[b]Maxtor 160gig for $30 got CANCEL from Officedepot!![/b]

Postby night2dayz on Thu Nov 06, 2003 4:49 am

the HD costs $149.99 I used 4 coupons($-20, -20, -20, -10 = $70 to get the hard 160g drive to $87 dolloars and there were $30 from maxtor rebate and $25 from OD. However, I got a letter said that my order got cancel because they did not advertise it. It was an error.

Anyone has the same problem?
or they just did it to me

Actually the coupons were never supposed to be stackable in the first place (three of the four are '$20 off $100'!!!), so they have nothing to honor.

It was a programming or data entry glitch that allowed multiple codes for the same discount to be stacked, that is all.

I was tempted to order. However, since I realized it was a mistake, I passed on it, feeling it would be intentionally taking advantage of OD.

There is a big difference between this Office Depot deal and the Dell deal. Dell advertised on their website that both $100 rebates were valid. Office Depot never advertised that you can stack these coupons. It just was a computer glitch that prevented their system from automatically enforcing the terms of the coupon. It's kind of like the difference between finding a tax loophole and simply not paying your taxes in the hope that the IRS won't audit you.
