Retailers offer their best back-to-school shopping deals from the second week of July through the last week of August. However, given that there’s a lot of variance with regard to reopening dates between different schools and states, you may still be able to score amazing back-to-school shopping deals. Read on to find ways you can save when you’re shopping for back-to-school supplies.
Shop on Sunday and Monday
Weekly sales typically start on Sunday mornings. So, if you want to get good deals, we suggest shopping on Sundays or Mondays. Of course sales dates may vary from store to store, so make sure to ask a store representative when you can expect weekly sales on back-to-school inventory.
Buy calculators from your local dollar store
Family Dollar® and Dollar Tree® locations are open so you can shop for as much as you want. If you’re uncomfortable shopping at the store, Dollar Tree® offers online shopping and delivery. Try shopping for expensive back-to-school supplies like calculators, planners, or clipboards at dollar stores to save money. You might not find a graphing calculator at Dollar Tree®, but you’ll surely find a basic calculator that’ll save you at least $10-$15.
Look for coupons everywhere
Keep an eye out for manufacturer and store coupons from office supply brands. You can redeem the manufacturer coupons on sale items for the biggest savings.
-Magazine coupons from Parenting since they are a fantastic source of coupons for back-to-school.
-Sunday newspaper coupons from sources like SmartSource, RedPlum, and Procter & Gamble.
-In-store coupons are regularly found on the shelves or inside products. Walgreens® has lots of school supply coupons in the weekly ad in the front of the store.
-Printable coupons for school supplies become available during the summer, so warm up your printer!
Get pencils and pens for free with coupons at the dollar store
Use manufacturer coupons on items at the dollar store to get a freebie. For example, if you see a Bic coupon for a $1/1 Bic stationery product, you could use the coupon at your local dollar store on items marked $1. By doing so, you may get Bic-brand items like pens and pencils for free.
