Use of any Staples rewards certicates will DECREASE the 25% rewards received back.

My son has the Ti-84 Plus CE Silver edition and he says the CE version screens are MUCH easier to read.

FYI: Two year unconditional replacement offer was 19.99.

When calculating a price match, we’ll deduct any available Staples coupons, Staples rebates (instant, easy or mail-in) and manufacturer rebates from the Staples price to arrive at a net price.

For example, if you buy an item from us for $100 and we offer a $20 instant rebate, the net price is $80. If another company’s price is $80 or more, we will not match the price.

Another example: If you buy an item from us for $159 and you have a $30 coupon, the net price is $129. If another company’s price is $125, your price match would be $4 off our net price of $129. Dollars-off coupons will be proportionally deducted from the prices of items in your order.

The Staples rebate is supposed to be taken into consideration when determining Staples pre PM price:
124.99
-15.00 rebate
=109.99 after rebate price
-24.19 110% price match (109.99-88=21.99*1.1=24.19)
=85.80 after PM price
-21.45 back in rewards
=64.35 net

  That is why YMMV is in the title.  My mileage was actually as reported.

Which I would have accepted without comment if the reason for the YMMV was included as well as the impact on the net price if the PM was done correctly.

  SELECT Other Sellers and Select WalMart, price is still $88.

how do you get the $88 one to show up as the main one on the page (instead of just one on a list)?

Actually this is extremely YMMV as the Staples store the OP dealt with does not know how to correctly PM (for this week) per corporate policy:


124.99 Price at Staples B&M
-15.00 Easy Rebate
-27.50 in 25% Rewards (based on 109.99)

---------
$82.49

Thus no PM

Where in the terms of the price match policy does it state that Staples will factor in back in rewards amounts?

  Read the post by "Anyplace" the 25% rewards coupon used is a rebate issued the following month.

  Look up the definition of Rebate. Just because Staples uses a different name for it, doesn't change what it is.

PruHTP said:   Look up the definition of Rebate. Just because Staples uses a different name for it, doesn't change what it is.
While I suppose that in general a reward is a rebate of sorts, in the case of Staples offers they are distinct and separate types of offers. Staples does not intermingle the terms. When Staples notes rebate, it means an offer advertised as a rebate. It does not mean an offer advertised as a reward.

  When looking in the case of a included PM, it is looked at as a rebate as you are reimbursed funds related to the purchase. Thus by Staples policy a PM considers both items to come up with the net price since this item starts off with a 25% coupon that generates it. Normal rewards don't start off as a coupon as they are based on spending habits. Understand the difference?

  If their registers (programmers) were smarter (coming from a programmer) they could stop this type of transaction without human interaction.   I made my purchase at Staples and I will continue to give them my business when the have a great 110% price match guarantee applied correctly or incorrectly it still was the best deal.

I understand that you do not understand how Staples works and thus how Staples ' PM policy works.

At Staples, the words REBATES and REWARDS have meanings specific to Staples. They are effectively terms of art. The meanings are not interchangeable. When Staples notes that REBATES are taken into account when determining the PM, Staples means REBATES and not REWARDS. In fact, Staples notes what it means by REBATES:

  • Staples rebates (instant, easy or mail-in) and manufacturer rebates

A REWARD is not an instant rebate, it is not an easy rebate, it is not a mail-in rebate and it is not a manufacturer's rebate.

Nor does Staples consider it a COUPON discount. While the 25% back in rewards offer is activated by a coupon and a rewards number being attached to the purchase, Staples does not consider the 25% back in REWARDS amount a COUPON discount amount -- Staples considers it a REWARDS amount -- and so once again it is not deducted when determining the price match.

  I have ~30 years of experience of dealing with Staples. I am not an employee of theirs, but I do have copies of their Operations manuals. A 25% off coupon that results in a voucher for a X dollar amount is a rebate.

What exactly does the manual state? Because as you have related it -- 25% off coupon, voucher for X dollar amount -- it does not apply to this situation.

After all is said and done with rewards and rebates, this deal worked as I explained. Yes YMMV.
