No, you do not need to print in color. The most important thing is that the card number is clear. If it's not, you may need to install a new ink cartridge. (Need to restock? We can help with that.)

Is there a limit to how many times I can print or copy an eGift Card?

You can print as many times as you need to; the value of the eGift Card is tied to the gift card number, not the printout. When that number is used, the value of the purchase is deducted from the eGift Card. That means you should safeguard your eGift Card for your own protection. If someone makes a copy of your eGift Card and redeems it for the full amount, your copy will have no value.

How do I redeem a rebate offer?

There are two ways to redeem a rebate offer:

Staples® Easy Rebates®

Now you can submit most rebates online — no clipping, no mailing, no hassles. Easy Rebates are available on products purchased in Staples stores, through our catalog and online at

Look for Easy Rebate products every time you shop. They're identified by the phrase "Easy Rebate" in the product description. When you're ready to submit your Easy Rebate, go to and enter the required information right online. You won't have to clip out UPC codes or mail in receipts. You'll even receive emails keeping you posted on your rebate status, with links to the Track Status page online. Best of all, you'll receive your rebate faster than ever — within 4 to 6 weeks.

Note: Certain products, including most software titles, are not eligible for online submission. Any products excluded from the online submission process will be advertised as qualifying for a "mail-in rebate" versus an "Easy Rebate."

Mail-In Rebates

Mail-in rebates are easy to redeem too. You can find and print rebate forms, and even track the status of your mail-in rebates, at

Because many rebate offers require original sales receipts and rebate forms, it's important to make copies of both and keep them with your records. Should a problem arise with your rebate redemption, having these copies will make it easy for us to resolve the issue.

If you purchased a rebate item through our catalog or at and a receipt is required as Proof of Purchase, you should use the packing slip that was included in your order as your receipt.

If you have questions about your rebate, please call 877-266-6483 Monday through Friday 7:00 am to 12:00 am ET, Saturday 8:00 am to 12:00 am ET, and Sunday 10:00 am to 12:00 am ET.

Will using Staples Easy Rebates allow me to receive my rebate faster?

Some manufacturers tell customers they must wait 8 to 14 weeks to receive their rebate. But with Staples Easy Rebates, you'll receive your rebate 4 to 6 weeks after you submit it — or maybe even sooner than that. (Note: During the holiday seasons, rebates usually take 6 to 8 weeks.)

Was this answer helpful? No

I lost my sales receipt. Can I still get my rebate?

For a mail-in rebate, in most cases all you'll need is your rebate redemption form. See details of the specific rebate for more information. With Staples Easy Rebates, the vast majority of rebates do not require a sales receipt. You will, however, need your rebate redemption form for a retail purchase or your packing slip for an online or delivery purchase.

Was this answer helpful? No

When submitting an Easy Rebate, can I submit more than one rebate at the same time?

Yes you can. There's no limit on how many rebates you can submit at one time. After you've finished entering the first rebate, you'll be asked whether you have additional rebate offers to submit.

Was this answer helpful? No

I bought two (or more) items that fall under the same Easy Rebate promotion number. After entering the first SKU online, I'm not able to submit for the additional SKU(s). What should I do?

If you purchased multiples of the same product with a rebate or if you purchased multiple items that fall under the same rebate offer number, you only need to enter the rebate offer number once. The system will use your Easy Rebate ID number or order number to verify the rebate products you purchased. Then it will update your status to reflect the multiple rebates.

Was this answer helpful? No

If I take advantage of the Staples Price-Match Guarantee on a product, will I still be eligible for a rebate on that same product?

In most cases, yes. However, you need to check the terms and conditions of the rebate to see if there is a minimum purchase price requirement. If there is a minimum and the Price-Match Guarantee brings you below that price, you will not be eligible for the rebate.

Do I lose any Staples Rewards when I redeem a rebate offer?

No, you do not.

Was this answer helpful? No
