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.

So is the $50 coupon working again for the Osgood chair with no issues? Anyone else can confirm if register will scan with no override.

cashier asked me for the coupon code. She entered it in and it worked with no override needed.
Does your store receipt just show the coupon code and $50 discount...no override or 100% price guarantee wording correct?

No price match or manager needed. Just read off the coupon number and was good to go.

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.

ummm how can you use this coupon for the 169 MSRP... when the chair is 99.00 online..

Do they match the 99.00 and then still apply the 50.00?

Got the Osgood for $50+tax. The assistant manager tried to enter the coupon normally but it would not accept it. However, she was more than happy to override the register because "if it is a mistake, it is OUR mistake, not yours." I think I may have fallen in love with her at that moment. I guess I will be visiting her often until she also realizes that the engagement ring she was wearing is a mistake as well!

Thanks OP.

Update: This will work perfectly without a managers override for the Torrent chair.

I went into my staples with coupon in hand. The associate immediately told me it won't work and asked his manager who said the same thing. I asked if he could just ring it up to see if it works and to his amazement it rang up perfectly fine. The manager then said if it works without a managers approval, sell it - so there you go. Did not try on the Osgood 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

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".

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
