Edit: Updated steps/clarification.

1) Staples has SSD-PLUS-480GB (SDSSDA-480G-G25) for $189.19.
2) Start chat and get price match approval. Price match it to Amazon $106.55; with price match it should bring down the price to $98.29.
3) Ensure you add a filler item of at least $1.71 to qualify for the $25 VCO off $100 purchase.
4) Once you have approval for price match, complete the order at FULL price with Visa Checkout to qualify for the $25 off.
5) Provide order number to rep for manual adjustment, you should see the new PM adjustments in your Order Details page.

After price match and VCO it should be around $75 before tax for the SSD. I'm not exactly sure how Staples calculate the PM but I usually end up with a better deal even from what I normally calculate it to be. So if you are worried, I would add a filler item of at least $10 so your order subtotal will remain $100+.

In my case I ended up paying $72.72 ($68.08 w/ rewards) for my SSD. Attached is my price match details. The VCO $25 off $100 gets split between all items on the order. I also had a $5 rewards coupon.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Staples has cracked down on stacking PM + coupons. They subtracted the $25 VCO discount off my price match so was unable to get the same price as the OP.

Update: With some persistence with the online chat folks I was able to get them to give me the full PM after repeatedly stating I never entered a coupon code. So YMMV

Same they don't want to apply both PM and VCO discount

After express my worry and tell the rep that my friend is able to apply both discounts on the order.
The order has been successfully placed and the final price is 80 dollar.
Thanks OP deal

Shot down on the PM + VCO on another item as well. Seems unlikely you'll get this.

You have "Provide order number to rep" as the final step. For what purpose? Shouldn't you be calling them in step # 2, so you can do the price match?

I'm not sure being "good" has as much to do with it as being lucky and/or being annoyingly persistent. I'd rather not get the LP flag.

That's what I didn't understand either. His screenshot clearly shows the pricematch in the cart.

If you get the pricematch in your cart, the VCO discount should hit with no issues, right?

No because they adjust the price AFTER you order

I'm no slump in the Staples game, trust me. If you're using chat to PM, you have to get a rep who won't adjust your PM down by $25 once they see you used VCO. They're trained to do that.
