Update: I not only go the $75 off coupon on the purchase I made today, but I went back to the Office Depot where I purchased the first one a few days ago and they gave me the $75. No hesitation or hassle in either store. BTW, one store was in Eden Prairie, MN, the other was Roseville, MN -- on opposite ends of the Twin Cities metro area.
Just came back from local OD, they have 3 in stock but manager refused to honor the coupon, he said they called Staples and Staples do not have same model, so they won't match the coupon.
So it really up to the store manager to take the coupon or not.
Good luck though. The store where has it is in zip 60173.
This is unfortunate as the coupon was for "any Windows 8/RT laptop". It was not model specific. Plus Staples also has good deals the coupon would've compounded on. For example:
Plus the Lenovo Z580 (with better specifications) they do have would've been brought fairly close in price to OD's G580.
It's not as though Staples put the coupon out there instead of putting their laptops on sale. They put their laptops on sale with comparable discounts to OD and then had a coupon in addition too.
Quote from AppleC :
This seems possibly better/easier than just Dual booting W7 (since it might have problems with too many partitions) which I was planning on doing. Wait it seems like only Windows 8 "Pro" can downgrade. Hmmm yeah I really just need the instructions from that past guy who switched to W7 normally
Dual booting (having W7 installed while still having W8 as well) doesn't void the one year warranty right?
What is your reason for wanting to use something other than Windows 8? I'm personally not looking forward to it (and don't want to get into a debate with other users about it like you've probably seen here & there), but it's Microsoft we're talking about so I might as well get it over with. If I can't stand it there are other shells that can be used.

Bought 2 back on Monday, 2/18/13, and then went to two different Office Depot's last night to get my receipts adjusted by honoring the Staples $75 off coupon. Thank goodness the two Office Depot's were less than a mile apart from each.
This was in Denver/Glendale, CO, by the way! The store manager were nice and upfront in honoring the coupon. I simply went to two because of the coupon stating "1 per customer."
I am in your boat, I called and they straight told me the Staples coupons were fake and they would not accept them, the guy repeatedly told me they were fake and that Staples did not put them out.
I almost called OfficeDepot cooperate while in the presence of the manager that claimed the decree to verify it. Decided I didn't want to take the time or give them my business. Bought the Toshiba from Staples instead.
