Remember last August, when I paid just over $5 for all of my kids’ school supplies? The key to paying as little as possible for school supplies is to START EARLY.
The office supply stores are making it easy for us by kicking off their sales in June!
This week, for example, you can pick up free Pentel Wow! Retractable Ballpoint Pens (18pk) after 100% Staples Rewards.
Here’s how it works: You pay $8.29 out of pocket, but get back $8.29 in Staples Rewards. (Valid in-store only. Limit 1 per customer.)
Staples Rewards are like Extra Care Bucks, in that they are cash that you can use only at Staples. Unlike ECBs, though, you don’t get Rewards immediately. Instead, they are mailed to you within 30 days of the end of the calendar quarter.
While you’re picking up your free-after-Rewards pens, you might also want to check out the Staples Dollar Deals (limit 2 while supplies last):

- Single Poly Zip Envelopes – $1
- Expanding Envelope – $1
