Looking for a way to help your child’s school or teacher? Check out this new program being offered by Staples Rewards, called Reward A Classroom. As you may know, Staples Rewards members can already earn 5% back in rewards for their purchases. However, with this new rewards program parents can now earn extra rewards for the teacher of their choice with the Reward A Classroom program. How cool is that!? 😀

Plus, Teachers can earn 2% back in rewards on most everything (excluding postage, phone/gift cards and savings passes) and 5% back in rewards on every Copy & Print purchase. Teachers can earn up to $50 from as many as 40 parents each year. That’s as much as $2,000 back in rewards every year! Sweet!

Here’s how to participate:


*Sign up online and enter the requested information.
*After signing up, update your profile information anytime right here.
*You can also check to see how many people have linked to your rewards account.
*Make sure to tell parents and friends to link to your Teacher Rewards account so they start earning rewards for your classroom!


*Search for and select the teacher you’d like to earn extra rewards for, enter your information and then link rewards accounts.

**(Note, Teachers must be enrolled in Teacher Rewards and parents in Staples Rewards to join Reward A Classroom.

(Thanks, Mister Cheap!) 

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
