Comments (139)

I thought this was a good idea until it started showing the sames coupons in different areas of the coupon page as I was scrolling down reviewing the all available coupons.
Posted on 6/14/2019

Or even having it set up like Kroger.com - where you see a coupon and you do a one click to add it to our account and then it's there until it expires. This would be time consuming and saving time for having to search for coupons each order.
Posted on 10/03/2016

I agree.  It is so time consuming to try to match up coupons or offers with
the items I need to order.  That would be such a nice surprise to get an order together and at the end have a message you just received a free  whatever because you ordered a certain item.
Posted on 1/29/2016

Especially on this site. It takes far too long to view Quill's promotions in the format currently used.
Posted on 1/29/2016

I so agree that automatic coupons would be great!  Honestly,  I don't have time to sit and research what coupons apply to my current order.  My staff are not diligent about letting me know when we are low or out of supplies so many times its a "hurry up" order.  However, they love when there's a treat that I share with them as a result of a coupon!
Posted on 1/29/2016

I would like to also be able to use my $50 coupons immedidately as opposed to using them on a future order.  Lets fix that problem.
Posted on 1/29/2016

I think that automated coupons is a wonderful idea!!
Posted on 1/29/2016

All eligable coupons should auto apply during check out.
Posted on 1/29/2016

I actually like searching for coupons, as there is always a coupon for something.
Posted on 12/16/2015

I wish once a month I would receive sales or promotions they are having for the whole month instead of a few days or a week - It would save me time just looking at one and knowing I have the month to place the order instead of only a couple of days.  I hate it when I place an order and then the next day get a discount I could have used.
Posted on 11/24/2015

As others have said, I think it would be great for eligible coupons to pop up during checkout.
Posted on 11/23/2015

Electronic coupons are supper great
Posted on 11/16/2015

I like the idea as well- but I think eligible coupons listed on the checkout page would be fine. Certainly we can all find 2 minutes to enter a code when it is provided for us easily.
Posted on 11/13/2015

 I agree, coupons that work for products you have purchased should automatically pop up for you to choose from during checkout.  I waste too much time looking for the deals and discounts!
Posted on 11/13/2015

Post what future coupoons may be
Posted on 11/13/2015

We place office supply orders at lease two times a month.  The day after we place the orders we always get these nice coupons.  At this point we can not use.

I agree with comment about it taking to long to  apply coupons.  
I have very little time for this project and Im sure i miss coupons due to the time.

We are a very good customer and we always have other compannies wanting our business..

Just saying
Posted on 11/13/2015

What is the purpose of having to search for a deal with you? We already have the account with Quill.com, if we wanted to search we wouldn't be shopping with Quill.com.
Posted on 11/13/2015

This would be great, I spend a lot of time looking for the coupons.  We donate the free stuff to the town pinic raffle drawing.
Posted on 11/13/2015

Your coupons are so frustrating.  Just placed an order yesterday, today's email has a $20 off coupon!  If I had known it was coming, I would have waited to place the order today.  My boss wants to go with a different office supply company, I keep pushing to stay with Quill.  Maybe it's time to change, they deliver next-day and I won't have to worry about hunting for coupons.
Posted on 1/07/2015

Coupons should display automatically once we select the items valid for discount.
Posted on 12/23/2014

I like it when Quill makes like simple.
Posted on 12/23/2014

I really like this idea as well it would save some time.
Posted on 12/23/2014

This is a great idea.. right now I spend so much time googling "quill coupon codes" and it would be much easier if they're readily available to us.
Posted on 12/23/2014

I agree also with the automatic coupon applied.  I believe most of us are working when we are ordering and it takes time away from our job doing this.  The paper deals are usually "if you order $250".  That is quite a bit for most of us and it would be nice to be able to combine orders within the month or something like that to get the paper deals.  All of us use copy paper.  Just my thoughts on this.
Posted on 12/16/2014

I completely agree with this, it would save so much time looking for these coupons and wondering if I missed one.

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.
