Today, 3/15, Staples rolled out a new tweak to its Staples Rewards program. Here's a bit about some changes you can expect...
1. You can now earn 5% on everything you buy, both online and in-store. Nice! You need to earn at least $10 a quarter. Anything less and you lose it. Bummer for those who don't spend there consistently. I can only suggest that you keep an eye on your rewards balance. However, with 5% back on purchases, it is more likely than not that most people won't lose any accrued balance rewards under this rule. Screen cap from TOS below.
2. Ink Rewards is a little different. You still can turn in up to 10 spent cartridges per month, but you only earn the $2 rewards so long as you've spent $30 on ink in the past 180 days. I imagine this is to deter people who don't regularly shop at Staples for ink from bringing in their ink and then not buying any themselves.
From the new TOS:
What do you think? Do you think this new system will make you want to shop at Staples more often?
