80% Savings at Staples Back to School Sale!

by ThePrudentPatron on July 8, 2012


I started my back to school shopping today with a trip to Staples. One of the perks of Staples is most of their best deals are free after rebate, not free after rewards. I would much rather get my money back in the form of a check, than rewards that I have to spend at the store. Plus all their rebates can be done online, and it only takes about one minute to submit the rebates!

I purchased everything pictured above for about $8 after coupons and rebates! Here’s what I purchased:

1 – Scotch Super Glue – $4.29
$1.30 instant savings
get $2.99 Easy Rebate (limit 1)
FREE after Easy Rebate

2 – Staples® 8.5 x 11 multipurpose paper – $6.99
get $6.74 Easy Rebate (limit 2)
$0.25 each after Easy Rebate

2 – Rose Art Crayons (24pk) – $0.01
w/ $5 minimum purchase (limit 2)

2 – Staples School Glue – $0.01
w/ $5 minimum purchase (limit 2)

2 – BIC® Round Stic ballpoint pens (8ct black) – $0.01
w/ $5 minimum purchase (limit 2)

2 – Staples® pink block erasers (3pk) – $0.50

1- Crayola® washable markers, crayons and watercolors – $2.00

2 – Bounty Basic Paper Towels (8pk) – $5.00
-$0.25/1 Bounty Paper Towels or Napkins, exp. 7/31/12 (P&G 07/01/12)
$4.75 each after coupon

I also used the $5 off a purchase of $30 or more coupon found in ad and online

Total before sales and coupons $43.04
My out of pocket cost was $25.03.
I expect to receive $16.74-$13.65* in rebates, so my final price is as low as $8.29 after rebates and coupons! That’s an 80% savings.

See all of this week’s Staples Deals or check out all of the Back to School Sales.

*Staples will sometimes subtract  partial value of the rebate because I’ve used a $5 off coupon, but in my experience this is hit or miss. Regardless, it is worth using the coupon to pay less out of pocket.

thank you so much, I followed your list, except, instead of the $2 washable markers, I got a 25pk of legal envelopes for $1, and I only got one paper towel, and I got 1 charmin 16 double roll for 5.99. I was able to use the $5/30 and I will get the 3 easy rebates!! I am so happy with this…thanks again :))
