Instore only and they should be live first thing in the morning

i forsee many many bobs being very very happy around the country tomorrow ;-)

i hope you are right ron, or the dole brigade will be after your blood.

Why would they drop the price to a uniform £1. It doesn't make sense. You do a 50% sale or even 75% off. I imagine that there will be lot of unhappy punters tomorrow.

Great marketing ploy to get people through the door. You never know whilst there people may just buy something else!

cheers will take a look

There getting rid as they have just started to stock energiser batterys instead.

what he said ^^^

Just got a hard on ............

Can anyone confirm if this deal is definitely on pls?

This deal is for real , there selling them off as now they sell energizer instead so are clearing them out.

nothing in bristol

Just got a few packs all at £1 at the branch in York. Voted Hot - thanks OP -

Just stocked up from the Basingstoke Branch......about 30 packs left on a stand next to the photocopiers. Heat added....bargain!! Thanks.

This deal is for real??? Really??
I just phoned and the woman told me there is no such offer (London store, SE), except on the disposable batteries - i.e. ALKALINES - which makes sense. She said they were just getting rid of the older stock.
But that's just the alkalines, not even the rechargeables!!!

What the hell!

aseddon130 and cbwudang, where did you hear of this, and why am I getting a completely different story from the horse's mouth?? Would the customer relations lady lie to my face??
She even asked someone in the background to be sure, then came back to me and told me the same thing.

Why the hell would they even sell off their RECHARGERS (worth £14+, as you pointed out) when these are not consumables! It's not like the HAVE to get rid of them! It's not like the chargers expire! (nor the rechargeable batteries, as far as I know, though maybe they have some sort of limit, but it would be measured in decades if at all, so there would be NO RUSH on this, thus no rush to sell off anything!
And it's not like Staples is a poky cornershop where they lack the shelf space so they need to make more room by taking a bath on these items! So WHY WOULD THEY DO IT???

I smell bull.

If I am wrong, tell me why that is, and WHICH store in London is doing it.

Lol, yeah, I'm getting hacked off!

It's just that I really DO need some rechargeables AND a recharger or two, so this would have made my month (yeah, don't say it) making my disappointment all the more bitter in my mouth! I even woke up earlier than normal by a couple of hours, so I am EXTRA FLIPPING GRUMPY!

DAMN YOU, Staples, DAMN YOU, aseddon130 .


Edited by: "Shoesize" 16th Mar 2011

OK, no replies.

Man, I knew this was all just bull.

A Duracell Supreme Rechargeable AA - 4 PACK = £11+
The AAA = same.

How ON EARTH people could believe these would suddenly just be sold off for £1?
Clearly total nonsense.

I can confirm the deal is on. There was a big basket of them in Torquay. I had to ask to check the price as they weren't labelled, but they were all £1.

Thanks for the tip off. Definitely hot hot hot!

Thanks OP.
Just bought some, I appreciate you taking the time to post.

And I won't be saying what I bought and won't be post pictures, receipts, & instore videos.

Shoesize, you're gonna be eating your words soon and needing those batteries to run your pacemaker.

Can anyone confirm whether they were able to obtain rechargables or a charger for £1 please?

None in Northampton, staff mildly confused as to where they have all gone. Only an Energiser display at the front of store.

Yeah, maybe.
I dunno, it still makes no sense.

Just got a shed load at Hermiston Gait Edinburgh. There are about a dozen packs left on the shelf to the left of the till. This DOES include rechargeables and I got 4 packs of Duracell Supreme 2450mAh (AA x 4) for a quid each no chargers left though as staff had cleaned them out. Chargers were £16 down to a quid.

Includes duracell ultra power with built in power test and they are 8 packs for AA and AAA

They are no longer stocking hence the crazy prices.

PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN, B-TARDS! Pic of the shelf with OFFICIAL Staples label clearly showing the description that says RECHARGEABLE, AND a pic of the till receipt! AAAAARGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!



It is indeed TRUE. I just purchased 10 4AA Rechargeables for £10. This is VERY hot. This was at the Cardiff store in a bucket at the tills. And here's the proof:

Seems the staff in the Colchester branch will be alright for batteries for a good while. All gone at 08:00 this morning.

Confirmed in Hartlepool. They're not marked as £1, but are scanning at that price and are going fast.
Just bought several different types and sizes, all at £1.
No pics, though, as shoesize's mental breakdown is amusing me.

The very helpful assistant I spoke to confirmed the reason for the sale was as mentioned above (Energizer are subsidising the clearance of all Duracell products so their own stuff can be promoted). He also confirmed that chargers were included in the promotion, but his manager had snapped up the two in stock. (Shame, but can't blame him really!)

well i did say it varies between branch, i should know about the deal because i work at Staples.

I can't comment on whether the staff have rifled through them all, how can i stop that happening across the country?

Okay, I've decided that's cruel, so I'll save Shoesize his breakdown and show my receipt...
