Quill sends everybody emails right?  Quill advertises a coupon and says click here,
you do and the coupon is nowhere to be found.  Or at least not for me.

I would like the coupon center to offer what coupons are available when you select an item into your cart. Like ink toner. So you dont have to go find the ink toner deals

I would like using your Quill+ benifits to be more obvious at checkout.

We love the gifts, but you have too many restrictions.  If my total purchased is $200 then I should qualify for that gift.  Most of the time it restricts me to buying kitchen stuff which is not what I am purchasing.  If you want more business remove the restriction like other the other stores.  Also if your paper cases were cheaper then most of us would buy more stuff from Quill.

The ink and toner copouns should be allowed as long as you purchase the required amount and not count in the calculation of dollar amounts to get the regular gifts.

Please offer more coupons for the lower cart amounts.  I would prefer more of the food type treats instead of the dishes.
Posted on 3/01/2019

The coupons are supposed to be able to combined, but fail a lot of the time
Posted on 3/01/2019

User-added imageWhen checking out, a list of coupons or other items to choose from in a box that can be used for that purchase. A dollar amount off purchase, quill cash, gifts, or gift cards can be among those to choose from so that the consumer does not have to toggle back and forth from the coupon center and back to the cart to see what coupons are available for that purchase. Titled ‘’I CHOOSE....’’,

I like the Starbucks gift cards as rewards but it would be nice to have gift cards from other companies as well. 
Posted on 3/01/2019

Coupons go directly to cart. This would be alot easier then having to go to clipboard and try all coupons. Also allow more then 5 coupons to be saved at a time.
Posted on 3/01/2019

The coupon setup is not user friendly.  It takes too many keystrokes.
Posted on 3/01/2019

Having an esier access to available coupons on the checkout page would be extremley helpful
Posted on 3/01/2019

I would like to see available coupons on item as ordered instead of clicking at the checkout end.
Posted on 3/01/2019

I would love it if Quill would have the available or qualifying coupons at checkout. This way we don't have to go to that screen and scroll through the ones we qualify for. 
Posted on 3/01/2019

I agree with more options for the lower quanitites (many times the $99 threshold is the same gifts over and over (it's fine to repeat occasionally) or just very limited....the fields cookies, the money off, and 2 other items)
And/or being able to save from one order to the next, to earn higher rewards is a neat option.
I agree that many items are more female (and one person) based, vs being able to share/use in the office.
I'm not a fan of the starbucks giftcards, if I do get that option, I have gotten the giftcard a couple times....but I think only one (if that!) has been used!
Posted on 3/01/2019

It would be nice if credit was always the default choice at checkout instead of having to check that option.
Posted on 3/01/2019

I would like to be able to save more than the current number of allowable items in my “Save for Later”

Posted on 3/01/2019

It would be nice if you could pick a coupon and have it go directly to your cart instead of into the coupon clipboard. I think the coupon clipboard is kind of a pain to use. Then, if I end up with too many coupons or I can't use them all, I can just delete them from the cart, but at least they're there where I can see them.
Posted on 3/01/2019

Coupons - Being able to show all possible ways and which ones you can apply as you check out (avoiding the time in going into the coupon area and having to dd coupon)

Checking out - Allow to view both, shared and unshared cart at the same time, in case anything needs to be moved. 

Also allow more space for (Save for later) 
Posted on 3/01/2019

I would like to see a box or panel along side the cart with suggested available coupons that would work with the cart contents. or coupon reminders for example "spend $6.97 more to get this coupon". This would save the time of scrolling all thru the coupon center before shipping as well as eliminate the situation in this example. "Oh dear, I missed that $5 off coupon on pens" moment after the purchase is complete.
Posted on 3/01/2019

"Shared cart" has been difficult for our office.  Usually you offer a promo for using shared cart.  My office members add their items.  When I go to checkout all items transfer to "my cart."  Therefore the "shared cart" promo does not work because it is now in "my cart,"  Each time we make an order i have to call in and have them apply the promo.
Posted on 3/01/2019

Allow coupons to pop up automatically if you reach a limit, versus having to go to the Coupon Center, download, and then add! 
Posted on 3/01/2019

Add coupons to cart automatically. 
Posted on 3/01/2019

Have the department show up on thrid party shipments.
Posted on 3/01/2019

Wished coupons went directly into the shopping cart instead of clicking again.

Will my identity be anonymous on the site? 

When you register to use the site, you will create a screen name and that will be your name when you post ideas and comments. For added privacy, you will want to pick a unique screen name rather than using your real name. Remember the ideas you post will be seen by any visitor. Read our Privacy Policy to learn how your Quill Ideas account information is handled.

Will my personal information be easily accessed by others?

No. All postings are anonymous and you are only identified by the unique screen name that you have created. Other users will never be able to contact you directly. In certain circumstances, the site moderator may need to contact you through the e-mail address that you provided during account setup. 

How are ideas selected for execution?

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?

Your ideas and comments are not reviewed before they are posted.  Any postings that violate the Terms of Use will be removed. When appropriate, we will respond to comments in a timely manner. Profanity will not be tolerated. A filter for profanity is in use. Ideas or comments that include profanity will be blocked from posting until the profanity is deleted. Users with repeated violations will receive an initial warning and possible banning from the site.  Take a look at our terms and conditions to learn more.
