What qualifies as "office supplies" for the 5% cashback?

That same card featured on here that gives the 5% cashback on gas, wireless and office supplies. Does anyone know what qualifies as an office supplies purchase? Do Staples and Office Depot count? How about if you're just buying office supplies at a normal store like Wal-Mart?

I don't know that's a good question. I actually have that card which is featured on the homepage and I only make sure my gas and wireless is processed properly, I've never paid attention to my bill for the office supplies category. Perhaps one of us should call Amex and find out if Staples counts?

Whatever you do don't spend at warehouse places like Sam's Club or Costco thinking you'll get any extra rebates above 1 percent. I found out not even the gas stations at these places count for the gas rebate category on my card. I don't really care though because you wait in line forever at those places only to save a few pennies a gallon. My time is much better spent doing something else!
