BOGO on multipurpose case paper at Staples with new coupon
Staples just released a buy-one-get-one free-after-rebate coupon on Staples multipurpose case paper. Click here to print the coupon. This paper goes for $48.99 per case.
Now remember to do some Shoppers Math. BOGO is usually a great deal. But BOGO is the equivalent of a buy-two-items-get-50%-off sale. So make sure that if the paper were merely on sale for $24.50 that you would still want it at that price (I've actually seen it for even less than that), and that you would want two cases of it. Also, realize that you won't receive your $48.99 back for several weeks, until after the rebate comes through, and that you need to follow the rebate instructions to the letter, or you won't receive it at all. I'm not trying to put a damper on the coupon, just to splash a little cold water on what BOGO-after-MIR (buy-one-get-one-free-after-mail-in-rebate) really means.
