Save 20% TODAY Only: Asus 11.6” Notebook Only $199 @ Staples.ca Black Friday!

Posted by on November 27, 2014 at 9:04 AM

Save 20% TODAY Only: Asus 11.6” Notebook Only $199 @ Staples.ca Black Friday!

If anyone is on the lookout for a low-priced laptop for Christmas, then consider the great price on this Asus notebook. Previously priced at $249.96, it’s down to only $199.96 with free shipping from Staples Canada!

The Asus notebook will be at this price or today only – it’s one of the pre-Black Friday deals from Staples. Here’s the full title of this laptop: Asus Notebook (X205TA-SH41-CB), 11.6″, 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z3735F, 2GB RAM, 32GB SSD.

When I first clicked through to this on the Staples site, it said “out of stock” but I checked again an hour later, and it was back in stock! You could be lucky and get one!

So, it’s got 2GB of RAM which is decent enough to start with. It has a 32GB hard drive which isn’t huge, but it is a bonus that it is an SSD. It seems like a great notebook for portability – perhaps great if you commute to and from work. Or perhaps even a starter laptop for a teenager? I am sure they’d love that as a Christmas pressie.

Staples Black Friday Flyer Here Now! Some In store Specials Starting Wednesday

Black Friday starts tomorrow in-stores at Staples with some deals starting tomorrow, some on Friday. We’ve got the flyer for you to peruse, but I want to point out the extra-hot deals that are going to be happening.

I need a new wireless keyboard and mouse and this one from Logitech looks great and I love that the batteries can last up to three years. Regularly $99.94, get it for $59.94.

My son would love a DSLR for Christmas and price has normally stopped me. This Canon EOS Rebel T5 Digital SLR is a sweet deal. Regularly $579.55 (although on sale online right now for $449.55), get it for $399.55.

iPads and iPad Minis will be up to $70 off at Staples.

I noticed task chairs were $100 off, custom labels and calendars are 50% off and cards and invitations are 25% off. They also have buy one, get one free deals on photo paper packs.

Staples Black Friday For Business Deals!

Posted by on November 21, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Staples Black Friday For Business Deals!

Staples has an early Black Friday sale going on this weekend with tons of deals for business. Of course, you can also buy these business deals for your home as well.

I see a number of great deals that I’d like to get for my home-based business, that would also be great for an office or some even for the home or another setting.

For example, Staples has a Purell hand sanitizer dispenser on sale for only $3.96, with a regular price of $8.96. Today I was helping out my children’s school and my youngest son’s teacher walked by with a sick little girl. She had just thrown up all over his class. My first thought after “oh no!!!” was hopefully they got the sanitizer out and got the area and the kids all sanitized. I really don’t want to deal with vomit all weekend (or month!). Wouldn’t one of these be perfect in a classroom?

If you need a great executive chair and don’t want to pay executive prices, Staples has the Global Ride & Rest leather executive chair in black on for $800 off. Now $499 and was $1299.99, I couldn’t find this chair for less than $800 at other online Canadian retailers. With adjustable everything and gearshift controls, it even has adjustable lumbar support. My aching back is screaming for this chair!

While there is no regular price, I do believe this is a hot buy. The Emtec 8GB Click USB flash drive in a 5-pack is only $29.98. I price compared elsewhere and couldn’t find it as the five-pack but one was at least $12 and you are getting them for $6 each, which is essentially half the price. You know you’ll use all five too.

Staples offers free shipping on orders over $45, so get what you need and get your total over this low minimum for free shipping.

Staples Canada: 24-Pack Donut Shop K-Cups Only $8/ Was $16

Posted by on November 19, 2014 at 7:50 AM

Staples Canada: 24 Pack Donut Shop K Cups Only $8/ Was $16

Before they sell out, any coffee lover should jump on this deal from Staples. Get a 24 pack of Donut Shop k-cups from Staples for only $8.24, with a regular price of $16.49.

There are two flavours available for this sale under the Authentic Donut Shop brand. There is original roast coffee and original dark coffee. Unfortunately for those who love sweetness in their coffee, the chocolate chip is not on sale. Also, for those who love the dark, those are sold out!

The original roast coffee is smooth with a medium roast strength and the original dark is bolder and deeper with a dark roast strength.

While I don’t drink coffee, I appreciate that people who love their coffee like to stock up because they know that running out of coffee is not an option. My aunt loves her coffee and she has one full cupboard stocked with just coffee discs. She has every flavour imaginable. If you go over to her house and she asks you if you want coffee, be prepared to take some time to pick a flavour!

If you like the original flavour, you might want to get as many boxes as you can for this price. Because Staples offers free shipping on orders that $45 or more, you might want to get yourself a minimum of six boxes. If you got six boxes, you’d save the shipping and a total of almost $50 off your coffee.

Looking around the net for price comparisons, I didn’t find these K-cups for less than the regular price, so this is a fantastic deal. I also couldn’t find many reviews, but you might as well try it and see if you like it!

Staples Canada: Mousepad Only $10

Posted by on November 17, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Staples Canada: Mousepad Only $10

The Logitech G240 mouse pad is now $9.99 at Staples and it regularly retails for $19.99.

It doesn’t come with any free shipping offers but you can check the store inventory and reserve it to pick up in store instead. It has free shipping when you spend $45 and so if you have regular purchases to make from Staples you can add this to your purchase.

If you want to buy a stocking filler for the gamer in your life this would make a good start.  It would also make a good gift for anyone who has to travel for work and needs to make an awkward space into a work surface that the mouse will move on while on the go.

The mouse pad comes with a 3-year warranty, which suggests that it will last, since the manufacturers are willing to back a product that will get heavy wear and tear. It will work particularly well with other Logitech products as it is matched to Logitech G sensors, but it will work with any mouse.

Reviewers of this product had this to say:

Overall a very thin, smooth mouse pad which is pretty big too, so you get good $/square feet ratio. However, the mouse pad is a dust magnet so watch out if you’re using it with a mouse that tends to have problems when dust accumulates in its sensor or mouse feet. This mouse pad’s MSRP is expensive. Would only recommend when it goes on sale.

The normal price of this mouse pad is more than I would pay, but I agree with the reviewer the sale makes it something I would definitely be interested in. It can make your experience with an everyday item like your mouse a little less frustrating.

Staples Canada: Business Card Magnets – Now $10 (Save $14)

Posted by on November 11, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Staples Canada: Business Card Magnets   Now $10 (Save $14)

Seriously, if you want office supplies, then you need to hit up this sale at Staples Canada. Right now, they have a great deal on a 100 pack of Business Card Magnets. Originally $24.41, they are now on sale for $10.

Business card magnets are pretty much what they sound like. They are an adhesive magnetic backing that is pre-cut for business card size. You can take your own business cards and adhere them to the magnet strips to create business card magnets instead of plain business cards.

There are several advantages. There is a much higher probability your business card will make it onto the customer’s or client’s fridge. As the fridge is a high traffic area it increases the probability of your card being seen on a regular basis.

The magnets work with pre-existing cards you have made up. That is a huge advantage to this product, rather than ordering custom made business card magnets. Unfortunately, the magnets work best with single sided business cards while most people tend to order double-sided business cards these days.

Only one review was negative out of nine reviews leaving me to believe he received a faulty product. The latest reviewer said:

More cost effective to apply to Business cards rather than buy business cards with magnetic backing(fridge magnets)

As these are on sale for such an amazing price, you are really saving an amazing amount of money and can use this as an advertising opportunity for your small business or company.

Shipping is free on orders of $45 or more. I highly recommend checking out the rest of the Staples Canada business supply sale that is on right now. I found the Staples Metal Mesh Office Manager that was $19.09 on sale for $10. These are incredible useful for keeping your office desk organized.

I also have to mention the deal on this Staples Standing Stapler, Half-Strip with a 20-Sheet Capacity. For only $3, now (originally $9.96) you can buy yourself a full size stapler instead of fighting with one of those mini staplers that only does three pages. I need one of these.

These 3M Reusable Corded Earplugs are also an incredible deal at $2 each when the original price was $12.93. I swear my father used to own about ten pairs of these for work, for shooting, and for sleeping.

Quantities are limited per person on some items.

Staples Canada: TWO Samsung 21.5″ LED Monitors for $199.99 (Reg $170 Each)

Posted by on October 29, 2014 at 12:43 PM

Staples Canada: TWO Samsung 21.5 LED Monitors for $199.99 (Reg $170 Each)

Staples Canada is selling the Samsung LS22D390HS/ZC 21.5″ LED Monitor for $169.99 right now. However, buy two and your second one will only cost $30, which means you get two monitors for just $199.99 (value of $339.98).

I quickly price compared this monitor with Canadian competitors:

  • $169.99 @ Newegg Canada
  • $149.99 @ Tiger Direct Canada
  • $150.60 @ Best Direct Canada

That price is per monitor. With this deal, you are paying a nominal amount more for a second monitor. I am stoked about this deal!

The monitor has a 21.5″ display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Enjoy an aspect ratio of 16:9 with a quick 5ms response time. The monitor has a slim form that features both VGA and HDMI ports so you can connect your laptop or your smartphone for a more productive environment. No need to stare at a small screen when you have a 21.5″ monitor or two you can use. With the right software, you can spread your screen across both the monitors or use them separately for opening different applications.

There are four reviews of this monitor with a solid four out of five star rating overall. Here is what one reviewer had to say:

Easy to set up, excellent colours, resolution and clarity. When used on HDMI be sure to reset sound settings (after installing driver) as monitor does not have built-in speakers. Great price for use at home.

Another reviewer agreed with his assessment but did find the lack of speakers a pain:

I bought this monitor to hook up a ps3 to it, works great! it has many different settings and it takes awhile to understand all of them. If your thinking of buying this make sure you read the manual that comes with it, its very helpful. This monitor is a pain to use to game because it has no speakers, you can hook it up to your headphones or speakers. (with another accessory) Other wise this monitor is a great and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a monitor for gaming.

I have always found built in monitor speakers to be pretty crap anyway so I would recommend buying some external speakers (they run cheap). You can usually find some great sets on used sites like Kijiji or Craigslist as well. With this offer of two monitors for $200, the price really cannot be beat for a brand name monitor of this size. If you do not need two monitors, then place your purchase with a friend and split the savings. Quantities are limited.

Receive free shipping as this deal costs over $45.

Staples Canada Printable Coupon: 10% Discount In Store

Posted by on October 24, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Staples Canada Printable Coupon: 10% Discount In Store

We do not often post just in store deals, but this one is such a nice little coupon! Receive 10% off anything in store at Staples Canada this weekend. By this weekend, I actually mean Friday and Saturday only.

This coupon actually has so few exclusions! You cannot use it on stamps, gift cards, self-serve copying (but maybe non-self serve?), computer rentals, phone cards, or Bose products. While I am somewhat sad about the Bose exclusion (I want one of their wireless speakers so badly), everything else is fair game. In store deals vary by city and province. My own Staples flyer had some rather paltry offerings I must say.

You want to know something that is not excluded? Apple. Yes, nowhere on the coupon is Apple products excluded from the 10% off. The entire category of laptops is also fair game so you can find an awesome deal on a laptop and then stack this coupon on top for an even better savings. That is how I bought my mother’s laptop actually! I found a base model for $50 off and then I had a printable coupon that saved me an extra $20 or so.

This coupon also does not exclude tablets or MP3 players or any of those other yummy pieces of technological ingenuity. Purchase a new headset, a new smart phone, or load up on office supplies while you are there.

Online and maybe in-store as well, the new Apple iPad Air 2 tablets are on pre-sale. You could always see if you can use the 10% off coupon code on a pre-sale. Frankly, you are paying up front for the device on one of the days the printable coupon is valid and it does not explicitly say that the coupon cannot be used against pre-sales. I assume you would end up fighting with the Staples store manager on this one. However, if you love the next best thing it might be worth a try. Getting 10% off a brand-new (not even technically released yet) iPad Air 2 would be awesome!

If you use the printable coupon, then please let me know what you manage to score with it especially if you manage to score a fantastic tech deal! I always love hearing about those.

Staples Canada reserves the right to limit quantities. For this and any other Staples coupons, visit the forum.

Staples Canada: La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair | Was $275 Now $125

Posted by on October 23, 2014 at 8:30 AM

Staples Canada: La Z Boy Ellison Managers High Back Center Pivot Chair | Was $275 Now $125

This is one sweet deal! Staples currently has their La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair on sale for $124.54 – it used to cost $274.54! That’s $150 off the retail price! You’ll also qualify for free shipping!

Click here to check out this deal @ Staples.ca now

The La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair looks so comfortable that I wish I was sitting in it right now. Sure, my black leather office chair is very nice, and it’s quite convenient, but you just can’t compete with an office chair that was made by La-Z-Boy! They’re especially known for their recliners (thus, the famous term La-Z-Boy is used commonly, much like the way people will call tissue paper Kleenex, even when it’s a generic brand). Yes, La-Z-Boy has plenty of brand familiarity, and a great reputation, too.

This is a very good deal at Staples. This La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair is a high end product, and I’d be very surprised if these comfortable-looking chairs were still in-stock tomorrow! If you’re looking for the perfect replacement for your office chair, or if you want to spoil yourself and get a luxury piece of furniture without breaking the bank, then I highly suggest that you check out this deal!

If you were to purchase a similar La-Z-Boy Manager’s Chair at Bizchair, it would cost you $501.99. I’ve included a brief review of a similar La-Z-Boy manager’s chair from a satisfied Staples customer below:

Husband was having back problems from sitting in his chair from a certain cheap store. So I went to staples and bought him this. First he complained that I spent this much on a chair, however he absolutely loves it! He’s in his office chair 8-10 hours a day and has not had a single pain since I bought him this chair! 

This deal expires on October 28th, but I’ll be shocked if this La-Z-Boy Ellison Manager’s High-Back Center Pivot Chair remains in stock until then. I hope you all have a great day today!

Staples Canada: Staples High Back Bonded Manager Chair | Was $224 Now $124

Posted by on October 11, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Staples Canada: Staples High Back Bonded Manager Chair | Was $224 Now $124

Hey there, Bargainmoosers – Staples is currently having a pretty sweet sale on their High Back Bonded Manager Chair until October the 14th, which should entice any one with a home office that’s looking for a new chair. The regular price of this Staples High Back Bonded Manager Chair is $223.34, but you can now get it for $123.34! You’re saving $100 with this deal. Plus, you’ll also qualify for free shipping with your order!

Featuring comfy padded arm rests, a seat tilt and lock control, and bonded leather on the seat, back, and arms of the chair, this Staples High Back Bonded Manager Chair looks like it is a great choice for those that want the perfect chair for their office.

Since I work from my home office on a regular basis, I know how important comfort is – especially when I need to log in a high number of hours during each work day. I now have a similar manager chair in my home office, and the difference is incredible – I previously used older office chairs, and they just didn’t cut it after some time. I would feel incredibly sore, and it made it tougher for me to have the desire to put in those extra hours of freelance work. Thankfully, I can now work while staying comfortable with my manager chair.

If you were to buy a similar manager chair from Amazon, it would cost you $242.27. I’ve included a great review of this Staples High Back Bonded Manager Chair from a satisfied Staples customer below:

Purchased this chair for my graduate studies and so far it’s fantastic (and I spend a lot of time sitting in it!!). Very comfortable and also has great support. It was a bit more firm than I had expected but I actually like that about it. The padded arm rests are also great. It moves up and down smoothly and has an adjustable tilting function. It was fairly easy to put together with simple instructions. Very nice looking and even appears like real leather! Nothing I would complain about. Would definitely recommend to others.

I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Staples Canada: Canon PIXMA Wireless All In One Colour Printer (MX922) | Was $200 Now $90 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on September 23, 2014 at 9:10 AM

Staples Canada: Canon PIXMA Wireless All In One Colour Printer (MX922) | Was $200 Now $90 (EXPIRED)

Looking for an affordable way to scan and copy your pictures and documents? The Canon PIXMA MX922 wireless all – in – one colour printer can do just that – and of course, you can use it as a printer, too! Normally retailing for $199.94, you can currently get it from Staples for just $89.94! Your order will also qualify for free shipping. This deal is only on for a limited time (it actually expires today), so get this while it’s hot!

With the Canon PIXMA MX922 wireless all – in – one printer, it’s no surprise that you can do so much with it. You can easily print, copy, scan, and fax documents with this machine (yes, there are still instances when you may need to fax documents or photos). It even has a 3″ LCD screen built into it so you can edit and print documents and photos on the fly, and you can have up to a maximum of a 9600 x 2400 colour dpi for high quality printing.

I personally have a wireless all – in – one printer, and I’m very satisfied with it. There are many times when I’ll need to scan documents, and a wireless printing solution is especially important in a condo, so it really suits my daily needs. Plus, you can’t go wrong with a Canon! Though I’ve had issues with several of my previous printers, I haven’t had any issues with my Canon all – in – one printer yet.

This deal at Staples is pretty impressive – after all, the Canon PIXMA MX922 printer sells for $183.10 on Amazon, and it costs $199.99 on Canon’s Canadian website. I’ve listed a brief review of this all – in – one printing solution from a satisfied Amazon customer:

This is a GREAT multifunction printer! It does it all – prints, scans, copies and faxes – and all wirelessly. It has two separate trays for loading paper and other media (printable discs, photo paper) and the print quality is extremely good. It was super easy to setup and works like a charm. The only drawback – it prints quickly but not at lightning speed.

This deal at Staples expires today, so if you’re looking for a new printer that has plenty of versatility, take advantage of this deal now! Happy hunting, Bargainmoosers!

Staples Canada: 60L Storage Box Only $7.48 (50% Off)

Posted by on September 15, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Staples Canada: 60L Storage Box Only $7.48 (50% Off)

Staples Canada is having a storage event, with up to 50% off a number of items for storage in your home or office. I found this KIS 60L storage box on for 50% off, now only $7.48, with a regular price of $14.06.

You really can’t have enough storage boxes. I use them for everything from holiday decorations to clothing to toys to camping gear. Anything that I need to be put away at some point lives in a storage box. Sixty litres is a nice, large size to fit in a variety of your own items. These boxes are also stackable. This one on sale is black, which I think is perfect as it doesn’t stand out as an eyesore in a red or blue. It fits right in. I price compared 60L totes and couldn’t find any online for less than $10, so especially if you are buying a few, these are a great deal.

I found a few other notable items during this sale like this Advantus portable file. If you need to take files with you wherever you go for your job (or just for fun. This weather-proof case looks perfect for carrying data binders and hanging files. It is $25 off, with a regular price of $84.85, now $59.85.

If you need anything, and I mean anything, for storage purposes, Staples has it on sale during this sale. Even Sharpies, file folders all the way up to file cabinets and storage solutions are on sale with up to 50% off. I know most people do Spring cleaning, but I’m more of a winter cleaner. I use that time indoors when it is frigid outside to get my home organized and clean. In the spring, I want to be outside! This sale at Staples is perfect timing for me in Ontario with the weather getting cool enough to want to hibernate and be productive indoors.

You’ll want to spend $45 or more to get yourself free shipping.

Staples Canada: Electronic Security Safe & Portable Safe Combo Now $50 (Save $50)

Posted by on September 12, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Staples Canada: Electronic Security Safe & Portable Safe Combo Now $50 (Save $50)

My husband often quotes Elmer the Elephant who, evidently, said “Safety first.” While that can get quite annoying, I do believe safety is important especially when it comes to protective expensive items we buy.  Staples Canada has an excellent deal on an Electronic Security Safe and Portable Combination Safe Combo to keep your electronics, paperwork, jewelry, and other valuables secure. Originally $99.98, the set of safes is on sale for $50 with free shipping (as the safes cost over $45 – the minimum for free shipping).

This deal includes two safes: an electronic security safe and a portable combination safe. Both are made out of durable steel.

The Electronic safe measures 5.8” high by 17.5” wide by 13.6” deep. It is big enough for a decent sized laptop, a tablet, and any paperwork you need to keep secure. It has a programmable lock with a key override for quick access and as an added safety measure in case you forget your lock combination. The double walled steel box provides extra safety, and it comes with a carrying handle for transportation. This safe retails for $79.92 by itself and has a shipping weight of 14 lbs.

The Portable combination safe measures 2.6” high by 5.9” wide by 8” deep. While you may be wondering what you need a portable safe for, it is as excellent extra safety measure for storing your valuables while not at home. Keep it in the car in case you need to leave any valuables in your car at any time. Take it to the gym and put it in your locker to store your keys, phone, and wallet while you are at the gym or swimming pool. A couple years ago, there was a rash of locker break-ins at my university so combination safes are just another way to give yourself an extra layer of protection. This safe appears to no longer be sold individually.

$50 is a very reasonable price for two safes. Given the lower price range, do keep in mind that you get what you pay for. These safes are not going to be the highest quality but they should take care of the basics. I have no experience with safes myself, so I cannot comment as to the quality of this brand. If anyone else owns this brand of safes and would like to voice their opinion, feel free to comment below!

$120 Off HP Officejet Wireless All-In-One Printer + Free Paper Ream + Free Shipping @ Staples Canada

Posted by on September 8, 2014 at 7:00 PM

$120 Off HP Officejet Wireless All In One Printer + Free Paper Ream + Free Shipping @ Staples Canada

Here’s a back to school deal that you surely won’t want to miss. Head on over to Staples to get the HP Officejet (6700) wireless all-in-one colour inkjet printer for just $69.94. It was originally priced at $189.94, which puts it at a 61% discount ($120 off). You will also get a paper ream for free with your purchase and since Staples usually ships all orders over $45 for free, your order will also qualify for free shipping.

Although I don’t have this specific model, I have always had an HP printer and never had any issues with any of them. This one in particular features up to 16ppm and up to 9ppm. It also has AirPrint capabilities, which means that you can print documents directly from your phone as long as the printer is connected to Wi-Fi. It also boasts over 45 reviews with 4.3 stars out of 5.

As for a price comparison, Tiger Direct is selling this printer for $89.99, while the HP Store has it on sale for $79.99 from a regular price of $189.99.

Valued at $7.36, you will also get a free HP FSC-Certified multipurpose paper ream with the purchase HP Office 6700 printer and if you want to add more than one paper ream, then you can also get it on sale right now for $4.99. I had to admit that at first, I had no clue what exactly a paper ream is. As it turns out, in this case, it’s actually a pack of 500 printer sheets with a total weight of 20 lbs. At a size of 8-1/2″ x 11″, they are also 96 bright, which will enhance the brightness and hence, the contrast, on any document or anything else that you print. According to the product details, this paper ream is also manufactured with ColorLok Technology, which “produces colours up to 30% more vivid and blacks up to 60% bolder than ordinary papers and dries up to three times faster for fewer smears”.

Plus, if you decide to get more than one paper ream, then you will be happy to know that 20% of all proceeds are also donated to the Canadian Cancer Society for breast cancer research. Although this paper ream isn’t all that pricey to begin with, especially since it’s currently on sale, every penny counts nonetheless! If you want to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society directly, then you can that as well through their site.

Staples Canada has discounted this case of HP FSC-Certified Multipurpose Paper, 20 lb. 8 1/2″ x 11″ to $49.90, originally $65.85. This sale price is even slightly better than a case of the cheapest Staples brand copy paper.

This paper is 96 bright and acid-free. It is manufactured with ColorLok Technology, which:

produces colours up to 30% more vivid and blacks up to 60% bolder than ordinary papers and dries up to three times faster for fewer smears

You can use this paper in a two-sided printer or copier with its extra smooth surface. I did not know this, but HP donates 20% off the proceeds from each case of paper to the Canadian Cancer Society for breast cancer research. That is pretty cool.

I couldn’t find these cases of paper very many places, but I did find the same HP case at Office Depot for $64.99. For small businesses and for families with many children in school, you will find yourself going through paper at an exceedingly high rate. This box includes 5000 pages. As a university student, I went through around 400 – 500 pages per year just by myself. I hated wasting that much paper, but between rough drafts, printing out articles for research, and then printing out papers to submit I went through so much paper per year. My parents run their own business and between invoices, quotes, contracts, and all the other paperwork necessary to run a small business in Canada, a case-lot of paper was purchased every couple of years.

I currently run HP paper in my HP printer with HP ink (wow, they match!), and for the most part the paper is cooperative. My husband was actually impressed with the quality of the combination when I photocopied our licenses recently for some banking stuff. The photocopies were incredible replicas of the original, which I credit to the quality of the HP combo above. I have had horrible copy paper before (the kind your printer eats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner), and HP’s paper is a step above in my opinion.

This product has 37 reviews for 4/5 stars. As this reviewer comments:

I need to print a lot of sheet music at home no matter in color or black/white, these papers never fail me.

The only downside of this deal is that it ends today. On the upside, this case of paper ships to you for free because it costs over $45.
