    Just an update...went to office depot and asked, and he pulled out their corporate policy that was just sent out. They will only honor the coupon on the Acer and the Playbook. I ended up with the Acer because of this.

    yeah I went to office depot to and they said no. Showed me the same email policy dated 07/21/11. So i went to a bunch of different BB's and found one that accepted it. Plus I got it for 299 and $20 in store gift card + 0% apr for six months. One question tho, the headphone jack hole was cut super close to the frame edge looks like its gonna possibly break if im not careful, anyone wit this issue?

    Staples Coupon for $100 Off Tablets through 7/30/11

    Here are are the details and success stories at Android Central: Staples giving $100 off select tablets, what will you be buying?

    The comments tell of taking the Staples coupon to nearby Office Max, Frys, Office Depot, Best Buy, etc. for their price match guarantees. Some Staples stores are struggling to re-stock each day. Here is the coupon that must be printed and taken to a local store:

    $100 OFF any tablet with this coupon. Limited exclusions apply. Models vary by store.

    The $399 Acer Iconia along with the Asus Transformer are now $299 until 7/30/11. The $499 Samsung Tab 10.1 and Motorola Xoom at 32GB are now $399.

    Remember that this is a fishing expedition. Don't call local stores. Go to them. Check their website and find the stores that have your tablet instock and go there.

    Lots of people are having success getting price matches by walking into local competitors. Others are checking every local Staples each day when new shipments are coming in.

    You will prevail.

    Now the main Staples web site is showing the Asus out of stock. I believe they are doing that on purpose . They already sold the unites they wanted and that was it.

    The website has been showing it out of stock for days now. Since this coupon first got mentioned here, it has been out of stock every time I have checked

    It seems to me that Staples is showing these in stock after store hours and out of stock when the stores are open. I have gone to the Staples site late at night and they will sometimes show in stock; then during the day they are out. Coincidence ????

    I managed to find an Office Depot with one Acer Iconia tab in stock. They couldn't hold it for me, so I got in my car and drove there as fast as I could. When I arrived, the guy in front of me literally bought it seconds before. I was pissed!! But the store manager did me a solid... She found a few up in North Jersey and asked to have one shipped to her store. I gave her my name and number and she promised to call me the moment it arrived.

    Now the question is, keep the Acer or look elsewhere for the Asus Transformer??

    Use their in-store look-ups online. There are still a few left but you may have to drive a bit to pick it up.

    How did you get to the in-store lookup, It says its only available for delivery so can't do in store lookup. I talked to a guy on chat and he says it wont be available in stores and not available online for 5-10 business days

    Anyone know any other places to look for this cheaper/accepting the coupon. Funny now that Best Buy has it for a whole $5 off haha

    can confirm, just got back from a Detroit area Office Depot and the guy had no problems matching it.

    Also, they do tax after rebate too so that was nice

    I'm in California and all the Staples stores around me say they don't have the product in-stores and best buy tells me that their price match policy does not include coupons or discounts - only the standard price. Office depots in my area are also only honoring it for the blackberry playbook & the acer iconia. What do they have against asus?!

    I thought I was way late in the game to even try, but the OD in Racine, WI practically thanked me for bringing in a Staples coupon. The manager gladly accepted it and made a stabbing motion with his pen as he confessed to me that he loves sticking it to Staples whenever he can, lol. He even knocked off an additional $50 so I walked out of the OD with the TF for $249!!

    I took the last 16gb and there are 3 32gb TFs left, but the guy made it sound like he'd take rain checks for the 16gb TF so if you're near the area, GO GO GO!

    I'm in san diego, best buy honored mine, but at another best buy my friend works out, her manager got written up for price matching. So its a mixed bag.

    Fry's might be a good shot. I was there yesterday and i know they do sell the transformer.

    When I moves to San Diego and discovered Fry's, I never even set foot in a Best Buy again. Since I've moved back to NY I really miss that store...a lot

    I tried Frys and they would not honor it because apparently they do not take coupons, it has to be the flat price. =/

    Just got back from Best Buy and they took the coupon. Had a gift card and some reward zone points and ended up getting it for $275 with no interest for 6 months. I freaking love this thing! So glad I got it. I have been putting off getting a tablet for some time. About time I stopped dragging my feet!

    Congrats, that is nice. Still trying to get another Transformer, 16gb, for my wife but no luck so far. Office Depot, Best Buy would not take the coupon in my area. Not sure about BJ's, waiting to see if anyone confirm if they do not take it either. Do not want to drive everywhere and end wasting $ 100.00 in gas.

    I got shut down at both Best Buy and Frys Electronics today. They almost honored it at Frys but since its sold out at Staples online store they wouldn't honor it. I may try one more Best Buy, but I'm drawing the line there. Congrats to those of you who were able to get in on the good deal.

    Only two days to go. Ask your Staples if they can order it into the store for you.
