Price Match


If you find a lower advertised price on an in-stock, new identical item from an Authorized Canadian dealer, now or within 14 days of your purchase, just show us the price and we will match it!

If our competitor has a bonus offer with an item that we carry, we will match the competitor’s price and provide the identical bonus item where possible. If our competitor offers a free Gift Card with an item that we carry, we will match the competitor’s price and provide the same valued Gift Card. We do not match tender, such as gift card discounts, with our competitors.

For online and delivered purchases, the competitor must have the item in stock on their Web site, and next-day shipping and handling fees will be added to the competitor’s price to make a fair comparison against our price. If no shipping and handling charges are readily available in the advertisement, a flat fee of $15 will be added to the competitor’s price. There are some towns in Canada where additional shipping charges apply. Our Store Managers and Call Centres can help you determine these costs.

An identical item is a product with the same manufacturer and model number. An Authorized Canadian dealer is a retailer that the Canadian manufacturer willingly sells to (typically, unauthorized dealers do not offer legal Canadian warranties and/or packaging). The Price Match Guarantee does not apply to refurbished items or demos.

An advertisement is defined as a copy of a current Canadian: dated advertisement, original register receipt, catalogue page or competitor Web page.

From time to time, our online and in-store prices might temporarily not match due to printing press deadlines. If this happens, you will get the lowest price of the two.

We reserve the right to limit quantities sold to an individual customer. The price match guarantee does not apply to competitors’ or Staples advertising that states “limited quantities,” “clearance,” “close-outs,” “bankruptcies” or special events (e.g., Boxing Day, Boxing Week, Black Friday). We do not match typographical errors in competitors’ advertisements. OEM, Government and Educational prices may be excluded. Prices do not include applicable taxes and/or eco-fees. We reserve the right to modify the terms of our price match guarantee from time to time.

We are always trying to find ways to help our customers save money. One of the ways we do this is by obtaining special rebate offers from our product manufacturers. This usually means money back or free product to you, the customer.

Please read the following information for more details about our rebate offers.

Rebate Processing Time:
Please allow 8 to 12 weeks for your rebate to be processed. Check each rebate form disclosure for details as timing may vary.

Instructions, Limits and Exceptions:
Please make sure to read each rebate carefully to determine whether your purchase qualifies for the advertised rebate. Make certain you have purchased the exact product and quantity during the correct time period. Some offers also require that the customer post the offer in the mail by a specified postmark date. Be attentive to the instructions on the rebate offer form and follow the fulfillment guidelines exactly.

The majority of rebates are offered by participating manufacturers. The Business Depot Ltd. is not responsible for any part of the rebate redemption process.

Make Duplicate Copies of All Documents:
Because most rebate offers require original sales receipts and rebate forms, it is important to make copies of both and keep them with your records. Should a problem arise with your rebate redemption, having these copies will greatly assist in helping you get the issue resolved.

How to Check on Your Rebate:
If the allotted time elapses and you have not received your rebate check, please refer to the copy of your rebate form. Most rebate forms will provide specific phone numbers for you to call and/or addresses to which you can send inquiries. Should this information not be available on your rebate form, please email us and we will be happy to assist you.
