Staples Starting Back-to-School Deals ALREADY!

by Ann-Marie on July 2, 2014

Staples back to school

Welp, here we go. It’s the beginning of July and we’re starting to see back-to-school deals hit the stores. It’s not that crazy, considering many schools across the country have taken on some form of a balanced calendar. My sister starts teaching later this month in her area, although my children won’t start school until mid-August.

Regardless, here’s what Staples has implemented to kick off back-to-school season:

  • Staples will now have a 110% price match policy. What’s this mean? If you find an item in their Back-to-School section, say this Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 and it’s $329.99 at Staples and same price at Best Buy, $319 at Walmart and $319 on Amazon; you’ll get it for the lowest matched price plus another 10% discount. In this case Staples would match Amazon’s price, less the 10% means you’d pay $287.10.
  • Also, Staples has 30 items already drastically discounted through the entire back-to-school season. Spiral notebooks for 17¢ each for example – these typically will go down to a 1¢ weekly deal (with min $5 purchase) but if you don’t want to wait for the penny deal, grab them for 17¢ at any time.

If you missed my money-saving tips this morning on Indianapolis’ B105.7, here’s the rundown!

Today I talked about ways to save even more at Goodwill!

  • 50% Off Color – Look for colored tags that can save you as much as 50% on select items every day. This week through Sunday 6/29 at central Indiana Goodwill stores, the 50% off color is Yellow – items with yellow tags or barbs are 50% off.
  • 99¢ Sundays – And if a yellow tag item is around on Sunday, you’ll get it for just 99¢! Each week, that week’s colored tag items are just 99¢ on Sundays. Let’s say original price was $4, it has a yellow tag this week so you can get it for $2, or on Sunday, $.99!
  • 1st Saturday 50% Off – Once a month the whole store goes 50% off, on the first Saturday of each month (the next one will be July 5th),  all used items are 50% off.
  • Facebook Friday Coupons – You may have seen me post this on Thursdays, but Goodwill offers Facebook Friday coupons for fans to print on Thursdays, and use it all day Friday for 20% off purchases of $20 or more. Check back here tomorrow for a link to print this coupon!
  • Goodwill Outlet Stores – There are three Goodwill Outlet stores around Indy that sell clothing, housewares, books and more by the POUND. So like, dishes are $0.29/lb. Shoes in pairs are $1.49/lb. And again, the first Saturday of the month even at the Goodwill Outlet stores, they have a Blowout sale for 50% off or more – dishes are just 9¢/lb!!

Find out all the details on how to save at Goodwill here.

And I’d love to hear from you – what amazing deals have you scored at Goodwill? And have you ever attempted the Outlet store on the first Saturday? Do share!
