      Do you happen  know where I can get my hands on this ad without actually going to a store maybe like a newspaper etc. because the closest to me is like 50 miles away and could just comp. some stuff at Wal-mart.

      Thanks so much…?

      • Lisascoupons67

         here is a link to their online ad, and by walmarts pm policy you dont have to have the ad.  http://www.officemax.com/    the link to the ad is in the top right of page. Good luck.

        On their website?

        • Heidigoseeek1

          They may not price match without it being a competitor, but I will tell you my recent experience.  I needed to get a bike for my son's birthday, couldn't really afford the one he'd picked out but I found it advertised a few places online for $30 cheaper.  Showed the manager the ads on my phone, and he priced matched no question.  I was surprised, but sooo happy :-)  Maybe I just have a cool manager at my store though lol

        You'd probably have to wait until the sunday paper comes out, then take that

      • Jennifer_1021

        It's usually in the Sunday paper, especially this time of year.

      • guest

        Will Walmart Price match Stores that aren't close by? I thought they would only do competitors… There were a few deals at Staples I wanted, but their isn't a store close by.

        As to where to get it. If Walmart will accept a printed out ad, I would just do that. Your Sunday paper might have one, but since the closest one is 50 miles away, I'm not sure. Because where I live, the closest Rite Aid is about 100 miles away, so we don't get their ad in the paper.

        • mayra7x

          IDK about the rite aid but if there is a staple near-ish by and get an ad you should go for it…but I've heard stories of the dumb's thing people do at wal-mart to try and comp. things and if the managers at your wal-mart are easily convinced or persuade go head an try a the rite aid the worst that could happen is they'll say no…people at my wal-mart pretty much give everything away …kinda of off topic…I've never done it but my sister has said that people return stuff like i-pods and say nothing was in the box and either get another or get cash or gift card…uhh..people really?? and me and my sister were talking about how we can't bring in a printed ad but yet they do that cheating the company out of hundreds to thousands of dollar…but whatever…

          Good luck though, ?

            That's so sad that people out there think they can cheat the system by returning an iPod claiming that there was no iPod in the box. It will be funny when they get caught, and they will. Walmart and Apple will get their money back don't you worry. You know that the person returning the box stating there was no iPod it in, they are going to use the iPod, or at least someone will. Then the iPod is connected to itunes, the serial number will be shot up to Apple and they will know that the iPod that matches the box is being used. And your Apple account will be linked to your credit card. Sure is easy for fraud departments to find you. Some people think they can cheat the system, but rest assured, it will catch up with them. It may be months or years from now, but it will happen.

      • Grannaleslie

        My Wal-Mart only matches to within a 20 mile radius, and won't accept a printed ad from the internet, only the orignal store ad. These are almost always in the Sunday paper.

        • mayra7x

          Well my sister works there she said it could be within a 50 mile radius and no not no more they don't accept the print out ad off there site you have to have the ad…

    • mparker

      my walmart will price match without the ad just tell them the store and the price and they match it.

    • Amie111

      I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, GrabPenny.com

      No office max ad in my area Sunday paper. Went to the store and none of these items are on sale. Am I missing something?

      • Erikashines

        I had the same problem in Minnesota. The staff didn't know anything in general and the basic sharper and schoolio folders rang up regular price.No ads in store or in my paper. Actually in my delivered Sunday paper today was last weeks comic section and ads. No coupons! How does that even happen? Thanks Star Tribune. My re-delivered paper also had no ad for office max. Kept my receipt for the paper. I may stop by in a day or two to see if the store goin their ads. The ads have always been in front. Not today.

        • Tnjcent

          Call the paper and report this! I did so last weekend for the Orlando Sentinel and they sent me Sundays paper w all inserts on Mon. morning…..they need to know you are not satisfied.

          • Erikashines

            I did have my paper re-delivered. It seems my coupons are missing at least once a month recently. I always have it sent out again. Still annoying. The agent at the paper said someone else called because the front page was our local paper they ordered, but inside was the New York times! What? And to clarify my above post, I am bringing the receipt for the x9 paper from office max to show my purchase, so I have the required $5 purchase for the 1 penny items. I was planning to start school supply collection and operation christmas child supplies. Hopefully they will figure out their own sale. I trust Jenny's list more than the kids working the store! Lol! Oh well, they are so close to me, I'll stop back. And I did get free pens and sharpies at Target. That's a start.

        • K8 e

          So do you think our stores may figure it out?  I am wondering if it is worthwhile going back in.  

    • Tracycook79

      I think it is totally retarded that this store will not allow teachers to have a higher limit if purchasing for their class.  Every other store ups the limits for teachers.

      • couponsavings

        I hope that you're not the teacher trying to order.  That language is very offensive.

      • Korriray

        Staples lets you get 25 and they have great penny deals! This is why I dont shop at Office Max

    • Angelascoupons1

      The only good deals are the ones mentioned…most of the other school supplies are not at a great price yet.  However, if you pick up a little here, a little at Staples, a little at Target…you can get it all on the cheap!  The paper is a good deal….the money on my rewards card will be used for future purchases of printer ink.

        Walgreens has their paper 2/$1 with the in-store ad coupon.
