School Supply Deals for July 28-August 3, 2013 (Fred Meyer, BiMart, Toys ‘R Us + more!)

by Angela Davis on July 27, 2013

This week's best school supply deals

Here are the best school supply deals for July 28-August 3, 2013 for the following stores:

  • Fred Meyer
  • BiMart
  • Target
  • Staples
  • Office Max
  • Office Depot
  • Toys ‘R Us
  • Walgreens
  • Walmart

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 you need high-priced, specialty school supplies, I suggest you hit up Fred Meyer and use the 20% off store coupon to save on stuff that doesn’t go on sale. Make sure you clip the $.50/1 Georgia-Pacific Multipurpose Paper coupon in the 7/28 RP insert — great deal at Fred Meyer and certainly at other stores in the future.

I wish you had a share button for Facebook. I find things you post that I’d love to share with my daughter on FB, but have to copy/paste the info instead. :)

I think the confusion about Bi-Mart may be that their sales change on Wednesday, rather than over the weekend, so both may be true part of the week.

On the BIMART sales…
Crayola Crayons 4/$1 – The limit is 8 (not 6)

The free Sharpie markers cpn seems to be only in the home-delivered Off Max ad, not in the store copies. Limit 1 per cpn, 2 total, no other purchase necessary.

Do you know with regards to limits – is that per visit, or is it per week/per deal? Office Max has mechanical pencils on sale – limit 3, so I thought I would check – thanks so much :-)

New target mobile coupon for $1/4 up& up brand school supplies makes for some freebies I think like crayons

The Office Depot Brand School Copy Paper is a 200 sheet package, not a full 500 sheet ream of paper.

Don’t miss out on Rite Aid this week also (click on stores above & you will see it)-there are free and very low priced school items also. go early in the week, as free tend to go fast!!

Howard July 28, 2013 at 2:00 pm

They have numerous items for 33 cents, some of which retail at $3 or more. First 3 are free (with $.99 reward and RA card).

charolyn July 28, 2013 at 8:02 pm

Yes! when I got in there today, I realized .33 is a really great price too !!
