    My Staples Moneymaker Transaction 7/25/2012

    FacebookTwitterPinterest

    Staples logoI popped into Staples today and decided to buy all of the rebate and penny items in one fell swoop so that I could take advantage of the $5 off $30+ purchase coupon in the weekly ad. So I bought:

    1 Zebra Mechanical Pencils 10-pack @ $4
    1 Pentel RSVP Ballpoint Pens 5-pack @ $4
    2 Staples Multipurpose Paper Ream @ $6.99 each
    1 HP Everyday Photo Paper 50-pack @ $9.99
    2 Staples Pink Cap Erasers 12-pack @ $0.01 each
    2 Staples Ruled 3×5 Index Cards 100-pack @ $0.01 each

    Subtotal: $32.01 + tax
    Total after coupon: $27.01 + tax

    Will Receive Easy Rebates – Zebra Mechanical Pencils 10-pack – $4; Pentel RSVP Ballpoint Pens 5-pack – $4; Staples Multipurpose Paper Ream – 2 x $5.99; HP Everyday Photo Paper 50-pack – $8.99

    Total Rebate: $28.97
    Pre-tax profit: $1.96

    I paid $2.36 in sales tax, so my actual cost was $0.40 for all of these items. Not bad at all, and I picked up some items we will use and some items that I can give to my sons’ teachers when school starts. 🙂
