Right now at Staples you can get 20 count AA or AAA for FREE (or MAKE money on them if you have the P&G $110 coupon book) after Staples Rewards Rebate (must sign up for free Staples Rewards card). The batteries are $12.99 and you will get a check for that amount at the end of the quarter. The P&G $110 coupon books have $1/1 Duracell coupons, which brings the price you are paying down to $11.99 for each 20 count of batteries. :)
They also have Scotch Magic Tape on sale for $0.99 this week. You can use this $1/1 coupon towards it making the tape FREE! :)
