Cheap school supplies this week at Staples

I'll be back at Staples this week to pick up a few more Composition books for 10 cents each.  Last week, I was in Waldorf, MD and was hoping to get the 1 cent folders.  Au contraire!  Their ad is one week ahead of the one for Fredericksburg, VA, where I normally shop.  That meant that the folders I wanted were long off sale at that store.  So, I grabbed the 10 cent composition books then along with the Free after Easy Rebate Zebra Cadoozles. 

Staples deals for me for .50 and under this week (after rebate on some items)

Free after rebate
  • Zebra Cadoozles 0.7 mm mechanical pencils ($5 with $5 Easy rebate) - one per household
  • Pilot FriXion yellow highlighters - 3 pack - one per customer.  Free after 100% back in Staples Rewards.  Cost at register is $4.99.
Always check your local ad as it may differ from mine.   The difference between Staples Rewards and Easy Rebate is that you can print Staples Rewards (think ink - that's how your rewards are now sent to you.) They notify you of your rewards status and when you can print your rewards coupons out to use at the store.  Easy Rebates come by mail as rebate checks.  Either way, if it's free after Staples Rewards or Easy Rebate, you still get your money back.  Easy Rewards need to be spent at the store, however.  Rebate checks do not.
