The site is user friendly. You can type in code on back of catalogue and you can shop specific book online. You can type in item number and shop exactly what you're looking for if you're using multiple catalogues and get better views. Simple to use and check out adding discounts/coupons; It won't remind you of codes for free shipping if applicable; you have to remember if it applies to your purchase before final payment. I don't like that returns are NOT free; but you can return to store which is convenient.

It's sometimes quicker to order online and have them deliver to your business; so much more convenient than shopping in store. But, certain items come in certain packaging so if you're looking to only buy 1-2 of items may not be convenient and sometime item is not available at all online so you have to go to store. The link to rewards program easy to access on site and get info or copies of coupons/discounts to show cashier at check out. NO need to print out anything.

Ordered items for remodeling bathroom; Very easy to purchase and go thru site for products. Sometimes pictures in optional views don't match actual product. It's very similar to Home Depot. Easy returns to store; shipping same easy to track online. Prices sometimes less than Home depot. Sometimes carries brands Home Depot doesn't carry or has more variations options available than Home Depot.

Many times after sales it's difficult to find items you see in mailers. But, you can find online on their site. I was able to purchase chair covers they no longer had in store thru their site and for same discounted price. If you have them order online at store they will ship to you free. This is great to save alittle money and it arrives in reasonable time. Returns are easy back to store. Also while in store they will apply coupons usually accepted in store for your online purchase which you can't do (multiple coupons) if you order yourself. Sometimes they will just give you discount even if you don't have coupon on hand (you left at home).

Using this site is simple; logging on and making changes to account is no brainer. You can even set up parent controls online so when your kids watch they have to type in PIN to unlock.
Changing payment info; starting stopping service convenient without having to re-sign back up again. You can extend easily. Very easy site to use; user friendly.

I have purchased items thru this site and it's convenient not having to go to store. You can find most items more online than in store. It will also tell you if it's in store for pick up to avoid shipping. The videos are great showing you options on how products work if applicable. But, sometimes the pictures provided are not matching product you're looking at (this is the smaller additional options for view). Shipping is quick and sometime you get items quicker than expected. You do have option to have delivered to local store for pick up if needed. Easy returns back to local store.

I have shopped on this site many times and they do have comparable items vs. Nordstrom. The problem is if you're on this site for too long it tends to freeze and crash and you have to keep going back to main group and click down to category you're looking at. When you choose an item to put in wish list or cart it sometimes gets stuck going back to main page of items listed in category. So it's hard to do continuous shopping for various items in different categories. Have used Windows and iPad systems.

The shopping site is fine you can find most of what you need works fine like office depot. But, the problem is after you have purchased going on credit site; it is financed through Citi but for some reason you cannot log on from their site.It doesn't revert back to main Staples account. So I always have to go back to Staples email and link from there; Once you log out it reverts back to Citi and you can't log back in; won't recognize your info. So you can't save bookmark. It's irritating. I log on thru Mac.

Have gone on this site periodically, it is a good site-transitions well going from different view; it offers zoom on pictures of merchandise; I like that if you put items in cart without final purchase it will keep for you like a wish list and hold until your ready; you will receive reminders if you're registered until it no longer available then will ask you to remove when you sign in again.

I have always loved this site and have bought many things over the years. Prices are competitive and free shipping/returns so convenient than looking store to store shopping. Also customer service is great. I bought something didn't get when expected and ended up getting two free things out of it. Will continue to use this as goto place before going to mall.

I have ordered from this place before, but this time it wasn't good and probably will not shop again. My total order came to $100 they offer free shipping on orders over $50 but, because my order shipping was split coming from different places I didn't qualify. This is common as Amazon and other places do the same. But, my qualifying order was $49.95 so I thought off by a nickel maybe if I called they would cut me a break since I really was ordering over that amount (not my fault coming from different places). The guy didn't seem too helpful and just blamed the computer program not being able to manipulate or adjust; that was it. I didn't want to buy anything else, so they lost my business. I went to amazon the site of ALL found all the stuff I was wanting to buy and then some so they got my money and more. Everything they offer you can find somewhere else most definitely. They should be more competitive in this environment of competitive online stores. This way they won't be in business too long.

Tip for consumers: you better have the minimum amount to qualify for free shipping or you won't get it even if you're off by .01
