    I checked my store on line and they have some in, I’m going tomorrow. My son and future daughter in-law also want one so they will use their own AM cards. You can never have too many of these things they are great for storage.

    @tommycoupons, check your receipt it should show the bonus points already on there.

    AM does not show on your receipt. I wouldn’t be surprised if Staples/AM only honours the first 100 AM…but what do I know.

    Where is it said that you get 100+ AirMiles for this item?

    In the printed ad, this item is only listed on the front page at the $7.96 price — but no mention of 100 AirMiles. and there’s no mention of it online either.

    The only mention of 100 Bonus AirMiles is the Asus Note Tablet on the front page of the flyer. (And a few other items within the flyer are marked with bonus miles of 5, 10, 30, 50, etc on each specific item — but not this item)

    Can you show where Staples is awarding 100 on this item?

    Thanks

    @bhlombardy There was text on the right column where it says SAVE! that had the bonus 100 air miles points from yesterday. I guess someone caught the error and removed it. Seems rather ridiculous to offer such a bonus!

  6. tommycoupons says:

    well they better honor this offer after i bought 2 of them i have a copy of the live chat with staples where i even copied and pasted the offer

  7. bhlombardy says:

    @tommycoupons: It doesn’t mean they will. It will be considered an advertising error… and the “live chat” agent isn’t responsible for awarding AirMiles, nor for advertising errors. At best you’ll be welcomed to return the items for a full refund, but I strongly doubt you’ll ever see the bonus Air Miles.

    All that being said, shouldn’t SmartCanucks remove the offer or at least amend the posting since it is, quite apparently, invalid?

  8. Tammy says:

    I seen the points offer on yesterdays ad I should have printed it but when I went today to get two one for my son and one for me I was told that there is no AM bonus. But I’ll e-mail them and asked about it but I won’t hold out any hope that I will get a reply I e-mailed once before about an item on sale on line but when I got to the store they changed the price and wouldn’t honor the ad even when I had printed it up and they never replied back.

    @chiofsteel I don’t think it was ridiculous I thought they were offer this just remind people that they had air miles now sort of a way of getting people’s attention.

  9. Tammy says:

    So I just spoke with their customer service and they said that they have been having problems with the website and that it was a technical error and therefore will not be providing anyone with the bonus points. I hope that they will provide you with them tommycoupons since you have written proof. This is really making them look bad, if this happens too much it might look like they are doing it to get people to buy items by offering them these point deals and then taking them away.

  10. tommycoupons says:

    I agree tammy. I would constitute it as fraud rather than a technical error. I will get my bonus airmiles from them one way or another!

  11. tommycoupons says:

    If Staples or any company makes an error they have to honor that error. My purchase was based on their advertising and if I can’t trust their advertising I would certainly never shop at their stores again, because I will have to assume that all future advertising will be based on errors and can’t be trusted.

    A refund is on its way

  13. jr says:

    bait and switch?

  14. Christina Brake says:

    i want to staples and salesman told.me that product was old and they were on sale. No air miles! pushing sales.

  15. bhlombardy says:

    It’s not a bait and switch… that’s a COMPLETELY different definition and scenario all together. Also, screaming “fraud” won’t get you anywhere.

    The offer itself was unreasonable – to expect 100 AirMiles (essentially a $10 reimbursable value) on an $8 purchase.

    It’s a mistake… an advertising error, and no one is being forced to keep the product once the error was identified. No business is “forced” to honor something based on a mistake. Anyone who tells you that a store “must” honor an incorrect price tag, misprint on a sign or print ad, or offer is gravely mistaken. Many stores do, if it’s manageable, but it’s not “required” of them. Even SCOP is a voluntary initiative.

    In this particular case, the mistake was noticed and corrected within a reasonable amount of time. They don’t “have to” honor the error. All they need to do is make a reasonable amends, which could be as simple as a full refund.

    Now, if they make a severe “habit” of doing it, like their ads are consistently inaccurate… and they make repeated offers that they don’t honor or follow through on, then a public complaint *might* force a court to order them the adhere to a policy of more accurate advertising, and the like. But that’s an extreme matter. An occasional and short-lived error such as this, is not such a condition and does not constitute “fraud”.

    You can certainly choose to not shop there as that’s your decision, but I’d be surprised threats and accusations will get you your bonus AirMiles. Are you really going to go toe-to-toe over $20?
