This morning I viewed the upcoming Staples ad and saw some great deals. Filler paper is on sale for a penny (limit 2) when you spend an additional $5, so hopefully the teacher limit is 25, which would mean 25 packs of filler paper for $.25. I am guessing that my husband does not need all of this for his classroom, but it is such a good deal, that I think I am going to pick it up and we can always donate it.
The best part of the ad this week is the free after rebate sticky notes. These are on my husband's school list and I never anticipated that we would be able to get these free, so I am really excited. This is a 12 pack of small sticky notes. The sticky notes are $3, with a $3 mail in rebate. Next item is Scotch pop-up tape. Normally, I wouldn't purchase this, but what a great way to get some nearly free tape ($5.29 out of pocket minus $5.29 rebate). Plus, I can use this during Christmas time for wrapping presents. Finally, a four pack of highlighters are also free after rebate.
Staples rebates are really easy and can be done online after creating an account, so I love taking advantage of rebate deals at Staples. Plus, you can track the rebates online, so you know when your check should be arriving.
As a side note, I keep track of all of our rebates by placing the duplicate receipts in an envelope. When we receive the check, I toss the corresponding receipt.
Total for this run will be .25 + tax after all of the rebates. What a great week for school supplies.
