Back to School deals on school supplies for the week through August 11, 2012.

***Update Aug 9: Get 50% off a Staples Gift card at this link, to buy office supplies and back-to school supplies, valid to redeem in stores only (not online). The promo to Pay $7.50 for a $15 Staples gift card via Saveology is for first-time Saveology customers only, available while supplies last (they sometimes sell out if there’s a cap on the offer.)***

I’m afraid I don’t know of anyone giving away free school supplies, but I’ve done a hunt around on some of the Back to School sales this week and some of these deals are nearly free or completely free with a rebate. 

Some deals may vary by location and they are of course while stocks last, but here are some places to save while stocking up on your child’s classroom needs or comparison shop to see where best to head. Check the weekly ads that I’m linking you to for full details. I’m just picking out a few items, and you may be interested in other school supply or office supply items on offer. You can also check for your own nearest location. Offers all run through August 11, 2012, unless otherwise stated.

$10 Off Coupon: Office Depot to September 25

Comments Off on $10 Off Coupon: Office Depot to September 25

If you need to stock up on supplies for your home office or business, here’s a goodie from Office Depot.

Use this Office Depot coupon for $10 off a $25 purchase – it’s good in stores only and expires September 25, 2010. Please carefully review the restrictions on this coupon, it’s valid on technology, furniture, and other supplies, but (for example) it excludes HP ink and toner, gift cards, postage and shipping services, and purchases from Office Depot outlet and clearance stores.

If in doubt about whether the item you want to buy will count as a qualifying purchase to get the $10 discount, I’d call ahead before traipsing across town!

But if you’re in the market for qualifying technology products or paper, pens, school supplies, or any of that jazz, it looks like the Office Depot coupon nets you a nifty 40% discount!

Use it in stores only and the offer is limited to one coupon per household or business.

There are four Albuquerque Office Depot stores.

–Tania – Thanks to Nadine at Madison on the Cheap for the tip!
