MEDIA ADVISORY 2/15/02
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
STAPLES HOSTS COMPUTER TRADE-IN EVENT IN STORES NATIONWIDE FEBRUARY 17-18
WHAT: Staples will host a national Computer Trade-In Event,
offering customers an
opportunity to trade in their obsolete computer for a discount on an
upgraded system purchased from Staples. Consumers will receive $100 off the
purchase of a computer with an IntelŪ PentiumŪ 4 Processor during the two
days of the event. Consumers who are not shopping for a new computer will
receive a coupon for $20 off any in-store product purchase of $100 or more.
Computers that are traded in will either be refurbished and donated to
youth organizations across the country or responsibly
recycled. Refurbishing and recycling is made possible through a
partnership with Gifts In Kind International, www.giftsinkind.org.
· Computers only--this is a computer trade-in event and we will only
be accepting computer systems consisting of a CPU, monitor, keyboard and mouse.
· Only one coupon will be awarded for $20 off the purchase of $100 in
Staples products. If the customer chooses to purchase a new system to
replace the old one being turned in, they will then receive $100 off any
new system with an IntelŪ PentiumŪ 4 Processor.
· Consumers interested in turning in multiple computers should visit
www.staples.com/recycle for information on organizations that collect and
recycle computers en masse.
