We are excited to expand our efforts in providing value and convenience through our partnership with Staples Advantage. Staples Advantage, the business-to-business division of Staples, Inc., is our official, office solution provider and we have recently aimed to restructure the approach to the relationship to better communicate and provide substantial cost savings to all our members.
Staples has been recognized for “outstanding customer service” by J.D. Powers and Associates for eight years in a row. They are committed to “making it easy” for us to buy a wide range of office products, including supplies, technology, furniture, facilities, and business services. We will further reflect this with additional valuable communication from the Staples, through their Account Management and communication teams.
Staples Advantage Program Features:
- Award-winning customer service
- Fast, easy and consolidated online ordering
- Discounted pricing on the entire full-line catalog, including office furniture
- Free next-day shipping on orders
- Easy, hassle-free returns
- Customer appreciation days for employees at retail stores
As we move forward with this enhanced approach on providing client value, Staples Advantage will communicate valuable information about the industry and additional great savings opportunities. We encourage you to welcome a Staples representative into your bank so they can show you how to cut your office expenses. For more information contact Alycia Bousquet at Staples at (508) 253-5523.

Education Management and Member Services
Association Members and Associate Members can take advantage of a program offered by Massachusetts based Staples, the Staples Business Advantage. With the help of Expense Management Group (EMG), a Memphis-based consulting firm specializing in helping financial institutions identify cost-savings opportunities, MBA has developed a partnership with Staples that will provide a comprehensive office products program to our membership at extremely attractive price levels.
The MBA/Staples Business Advantage program includes a complete selection of office supplies, paper products, inks and toners, furniture, computer supplies, copy services, as well as janitorial and banking supplies. As with many of the MBA programs, the Association has used our Membership’s collective purchasing power to create an aggressively priced program that would not be attainable by most of the Members on their own, using their individual buying power. Our analysis shows that some Members can expect savings of up to 40%.
Massachusetts based Staples is the world’s largest office products company and is ready to meet all of our membership’s product and service requirements. Staples will provide all program participants with dedicated account management, access to their internet-based online ordering system (Stapleslink.com), and will provide free, next day delivery to all of your locations. Registration is quick and simple. To start ordering today, just visit StaplesLink. Or, if you prefer, contact Staples to discuss your current office products requirements or have them evaluate your current office products costs to let you know how much you can expect to save under the MBA/Staples Business Advantage program.
