Office Depot Simplifies Shopping! #ShopOmni @OfficeDepot #ad

034

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!

Disclosure: I received an Office Depot gift card to faciliate this review and was compensated by Office Depot for my time. For more information, about Omni Channel, visit http://bit.ly/1eNfPD6.

    Love the ability to order online and pick up in the store – such a time saver.

    Ugh! Ink shopping is the worst. I’ve definitely done the price comparing online before, but never picked it up in store. There’s a location less than a mile away I should try.

  3. 3

    Very good to know. I never thought of shopping this way. I either shop online with shopping or shop in store. I never thought to combine. Thanks.

    I always seem to have my kids in tow, so anything that makes getting into the store and out faster is always better! Especially when it’s a store I like like office depot; but not particularly a kid’s interest store.

    I had no idea you could order online for Office Depot!! Thank you for saving me time and headaches. I love that I can order ink, which I need, and just pick it up while I am running errands. I am always worried I am going to get to the store and forget which number ink I need.

    I love being able to order online! I use ink all the time and I buy it from Office Dept!

  7. 7

    I absolutely love this idea of ordering online and picking it up in the store later in the day!

  8. 8

    I didn’t know Office Depot offered this service now! I love being able to order at home or from an app and then just pick it up at the store. It’s such a time saver.

    I’m a huge Office Depot fan. They ship and deliver SO fast; it’s so convenient!

    Sounds like such an easy process! I’ve never done a ship-to-store type option because I was worried that something would go wrong but it’d be nice to not have to pay shipping OR have to spend time wandering around the buliding so in store pick up sound slike the best of both worlds.

    Thanks for sharing this, Mitch! I had no clue that I could do pick up in stores with Office Depot too. I do this quite often with other stores and it’s always a plus for me when I find more stores that offer this.

  12. 12

    I really like the idea of using Paypal to pay – I love having credit available there and using for essentials from time to time. I like that Office Depot is making it convenient to order from them for the small and home business person like us!

  13. 13

    Oh, I love this! Generally any time I go to Office Depot I’m in a hurry and trying to keep my little guy from destroying the rows of ink cartridges! This will be so helpful!

  14. 14

    Love the convenience of this. I shop at Office Depot all the time, but didn’t know about their online order/pick up at store service.

  15. 15

    Yay for coupons! And your local store is south of TIMES SQUARE?! That’s very exciting to me!

  16. 16

    I love that stores like Office Depot are making life so much easier for people. I’ll be trying out the ShopOmni very soon!

  17. 17

    I really should do that with my ink as well. I’m forever thinking I know what I need only to get to the store and realize that I really don’t remember those numbers after all! This online convenience and time saving step is for me!

  18. 18

    Wow, it’s crazy to think your order was ready that quickly – and on Cyber Monday of all days! I love the convenience of shopping online…I did 90% of my holiday shopping from home this year.

  19. 19

    i’m awful remembering what kind of ink i need. and actually- reading this i was like OHHH!! I need printer ink!! because i have xl too. silly.

    i love being able to order online and pick up in store- makes life easier and less expensive (i don’t browse and find extras)

  20. 20

    I had no idea that Office Depot allows you to do that! I love the idea of ordering online while I am too busy to really go shopping, and then just stopping in and grabbing my stuff! How easy!

  21. 21

    Mitch,
    What a handy time saver. I love shopping, too, but because in person shopping is a time drag I appreciate any and all tips on placing an order online and then picking up stuff.

    I do a ton of shopping online! It’s so much easier than taking my girls out. I need some new ink for my printer! I will check this out!

  23. 23

    I love the convenience of shopping on line (and using those online coupons) and then picking it up at the store…it makes life so much easier, especially if you have little ones with you that don’t really want to shop around.

  24. 24

    It’s so convenient to be able to shop for ink online! Office Depot definitely makes it easy!

  25. 25

    I sure wish that was my local Office Depot store! I’m so jealous of the fact that you live in NYC. :) I love this idea; it’s a great way to eliminate the chance that someone will snatch the last box of the ink you need before you get there!

  26. 26

    I am not a shopper, so this would be really handy for me. I’m always online. I can’t stand when I get to the store and they don’t have what I need. This would insure that that doesn’t happen;)

    (I still love your header;) )

  27. 28

    Wow! Not that is awesome and great customer service. Saves time during this busy month!

  28. 29

    I have never tried the order online and pick up at the store method of shopping. I think I would like it though because Ido not like to shop.

  29. 30

    How convenient and easy. I’ll have to try that for my next order I hate wondering around those stores looking for things I need.

  30. 31

    I didn’t know they offered this service. I might just have to check this out.

  31. 32

    I love that you can use paypal as a payment option with the online ordering. I too always have money in the banana stand….ummm…I mean in my paypal account. You also reminded me I need to order printer ink too. Better head to Office Depot online asap!

  32. 33

    I really love Office Depot. They have great deals!

  33. 34

    Oh, I am all about anything that is a time-saver! Even better when you can find additional discounts and coupons online. It looks like Office Depot is succeeding at making the shopping experience much more simple and convenient!

  34. 35

    I love ordering online and then grabbing it at the store. I hate lines.

  35. 36

    I’m glad that Office Depot finally has an option to order online and allow customers to pick it up from the store. That’s a wonderful addition and makes things easier too.
