Also excludes ink (ink & toner), I'm assuming this means all ink, or just printer ink? No mention of FPs though, so if you can find the one you want in your local store, should work. See disclaimer, below:

Valid in Staples® U.S. stores only. Limit one coupon per customer. Excludes all Paper. Excludes the following categories: Food & Breakroom Supplies, Janitorial Paper, Chemicals and Cleaners, Appliances & Housewares, Safety & Medical Supplies, Facilities Supplies, Ink & Toner, Flash Drives, Technology, Printers, Shredders and Furniture. May not be combined with any other coupon. No cash/credit back. Not valid on any desktop or laptop computers, netbooks, tablets, eReaders including Amazon Kindle®, Apple® products, Bose® products, HP ink and toner, Epson® ink and toner, custom printing orders placed online, services, promotional products, gift cards, Staples Industrial purchases, prior purchases or any purchases on other provider Web sites. Each item purchased can only be discounted by one coupon, applied by cashier in the order received and prior to tax. Coupon not valid if purchased or sold and must be surrendered. No cash/credit back. Not valid on prior purchases or purchases made with Staples® Procurement or Convenience Cards.

I see nothing there that excludes Fountain pens.

 

[EDIT] It might be Just the thing if you wanted to juggle chainsaws, oh! I'm sorry, I meant wanted to try a new production Sonnet for a cheaper spin of the Parker Roulette wheel.

Correct, fountain pens appear to be fair game, but ink is in doubt, according to the disclaimer.

I printed the coupon, went in to the store and asked if I could use it in the store to get something they didn't have in the store.

 

The manager placed the order, then applied a 40% discount to the item.  Iroshizuku Momijii arriving at my house early next week.

 

So, maybe.  Depends on the staff on the ground.

could be a misinterpretation on my part.  the e-mail i got said "reserve online, pick up in store."  I though that meant order online.

 

The e-mail also says "Hello, new pen" in the subject line.

The "ink" could be hit or miss, depending on how much a stickler they want to be.  Usually it means inkjet printer ink carts.  Selling "toner" the powder is rare, it's toner cartridges that are sold.  It's the techy stuff that's always excluded from these promotions.  "ink and toner" is one category. FP ink is categorized under "pens, pencils markers."

 

Anyway, I'm really happy I got to help at least one person. :)

 

If only I could decide which ink to get...

Almost HALF off a couple of the pricey Parker Qunik BP refills.

 

Wow. This'll work for me too.

 

[EDIT] PS; Thanks! Wally.

I used this coupon earlier today for the Arc Hole punch.

 

Though the exclusions for 'one office supply item' seems a little weird. 

 

Valid in Staples® U.S. stores only. Limit one coupon per customer. Excludes all Paper. Excludes the following categories: Food & Breakroom Supplies, Janitorial Paper, Chemicals and Cleaners, Appliances & Housewares, Safety & Medical Supplies, Facilities Supplies, Ink & Toner, Flash Drives, Technology, Printers, Shredders and Furniture. May not be combined with any other coupon. No cash/credit back. Not valid on any desktop or laptop computers, netbooks, tablets, eReaders including Amazon Kindle®, Apple®products, Bose® products, HP ink and toner, Epson® ink and toner, custom printing orders placed online, services, promotional products, gift cards, Staples Industrial purchases, prior purchases or any purchases on other provider Web sites. Each item purchased can only be discounted by one coupon, applied by cashier in the order received and prior to tax. Coupon not valid if purchased or sold and must be surrendered. No cash/credit back. Not valid on prior purchases or purchases made with Staples® Procurement or Convenience Cards.

 

 

So I was wondering when I went in the store if the punch would be eligible and such, cuz reading that above I almost felt like asking "What's left to buy? paper clips". 

 

Oh and "Ink" isn't eligible.
