Found 20th Mar 2013
2 for £20 on clear 'Really Useful Boxes'

I've ordered two packs, which means that is 4 of these boxes for £40 with free delivery. Delivery is free above £30

staples.co.uk/sto…-20


£5 off £30 spend code 301611
- Speculator


So...with Quidco at 8% (thanks to blue001145) and with £5 off a £30 spend (thanks to Speculator8) that should (if my maths are correct) make these £31.80 for 4 boxes delivered (delivery free over £30)!

can get it cheaper from pound shop. sorry!

These boxes are stronger, and much better quality, and will last a lifetime. Perfect for students, businesses, and families alike. I recently bought some to use as storage until i move out of my parents home.

"Really Expensive Boxes" They are useful though & good quality. Wish they were a bit cheaper.

Yeah, that's fair enough. I was just posting that these are a good deal. Usually they are £17 to £18 each.

Best price available when they do these deals; always. I have bought more in bulk from eBay if you want higher quantities though(Your picture is of the 32 litre one FYI). Heat

No you can't. You get some inferior junk that won't last 5 mins from the pound shop. These however are quality and the cheapest I've seen so deserve some heat.

I do need some of these for moving out soon, but £20 for two!?

Don't forget Quidco. Staples are currently paying 8% which reduces the price to £18.40 a pair!

Muppet! Since when have pound shops sold 64l Really useful boxes?

These are in a different league to pound shop boxes (which I've had many over the decades and do ok for some jobs) but wont get 64l versions anything like as strong and durable as these. I got fed up of replacing low quality rubbish ones and bought loads of these and have nothing but priase for them for their price. I tend to get the 4 set when on offer at Viking, but been looking for a deal on the 64l ones, so heat from me, thanks.

I'm going to use them for long-term storage. If you just need them for moving (and not storing) then these are probably a bit over-kill for that.

Not sure, but there is an option to get them delivered to store when you go through the order process.

I ordered them at about 6pm last night and they've already arrived, if that helps?

Entirely agree that these boxes cannot be compared to the cheap ones found in supermarkets, etc - these are made of polypropylene, which makes them virtually unbreakable. They won't crack, split and the handles break off, as the cheaper ones will. 64 litres (IMHO) is too big for the heavy stuff that these boxes will take with ease - filled with books, for example, I could never lift one. ~35-42 litres is the best size, again, YMMV. This is an incredibly good price for boxes that will probably outlast you....

Dont B&M sell these? Lol

good price, don't forget to use the spend £30, £5 off code 301611

I'll give it a go...I just used the picture off the Staples website. Thanks for the heads-up!

If you decide to use the above code, you will need to spend a further 83p for free P&P.

Also, remember to delete "order care" by clicking it and ticking the box if you don't want it.

I bought some rolls of gift wrap, reduced from £2.08 to 83p. In total, £36 for 4 x 64L Really Useful boxes or £9 each.


I went thru TCB for 6.06% but will make a highest cashback claim to match Quidco. The cashback will be converted to Tesco points for Tesco rewards.


Many thanks to the op, these are £14.99 each @ Tesco Direct.

They're not at all unbreakable, but unlike pound shops and B&M they don't crack because you look at them the wrong way. I've had lids crack and the ridges crack off, amongst other things, the plastic is strong but quite inflexible so if you drop one or shove it too hard it is possible to break. I wouldn't use any other brand though, it's a false economy to go to the pound stores.

I use these in the loft, but as has been mentioned, there's precious little you can put in a 64l box without making it impossible to move, I tend to shove them in the loft empty then use a smaller box to transfer the contents up.

TCB/Quidco is based on the ex VAT amount (2 x boxes £33.34 plus 83p gift wrap) before voucher (£34.17)

Edited by: "Speculator" 20th Mar 2013

These boxes are worth the price! No other box would have stood up to the crap I've out them through! I wouldn't trust any other box.

You can get these in store (depending on availability) but useful code and Quidco makes this a better deal. Great boxes and great deal - thanks for posting OP.

Really good price for these boxes as they are superb quality.
Asda had the 35 litre size for £10 a while ago and that was a good deal...this is even better.

My four boxes have just been delivered, individually boxed and in perfect condition together with my one roll of xmas wrapping paper!

Would you believe it, I've just had 10 of these delivered and, yes, one had a broken lid. I've been using Really Useful boxes for years and never managed to break one.

Quidco tracked at £2.73 for me. I went with a dustpan and brush for a filler item to get free postage. Quality seems very good. Actual cost for me is just under £33 for all 4 boxes taking into account quidco and c/card cashback. So about £8 each.

u heard of ikea? these are 7 quid in there

wkkrazy

I had a quick look on the ikea site and all I can see is the standard weak non-reinforced models you can get elsewhere for similar money.

http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/00102975/

It's £2 extra for a lid and 80p for the lock. So about the same as the staples product except much, much weaker. Also my local ikea is 50 miles away.

If you need to buy more of these, like 3 packs of 2. There is a £5 code available off £50 including VAT (staples03)and you can also use a free gift code with it to get either a touch screen mp4 player (CBP-75579) or remote control car (W6-75129)

Oops, mine arrived in perfect condition, although I prefer to buy from HobbyCraft when they're on offer, because they wrap them up in so much bubble wrap, it's like a discount for me (I sell a lot of stuff on Ebay).

It does take some effort to break them though, Staples don't take too much care, our local store always has broken ones on display, presumably when the staff dropped them.

Thanks. Ordered Oty 3 for six boxes with voucher code working out at £9.16 each and if quidco tracks that'll be a further saving. Hot!

D'oh, wish I read all the comments fully before committing to order. I have no need for more plastic in the house as I'll just need a box to store it in but I'm always happy for free stuff!

Great Price! I ordered some last night. Plus its 10% on Quidco at moment. Plus the £5 off work. Plus Quidco tracking confirmed.

I ordered 6 - approx. £8.73 each. BARGAIN! As these boxes are brilliant!

Damn it! Missed out on the Freebie MP4 Player though!

As the saying goes "you only get what you pay for" So true the amount of money i have wasted before buying these on cheap crappy boxes just does'nt bear thinking about. Seriously you won't regret buying these!
