The paper is 20lb and 96 brightness.In order to score this deal, you would need to sign up for their Daily Deals email on the bottom left corner of their website at http://www.staples.com/ under “Deals!

Staples does send their junk mail almost daily, but the sales usually don’t change from Sunday through Saturday. At the bottom left of the email, there will be a link to “Get your coupons”. You should check this email every week to see if there a penny paper deal. The deal is limit one pack of paper per week. If Staples offers the paper offer again next week, it will be a part of a different rebate offer, allowing you to buy a pack of paper again.
Make sure you print the coupon before going to the store. The paper is usually on a pallet or with the rest of the paper products. When you present your paper to the cashier, provide the coupon to them along with your Staples rewards card to earn points. Be aware that the 1 cent paper offer is not valid with other coupons, but you can use coupons for other products in your purchase. You will end up needing to pay between $3-6 depending on the rebate offer of the week. For example, if the rebate is for $2.80, you would pay $2.81, but if the rebate is for $5.49, you would pay $5.50.
