    This is soooo NOT COOL!! I have been to two local Staples on 3 occasions. No issues at any of these times with three different salespeople. One visit I bought two 75-pack's...they weren't thrilled as the total without tax pre-discount was $200 BUT they honored it without question because it said "Shipped and Sold by Amazon" AND I questioned their 110% price match policy before I put down my items.

    I also just bought a 24-pack of markers today. The young salesperson nor the manager batted an eye. The manager was running around like crazy but she saw the price.

    Try going at a different time of day. You are not doing anything wrong! It is insane that a 75-pack of pencils is $100...it isn't even this price normally on Amazon.

    I just called Staples and bought two for $16.40 each ($24-$7.60). Tried to price match via chat but had issues with rep. Called and it was done in two minutes.

    Was that the 24 pack of double sided markers that a previous poster mentioned, that came with a carry case? If so, can you please tell me Staple's price and how much you got them for? Thanks for any info!

    Yes. I bought:

    Regular price $75.99
    Amazon price $35.10

    Great, thanks! If you've had a chance to try them out yet... how do you like them? Are they worth the cost? :-)

    I haven't yet. Stashed away from my kids in my secret hiding space. �� They have rave reviews on Amazon...my only other marker experience is with my 24pk of Sharpies so I am looking forward to having the intricate tip of the brush.

    They're great! The brush tip is so nice to color/draw with.

    I have also heard that the brush tip is better to draw/color with. The chisel tips can be kind of clunky. I'm sure they have their fans (perhaps more for graphic arts stuff where you need lots of straight lines/letters/numbers?), but I think most general use is better with the brush tip.

    They do have a bit of an odor (alcohol, I think). And they do bleed thru a lot of thinner paper (probably in part due to the qualities that make them blend-able) - stick a couple scrap pieces of paper, or some cardboard under your work area. For those reasons, I would not let a young child use them - same as any other high quality $$$ art material.

    You can also add favorite colors individually. Plan on doing that at my local art store once I get my set.
