We had quite the conversation last week about the Office Depot allowances and discovered, you MUST speak to your store manager to find out if TEACHERS are given the courtesy of purchasing more than the limits listed in the weekly ad. Some stores told teachers, no can do, you get what everybody else gets, while others gave teachers up to 10 times the limit.
Talk to the GENERAL MANAGER of the store! Ask for that person’s name so you can use it when you tell the associate questions you.
Many stores (Staples, Target, and WalMart) will price match the exact items. One teacher did tell me that her store will match the Office Depot/Staples brand with the WalMart brand. The price matching policy for the exact items are nationwide, however, you should check with the GENERAL MANAGER of the store for off brand items.
