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.

Trade-In parameters:

·       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.
