16pk Duracell AA or AAA single-use batteries for 1c + Tax after Rewards [updated]

UPDATE: the affiliate links to Office Depot are not working for some reason. Except for Amazon, eBay, B&H and Adorama, the rest of the retailers are mostly clueless when it comes to affiliate programs 🙂 I replaced them with direct links.

If you are part of the Office Depot and Office Max Rewards program, among the Reward Offers for the week of Sunday July 24 until Saturday night fever July 30 in 2016, you can get up to two 16pks of Duracell single-use AA or AAA alkaline batteries for $0.01 after Rewards. Only these 16-packs are eligible. You can get two AA or two AAA or one of each. Maximum two 16pks total regardless of AA or AAA.

You pay $13.99 plus tax (if applicable) for one 16-pack. A few weeks later you will receive the equivalent of $13.98 in Office Depot rewards. Sales tax is not refunded. This offer is good online and also in-store. Make sure you show the reward card if buying in-store or you have the correct Rewards number linked to your online shopping account if buying online.

While there, they have a very nice deal on their website for this hybrid Solo Backpack/Briefcase for laptops. It has two sets of built-in straps, one to wear as a backpack and one to carry as a briefcase. The sale price is $25.
