HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 Wireless Color Inkjet All-in-One Printer $70 after PM - Staples YMMV

$70.00
+3 Deal Score
9,810 Views
I was looking for a price match on the HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 to use the VISA checkout (VCO) promo, but got a better deal. This is what I did:

1. Called Staples at 800-333-3330.
2. Selected the option for other questions.
3. Asked for a price match with Amazon on Staples item #2091478. Staples [staples.com] has a list of $199.99 with a sale price of $129.99. Amazon [amazon.com] has it for $99.99.

The rep told me that with the price guarantee I could order the printer for $70. Not sure how she calculated that, but it seemed like a better deal than VCO so I agreed to order it via phone. Shipping is free for rewards members. A screenshot of the order summary is attached. The criteria to get $70 is not clear, so YMMV.

No other offers (including VCO) could be applied. Yet accrued Staples rewards could be used for payment, which can't be used for the first $100 on purchases with the VCO promo.

The HP 8710 has 4.1*/5 on 80 reviews at Amazon where it is the #4 seller in Electronics > Computers & Accessories > Printers > Inkjet Printers. It replaced the popular HP 8610, which had 4.2*/5 on 2,592 reviews.

before anyone jumps on this, see how cheap you can get the 8720. Even if you pay a little more up front, the amount you save over time will more than make up for it. I work at an office supply store. the 8620 and 8640 can use the 960 (I think) cartridge for black. it is only ten bucks more but yields 1000 more pages.

I think you got lucky somehow,even with extra 10% with list price $199.99 it would be $89.99.

The HP 8720 uses 952/956 cartridges vs 950/941 for the HP 8710. I don't see a deal history at SD for the HP 8720. Current price for the HP 8720 is $240 at Amazon and Best Buy, so it requires a significantly higher investment than the $70 for the HP 8710.

You're probably correct. I didn't question the Staples rep how she calculated $70 so the deal should be tagged as YMMV.

IMO Staples shouldn't block VCO after a price match. That would lower the printer price to $75 without the 10% bonus, still lower than than the recent $88 at Frys.

Actually the 8720 is $199 right now at Staples, OfficeMax, etc.

Does the 8710 print borderless? I just picked up the new 8740 yesterday and I can't figure out how to print a document borderless to save my life. HP's tech support can't figure it out for shit either. This is a must-have feature for my intended use.

Did you use a coupon to bring the HP 8720 down to $199? I mentioned Amazon and Best Buy prices because the Staples [staples.com] and OfficeMax [officedepot.com] sites currently show the HP 8720 at $300.

The specs [hp.com] indicate the HP 8710 supports borderless, but I have not tried it. Our main use is printing reports and business forms.

Thank you so much. I did the same call and ask for a price match. They came back with a price of $73.49, so I didn't quibble, I just shut up and took the deal.

How about we skip all this, walk into a store and purchase a 8620 (YMMV) (159210) for 69.50. Apply the 25% back in Rewards (code 16119) and net it for 52.12?
