I order water and have it delivered to my NYC office. Besides Staples, have any of you found better deals on water delivery?http://bestsmileys.com/drinking/13.gif (broken link)

I was in charge of that for my old company, although it was in Florida. I found that to be the single most competative thing we used. All of the coffe services had water, as well as the water companies having coffe service.

They came to the office & looked at what we needed and submitted bids for coffe pots & coffe, water & coolers, cups, bathroom tissue, paper towels, hot chocolate, trash bags, etc. We picked the lowest bid. We were on a regular schedule and they came & filled us up. We never had to call or order.

Crystal Spring, Water Boy, Hav-A-Cup, Zephyrhills, are the ones I can think of right off of the top of my head that bid for us.

Default Evey

I'm looking more for personal use not for the whole office. It's one man for himself over here. Thanks for your response!

Default By the way . . .

I went ahead and ordered water from Staples yesterday and I got it today!
I got two cases of 24 1/2 liter bottles for like $23.00! I was getting tired of buying bottles at the store for $3.00 every day!

Wow, that sounds really expensive. Is there a Sam's Club near where you are? Maybe that is good for your area. It sure does sound better than $3 a pop!

I go to BJs to buy stuff for my home and some things for the office but I can't travel on the train to NY with packs of water. Too heavy! I had the water delievered from staples cause that is cheaper then going to stores every day to buy individual bottles. They overcharge for almost everything here in NYC.

Gottcha, lugging a case of water on the train would be kind of bulky.

Clean, fresh, bottled water being delivered, in bulk, to where I am without me having to do all the lifting? Priceless.
