would it work to buy something that is over $200 and use a $30 off $200 coupon and then request a price match after i get the item, which would bring the price down below $200. Would i still get to keep the $30 off $200 coupon on the order?

Also, what would happen it i buy something for $150 and then throw something in the cart to bring the price over $200 , so i can use a coupon, and then when i get the order return the extra item. will they subtract $30 from the refund?

Did you read the original post??

-If you want to apply a dollar off coupons, you can too, but you have to make sure the coupon is valid on the pricematched price.

Awesome post ;) I just submitted one... do they do these only on business days or weekends too? Oh ya... and what if the instore price is the same as the price match price, but the online price is a lot higher to do the pricematch with? (example is the X 530 speakers, which are $89 in store same as FS, but $139 online, and I want to pricematch FS's $89)

From what I know, they only do it Monday - Saturday. For online PM's, as long as the online price is the higher price they will approve it if its legit.

IMPORTANT INFO:

Starting Sept. 1st Staples will be changing their PM policy. They will now be offering 110% instead of the 150%.

I work there so I know. ;)

hey I got a couple of questions, I ordered the item first and then sent in the PM application. (stock was an issue)
This was done at 11:30 PM, how long does it take for Staples CSRs to reply to me on my PM?
And say they grant my PM, do I have to do anything else now or will they do it all for me? and not charge the actual amount but the amount after PM on my CC.
And if they don't grant my PM, am I stuck with the product? or will they give me options to cancel the order?

yes, you reply to the order confirmation email with ur PM number and quote
or you can call them. I usually like to order first, and quote my order number in the PM request. It makes things faster cuz sometimes I dont need to reply back at all.
