You will be price-matching this listing : http://www.staples.com/msi-GTX-97..._IM1ZG0291

Phone Number for Staples is 800-333-3330

Price-match it to one of the following stores.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6814127850

https://www.amazon.com/MSI-GAMING...B00TPLKR7Q

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/pro...aming.html

Also fill out the $20 rebate here [ssl-images-amazon.com]

This is a HUGE ymmv as it entirely depends on the Rep approving it since the difference is so big. You may have to call back and try again if you can't get the rep to approve it.


Apparently none of you know how to do math.

110% Price-Match works on the DIFFERENCE between the prices. You will be matched to the $300 Price + 10% of the $1300 Difference, so you will get another $130 off.

Here are some pics of a guy that got it to work

Somebody got a little excited...I see $299 from the other sites?
Someone doesn't know how to do math. 110% price-match matches the DIFFERENCE between the 2, that is a $1300 difference so you will be matched to $300 + $130 off.

So did you actually do it or are you just pointing it out?

I don't got the $ to do it but I just added some proof from the guy that did, said he had to call back once to get a rep to match it as the first one wouldn't.

I think the thumbs down is coming from people who aren't familiar with Staples 110% price match program. I'm in the middle of talking with a rep about it now and I'm hoping I can get it.

That's what i'm guessing as they probably think it's 10% off the matched price(which would only be $30) and not 10% off the difference(which is the $130).

How do prices like this even happen lol. Are they being deceptive hoping to capitalize on someone who doesn't know better or is this a mistake?
