Or use OD $10 off $50 45721251 and get 25 cases for $40.70 ( $ .067/bottle)
yes, true, but Staples doesn't require a "huge" order if all you need are 3-4 cases. Plus this deal is intended for those of us 1) sitting on gift cards or rewards to cash out on stuff and/or don't want to mess with a subscription service.
Granted about being able to use the rewards, but if you have no rewards/gift cards you can order as little as one 1-case with subscribe at OD and have it shipped free and cancel online just like Amazon SS's. Most importantly, not have to deal with "live" Staples Reps people ! Wasn't TC'ing...great deal either way !
How long can unopened bottles of water be stored? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which regulates the bottled water industry, does not require a shelf life for bottled water. Bottled water can be used indefinitely if stored properly.
How should I store the water? Bottled water should be stored in a cool (i.e. room temperature), dry environment away from sources of odor, such as household cleaning products, solvents such as gasoline, paint thinners and other toxic or odorous materials, and away from direct sunlight. A partially consumed bottle should be capped when not being consumed.
And remember, this is not spring water, this is just tap water that they have bottled. Personally, I never understood why you would buy "Purified Water" and not just take your own tap water and fill up bottles. Spring water is one thing (I personally find it tasting much better than tap water, and I know there are people here that will scream they both taste the same, to each their own)but purified water makes no sense.

There are MANY municipalities in this country that while the tap water is safe to drink, its taste leaves much to be desired. If you are lucky enough to have city or well water that is good tasting, then this deal is not for you. However if you don't, not only is this a great deal, but you don't have to lug those couple of cases every week from the store.

Could probably call in tomorrow (or later) for more...Or go to kiosk in-store. Office Depot BM sale ad, says limit 2 per person/business, but OD let me order 10-cases on subscription delivery.
wfay said: Sorry for missing something obvious perhaps, but why does this deal not work in-store? Or are you saying the big advantage of ordering it online/phone is to avoid lugging all that water home yourself?
Staples stores do not carry the Nestle water, that's why. (in my area anyway)

While picking up 2 packages of 5 reams of paper (I won't chance it and call it a case or half a case) and photo paper, I picked up 2 cases of water (yes, in addition to the 5 I ordered earlier through Staples). Not sure why, but deposit of .05 wasn't charged when I called in the order.
I just placed an order for 25 cases. Thanks OP! Can't beat under 7 cents a bottle delivered! Which is even better in Oregon, because we get 5 cents per bottle back in deposit when we return them to the store. Effectively I am paying less than 2 cents a bottle.
back in the 90s I went into a Staples in mesa AZ and the mgr wouldn't do the price match even though they called wal mart to get the price. They told me it was to low and they would lose money. They were pretty rude to me.
I've never set foot in another Staples or buy anything from them. I'll get my own bottled water at costco.
