Bargain of the Week

Keurig OfficePro #145 Coffeemaker -- $31.24 Net After Promotions

Here is a crazy deal good through May 3, while quantities last. The Keurig OfficePro 145 normally sells for $129.99, but Staples stores (ONLY) has it on sale for $99.99. (Yes, it is slightly cheaper online, but coupons don't apply there.). They also have a breakroom coupon for 25% off any one item, a coupon for 25% back in Staples rewards, and a $25 gift card via Easy Rebate. So you can walk out of the store paying $99.99 - 25% = $74.99 plus tax, and get back $43.75 in Staples credit.

Get $30 Off Certain $60 Purchases at Staples

Here's another crazy deal that is kind of a scavenger hunt at and phone orders too. (Not good in their retail stores.) Buy at least $60 of "retail store supplies" and with coupon code 58112, get $30 off your order. One per customer, expires 5/3. This thread will give you ideas of what items qualify.
