Best Office Depot Black Friday Deals from 2012
Looking back at the best Office Depot Black Friday deals from 2012, the selection definitely focused on laptops, tablets, printers, and office chairs. The deals were available in the store from 5am on Black Friday through Saturday, though some online deals began at 7am EST Thanksgiving Day.
As far as the selection went, laptops stood out the most in the four pages of ads. The main brands with deals were Samsung, Lenovo, Toshiba, and HP laptops. The HP Envy laptop with a 3rd generation Intel Core i5 processor went for $300 off its original price, settling at $499, and the Samsung Series 3 laptop with an Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor had $120 in savings, putting its price at $329. General savings across the board for all four brands of laptops were advertised around $200.
Apart from laptops, Office Depot highlighted tablets, desk chairs, and printers for sale. The main tablet deal was the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 at $179.99, taking off $70 from its original. Other tablets like the Google Nexus 7 at $229, with $20 off, had more moderate discounts. Office chairs had a nifty discount of 50% off your chair of choice. The snazziest deal was the Ruzzi Mid-Back Chair on sale for $54.99, subtracting $55 off its original price. Printers had a diverse range of sales, from the 50% off EPSON Wireless All-in-One Printer at $149.99 to the cheap option of a $39.99 Canon printer.
One of the features of last year’s Black Friday for Office Depot for both in-store and online customers post-purchase was the SurPrize coupon, a mystery coupon ranging from $10 to $250 on certain products and redeemable in the holiday season, November 27 until the end of December.
The store’s expectations for its sales fell short of reality, however, as the Black Friday 2012 traffic was less than in previous years, according to Office Depot’s Fourth Quarter 2012 Earnings Review. The sales for tablets did better than in 2011, but notebook computers (another name for laptops) saw less of a turnout than in the prior year. The hyped-up Windows 8 PCs did not lift off. The laptop discounts, then, did not help the sales enough in that last quarter of the year. The office chairs and other furniture sales did not have a good turnout either. Overall, the company decided to respond to this by reducing its peripheral products like software and bringing new emphasis to mobile accessories and headphones.
