    Angry Not happy with Office Max...

    All,

    Just had to vent about my experience with Office Max and my failed attempt at acquiring the Nexus 7.

    I found a 20% off coupon for any purchase at Office Max and called Wednesday to see if the location in NJ had them in stock. The salesperson said they had one left. I asked if he could save it for me and that I'd be in the store later that night to pick it up. Since I was coming from the Philly area, he agreed to hold it for me. Well, I get to the store and apparently, someone sold the device. After telling the woman at the register about how irate I was, she decides to call the manager to find out what happened. Well, the manager informs her that my name must have fallen off the box and she thought it was available for sale. Long story short, I'm now sans a Nexus 7 and Office Max doesn't seem to be getting any in before my 20% off coupon expires on Saturday.

    Not happy...

    That sucks big time, though I doubt they did it just to upset you. Can you order one online and use the coupon? Or maybe go in and explain your situation, perhaps you could get a raincheck for the device so you can still use the coupon.

    Personally I would recommend looking at GameStop, my experience with them was great. That's where I got mine and they even held the last 32gb N7 for a couple hours till I got off work and was able to pick it up. All I had to do was tell them I called earlier about the nexus and he pulled it out of a locked case for held orders. You might be paying a bit more but it was worth the extra money in my opinion. Those guys are a class act.

    Read the fine print on your coupon - I bet it excludes electronics anyway.

    I have the same coupon and it does include tablets. To the OP, try calling staples, office depot, or bestbuy and see if they'll accept a competitor coupon. Its hit or miss but you may get lucky.

    I called a local Staples store here in the Bay area and they said they would match the deal providing it was in in-store only coupon, which in this case it is This Staples store had some 16gb models but none of the 32's. He told me to check back today to see if any 32's came in. Regardless, try Staples!

    Did he say if they'd accept the coupon for the 16GB?

    Will they let your order it and pay in full now and then pick it up when it comes in?

    Go to Best Buy to price match it or another retailer.

    Actually, it states that both tablets and e-readers are included now.

    Unfortunately, both the 16gb and the 32gb models were sold out when I got to the store. The coupon was good for almost anything in store.

    Unfortunately, they won't price match a coupon for a percentage off.

    If it's the same 20% off coupon I used, it does say it includes tablets and ereaders. Bummer, hope you find one. I got lucky and just walked into an Office Max near work late today (Friday) and they had one 32gb in stock so I grabbed it. With tax it was $232.73 out the door, not a bad deal.

    It's been pretty hard to locate the 32gb model here in the Chicago area.

    I called the 1-800 # and they informed me they do not price match coupons. It also states it on the BestBuy website under the price match section.
    So you're saying I may still have a chance to get them to price match it at a local store?

    Thanks. If BestBuy won't do it, then I'll head over to Walmart and give it a try

    Went to several BestBuy and Walmart stores in my area. They all said they do not price match percentages.

    Well i guess your **** out of luck dude just buy it retail then the amount of gas you spent going to all of these places most likely is greater than the 20% off then again i can't blame you that's 50 bucks for either of them

    Yeah, when Staples had that $30.00 coupon about a week back, I tried using it at Best Buy as well and they wouldn't take it either. I take it you've called all the Office Max stores in your area?

    All the ones I called didn't have them.
    I ended up going back to BestBuy and getting it for full retail.
