Did you know that Staples offers a 110% price match guarantee?

Yes, it’s true! If you find a currently available lower price on a new and identical item, just show the Staples cashier or an associate at the customer service desk the lower price when you buy the item at Staples and they will match it plus will discount it by 10% of the difference. And if you purchase an item from Staples and tell them within 14 days that you found that item at a lower price in their stores or online at, they’ll refund the difference!

    Just wanted to say thank you for all the school supply deals and Penny Deals. One year ago I had no clue I could of saved soo much on school supplys and backpacks plus Uniforms. It all adds up in the end but I was able to spend half of what I normally do. Thanks Collin and The Hip2Save Team for everything that you do. My kiddos will start Monday with every supply needed plus extra for their Teachers 😊 I will also make Christmas baskets with more Supplies that I had left over for their Teachers 😊

    I price match at Staples for the first time yesterday. It was so easy that I can’t believe I’ve never done it before. The cashier was able to take care of everything with have a delay in having to call someone over. One quick look at the office depot ad and I was able to leave staples with The sharpie 12 counts for $2.30 and the expo marker four pack four $.70. I don’t know if there’s a limit because I only purchased four items. Thanks Collin

    • Niki

      I love love love my staples or perhaps just the gentleman that works there . He is so nice and accomadating. He let me buy 30! Yep he said the limit was 30 because it’s for a good cause and I even got the teacher discount. I told him I wasn’t a teacher and he said I noticed you coming in and I’m aware you give to your children’s teacher so if I can’t purchase these because I don’t have kids to donate to I am glad someone is 🙂 so thank you thank you because I wouldn’t ever have had the knowledge to do so with out your page!
