The Staples Rewards program is a customer loyalty program that gives enrolled customers a percentage of everything they spend back. The monthly amount spent determines the reward amount and benefits.
All Staples Rewards customers get free shipping and access to bonus events. As of 2015, customers spending $499 or less get 2 percent back and up to $20 a month back from recycling ink cartridges. Cash back amounts from the rewards program go up to 5 percent per month on purchases and up to $40 per month on ink cartridge recycling. Other benefits for higher spending customers include free copying and printing services and technical support. Staples also has a special rewards program for teachers.
