Staples - Copy Print Rewards Fraud
Copy/print Center Rewards - Complaint
I use the self-service copy/print service A LOT. Last year I spent just under $1,000. Most of my purchases were not factored into my rewards. When I called to inquire, the $taple$ CS representative told me a sneaky little $taple$ trick: if you use more than one machine (say, moving from a black and white machine to a color copier) and swipe your rewards card at the end of your session, only the charges from the first machine count. My rewards should have totaled nearly $100. $taple$ only issued me $38 in rewards.
Haha on them. I learned that my town library (closer than $taple$) lets you make color copies for 40¢. At $taple$, they cost 49¢ plus state sales tax. So from now on I'm skipping the rewards hassle, doing my work at the library and coming out ahead. Plus the atmosphere is much nicer!
Screw me once, shame on you. Screw me twice, shame on me.
