      What I really need is 2 inch binders, which can be really expensive. If anyone sees them anywhere at a good price, I would appreciate knowing!

      • Ad says that the avery binders are B3G1F @ staples :)

        • kcreviews

          Thanks, but I think those are only 1 inch binders–too small.

          • sonyapell

            They had a display set up with binders at my Staples Friday. They had different sizes included in the sale, but I'm not sure what the sale was, or if it's still going this week.

          • dealKATcher

            I saw some at Sam's (a 4-Pack) I remember thinking it was a good price for all 4. However, I'm not sure on the size of the binders.

      • danielle

        If you buy some of the rebate items like 1 photo paper and 1 copy paper and use the office depot 10/25 you can buy about $10 worth of binders for free after the rebate.

        • Jenn

          I have a question with that, please. I used the $10 off $25 coupon last week. It says it's a one-time coupon. Does that mean I can't use it this week?

      • Jenn

        I think you might get a good deal on 2 inch binders at Walmart. I noticed 3-inch binders at Walgreens for $7.

    • sonyapell

      I'm going to do this today, plus headed to K-Mart for a few of their deals. KM has 10 count packs of pencils, 2 pack Elmers glue sticks, 24 pack Crayola crayons, and Westcott shatterproof rulers for .25 each!

      • aczek16

        Plus, in my ad this week, they had a 50% off ANY notebook or journal.
        I think this year i will only buy the .99 or less deals for pens, highlighters, etc. hopefully i can save more this year than last year! (i wasnt doing “coupoon saving” at that time)

        • Nancycrom

          There's free Pilot pens at Walgreens this week. And last week CVS started doing their free school supply deals they do every year. They had free pens and scissors. I don't think they had anything this week, but they probably will have more in the weeks to come.

          • Jenn

            Can you elaborate on the Pilot pens? I found some G2(?) pens for 19 cents each. They were $3 for two pens, but on sale for $1.19, then there was a $1 off coupon in their booklet.
            I got the CVS scissors and pens already; can't wait to see what else they offer!

            • Nancycrom

              On this website, look under Walgreens for this week, there's a link to an ip q.
              Pilot G2 Pens 2 pk $1.19
              -$1 off Pilot G2 Pens Walgreens July Coupon Booklet
              -$1 off Pilot Pens printable (use both, makes it FREE)
              (tip: always use mfr. coupons first!)ek:

      I got great deals at Staples today! 2 packs of copy paper, 2 bottles of glue, 1 slider pencil box and they price matched the notebook paper to 25 cents so my total after rebate was $3.85. I was so excited!!

      • nancycrom

        Which store ad did you use for the 25 cent noteook paper?

        • Jamie

          I've *heard* that all Staples stores are supposed to be offering the filler paper for 25 cents, but it might be limited to 2. Most people need more than that!

        • Andrea

          Office Depot has it for 25 cents

    • scooterlady

      My Staples said they would accept comp. coupon but then I wasn't able to use it because they said it could not be used with any other discount or promotion, but still a good deal even without the coupon.

      • 3monkeysmom

        I always thought that meant you can't use it with another coupon, like a $ off $$$ or say, a 10% off coupon.
        What's the point in having the coupon if you can't use it for sale items???

    • AGmom

      Anyone else go to Staples and they said you have to spend $5 before getting the penny deals? That's what happen at my Staples last week and I was just wondering if this was a corporate wide thing.

      • Lmeaker

        Yes, I got the same thing. It must be something new this year, because I have gone in and gotten the penny items for several years now. Hopefully, when all of that stuff is still sitting on the floor in a couple of weeks they will change their mind!

      • Andrea

        It says in the ad that it's 1 cent with a minimum purchase of $5. But, do you know if the Hammermill copy paper would count for the minimum purchase, since it's $5.99 BEFORE the rebate?

        • Lharrill

          Yes, the hammermill paper would count, because you are actually paying 5.99 for the paper. You only get the rebate after you send in the form (or do it online).

    • Gmomofive

      At my store (Charlotte) if you are a teacher, you can buy 25 of the penny glues, not just 2!!! She said that goes for most of the “penny” type sales… Was also told the “Teacher Appreciation” sale should be sometime in the next 2 weeks and they will have awesome deals for teachers… spread the word!!

    • Lharrill

      I got a great unadvertised deal at Staples this week. They had the staples brand “better binder” – relly durable with a flexible spine – on the clearance table for $3. When they rang up, they rang up as part of the buy2 get 1 free deal, so I got 3 for $6 instead of just two.
