    With the $1/2 Bic coupon from their Facebook page, 2 free pens!

    • wendy

      there was also $1/2 Bic coupons in the smartsource a couple weeks back.

    • pcothran

      actually 4 pens free!

      • Jessica

        its a limit of 2

        • pcothran

          A limit of 2 packs, but there’s 2 pens in a pack, so it’s actually 4 free pens 🙂

  2. Rachel

    I didn’t realize you could use man.coupons at staples. Or is this vary by store?

    • pcothran

      Yes, Staples has always taken mfr cpns…at all locations.

    • gabriela

      I actually spoke with a staples representative that told me they do not accept coupons but it depends on the manager

  3. Leah

    They wont take a mfr. coupon for the purell last week ….. Suppostly because it was on sale ?

  4. Joan

    I had a sales associate tell me that 2 weeks ago when I tried to use the $1.00/2 Bic coupons. I had done the exact same transacion the day before with no problem and told him that. He called the manager over who processed my entire purchase with all coupons, no problem.

  5. Heather

    I just got back from Staples trying to do the BIC Velocity pens deal. I was told I could not use the coupon because it states not valid with any other offer. I stated I had used a MFG coupon with a sale price before and not had an issue. The cashier then asked some co-workers who said the same thing the cashier had told me. I then said I haven’t had this issue before. She then called the manager and told them I had a coupon for $1/2 products that were on sale for $0.50 each. The manager also said I was not allowed to use the coupon. So I had them take the pens off of my order. As much as I appreciate her efforts in checking before denying the coupon use, it’s still dissapointing as I’ve never heard of not being able to pair a coupon with a sale 🙁

    • Lisa

      I can totally relate! I have used mfg. coupons paired with sales many times but depends on the sale associate and their coupon policy. Sometimes I have no problems using the mfg. coupons with sales and other times I have problems. I think its rediculous! I wish it was consistent during each shopping trip! It’s so frustrating when your shopping and going to checkout, your told something else! When you just did it the other day!

  6. Michelle

    Same as many others…They told me I couldn’t use the Bic $1/2 with the sale price. I emailed Staples about it. Since it’s seems like a widespread problem, I doubt I’ll get anywhere, but it’s worth a try.

    • Heather

      Definitely let us know what they come back with. Depending on their response, maybe it will help if the rest of us having issues can contact them as well.

        • Michelle

          Thanks Heather. I figured they would say it’s up to the managers discretion. They haven’t gotten back to me yet.

    • Michelle

      The office of the president of Staples emailed me back. No satisfaction regarding the use of coupons on sale items though. Here’s the email.

      “I am writing to follow-up with you in regards to the difficulties you experienced as a result of your attempt to do business with Staples. Please accept our apologies for the problems you encountered with your Bic coupon.

      As a gesture of goodwill, attached, please find a Staples Courtesy Coupon for $2.00 to be used on your next Staples purchase.”

    Can always pricematch at Walmart and use coupons.

    • Michelle

      In a perfect world yes, but many times Walmart won’t carry that exact item (at least for the “hot” school supply deals). I believe that they carry four packs of Bic Velocity, but not the 2-packs. Of course YMMV.

      • pcothran

        Yeah, you’re right, Michelle. I went to WM tonight and they didn’t have those pens. What about Office Max & Office Depot? Don’t they pricematch??

        • Michelle

          I’ve heard Office Depot does if you bring the ad in, but I’ve never tried it myself.
