5 Ways to Save on School Supplies
1. Think Outside the Box:
Be sure to keep a close eye on stores like Staples, Office Depot and Office Max for killer school supply deals. This is the time of year for rock bottom prices! These stores offer rewards programs (think CVS & Walgreens) too which make the deals even better. Start researching store policies now and get ready to deal.
2. Use Rewards:
Just like I stated above, many stores offer various rewards programs. You’ll see many items ‘free after RR’s or ECB’s’ (Walgreens Register Rewards & CVS Easy Care Bucks) but again, you’ll also see deals for items that are free after Staples Rewards too.
Yes, there are coupons for school supplies! For store coupons, be sure to keep an eye out on Target.com or in the CVS circular or Walgreens coupon booklet at the front of the store. Manufacturers will also be putting coupons out on their websites and on facebook as well so stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated!
4. Stock Up:
August and September are the best times of the year to load up on school and office supplies. This means, you need to stock up now for the rest of the year. If your kids are like mine, most of their supplies had to be replaced about midway through the school year so be sure to buy extras or you’ll be paying full price later on down the road.
Download the new rockin’ app Favado and you’ll be able to access back to school coupon matchups and deals right on your phone. This means, you can stand in the store and compare prices at other stores!
Lastly, don’t forget the office. If you have a small business or home office, now is THE time to buy office supplies. You’ll find the lowest prices of the entire year! So, if your employees keep walking off with your pens, now is the time to replenish the stock!
