Staples - The Rewards Program is an Absolute Ripoff
SANTA ROSA, CALIFORNIA -- The rewards program is an absolute sham. Your points do not accumulate and expire soon after your purchase. Despite buying several hundred dollars of merchandise over a brief period of time, I have yet to reap any "rewards" from their program.
Recently, I bought toner and copier paper and spent over a hundred dollars. Moreover, I brought in four used ink cartridges and was supposed to be credited two dollars a piece for them that would be applied to my rewards. For the copier paper, I was supposed to get 10% credited back to my "rewards".
Shortly after this transaction, I went on line to print my "rewards". To my surprise, the "rewards" had already expired. The purchase was only two weeks back.
