285 DVD+R or DVD-R Discs for $42



Office Depot has their self-branded DVD+R and DVD-R 15-disc Spindles for $10.99. When you select in store pickup, the price drops to $5.49 for each spindle. You can buy 19 packs (mix & match) for $42 by applying 50% off coupon 82911916 and $10 off $50 coupon 24650129. Thanks The Boss.

The price is not $5.49 for all stores. The discs have Ritek media codes.

i’ve bought some of that media before and didn’t have much luck with them.


So the -R’s are Ritek what are the +R’s? :bigsmile:


Great deal but looks like I am sh** out of luck. :a


Can someone post a kprobe scan just to be sure they are truely Ritek?


according to videohelp.com database the + are Riteks R02



Yeah but are we sure that all of them are Ritek? It’s not uncommon for store labels to use multiple manufacturers. Also, which stores are these valid at?


I just tried a local store online and all the coupons worked except the last one and that’s only cause the store I picked had 14 packs and not 19, but even 210 DVds came to $40 for local pickup.


You can get more of the details on the fatwallet thread.

I found a beter deal If you need jewel cases plus a way to get past the avalability problem. Add a spindle, go to checkout, select in store pickup at your store (then it will show the in store prices when you continue to shop). In thier search box search “office depot dvd” and it will bring up thier media with the in store prices. This is only good at some stores just like the spindles.
15 pack spindles are 5.49
15 packs with jewel cases are 6.49
You can combine them and still use the coupons. If you still cannot get high enough quantity for the coupon minimum, thier are 10 packs with jewl cases for 4.99
I got
4 15pk +r with cases
7 15pk +r spindles
3 15pk -r with cases
2 10pk +r with cases
2 10pk -r with cases
(I should have oreder 4 -r 10 pk instead of 2/2 but it’s too late. I hope the +r’s are at least decent).
Total 103.82
tax 3.46

Total 45.36 (for 250 dvd’s and 145 jewel cases)
You get the jewl cases for next to nothing with the 15 packs so to me its beter.


Latest word is that OD Corporate is shooting this deal down. They’re claiming the coupon is expired and sending out notices to the local stores.


exactly what my local Office Depot informed me …i just got back from there.


Visa coupon good through 2/28/2005
50% off through3/5/2005

Which one? Just got home with 19 spindles for 45.94 inc. tax.


dang, missed a killer deal :frowning:


Yeah, the Office Despots killed it this morning.


just like them to kill the deal cause its a good price i just placed a order and it went through im going to be pissed if i get there and they back out on it


Apparently a number of people have been denied this morning judging by the last page on the Fatwallet thread.


they just called me and said no go on the order. i wouldnt bother trying at this point.
