Back To School – Week 6


Things are winding down with the sales. There will probably be some sales next week, as our friends up North don’t go back until after Labor Day, but that’s about it.

Also, a reminder that there’s a contest for goody bags filled with school supplies at the end of the post.

The sales listed below are for SUNDAY AUGUST 12 – SATURDAY AUGUST 18. Happy Shopping :-)

For anything that says “with card”, you need a CVS Extra Care Card. It’s free and you get rewards while shopping with it. You can get one in the store, at the register. You’ll get “money” back to spend at CVS. You can also get coupons by scanning your card at the red kiosk in the store.

One strategy I use with this is to do two transactions. Do one with anything that will get you ExtraBucks back. Then use those on the next transaction. That way, you don’t forget about them.

The deals are so-so this week

Just a reminder about their teacher program this year (and I’m sighing loudly as I type this). You can purchase 2 for $0.01 and 23 at regular price. You will get the purchase price of the 23 regularly priced items back in the form of Staples Rewards, that are only good to buy things at Staples. I would STRONGLY encourage you to e-mail Staples and voice your concerns about the program this year.

On a side note, all the limits that have been 4 all “season” are now 2. Ugh! A reminder that Walmart, Target and Office Depot all price match for anything that’s not Staples brand name.
