It is hard to believe, but it’s already time for back to school. In fact, some students have already started the 2017-18 school year! Crazy!
Whether your kids start school this week or after Labor Day, we all have one goal in mind: send them back to school with everything they need – but spend as little as possible.
One way to save money is to shop during your state’s tax free holiday weekend. If you are fortunate enough to reside in a state that offers tax free shopping, it can be a great way to lower your out-of-pocket expenses. Not paying sales tax on all those pencils, notebooks and calculators can help the family budget. Visit www.Staples.com/taxfree for particular tax-free deals in your state!
But, it is more than that. Finding a way to save money when it comes back to school, also means shopping at the right stores.
This back to school shopping season, I’ve partnered with Staples to help ensure you get all the information you need to find the best deals – at the lowest prices!
DON’T SHOP ALL AT ONCE
When it comes to finding the best deals on your supplies, I’ve got one secret tip: don’t shop for everything on the same day.
What that means is look at your child’s school supplies list. Each Sunday, when the new Staples weekly ad is released, look at what is on sale. Then, compare that to the list. Head out and pick up those items – and that’s it. Don’t grab those items that may not yet be on sale.
A weekly Staples run can help you find all the supplies your student needs at the absolute lowest price.
STAPLES HAS THE LOWEST PRICES – GUARANTEED
One thing that I don’t think most people realize is that Staples has a 110% price match guarantee! Not just a guarantee, but they’ll beat the competitor’s price by another 10%!! I know!! That. Is. Awesome.
Sit down and look over the other store ads for your student’s must have items. Compare those prices to what you find at Staples. While you’ll usually find that Staples meets or beats them, if they don’t you’ll still get the best possible price.
It’s a simple way to save yourself the hassle of running from store to store chasing down the deals. Staples gives you all the convenience of one-stop shopping while still getting the lowest prices.
SOME OF MY FAVORITE DEALS
As I stated above, each Sunday, Staples has a new ad with new deals and discounts. Make sure you look through the entire ad to find all of this week’s deals. Here are just some of my favorites from this week:
These are just a few that really jumped out at me. You need to look at the entire ad and all the deals available this week at Staples.
