UPDATE 1/25/13: The folks at Staples must have their heads where the sun don’t shine. You can see in this image below the word “FREE” which was the shipping line. Just got an email that reads my order will be cancelled if I don’t cough up $9.99 to have it shipped (my words).
It’s true that in the ad (at the top) reads “Shipping charges apply.” The problem is, Staples didn’t apply them, in fact it says “FREE.” I have emailed their customer support, and will update if/when I get a response. I apologize if any of my readers took advantage of this deal and you are receiving the same disappointing email. Clearly they are taking advantage of their customers if they bait & switch like this.
UPDATE 1/24/13: Staples must have had more orders than they cared to handle at the $0.99 price, because they’ve changed the promotion to $9.99. That’s really too bad, but hopefully some of you were able to get your order in when it was still $0.99!
I love when my friends share deals with me, as I don’t always catch everything and this one I would have missed!
- Head to Staples.com and look for the ad at the top of this post, which will be in the left sidebar on Staples’ home page.
- You’ll be able to create a return address-size self-inking stamp, which you can design with your own image or just text, and
save a whopping $18as it’s only 99¢!
- You can even have it shipped Priority or Rush FREE of charge if you upload your own image rather than choosing one of their images.
Don’t really need a return address stamp? Do what I did … create an image of your child’s name for them to have their own personal stamp!
Other ideas … Teacher’s names, a friend’s name for a birthday gift, your family’s last name, “Remember!” or other phrase to call attention.
You will also have your choice of ink color: black, red, blue, green or purple (that’s what I chose for my daughter’s name stamp!).
And as if getting the
$18 stamp for just $0.99 isn’t sweet enough, remember to upload your own image and choose priority or rush shipping FREE! If you use one of their images there will be a shipping charge.
Thanks Robin and Hip2Save!
