method for 30$ off new gps unit


had some extra time to do this today, actually in the end i think i saved 30$+, including tax and shipping, my magellan gps 315 , new, was 124.17$ from Staples.com.

this would work for anything/any electronics item from staples, i think they might only have the magellan 315 in terms of gps right now, they also have magellan acessories/cd-roms. but i bet in the near future they'll be adding more/they are really good w/customer service-if people ask for more models they might stock them, im not sure what they have though, look around..anyway:

1.goto www.staples.com
search for "gps", find unit = magellan gps 315 is 179$=overpriced
(but w/freenext day shipping). staples, however, will match
competitors' prices, but they will add on the shipping that the
comptetitors charge.

2.goto www.mysimon.com
search for magellan gps 315 turns up tons of stores, one,
turboprice.com has it for 144$. here's the key, turboprice has
no next day shipping, staples, when matching price will add
shipping of the competitor that most closely approximates next day.
Truboprice only has ground for 9$, so 9$ was added to the 144$,
mercata.com, has it for 144$ but next day for 20$, so that 20$
wouldve been added had i used them as the "competitor".

3.goto http://finditnow.8m.com/ or
http://www.gogoshopper.com/coupon.html
these sites have tons of Stalpes coupon codes, there are alot for
40$ off a purchase of 150$ or more. (also 25$ off 100$ etc
etc) - these coupon sites have been aroudn for a few years
now, there are more of them-pretty usefull.


now call staples 1-800-3STAPLE, choose the "more info about product" option. they'll hook you up. it might take a few minutes, they need to confirm, themselves, what the other price would be w/shipping at the other place etc.

so, in the end it was 124.17$ for a new magellan gps 315 shipped to my door, w/tax included. not bad right? cheaper than what they are going for,used, on ebay w/o shipping.


feel free to post this to any relevant places, just dont include my e-mail addy

take care
