HP 128GB x900w USB 3.0 Flash Drive $8.49 shipped at Staples B&M after PM

Staples has the HP 128GB x900w USB 3.0 flash drive listed on their website [staples.com] for 79.99. Place a kiosk order in store and check out with a cashier, using this valid 14.99 price match from Best Buy [bestbuy.com] and with their 110% price match, this comes to $8.29 plus tax, and free shipping on all kiosk orders.

Pasting the model number directly from the BB website into the search bar on Staples.com pulls up this exact drive, so verification shouldn't be an issue for more stubborn managers, but you have to do this in store since staples.com support no longer price matches online. Good luck!

staples' price $80 - bb's $15 = $65. staples does 110% price matching. 10% of $65 = $6.5. so $15 - $6.50 = $8.50.

Thats not how my Staples has ever pricematched.

If an item is $100 at staples, $10 at BB, then Staples pricematch has always been $10-10%of $10 = $9

By your calculation, it should be $100-$10= $90 110% matching 10%of$90=$9 so $10-$9=$1

I see that your calculation works for OP out the door price, but must be a bug at the store. This will never happen at any of my stores. NEVER.
Hell, the manager will say F off with a price difference like that.

Good on you OP. Glad you scored a good deal. Please continue to post. Dont be disheartened by TDs. A lot of us appreciate the heads up.

Here's how it's supposed to work

In Store Price Match Guarantee: If you find a currently available lower price on a new, identical item, show us the lower price when you buy the item at a Staples® store and we will match it, plus discount by 10% of the difference.

I thought that 10% applies to price difference. In that case, OP is correct. I think my Staples has price matched this way. Here is my previous receipt.

In my receipt, the original ink price was $42.49. It is pricematch at $31.99. The price difference is $10.50. 10% of $10.50 price difference is $1.05. Therefore, after 110% price match, $31.99-$1.05 = $30.94. $11.55 is the combination of $10.50 + $1.05).

Similarly, it worked with the Pilot Pen I order as well. It tooks off 60 cents (10% of $6 difference is 0.60).

I hope my math is correct.

Wow, good for you guys. Our Staples are very good at telling us F off, to our faces.

Stop downvoting this people... Worked so easily for me. The price match is correct. It has always been 10% of the difference. The reason for the huge difference is the price staples is selling it at vs. the competitors price. Thumbs up OP and Thank you...

P.S. Although that the Managers have the power to say no to anything/everything, there is nothing wrong in this deal. It's to the letter on price matching. You can use Amazon.com as well so it's an online to online price match. And they are so used to Amazon, there is very little chance to get declined

The problem is that Staples has no idea what their price match policy is. I've had absolutely no luck and even calling corporate they didn't realize they even had a price match policy.

It's incredible and it's made me never shop at Staples again.

I just went to staple to get a price match. After the price match, it was 8.49. With tax, I pay about 9.23...I hope to receive it in two weeks.

Can this be done on phone (with store pickup) or only in store?

I think you have to do at a kiosk for online order unless the in-store has it in stock.

Just tried it, the manager had to call in to corporate and I could hear them trying to find any reason not to but they ended up pricing it down to the $8.50 range.

some comments based on extensive other experience with staples PM:

yes, the 110% is on the difference, not on the lower price. Usually the difference is less than the lower price.

I have had many times in-store where I have to specifically ask for the 110% thing (vs. just 100%), and the cashier has to call over a manager to do it. I believe the registers are programmed to allow giving either 100% or 110% if you know what button to press. I've heard all kinds of stories / excuses depending on the store / person / item (e.g., we don't do 110% to Amazon), that it is a definite YMMV thing to get the 110%.

On the kiosk order to allow you to PM to something that the store does not regularly carry (e.g., an item that is only sold only online, the store never carries it in stock; vs. an item the store does carry but just happens to be out of) - I've done it. And then like a month later when trying to do it again, the nice lady who helped me do it the first time told me that it was not allowed and that she got in trouble for doing it for me last time. So YMMV. If the store carries these things, and just happens to be out, you should be fine.

This worked as OP said.
Able to replicate deal.

My store clerk price matched to 100% only. I had to ask him for 110%.

Bofa visa card has 10% bonus cashback for staples.
