There is an awesome deal this week on Roseart Art Supplies at Best Buy.  I know most of us would never think to go there for school supplies…

Grab Rose Art Glue Sticks, Glue, and Crayons for 10¢ each!

This is on page 41 of their weekly flier, which means you can also price match it at Walmart or Target.  If you price match them at Walmart this is really a fun money maker after coupons!

At Walmart:

Buy:
(3) RoseArt Supplies, 10¢ ea.
Use:
-$1/3 RoseArt products, RP 7/29
Total: you make 70¢ profit!

Most Walmart stores will say you don’t need the ad to price match.  I would disagree and say that you are much better off with something to prove the price.  If you don’t have the ad from the paper, most stores will gladly accept a page of the ad printed from the internet.

Check out all the top School Supply Deals this week.

    • thanks Jenny making a stop at Walmart today to price match some of the school supplies in the Target, Walgreens add will add this to my list and probably donate some of it, had a hard time getting the deals at Target yesterday, had to dig in the regular office section for the MEAD folders, didn’t have any sign and out of about everything in the school section, thanks again

      I wish my Walmart wasn’t such a hassle to deal with. They have deemed “one per purchase” as in one per person per entire purchase. The customer service guy acted as if I couldn’t speak English and started making hand gestures, one which included him twirling his finger in a horizontal circle to mean the entire store. Thank you for pointing this out! I may go to Target instead.

        I agree!  It seems that it is up to each cashiers’s discretion to how they should price match or take coupons.  I get a different answer about their policies everytime I go in there, I’ve even asked different managers/cashiers on the same visit and each had a different answer as to what their actual policies are.  I finally found one cashier that never gives me a problem, so I found out what days she works and only shop to price match/coupon on those days.

           I contacted corporate and they said each store manager is responsible to gather the local ads.  I went to 2 different Walmart and the cashier called the manager who said it was true and that she should work with me and the prices.  The cashiers are clueless and the managers are lazy so they will not tell you the truth they will only tell you what they want.  You can also print the policy and take with you.

      Interestingly, it’s strange how many school supplies are much cheaper (dirt cheaper) than during the tax free weekend! For example, during tax free weekend, I bought 6 notebooks from Staples during tax free weekend for $0.50 each. Yesterday, I got 5 notebooks free at Office Max (after $5 purchase) and 3 notebooks for $0.01 each at Office Depot. Tax free weekend cheated me! :(

      I contacted the Corporate office and was told you do not need the ad it’s the responsibility of each store to gather the local ads.  I went twice and the cashier told me no.  When they called the manager they said I was correct and that they should go ahead and give it to me for what I have.  It is just way too time consuming to bring 4-5 ads in the store and flip through them holding up the line.  I prefer to make my list with the price match it is quicker.

    • Yeah!  I can stock up on glue to keep me in homemade mod podge all year!
      I avoid WalMart as much as possible.  I’d really rather drive across town than go there.  Why they build 50 registers when they only employee 3 cashiers is beyond me.  I worked there back when Sam was alive and it was a much different beast.

      I was at Walmart on Sunday to price-match Staples ad on the composition notebooks for 10 cents each. I got 20 with no problems.   Then I went back today to get 20 more ( I have 4 kids! )  and a different cashier and she refused to let me have 20, stating I could only have 3 as that was the limit in Staples ad.  The neighboring cashier agreed and when I said I got some on another day, they said I was lucky because I shouldn’t have.  If my boy wasn’t with me getting restless and there wasn’t a line behind me, I swear I would have made her do separate transactions buying 3 at a time.   I bought my 3 notebooks and left, put my stuff in the car, then came back, got 20 and went to a different cashier on the other side of the store– no problems.

      The coupon says no cash back or overage will be given for any unused portion in the fine print. Getting overage would be going against their terms of use. You are better off getting 10 boxes per coupon because it says $1 off 3 or more products in the fine print.
