Disclaimer: I attended the Staples Back to School Event and was gifted a gift card to make purchases. All opinions indicated below are my own.
The Back to School season is upon us! I know, how can that be? Summer just started! But you know how the saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun. Getting ready for the new school year can be a little nuts, but Staples makes it Easy!! I was invited to a Staples Back to School event earlier this month, and had the opportunity to see first-hand all the great items they have this season.
I had a blast at the event with fellow bloggers, and even won the in-store scavenger hunt! They have all the supplies and gadgets you and the kids will need, every kind of notebook, binder, pencil, pen, folder, marker and paper you can imagine.
One of my favorites is the line of neon-colored binders and pencil bags, and the boys loved the entire Lego Chima line, which includes pencil boxes, folders and notebooks, and writing utensils featuring the Chima characters. Also new this season, they offer uniforms from French Toast through their website.
Staples has great ways to help you save money and help our communities:
The Staples Back to School Savings Pass saves you an additional 15% off most school and office supplies. The Savings Pass can be used once per day, and is good from now until September 21st.
Staples has partnered with actor Jake T. Austin and Boys & Girls Clubs for the Staples for Students program, to raise money for students across the country whose families can’t afford to purchase school supplies. Customers can help by donating $1 from June 30th until September 28th at the register.
The new Reward A+ Classroom program allows Staples Rewards members to earn extra rewards for the teacher of their choice, including 2% back on everything (with just a couple of exceptions) as well as 5% back on every Copy & Print purchase.
And of course, their amazing, on-going weekly deals can’t be beat!
I am not kidding when I say I went to Staples at least five times during the last few weeks to get the boys the things they’d need for the new school year. I took advantage of those weekly deals and stocked up on the usual things: composition notebooks, pencils, filler paper, sharpeners, folders, crayons, markers. School started this past Monday, and now that the teachers provided their wish lists, we’ll be heading back to Staples over the weekend to wrap up our back to school shopping.
