    It would be awesome if you had a free sample program where we could get samples of product in return for honest reviews.  That would be a fun way to try out some products that we might not get to otherwise.

    I order for a dental office and I love that there is a medical category to purchase healthcare supplies. If you add another category that is specific for dentists, that could help! Thank you.

    It would be great if there were more items to buy with our quill points with a lower point balance that was not Candy.  It is fun to choose from little things that everyone would like.  Don't get me wrong Candy is ok but gifts are better!  Thank you :)

    Any way to get a choice of the free branded gifts that are sent?  If we have received the same thing or something similar it ends up being a waste of your dollar since we end up just passing it along.  If we could choose from some set of choices, or at least specify a preference of the type of gift as we are submitting the order (even if it's not always possible to fulfill the preference/selection) it would at least maximize the opportunity for us to receive something we would keep around with your branding on it, if that's part of the intent :).  We do appreciate the appreciation, in any case!

    I would love to be able to pay our account by check online.  That way, if we are late, we keep our "Quill" purchases in the "Quill" vendor in our accounting system and not have to go hunting around our credit card vendor for your purchases.

    I would like the option to bundle  purchases to redeem for gifts. There are times I need to purchase less than the minimum or I would like to save the credit for a future purchase.

    I'd like to see longer times to qualify for gifts.  Some things are literally available for a few days, while some are good all month.  I don't order that often, so being able to redeem the coupon codes for some gifts would be appreciated.

    Many times I start an order and get some great discounts; but with office interuptions I can't always get back to finish my order.  When I can get back to finish my order, the "great discounts" have gone back to full price.  It would be nice to get an email alert to let me know that I am about to lose my discounts on items in my shopping cart.

         It is much more convenient to get all of my office supplies at the same place.  The issue is, many times I can go to the popular .com or the the popular bulk supply sites and find the products I need at a much cheaper price. 
         For example, I needed BinderTek over the top 2 ring binders for my filing system.  They are expensive. I found them for $1.33 cheaper at the .com.  For my organization, money is the bottom line.  Gifts/prizes/etc. are worthless because we have budgets that must be followed. 
    I had to order them from the other site, even though I also needed to order things from Quill.  That means two invoices I have to code for payment instead of one.
         I know the previous mindset has been that Quill doesn't price match because they have so many incentive programs.  Unless the incentives apply to my organizations bottom line, I cannot utilize them.         Potentially, you may also think that price matching could be a hassle for you.  I would say the simple solution to that would be to have the customer handle the price match.  The buyer can call customer service and request a price match on their order and email the link so the invoice could be adjusted along with the points balance.
         This way, only those folks that truly want the price match would utilize it.  I would gladly trade points (reasonable and not unobtainable) to receive a price match.

    I think it would be a nice way to pay it Forward if we had the opportunity to donate the gifts we earn to Non-Profit Companies that are current customers of Quill.  Maybe there could be a list of Non-Profit Companies that have a posted "Wish List" and Quill would send the items to the Non-Profit instead of to us. 
    Just a thought...

    Since many people used these gifts for staff, it would be nice if I occassionally there were more gift options that were sets...travel mugs, candles, 2 candy tins.  Similar to the 2 candy dishes in October. So you have a few more smaller prizes vs. a large popcorn maker or space heater.

    We need to be able to have any of our authorized purchasers have access to Quill cash on our account.  Currently, your system tracks it by person placing the order and we have a few different people that we would like to be able to access any accumulated Quill cash.

    I think that it would be great to get the bonus points for a certain amount and also the free gift.  Especially for the LARGER purchases.  It would be a nice bonus for repeat/business customers to get the extra perks of ordering in large amounts.

    I would like to see it easier to return items. Very seldom is there something I need to return but finding the invoice is hard when I am not sure when it was purchased.

    I was wondering why during shipment of orders, some minimal items are shipped separately via Fed Ex or other paid services as opposed to having a choice as to whether we really need the items or not.  I realize it is about shipping locations and inventory, etc.  However, prior to Quill spending $10 on shipping for a .25 item, maybe we could have a choice to cancel it saving Quill money or at least add it on to another order later.  I have noticed a lot this year that some items come separate from the other ordered items and they are shipped separately in a box with bubble wrap for a inexpensive, non-urgent item.  It seems such a waste to pack a box and send it next day or overnight shipping for a minimal item.  Please consider this going forward to save Quill money in the long term.

Online votes and comments are used to help get ideas developed. Ideas that receive the most votes have a higher chance of being considered. Also, an idea may be selected because it appears to have a potential for success.

How do voting and comments work? 

As a registered user, you can vote on every idea once.  A voting icon is shown next to the idea. Just click to vote on your favorites. It’s that simple.  Each vote is worth 10 points.  A vote up will add ten points and a vote down will take away 10 points.  The idea’s score can be found beneath the voting icons. The higher the points the more popular the idea is.

Read and make comments on a specific idea by clicking on an idea title.  Comment on ideas as many times as you like. There is no limit.  Comments do not earn an idea points. 

Our site moderators will leave comments as well.  These users are identified with a User-added image icon.

Does every idea get a response?

Due to the amount of posts, we won’t be able to respond to every posting. If your idea is moved to the formal review step, you can expect to receive e-mail updates from us.  We will keep you informed if your idea is recommended for implementation and notify you of any status changes. 

Do I get recognized if my idea is selected?

If your idea is implemented, we may give you credit on the site, but there is no monetary compensation. Take a look at our Terms and Conditions to learn more.

Is there a moderator on Quill Ideas?
