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!

    Staples never gives me the 110% price match guarantee. While they will price match to the exact amount reflected in an Office Depot ad, they never do the 10%. Have others encountered this? I am always too embarrassed to ask them about it.

      I asked for the 110% on an item and got 100% price match. It really wasn’t worth the effort to argue. Last year I tried on a item and they said that although the items were the same, the packages weren’t, so they wouldn’t price match it. Really. I like Staples, but don’t believe their 110% price match. Sounds good, but I don’t think they plan on doing it.

    My local staples told me that you have to tell them you want the 110% guarantee. Seems a little ridiculous considering they advertise this.

    The last time I was at Staples, I was stung by a Bee! I was trying out their chairs near the back when I saw something fly by me and then Bam! Right in the back of my neck!! I had no idea what had happened! All i knew was that the back of my neck hurt & the spot kept getting larger. I actually thought it was a spider. So I gathered my children and head for the exit. I told the cashier that I thought I had been bitten by a spider or something. She says, “Oh it was probably a Bee. We have a lot of them in the back area of the store. We have been spraying and spraying and they are still here. I have gotten stung a bunch of times already.”

    I just left & haven’t returned. I don’t want to get stung again. I can’t believe they didn’t shut down & have someone come and remove them!?!? Just frightening!
