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.
