School Supply Deals for July 21-27, 2013

by Angela Davis on July 21, 2013

This week's best school supply deals

Here are the best school supply deals for July 21-27, 2013 for the following stores: Fred Meyer, BiMart, Target, Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, Toys ‘R Us, and Walgreens. I have not listed every school supply deal listed in each ad — I’ve only listed the best ones (basically cheaper than Target or Walmart’s best prices and the prices I would pay myself).

This week’s tip: If your child has his/her heart set on a particular style or character backpack, I suggest you purchase it now as supplies will be limited in August.

Ohhh..I need to scout out the BiMart ad. Thanks for the reminder!

Howard July 22, 2013 at 5:04 pm

Thanks, but I am “compleatly” out of Compleats cpns, and I have a good supply of the dinners.

There is a 1.50/3 on coupons.com.

At Staples, the Bic dry erase markers are limit 2.

Thanks for all your work on this list – it really helps us!!

Just FYI : on the single pencils: I think you meant to say .01 for the price. I sure wouldn’t pay $1 for each pencil!! :-)

Good eye, you must be from Pencil-vania.

At Toys R Us on Sunnyside, there was a sale of 4 packs of 24 crayons on sale for 1$. That was on Saturday.

If you go to fred meyers-look for tear pad coupons-I found a few on the
school supply display boxes & last year there were some for pens- forget if it was bic, or paper mate.

charolyn July 21, 2013 at 6:51 pm

The ones I got were good on certain avery products & another one on papermate, expo, sharpie, liquid paper & uni-ball (certain upc #’s listed on back-but there are many of them).

Reply

Florence July 22, 2013 at 9:39 am

I found them too and used one on a single Sharpie priced at $1.29 and it worked.

Howard July 21, 2013 at 6:30 pm

The Staples photo paper is actually free after cpn and rebate, not $1. The cpn link is for $2 off, not $1.

JHollyhock (aka Jennifer H.) July 21, 2013 at 6:03 pm

I wonder if the $10 pass can apply towards your $30 purchase for $5 off. Does anyone know?

Reply

Howard July 21, 2013 at 6:30 pm

The $5 on $30 cpn fine print states it cannot be used on the Back to School Savings Pass. However, once you buy the pass, you MIGHT POSSIBLY be able to combine use of the pass with the $5 cpn. There is language on the cpn which states that only one cpn discount can be applied to an item. I think the $10 pass could possibly be construed as a cpn of sorts, so it might not work.

Love all the back to school in one place. Makes it easy to compare the stores without having to flip back and forth.
