    Well, this was an exercise in futility. Anybody have a similar or better experience?

    Step 1) Log onto CC and look under Pampered Perks for the special account number at OfficeMax.

    Step 2) Log on to Office Max and look for the item I want. Of course, it can't be found. I log on to the Office Max retail site and get the official Office Max part number. Search the commercial site again. Nope - not to be found.

    Step 3) Call the 877 number. Nice operator does a search and explains that the number they use is different from the number the retail side uses. OOoooookay. Makes no sense to me, but then, what do I know?

    Stpe 4) Place order with nice lady on the line. Go through all the address, email, name, credit card, yadda yadda yadda. "How many do you wish to order?" she asks.

    I ask the price. $87.95 each. "WHAT!?!?!?!" I reply calmly. Well, sort of calmly. "Those are $57.95 in the retail store!" She goes on to explain different pricing on the commercial side, yadda yadda yadda.

    Sheesh! No wonder K-Mart is wavering on the edge of the tank.

    :mad:

    Figures....

    The Office Max by me is closing down. Makes no difference to me...I always go lousy service there anyway. I think you should bring your experience up to HO, maybe they need a heads up about Office Max.

    Well, we've already discussed here whether or not the spooks from HO monitor this site. If they do, then HO knows what we all think of the K-Max office store. I've found that my local Office Max is always clean, well stocked, and has enough people asking to help me out, almost to the point of being intrusive.

    But so much for the corporate "deal."

    Some deal.

    I actually prefer Office Depot but not much. I miss the old stationery store that these clowns put out of business.

    BTW...I found the item at Wally-World for 4 bucks less than the retail store at K-Max which was 30 bucks cheaper than the special Pampered Chef deal.
