Ask for the online price at Office Depot if it’s cheaper

Office Deot IMG_0452

When I was over by Fred Meyer, I stopped to see if the Canon ink I use was cheaper than what I’ve been paying at Office Depot. I looked at Office Depot’s website to compare its price. Fred Meyer wasn’t cheaper.

So, when I went over to Office Depot, I was surprised to see that the store price was more than the online price by $3. I asked one of the sales associates about it and he said to ask for the online price at checkout.

I did. And I learned that you have to ask for the cheaper online price. It won’t be given to you automatically.

Just another way corporations gouge consumers every day.
