Staples - No More Residential Delivery for "High Risk" electronics
[QUOTE]Please be advised that we are unable to deliver your order to a residential area due to security. We can have it delivered to a store location so the card holder can provide photo id and credit card. Please advise how you would like to proceed with the order. Your order will remain on hold for 48hrs. Please reference order 54053xxxxx[/QUOTE]
Called in today. Apparently staples has changed their residential delivery policy. "High Risk" items (he specifically mentioned computers, laptops, tablets) can now only be delivered for in store pick up, where you must present the credit card used to purchase.
This is apparently in response to a growing problem they are having with fraud.
So basically, it wipes staples off my order list. Nearest staples is 30K away, and I used to use the specifically for their free delivery. I order quite a bit from them. I asked if it was anything specfic to me or my order, and they said that it is not - everything is fine with the order, it's just that this is their new policy.
