    WOW! That's a dumb move!

    Staples recently cut the amount they will pay for empty ink jet cartridges from $3 to $2. That was stupid. Staples makes a BOATLOAD of money (and I mean a BOATLOAD) on recycled ink sales. What they've done is helped people like me shop around, where I've discovered Office Max pays $3 but more importantly, they are about 10% lower on their Canon-brand ink cartridges. Guess what I'm doing with my $1000 per month in ink purchases? You got it - moving them to Office Max.

    What happens if more people do what I do (which they will)? Staples used to be a great store. During the past year I've seen changes that haven't been what I call customer friendly. Then they pull this.

    Moving my business to Office Max? THAT WAS EASY!
