Hey guys, I created a new thread because the other thread is outdated (a deal back in 1/31/14 for that week only), different and wrong. I figured more people should know of this product.

----------------

Staples Hyken™ Technical Mesh Task Chair, Black on sale for $129.99 ($100 off) Originally $229.99

http://www.staples.com/Staples-Hy...uct_990119 - 4.5/5 stars from 164 reviews + 5 years of warranty!

+

$50 OFF any chair regularly priced $169 or more. (In-Store Only Coupon) - ENDS 2/15 SATURDAY!

Weekly flyer coupon/ad that's located right when you walk at any Staples.
http://weeklyad.staples.com/Stapl.../promotion - Look at PAGE 3 (The 50 dollar off coupon has a picture of this same exact chair!!!!)

=

$129.99 - 50 off coupon = $79.99 + taxes

OTHER CHAIRS ALSO WORK WITH THIS COUPON, SEE WIKI FOR INFO!

---------------

Some Staples may straight out allow this instantly without any fuss while other Staples employee and managers may not be willing to give you 50 dollars off and in that case, here's a tip to make it happen:

My story:
Quote :
Came back from Staples in NYC and got it to work! I took the weekly flyer that was inside the store, turn to page 3 (which has the list of chairs for sale and next to it, the 50 dollar coupon and the picture of this chair on the coupon lol), went to front register and asked for the chair.

The lady tried to deny me initially saying it's off for "regularly" priced 169+ and the chair is 130 right now and I said, "well, this chair is regularly priced at 230 and your coupon has this chair on it."

Then she tried to deny me again but I saved a photo on my phone of the receipt (the link above by BluLotus) and said "well, my buddy at Cali was able to get it at the price on his store. You can call their store and check." She stopped arguing and manually price adjust it to 79.99!

One of the easiest Staples in-store deal I got for a while due to their picture fail coupon.

The 50 dollar coupon SHOULD work on all other chairs (that's originally 169 or over, not the current sale price), not only Hyken so try giving it a shot if you prefer other chairs.

The chairs listed on 50 dollar coupon at the flyer:

Staples Osgood chair 99.99 (reg 169.99) - 50 off = 49.99 4 out of 5 stars

Staples Coopersly chair 149.99 (reg. 249.99) - 50 off = 99.99 4.5 out of 5 stars

Staples Hyken chair 129.99 (reg 229.99) - 50 off = 79.99 4.5 out of 5 stars

Staples Baird chair 169.99 (reg 269.99) - 50 off = 119.99 4 out of 5 stars

THIS DEAL ENDS 2/15 SATURDAY!

I think the problem is the coupon is intended to be for chairs not on sale, at $169 or higher. This is the result of a bad choice of words isn't it Frown

What amazes me is they keep on making that coupon and pulling that same song and dance anyway after at least a year.

Yea I know, Staples never learn.

As for this particular coupon, it's very do-able (with stories of several successes so far) because of the fact that the coupon has a picture of this SAME EXACT CHAIR. What a bunch of fail by them lol.

So Staples can't really argue and deny us in this case because the coupon has this particular chair picture. Staples need a new PR management for ads/coupons or maybe they intentionally done this for bait and switch method, idk.

lol fair enough.

I had one of those chairs for about a week, the build quality was REALLY good for a Staples chair, but I felt it was uncomfortably small after being used to larger chairs. Too bad, it was nice! It'd be cool if they made A/B/C sizes like Herman Miller does.

I thought I was the only one that found this chair small. I tried the Hyken and the Torrent and found the Torrent much larger and more comfortable. AS much as I love a mesh chair, I think this may be a bit uncomfortable because of size.

This is a BOSS chair. Paid $120...worth every penny.

I use a Herman Miller at work...and this beats it by far.

Well, ^this^ would be somewhat a stretch Smilie. At the same time, I tried the OP chair in-store and felt pretty comfortable, especially for this money. The staples warranty on these chars is 5 years, and it works too. I just got the gas lift replaced for free by Staples after it failed after 4 years of use.

Almost all the chairs on sale are on the coupon. The osgood is $99.99 - $50 coupon = $49.99

Tip: Print the coupon from the website, since it refers to chairs that were "previously" discounted. So, "previously" means "before," not "now." Since the Hyken is on sale "now," it shouldn't be excluded.

Then, point to the picture of the Hyken on the flyer's coupon!

YMMV...but worth a shot. This is my 2nd Hyken--IMO, this is a very well-built chair that is very comfortable for my bottom. FWIW

While I agree that there may be "more" comfortable chairs like the Herman Miller chair, there are also that much more expensive and may be out of budget for many. This fits the bill that's under 100, full mesh, good back support, etc.

Maybe one day when I win the lottery, I'll start investing in 500 dollar chairs lol.

Yep, this should work on all chairs as these type of coupon allowed all chairs in the past, so it really shouldn't be YMMV but some Staples are being anal still. Anyone can try with other chairs but I only mention this particular Hyken chair since I got one myself after eyeing for it many months lol.

You can also print that section of coupon or just go to Staples, pick the weekly flyer coupon from front section and return the flyer at checkout lol.

One more thing to note, the coupon also have 3 other chairs along with Hyken which I assume those 3 other chairs will also have a greater chance to getting 50 dollar off too. I posted them on the WIKI! Take a look!

Just got back from Staples with my new chair. The girls at the register said no go must be over $169 and I told her originally $169 and pointed to chair, the asst manager came over and told me the same thing after he punched some numbers into the register, so I told him same thing and also told him that my colleague in CA got the chair at the lower price, so he adjusted and let me buy it.

The fine print does say "Excludes already-discounted chairs."

Just came back from my Staples where I ordered two Osgood chairs. Coupon would not enter at register so manager overrode with price guarantee. Thanks OP and rep.

Sure it says that hence YMMV, but take a good look at the coupon again and you see the exact picture of these chairs attached with coupon lol.
