I cannot get the coupon for the markers to pop up. was wondering if anyone could send me the coupon to my email, or know of another websit that I can get the coupon from.

Amber, the markers coupon is a PDF file, so you'll need to download Adobe Acrobat in order to open it if you don't already have it.

The coupon for the marker has some strange use requirements - in short you cannot use them both on the same transaction and my staples required you to do that in order for you to receive the sale price.

These deals are huge savings this time a year as school supply shopping begins.

I called Office Max and they said that they will price match if you bring in competitor's you could get most of this with just one shopping trip!

I contacted staples and was told they do not accept manufacturer coupons. Still trying to sort it out...seems like many people have used the Bic coupon. Anyone else having this issue?

The expo click markers at my store rang full price unless you bought two. It was cheaper to buy 2 than 1, so she "returned" them and did transaction over. Thought it might be nice to check, since this was a hassle for both. They were very nice about it. The copy paper is a super good deal, and have done rebate before with ease.

I just went to Staples and I was not allowed to use the Bic coupon because the value of the coupon ($1) was more than the total purchase price ($0.50). Anyone know Staples' policy on this? I bought them anyway because it was a great deal. Regarding the Expo markers, the cashier commented about the terminology "one per purchase per visit" but she took them both anyway because I explained that I was "purchasing" 2 and that I believe it needs to say "one per transaction" in order to refuse multiple coupons.
