School Supply Deals (Week of 8/5): Free Folders, Pens + Lots of Deals Under $1.00

Update: we’ve added Target, Walmart, and Toys R Us’s deals to this list.  There’s free Scotch tape at Target!  Also, Krispy Kreme just announced that you can donate school supplies and get free doughnuts!

The first week of August has some great deals on school supplies – but I wouldn’t wait much longer to get what you need, it seems like the sales usually die out in mid-August.

This week, you can get free folders at Office Max, free ink pens at Walgreens, and lots of cheap deals at Staples. Staples is by far my favorite store for their back-to-school sales – I love their Easy Rebates, and I’ll definitely be getting more reams of paper for $1.00 this week.  They’re doing the $1.00-after-rebate paper deal every week, it seems, but even though it’s limit two, it’s a different rebate offer every week so you can do it two times per sale cycle.

You can find printable coupons for school supplies here.

These deals are valid August 5-11, 2012. [rss-cut]

  1. Heads up so you don’t do the same thing I did! The paper that’s $1.00 after rebate this week at Staples is Hammermill. Previous weeks, it’s been the Staples paper. I didn’t realize it until after I checked out and the rebate receipt didn’t print. They were great about returning it for me, but took me way longer than I’d planned.

  2. I may have overlooked it on the list, but Walmart in Green Valley-Tower Road has 70 page 1 subject notebooks for 17 cents.
