[Staples] $100 PSN card for $80 using today's coupon

Use that coupon and get 2 x $50 PHYSICAL PSN CARDS.

Also don't forget ebates.

I posted this because I didn't see anybody else bothering to make a dedicated post for this.
You can visit the Staples coupon thread to get the coupon (If you do not have one).

Used the $20 off $100 on PSN cards and another newsletter signup $10 off $100 to add another $20 PSN card. So $120 for 90 bucks with ebates and air miles applied.

Here's a question, why the hell do they charge taxes on it? Can I get that corrected? No chat available, will try later.

There should not be tax charged on PSN cards but Staples incorrectly charged $10 in taxes after the coupon was applied when I ordered.
Not much of a deal in that case.

There is not supposed to be, but it is giving me this:

Merchandise Total : $100.00
Coupons/Rewards : -$20.00
Shipping: Free
Estimated GST (or HST): $1.00
Estimated PST: $1.40
Total : $82.40

Even so, I'll take it. Great deal. Almost US prices :)

$10.40 saved and I didn't have to get up off my couch.

My total was 90.40 after the tax was applied in Ontario.
The total I had before the tax was also $82.40

Only saved about $10 and have to wait for shipping.
Not much of a deal considering Staples sends their own couriers to deliver items most of the time.

I doubt I would be at home when they try to deliver.

Just realized today's coupon only excludes the following: other coupons, Bose products, clearance, past purchases. In other words it did NOT state it excludes gift cards.

Ordered PSN cards before from staples and was not charged tax, this time I was. Gonna cancel if they don't take the tax off...just over $10 of savings isn't much of a deal.

What are you gonna do, call them and have them adjust it? Have you had success with that before?

I called in to cancel the order. The shipping date was estimated as July 11th which is really unreasonable anyway.

Waiting in the que took about 5 minutes.

Wish it would just work for codes. You can also pick it up within 2 hours if delivery is an issue.

EDIT: nvm pickup not available on this gift card

FWIW - in the past with GC orders (GAP discount previously for example), the initial receipt/confirmation always have taxes included, but was never charged taxes on the final charge to CC

Btw...is anyone else getting this message?
"Promotion not applied: Required item(s) are not in the cart and/or minimum purchase amount has not been met."
