I prefer not to pull scams for my deals. It's obviously not the intent of the price match policy for them to price match AND take a $25 coupon. If you're okay with abusing the system then go for it.
I used to think that way too. As a matter of fact when I call for the price match, I always tell them I used the 25 off 75 coupon and ask politely if it still applies. I have done this 3 times and the rep always says sure, no problem. If they had said no, I would probably have absolutely no problem with it as it seems to be a reasonable deal and, like you said, not the original intent of the coupon. But they always say no problem and who am I to argue with them.
I absolutely love Staples and spend a lot of money there even though they are 8 times further away from my house than office depot and office max.
EDIT: Just finished ordering then chatting with rep. She gave me full credit and when I mentioned coupon she said "no problem, that can remain." I also ordered water too as we can always use that and as a filler it fit nearly perfectly.
