30% Coupon Match from OD is sweet.

For those who do not have that this is what I am thinking to get the price down to $76.5:

1. Start with top cash back and buy a gift card from one of the giftcard retailers like Plasticjungle, raise, abcgiftcards, cardpool etc (Avg cash back is 3%)
Physical Cards take 3-5 Days to arrive. eGift Cards usually ariive in 6 hours max.
2. Again go to top cash back and navigate to staples. You get 5.5% cashback for purchases
3. Apply the 15$ off coupon.

Assuming a 100$ purchase, my math:
$100 - 3 - 5.5 - 15 = $76.5

If you have a points earning card, those points still count in. For example, Chase Ink Bold and Few Amex cards offer 5X points at Office Supply Stores. At a fair trade value of 1c/point you pitch in 5% more savings. But this part applies to few % only.
