Archos 101 8GB Android 2.2 Tablet £116.90 @ Staples - Cheapest Available!!!

90
Found 4th Nov 2011
Yesterday, I picked up an Archos 101 Internet Tablet 8GB from Staples. They price matched HMV and also got an extra 10% of the difference off.

Staples currently sell this in store for £250. With HMV currently selling for £129, Staples price matched it and the extra 10% off brought it down to a bargain £116.90. Definitely the cheapest I've seen this tablet!

Also, I assume you can use the £10 off Staples voucher on here that is valid til 6th November to get it for £106.90 (I didn't see that until after I bought it, d'oh!).

Anyway, this is my first deal posting, so grateful if you could heat it up

Heat from me!
I will heat it up because it is a good deal. I have this tablet and with a bit of tinkering it is proving very worthwhile.
Is this just instore? I couldn't find the Archos 101 on the Staples website.
Can not find this on the website
I have looked on the HMV website and I cant see it for £129. Am I going soft?


Thanks
Staples? No, thanks!
It's not on either site. Both HMV and Staples are instore deals only. Staples only price match deals that are instore too.
agrred cant see it at the shown price on HMV so deal is ded in the water..would be nice if true though...can you use the online voucher in store either??
how do you proce its insotre at HMV....
I guess yo go there see if they have stock and the price take a picture and then finally go to staples ony to find theyve run out and youve driven about all day and wasted pretol money and sat in tracffic for hours
Stupid question, if I was to go into staples, do I ask for one of these and say can you price match HMV which has it for £129? Do you need any proof? Then they price match and offer 10% off also?

It is on staples site at the price OP states, here

staples.co.uk/Tab…ite
Just rang Staples telford, they say they can't price match this item as the one they have is different from HMV's. What store was this one bought from? and do you have a code?
Staples and Vouchers should never be used in the same sentence again
With a little tweaking these are excellent tabs. Heat from me.
well ill pop into town tomorrow take a pic of the label on shelf in HMV then wander down to staples and take it from there...as ill be going that way anyway...will repotrt back on how i get on...

I hope you do understand the difference between the numbers 7 and 101.
Where do I get the £10 off voucher?
Good first post, thanks
I had staples price match CPW two weeks ago - believe me when I say that they did not want to do it.

Manager almost cried that they cost them more than the 130 I finally got it for.
Is the HMV deal still on then?

If the HMV deal is instore only how do I prove to the people at Staples that it exists?

I just searched the HMV site and it does not mention it.

It's been in national papers the tablet deal is nation wide.
can i also use my nus discount against this?
Rang HMV in Wigan, no stock and guy said they are now back to £249. He gave me Manchester store numbers and they have 9 in stock with 80 on order at £129 so looks like it's a bit hit and miss at HMV.
HMV are always hit & miss. I went into store looking for the 1tb external drive and they told me it had gone up to £79.99 even though they had 4 posters instore showing it at the £39.99 price... when I asked to speak to the Manager they then said they didn't have it in stock anyway!
Have read some reviews on this and apparently the screen is not that good
3g?

I got one yesterday from HMV. Set it up last night for my daughters Christmas. The screen was fine. This is an excellent tab. It does everything that tabs which cost 3 times as much do.
Great deal.

They wouldn`t price match for me as they said the cpw offer was a special offer and they dont price match special offers

That would be ipad lovers then, There is nothing wrong with the screen on the 101 infact this is a excellent piece of kit for the money and most who buy one won`t be disapointed.

Will staples price match even though local store is out of stock?

i doubt it
This better than the archos 70 from cpw that was on here yesterday for £99?
Edited by: "gadgetsgalore2011" 4th Nov 2011
SO they price match and knock off 10% of the price difference?

Is there anything I can print off to prove that too? I want to go armed, lol.

I believe it is basically the same except it is 10" as opposed to 7".
