Caution: people are reporting their order statuses and statements say they are charged $299 even though the screen at time of submitting order says $149.99, so this probably does not work. I have not ordered one myself. Original post below:
It looks like Staples made a mistake by not requiring a body purchase to get the discount. Act fast before they discover the mistake.

Big green for you, OP.
I'm in for the 75-300 lens. Total cost after coupons, tax and FatCash = $105.75!!
EDIT: When I checked my order status it shows that the coupon was removed and I was billed the full price. Looks like I'll be canceling the order.

150$ for a 55-250? I ordered one, should go nicely with my old 20D. I would have gone with the 70-300 IS but it was was out of stock 6/15/13 @ 8:10AM EST. Thanks OP + GREEN!

I ordered one as well, but if you log back into your account and look at the statement it says I was charged 299 plus tax, even though it said 150 when I hit submit. Did not get a confirmation email yet. Anyone else see the same thing?
Edit: Received an email stating the order was placed on hold and will be shipped at full price if not cancelled by Monday at 2pm. Will cancel.
I have no email conf yet, and I see the same in my past orders on Staples. 318$ Probably get an email saying coupon is invalid and they are canceling order but I'm letting it go until then! If there's any griping I have a copy of my receipt for return.
Its valid only with the purchase of a camera body...
Save $150 with purchase of SKUs 927344, 927346, or 188085. Add coupon code 30082 to your cart to receive extra savings!

Assuming this is the non IS version, canceling your order was the right thing to do. The 55-250 is a much superior lens (IMHO).Unless you are consistently shooting with a tripod, the 55-250 is what you want.
I canceled my Staples order for the non-IS 70-300 lens. This deal at 42nd Street is actually a little better for me than the Staples one. Tax savings more than makes up for the $9 price difference for me.

I canceled the order after calling the customer service. The coupon has been deleted on the order.
