    Sometimes I just need to order a couple of cartons of paper, but if I want to get a good price, it's required that I have a minimum order of $175+.  I cannot always order that much for office supplies at one time, so getting a good price on paper all the time would be ideal.  I tend to shop around to try to get the best price on paper.  Please consider lowering your prices on paper, or allowing the sale price by itself without a minimum purchase requirement.

    I wish you would make the copy paper deals not dependent on spending $175.00. Sometimes you just need copy paper.

    Most of the time you announce atractive Copy Paper Specials BUT locking the price to up to 2 boxes and then regular price or 2 boxes but only if you buy X amt of other items is not a good practice. Personally I don't even bother in opening those emails and they go directly to the paper bin.
    My Idea, If you want to lock the purchase to a Max quantity, fair, but do not condition the price to buy other stuff that I do not need at that moment. This is not even my Idea, Its a regular practice with Staples or Office Depot so I usually prefer their Paper special than Quill's

    It would be nice if an item requires you to purchase a certain amount that you show it as a package. Not list that you have to order in multiples of 2, 4, 10 etc. 
    For example staples, I used to be able to purchase 1 box, now you require at least 2, just set up the website as a package instead. This would reduce the confusion when trying to order.

    Another example is paper. some of your paper only allows you to order by the carton, but you have to enter how many reams instead. So if you only want a ream, you cannot order that paper. If you only sell by ream, the website should show by ream/pack or it you are required to order a carton, put the quantity to be order as a carton instead. example 901-720223. Website should show carton not by the ream. It makes it harder to order and confusing when you are trying to find the best price by the ream.

    The special $2.99 per ream is a regular offer, that comes on then goes off.  We sometimes know to wait until the next cycle of the special price to purchase paper, which holds back orders that we should be placing.  Why not have an everyday low price of the $2.99 per ream to increase you business with volume buys on paper and regular order cycles from your customers.

    I've noticed that your price for Hammermill copy paper for just one case is a good $30+ than if I ran down the street to my local Staples/Office Depot. This is a high ticket item that not only I use but I'm sure many other businesses use as well. I'm also sure that they can't understand why your price is so high.

    I would like to be able to order as many boxes of paper as I like when it is on sale and not be limited to 3  boxes and also not have to meet a dollar amount to qualify for sale price.

    We don't always need other items when paper is on sale.

    We are an accounting office and use large amounts of paper especially during tax season. We would love to be able to stock up when paper is on sale .

    Thanks

    It would be nice if the limit on how much paper you can purchase when it is on sale was higher.  We are a small accounting & tax service and paper is a necessity. We order all year long to have pleanty for tax season, however we are always limited to the number we are aloowed to purchase and we have to have a minimum order amount.
    We are trying to save money and then have to spent to get the sale price.

    Offering a paper sale a few times a year with a higher limt and no minimum on the purchase would be great!

    I love being able to order paper at $2.99 a ream because we seem to go through so much paper. However, I don't like that it's limited to 2 or 3 cases at a time, it requires an additional purchase, and the paper always comes with ripped up wrappers and boxes. It looks horrible in the paper cupboard.  Lifting the quantity or additional purchase requirement, or both for that matter would help because sometimes when I order paper all I need is paper and a lot of it.

    You check out the good deal on the web site of copy paper of $31.90 per carton. But--when you actually go to order it at $31.90 - there's always a catch that will say "this price at $31.90 with an order of $175.00 or more". Our company is small and at times all we need is 2 cartons of  paper and nothing else but we can't get it at that price, it's always more. My suggestion is that sometimes - not all the times - lift those "price" restrictions for us smaller companies. Let us get the GOOD deals too!!

    I had to order printer paper for our office and was looking at all the options available. What I found is that there is no true discount on ordering in larger quantities. If you buy by the ream, the carton, or even the pallet, it factors out to all cost the same price per ream. If someone is ordering an entire pallet of paper, you figure they should be able to save a little more than someone buying a carton or even a couple reams. Bulk normally means bigger savings.

    It's hard to find quality copy paper at a good price, so it would make it nice to have more copy paper deals or a lower bottom line all the time.  When you have a coupon, it seems like there is always a limit on the quantity if it is on sale or there are restrictions to have a minimum.  So, when you need 10 cartons of paper, you can only get 2 at a decent price.   Lower the copy paper permenantly or allow a higher quantity at the lower prices.

    I'd like to be able to order a pallet of paper at your special price.  When you have a special price of paper it is limited to only 1-3 cases of paper, typically.  I'd like to be able to purchase a pallet of paper at these great prices.

    Please stop with the Ridiculously High Priced items interspersed in with normal priced items.
    If you must offer them, please add a new catagory and maybe call it "Items for Millionaires"
    For Example... when searching for a ream of card stock, typically priced at $13-$17, I shouldn't have to scroll through and past reams that are $157-$250 a ream. Are you kidding me? Who buys that stuff? I seriously doubt that folks that can pay that much for paper, are not shopping with Quill, a discount supplier for the rest of us.  Meanwhile, it slows down my search and efficiency.

    It would be nice to be able to suggest a product that is not currently offered at Quill that I am getting from another vendor, and then actually see it offered by Quill at a competitive rate.  I have a vendor that provides a certain brand of a product that Quill does not currently offer and this vendor does not deliver.  It is very inconvenient to have to go get and transport this product. This product is purchased once a month, every month by our office.  My employer insists that we use this brand of product.

    We have to call our representative to get the amount of paper we want at a good price.  I would love to be able to just order when I need it instead of having to contact someone there to do it for me.  Also, I sometimes have coupons that I could use if I did the ordering myself.

    I think there should be coupons back in Quill cash or other coupon incentives for purchasing a minimum of three boxes of paper.  Paper is very expensive and everybody buys it.
