Thread Details

EDIT: Leaped before I really looked. Last time a lot of people had problems with the coupon not being accepted, so might not be worth the effort this time. I only read the first post from the previous thread (at first) and he didn't mention the issues. Frown Many others did report getting it to work, but took a little effort. Either the code had to be entered manually, or have manager over-ride. The coupon does say it's not good on 'previously discounted chairs', but that's not how I'd describe instant savings discount. So YMMV. (Considering the problems last month with the unclear wording and managers calling for clarification, you'd think someone at Staples corporate would have pulled their head out of their %@# and changed it... but no, exactly the same this time.)
...

Noticed today that Staples has the Osgood or Torrent chairs for $99.99 (reg 169.99) and a coupon for $50 off any regularly priced chairs $169 or more coupon.

Osgood, black [staples.com]
Osgood, brown [staples.com]
Torrent, black [staples.com]

This is the same deal from last month essentially, so should work the same, but haven't tested it.

Check HERE [staples.com] for a copy of the $50 coupon. I got it in from my coupon wallet on Staplesrewardcenter.com. Coupon code 88455, exp 3/23/13.
While the coupon does exclude using any others too, I imagine it should still work with the $5 off $25 Shazam coupons, if the cashier will accept it.

Absolutely nothing you said here is true. Everything you state contradicts every post about the people that replicated this deal. "it doesnt matter which chair" Incorrect. Based on a managers attitude and what said, That is YMMV. If your statement was correct this post wouldn't exist
you must read and count like your child to see the ratio of how many posts said that they could get the deal without manager's override vs how many got it straight.

"it doesn't matter which chair" applied to these 2 chairs because the question asked about these 2 chairs. their system is fixed in such the way that as long as the chairs got "already discounted" then the $50 coupon can't be applied. either some stores still run the old POS or the changes have not applied to all their POS. but the coupon IN GENERAL will not work.

Based on the responses, there may be a chance to get the torrent chair with the coupon. Either the system was not coded for the Torrent chair or as microkelvin has suggested it is an old model POS. Put one on reserve just now before the pricing updates. If it happens to be on sale online tomorrow for less I will go from PM. Not listed as on sale this week in flier. Coupon should scan for 2 days after the fact. Willing to give the coupon a try in the morning. Will report back.

I bought the torrent chair and a samsung tab 2. Used 10% off tablet coupon, a app check in coupon for a free bottle of windex, $10 off $75 app check in coupon, and the $50 off any chair $169 or more.

So you got all that for $3?
Please educate me. What are the 5 diff discounts on the chair?

Osgood
Let me know if you got the torrent to work. Both were good chairs, I will go back. System at both stores denied the coupon for the Osgood
I posted a pic of my receipt. I was able to get the torrent chair with coupon. No override or anything needed.

it doesn't matter which chair. their system is designed to deny any $50 off coupon if the chairs are "already discounted". i dont know how people got it rung up straight without manager approval. but their systems are fixed and their coupon term is fixed to "already discounted" instead of "previously discounted". the managers who overrode this were either very dumb or wan't very intelligent to notice that the coupon term has been more clear than "previous discounted".

No manager was need the coupon worked for the torrent chair.
