For the brick and mortar store shopping week of December 9-15, 2012 (open on Sunday until close of business Saturday), the 100%-back-in-Rewards Duracell single-use alkalinke AA/AAA specials continue at both Office Max and Staples. The terms of the promotion are the same, two total (two AA or two AAA or one of each) at each store for the shopping week (Sunday AM until Saturday PM). It is a new promotion every week, so you can continue doing this on a weekly basis. Infact, both stores have this promotion going on this week (ends close of business Saturday Dec 8, 2012) [see previous post for those].
Meanwhile at Staples B&M stores, for the Dec 9-15 shopping week, you can get a 60pk of Staples brand 4x6 gloss photo plus photo paper for $1 after Easy Rebate. You pay $10 + tax, submit the rebate online, and after a few weeks, you receive $9 back. This is limit four for the week, so if you want to max out, you pay $40 + tax, submit the rebates online, and after a few weeks you receive $36 back. The receive-back options include at least one option of these: cashback-check delivered as a postcard in the mail (too thick for ATMs), prepaid Visa gift card, prepaid Staples gift card, PayPal. While submitting the rebate online, check to see which options are available to you. You must select a different option if you don't want whichever one Staples marks as the default.
