  1. FYI: Staples deals are in store only, limit 30. Can’t find the .25 crayons on Office Max website or weekly ad.

    • Roxana Rodriguez says

      Please let me know if this is an in-store only thing. I am planning to go tomorrow if needed.

  2. I’m not seeing .25 cent crayons at Office Depot. Am I missing something?

  3. Victoria says

    Thanks for the heads up. My kiddos start back to school on august 1st. I have been planning my back to school supply shopping. Picked up my kiddos end of summer and fall clothing during the Memorial day sales online when everything was deeply discounted. Hopefully the 4th of July sales will be beneficial to us as well.

    * backpacks are always on clearance at the end of a school year and that saves us a ton of money too.

  4. Debra Weisman says

    Thank you. Great way purchase school donations for children in need.

  5. Is there a trick to getting the price you are showing at Amazon? I check on the glue sticks, the expo markers, and the Ticonderoga pencils and the prices are very different.

  6. Jessica F says

    Bummer, the Ticonderoga pencils are actually $4.49 for the 24 pack today (7/1). $2.69 was a great price so I was hoping to grab a few.

  7. Samantha says

    Any deals on reams of paper? I need at least 8 reams.

    • Hi Samantha! The office supply stores often offer free paper after rebate – I’ll be watching for those deals and we’ll be sure to post!

  8. I need 1.5 inch binders. Anyone know the best store and price? I also remember seeing Ticonderoga pencils at Costco. It may be a better deal. I don’t know

    • Hi Amy! I just checked Costco online and they end up being 10¢ per pencil for Ticonderoga, so pretty close in price! I believe Walmart has 1.5″ binders for $2.50-$4, but I’ll try to check next time we’re there. Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂

  9. Do the prices on Amazon not apply until Sunday?

  10. I snagged some stuff at Office Depot today. Did not see crayons on sale. Be warned, some items have maximums. I returned two notebooks because I went over the max and full price was $2.99 each rather than $0.70! Also, if you have an American Express Blue Cash card, there’s an offer on-line for 10% off at office supply stores. It worked at Office Depot. No code needed, American Express picked it up when my transaction went through.

  11. Dorice Timmons says

    Any deals on backpacks

  12. Alecia Peacock says

    When will the penny deals start?

  13. HI,
    I still cannot see the updated cheat sheet when I click on the link above in the post, also signed up to get the sheet in the email automatically each time it is updated, is there something I am doing wrong.Please assist.

    • Hi Anil! I’m sending you an email right now with the most recent link – we update it on Saturdays and I re-send it out to our email list, so make sure to watch for that too (it’ll go out tomorrow!)
