[Dell] Canon SD1100IS for $159.99 -> $139.99 at Dell.ca

Isn't as cheap as it was before for the mocha colour (149.99) but it's still cheaper than FS or BB....

EDIT: The Champagne one is now 139.99:

it needs to be a brick and mortar store to price match at FS/BB not an online store..

Not sure how easy will be to PM this at BB or FS since they don't have it in this colour (not seeing it on-line at least, but maybe is avail. in store).
However, I had this camera PMed at Staples (Item Number 750079 for $179.82), and used the $20 off $150 coupon for a total of ~$136 plus tax :D

Hi CFRTim, can you tell me how to PM this camera at Staples and use the coupon? I thought the coupon can only be used online(?). Can I go to a Staples store and ask them to PM and just read them the coupon code? (I don't have the actual coupon).
Thanks in advance.

Last time I tried that, they charged that damn $15 delivery charge plus they said I couldn't use the coupon because now it was below $150 total...Are you supposed to wait a while before you PM or something?? What's the protocol...

I did my PM over the phone, and here is how.

Dell price $159, Staples $179.82 ->
(179.82-159)-%10=2.082
159-2.082=156.918 -> this would be the PMed price
156.918-20coupon=136.918 final price before tax

The $20off $150 copun I get weekly in mail email box, and it doesn't say it's for online use only, and I just told him the numbers on it. Also, I did not mention this coupon until the very end when he quoted me the PMed price of $156.92. Shipping is free on orders over $50 before tax
I hope this helps you guys out

Good luck!

Well, I just called them to place the order, but they said they will have to charge me $15 delivery because it is a PM price. Free delivery doesn't apply to Price matching. So, I cancelled. I'll stop by either FS or BB tonight to see what they can do.
Thanks for your help CFRTim! :)

Sorry to hear that, but it doesn't make any sense to me. I still got free delivery.
136.92 +Tax was $154.72, that's what I paid, I even called back to confirm.
Here is what the Staples policy has to say about that:
"For internet and delivered purchases, the competitor’s next day shipping and handling fees will be added to the competitor’s price to make a fair comparison against our price.If no shipping and handling charges are readily available in the advertisement, a flat fee of $15 will be added to the competitor price."
IF is the key word here, but Dell has no shipping fees, and the Staples CSR can check that when looking up Dell.ca and doing the check-out on the product. I guess it depends from CSR to CSR

the coupon code only works once, you need to get your own.

and whoever priced matched it at staples and got to use the coupon is damn lucky.

I tried Thursday and the wonderful guy I got tried repeatedly to convince me that THEIR champagne SD1100 IS was somehow different then Dells, apparently some mystical manufacturers numbers where different, or course only which he could see.

But it got better, apparently they have a dedicated "price match dell" guy at staples, who's only job is to check price matches with dell, and I guess they have instant access to dells inventory because he told me now its out of stock at Dell, literally 5min later.

I was pretty pissed to say the least.

and i have this damn $20 off $150 i wanna use to get a new P&S

Try calling again and see what happens. It really is the luck of the draw on who you get.

Check out the STaples coupon thread on this site and beg for one. People who have them will often PM you a code you can use.

Ahh I see, I did it in another order, I had to apply the coupon first (since people had posted it on the thread and didn't PM it to me (still waiting for coupons of my own)) and so after price match it was below $150 and they were saying that I wasn't allowed to get use it unless I paid over $150 total in products..

Thanks though! Now I know :P.
