(EXPIRED) 2.5% / 2.5x in-store at Staples via Rakuten [Targeted?]

Rakuten is offering 2.5% cash back or 2.5 Membership Rewards points per dollar spent in-store at Staples. This may be targeted as I’ve seen some people mention not seeing the offer, though both my wife and I see it in our accounts. This could be a great deal if you’ll be shopping in-store at Staples in the coming days.

The Deal

  • Rakuten is offering 2.5% cash back or 2.5 Membership Rewards points per dollar spent for in-store purchases at Staples through 12/31/21 (though it may not ultimately last that long). You must link the offer to your cards.
  • Direct link to in-store offers

If you’re new to Rakuten

At the time of writing, Rakuten is offering a $40 bonus for new customers who sign up this week and spend $40 or more within the first 90 days. Spending in-store with card-linked offers counts. If you’re new to Rakuten and you’d like to sign up, feel free to use the Frequent Miler referral link with our thanks:

  • Offer expires Dec. 31, 2021.
  • Terms and restrictions apply.
  • Limit of 1 redemption per cardholder.
  • Debit card purchases must be processed as credit to be eligible for Cash Back. When using your debit card, do not enter your PIN.
  • Offer not valid for gift card purchases. Cash Back from gift card purchases will be deducted from your Cash Back Balance.

  • A linked offer will expire 1 hour after redemption. After such time the offer must be re-linked prior to your next purchase.
  • A linked offer that has not been redeemed will automatically expire 45 days after it is linked or on the date the offer itself ends, whichever is sooner.
  • Cash Back earned will be paid with your next eligible Rakuten Big Fat Check!

Quick Thoughts

If you use Rakuten, it is totally worth syncing up a card that earns a good return at office supply stores for your in-store purchases. Note that gift card purchases are excluded as per the offer terms (it says that cash back earned from gift card purchases will be clawed back). If you’re new to Rakuten, this also makes for an excellent stack with the offer for $40 back on $40 or more for new customers.
