To take advantage of these prices you will need to prove you are not a business traveller, en route to the airport, so you will need to provide either yr flight numbers or yr holiday booking reference. I don't think you will need to give this when you arrive at the station but you may be asked to give them on your journey from the station to the airport.
Going to stansted airport by train is great, you can sleep, read a book (even at night), play travel scrabble, or just stare out of the window... The other caveat to buying these inexpensive train tickets from the station to the airport is that there must be at least two adults travelling together. But another great advantage is that children go free. All children under five go free, and then one kidover five but under sixteen per grown up travelling by train to the airport.
be sure to leave enough time to get to stansted airport early enough to eat, shop etc, so check the times of trains from stafford station before you go. If you end up with spare time at stansted airport you can always read a book or play travel scrabble again! As you have bought your train ticket in advance, you don't need to fret about the opening hours of stafford station.
