  1. Jennifer S says

    How funny! Where I am (NY), we have a totally different Staples flyer this week. Up till now the deals you’ve posted have always been the same for me. No composition notebooks on sale here (boohoo). Our $.10 deals are index cards, #2 pencils, and highlighters. And we have pentel pens free after rebate rather than zebra pencils. The other sale items are different as well. Frankly, your ad looks better this week!

  2. I did not see Composition books in Chicago either. Instead was pink cap erasers for $.10. The free item is Zebra ballpoint pens, the $.25 item is a 2 pack of sharpies and the $.50 items are white out, slider pencil case, paper clips and the photo paper. Also for a penny are the 2 pocket folders.
