I wanted to get a laptop from Staples. Staple's price is 860 and futureshop's price is 800, but it is sold out online and only available in the stores now. (ive checked)

I called the 1 877 number and asked them to PM but the person said they only match online prices, not the store prices.... :mad: is it true..???

Thanks OP for this thread. I want to get the iPod Nano but Staples sells them for $199.83, & FS & BB only sell them for $189.99. Filled out the PM form & waiting for the code. I received the $20 off $150 Staples coupon code by email so I can't hardly wait to order.

Hey, I work in the Staples US call center. We happen to match to stores but Staples Canada is a little behind. Give them time to catch up.
For now, they probably don't match delivery to a competitor's store because the PM is currently 150%****. That being said if the competitor's delivery price is not included in the match because the match is to a store, that would end up putting Staples Canada in the poorhouse.

****(in US it's just 100% now down from 110% because it was found most people really don't care, they're just matching for convenience of getting all their items together. The few that did care about the additional discount were approximately 3% of our PMing customers who bought tons of PM'd stuff then turned around and sold the product on their own website/eBay store, so you can thank them for ruining it for everybody)

Troll... 3 year old thread bump
This is a pretty old thread and it doesn't exist anymore...not where the OP indicated it would be. Now they'll encourage you to phone. What the use? That clown shoe company will find any excuse not to price match anyway. They told me something about the item being price matched in-store at NCIX on a NCIX web sale. It made absolutely no sense to me but that was their aim. Any bunk they can pull out of their behinds to make you go away. They're called Stooples for a reason.
