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.
But remember to price compare. For example:
