restrictions I don’t like.

      The old Staples penny-per-ream deals paid the rebate in a prepaid gift card or PayPal deposit. Straight cash back for the rebate.

      However, for anyone who shops regularly at Office Depot and doesn’t mind the restrictions, $0.01 per ream is a great price.

  4. Hi, Maureen! I can’t find the “Print Coupons” button on that page.

    • Clip the coupons and look at the bottom of the computer screen. The print button appears when you clip a coupon.

  5. Hi, I got $5off purchase $5 email coupon this morning.
    If I use this coupon to pay for 4ream-case, can I still submit easy rebate to receive a $12 VISA prepaid card?
    thank you.

    I heard some people receive $10off/$10 . check your mail !

    • I don’t know if you can use it with the paper deal. You’ll have to read the fine print to see if either offer excludes combination with another offer.

    • I got the $10 coupon. Here is the fine print:

      $10 OFF $10: Valid online at®, by phone at 1-800-333-3330 or in Staples® U.S. stores. Excludes Daily Deals and Auto Restock orders. Limit one coupon per customer, nontransferable. Minimum purchase requirement must be met with purchases to which no other coupon or instant savings offer applies.

  6. I just purchased two deals (bought one, took it to car, then went back in and purchased another deal). The receipt says there is a limit of **3** deals per household (so I will probably go back and get another set).
    After taxes (in Florida), it ends up being $4.07 for each set purchased.

    What an A-W-E-S-O-M-E deal !!! 🙂

    Now on to that new printer (LOL)

  7. My .50 cents coupon only took off .50 cents but the $2 coupon took off 5.99. Still a great deal

    • I just looked at my rebate paper and it’s $7.99 for the 750 sheet of paper. So getting $20 back in rebates.
