Added these to OP.

Gotta be worth a try. Just placed an order now.
#9
Well I have ordered the chair along with £5 worth of goods. Expect they will cancel the order but will wait and see. :whistling:
#10
Thanks for this,
I have just ordered the chair,
mine is starting to fall apart!
#11
it even accepts 100 chairs in your checkout with free delivery!. Don't worry I don't need any chairs
#12
Dont forget quidco! Just saved me 6%!
[admin]#13
Ok here's some advice. 1. Don't put multiple chairs in one order and 2. put some other stuff in the order also as it has a better chance of not raising flags if it looks like a normal order. I mean really if you can stock up on £20 of stuff you need anyway plus get a free chair...well that would be sweet also.
#14
OMG i just bought the chair - came up as £4.51 with delivery. I didnt order anything else with it just in case the luck runs out! would have quite fancied a laminator though! Please let this be true!

Ok so legally what happens if they realise the cock up? Will they send an email saying no that order is invalid? Will they then proceed to charge me the actual cost for the chair? Im kind of scared now!

It says on the email you receive that "This email does not constitute an acceptance of your order." So hence if the order hasnt been accepted yet, they may well invalidate it! :(
#15
Just ordered one of these myself too! Bargain if this goes thru.

Only ordered the chair, cant see them honouring it but great find if they do!
#16
Just ordered a chair on its own too. Have a feeling all these people buying chairs for 99p is gonna raise a flag somewhere though
#17
I've just ordered one myself too!

You've got to be in it to win it...as they say!

I agree. I'd be amazed if anyone gets this chair for only 99p. It won't be hard for them to check that all the orders placed for this particular chair meet the required £90 spend.

But hey, you've got nothing to lose!
#19
exactly nothing to lose at all. If it does work out i will be very happy...i have needed a new office chair for a long time!

Let me educate you excited folks on this, I discovered this last week but realised it was a technical error so didn't place an order, none of you will get your chairs simply because there is a minimum spend condition and the conformation email makes provision for this kind of error by saying it does not constitute a guaranteed sale, it is an offer, they will correct it soon now that a tsunami of orders are coming through the door

You chancers you.. :)

Thanks for the vote of confidence Arzon.:lol:
But as macray said you gotta be in it to win it.:)
If the orders get cancelled so be it.Nobody loses.
#22
£15 postage to N.Ireland - but still worth it !!!
Nice find - hope it happens
#23
Thanks - worth a pop and nothing lost if they cancel it :)
#24
Legally they are not obliged to send the order unless they confirm the order or debit monies from your credit card etc. At that stage it constitutes a contract of sale and will then be obliged to honor the price.... dont hold your breath though as I'd be surprised if this goes through.... but none the less I've tried for the chair.... nothing ventured nothing gained.:geek:

From the terms and conditions:

If an error is discovered in the price of the goods that you have ordered, we will inform you as soon as possible. In the event that you order an item and the price published on the Site is incorrect for any reason, we will contact you to let you know the correct price and ask you whether you still wish us to fulfil your order at this price. We shall be under no obligation to fulfil an order for a product which was advertised at an incorrect price.


Hence, if you order a few other items with it to "hide it", they will still charge u for the other stuff if they cancel the chair.

Anyways, fingers crossed, i could sure do with a new chair : )
#26
ordered
worth a try
#27
if it doesn't succeed at least I've discovered A3 size calendars - better than the soppy skinny ones with pictures of kittens on them (hope it fits)
Trouble is I want the calendar more than the chair and so if order is cancelled I'll have to trawl the local stationery shops.
#28
Worth a try, I also added the gift code to see if I get the stereo as it would not accept my card last time I tried for it.
#29
Thanks Bazr :)

Staples will be bankrupt soon if they give chairs and CD players with pencils and papers :-D
#30
Tried it - I'll see but somehow I'm doubtful.
#31
I did this about a year ago. Order was cancelled and also, my account was no longer accesible! Don't think they like things like this!
#32
Its not as if I ever order from Staples...so its no skin off my back if they cancel my account after I placed this order!!!!
#33
Bought this last week. To say it is poor is to flatter it.

The seat padding is non-existent and the seat height at max is too short for my desk. The back is comfortable but it isn't upright (or tall) enough for me when typing. YMMV
#34
Just ordered mine! *Fingers Crossed* : )

I ordered a chair about 3 hours ago and haven't had a email saying they declined the order yet, it says next day delivery so i hope they get my chair shipped out before they notice,

Will keep you updated!


took them about 3 hours to spot mine, so don't hold out much hope.
