The above is my local office Depot store, just south of Times Square.
I had run out of ink and thought for the purpose of this sponsored campaign, I would submit an on-line order for the ink that I needed. I have 2 different printers that have different ink requirements, so ordering ink becomes a complicated process whereby I create lists that I have to bring to the store. By sitting at home, I was able to just type in the ink that I needed, without creating any lists. In fact, I was able to price compare with the regular size vs. the “XL” sizes of ink that are offered. I often do this in the store at the counter, and no one appreciates that waste of cashier time as the line behind me seems to increase exponentially!
I was testing out the Office Depot Shop Omni program:
I had a variety of ways to test this new system, I chose to do an on-line order for in-store pick-up. I submitted the order on Cyber Monday to really test this new method of shopping!
I submitted the order right before I took my son to school, at 8 am and it was ready for pick-up in less than an hour!
As you can see, I also used a coupon! I always check bing.com and google.com before I on-line shop! Office Depot did not disappoint!
I drop my son at school at 8:15 am and then head to the gym. This day, after the gym, I headed up to Office Depot.
Everything was ready, I was in and out of the store in less than 5 minutes.
I now have all the ink I need for both printers, and extra pencils for my son’s homework!
I love to shop, so going to the store is something I enjoy, and this new Shop Omni system made for a very smooth process. I may try to order on-line next time and test the system that way, Sometimes I do get lazy and it takes me a few days to get to the store, having my ink delivered may end up being quicker. The other bonus is I can use paypal as a payment option as well, I always have a credit there.
You can buy online and have your order in 1 hour. You can buy online and return in store. No hassle! Plus, there is free wi-fi in all Office Depots!
Lastly, I always suggest you try it out for yourself if you are skeptical. This worked great for me, here is the Shop Omni link for you to give it a try to make your life easier!
