The last 4 times I went to Staples to buy an item advertised on sale, they said that the item was out of stock.
Each time I went well before the end of the sale.
The last incident was for a camcorder that required a coupon which I printed from my computer.
I asked if I could have a rain check and was told no.
An external hard drive that actually was in stock which I bought died less than 2 months after I bought it.
Staples told me that I would have to go to the manufacturer and when I went to their website the instructions were so complicated,that I gave up.
I will no longer be shopping at Staples.
