Staples Advantage CSU Employee Discount Program

Did you know you can take advantage of the same CSU discounts on things you buy from Staples Business Advantage using your personal credit card? Learn more about the CSU Employee Discount Program.

Items that will be paid by the University should not be purchased on a personal credit card using this program. In other words, employees should not be submitting a reimbursement for items purchased via this program on their personal account/credit card. Any items deemed necessary by the department for purchase should be done via normal procurement processes.

Staples Advantage Auto-Substitution Program

The CSU has directed all campuses to increase sustainability activities. As part of this drive, the CSU worked with Staples Advantage to identify commonly purchased products to have a sustainable alternative.  The result of this collaboration is the creation of the Sustainable Auto-Substitution program that will go-live CSU campus wide on November 1, 2017.

What does this mean for department users who purchase from Staples Advantage in Campus Marketplace?

You do not have to do anything differently. The ordering process will remain normal. The system will automatically replace items in your cart with green alternatives.

A small change. An eco-conscious impact.
