If nothing else, you would think since they are owned by Staples that pricing would be the same between those 2 websites.  I've found items $50 cheaper on the Staples website + they were offering a $20 rebate.  My Quill representative matched the price, but wouldn't give the $20 rebate OR let me use those purchase dollars for free items.

I took over my Property in February and have never heard from an Account Manager but they do fill my email daily with emails. I too wish there was some price matching. I have recently been getting some items from another supply store. As a 501(c)3 it's important to stay within budget.
Posted on 6/29/2018

I just called them about price matching an Printer.  They said they DO NOT have an offiical price match policy, but that they would look into it.  They were selling the printer for $249 and I said Amazon was $116. They said that they wouldn't match them.  So, I gave them BestBuy's name (also $116 there) and she said, that one works.  She then looked it up, verified the price, and then came back and said, "SORRY, that price is below our price, we can't price match".    

So, a few days later, Quill happens to mail me some coupons - I was able to use a $50 off coupon - bringing the price to under $200 for the printer.   If they had just taken the price match when I originally called, they would have gotten more dollars out of me.  Kinda of a silly policy.

Quill is wonderful with price-matching if you work with your sale rep.  They have met or beat almost every Staples price i've given them!
Posted on 7/05/2017

Quill does price match - sort of. We love the customer service at Quill and want to order everything from them, so I called customer service and they gave our office a better deal than the other company we were looking at. Plus, our service rep follows up by phone and email occassionaly to tell us about the latest deals and coupons and that is greatly appreciated!
Posted on 5/08/2017

They will price match, I do it all the time!  Just call or email your sales rep and tell them that you found it cheaper elsewhere.  they will meet, come close or beat their competitors.
Posted on 10/04/2016

We are a non-profit organization and have a very strict budget (like most businesses do).  I use Staples Business Advantage 80% of the time because their prices cannot be beat by Quill.  I do order from Quill when the prices are within a $1.00 or so.  Price comparisons with actual prices (with our business accounts, not the regular websites) would be greatly appreciated.
Posted on 5/31/2016

Price comparisons with other vendors, will help speed up procurement for supplies
Posted on 1/29/2016

Good idea!  Quill's prices are usually the best, but there are times when we find things cheaper elsewhere.  We would really like to make all of our purchases from Quill, as the service is THE BEST!!

Posted on 10/01/2014

I also love this idea of price matching.
Posted on 9/26/2014

Price matching is a great idea even though we do love the convenience and quickness of the orders we place.  We are a very small business and try to keep office supply costs to a minimum.
Posted on 9/26/2014

I have found alot of the same products at bulkofficesupply.com for ALOT less. Price matching is a great idea!!!!!
Posted on 9/26/2014

Y'all have price matched me one time and it was FAB!
It would be great if you could do it all the time!
Posted on 9/03/2014

Ideally Quill would offer the lowest prices as 'shopping around' can be extremely time consuming but if you spend the time and find a lower price, Quill should match that price.  Great idea!!
Posted on 8/27/2014

Price matching is great.  Since Quill is owned by Staples you would think that prices would be comparable, but that is not always the case.
Posted on 8/26/2014

Great idea!!! I usually look around online and at the local office supply stores for big ticket items to see where I can get it cheaper.
Posted on 8/26/2014

This would be a great idea!
Posted on 8/26/2014

I have a great Quill rep and most item's are cheaper for me. Plus you have to take in to account that quill is free shipping regardles of amount of $ spent. Other places you have to spend a certain dollar amount to get the free shipping and shipping can add up very quick!
Posted on 8/26/2014

Staples owns Quill so pricematching between the two should work. The difference is sometimes $5-$6 for each item which adds up to a lot! It gets tough when you need to have limited receipts for the Non-Profit finance director while at the same time trying to save money and my hourly cost at the company.

Posted on 8/26/2014

I like the idea.
Posted on 8/26/2014

I also use StaplesLink.com and Sam's Club for office, breakroom, and cleaning supplies. I had a Quill representative contact me to find out how much we're paying on each item at those places compared to what I pay if I get it through Quill. I made an Excel spreadsheet and not one single item was cheaper through Quill. I sent the list to the rep and she said they went over it and weren't able to go any lower on my pricing. I'll be ordering the majority of my supplies exclusively through StaplesLink.com from now on. The only upside to Quill is that I don't need to have a minimum order for free shipping. If I need one thing then I might order it here so I don't have to come up with other things I don't really need at that time just to get the free shipping.
Posted on 8/26/2014

Great idea!
Posted on 8/26/2014

It would be great to have price matching easily available .
Posted on 8/13/2014

While price matching IS available, it'd be nice not to have to contact a customer rep every.single.time someone is cheaper (which has been quite frequently lately).  I just purchased my new printer from Amazon for $25 cheaper because it took WAY too long to get hold of someone through the chat system.

Posted on 8/06/2014

I use Staples as well. I often will place my order with the company that offers the best deals and Quill is not always that company.
