So I was looking for a deal on decent graphing calculator and found this yesterday. Searched this and did not see it posted already.

TI-84 Plus CE is the top end of the TI-83/84 graphing calculator series. It has color display, shows charts and images, comes in multiple colors (Black, Silver, Blue, Gold, White, Purple and Red, maybe more) - not to mention it's permitted for use in both SAT and ACT. TI-84 Plus CE normally sells for about $125, but more importantly it's rare to see this model go on sale for less than $90.

So the TI-84 Plus CE is currently on sale for $88 at Walmart - this in itself is a great deal. To make this sweeter, go to a Staples store and pricematch to Walmart.

Brings the price down to 124.99 - 40.69 (110% pricematch policy) = $84.30 + Tax
Staples currently (8/28 - 9/3) is running a $15 easy rebate on TI-84 Plus to bring this down to $69.30 + Tax

So here's the YMMV part - Staples also has an in-store $20 coupon (coupon code 91460) for TI-84 Plus that can bring this down to $49.30 + Tax. I got shot down on the coupon + price match, but it depends on the manager you get Wink

It should be noted that both Staples and Walmart atleast sell the Black, Silver and Blue versions. So atleast those colors should be good. Walmart has the purple version, but I couldn't find it at Staples. And I don't see Walmart selling the other colors found at Staples. So YMMV on the other colors. I bought the Blue version and there were no issues with pricematch.

The whole deal is YMMV and against corporate policy. They are supposed to take into account the rebate when they do the price match. By doing this, you run the risk of having whatever cashier/ CSR reprimanded for violating policy as well as the risk having your rewards account/ address blacklisted by Loss Prevention.

Are you guys sure this is still eligible for $15 easy rebate after price match?

I just bought this from Staples with price match to Walmart - $88. Even though system print the rebate form, cashier simply crumpled it and put it in trash. She just gave me receipt which says promotional price as $88. I just want to go ahead and apply online easy rebate, but not sure whether it goes through.

The cashier didn't give me any rebate receipt either and I thought they stopped printing those. I applied for the $15 easy rebate online, the same day I purchased it. Status is showing as validation in progress. I didn't even knew this rule existed when I bought it.

Anyway, I remember seeing in other Staples threads where people have gotten their rebates after price match.

Rebate links are in the Staples product links in the original post.

Please post here once you hear back on your rebate status. Thanks.
