      I specifically went to Staples today because of the sale paper they had for last week and I was very dissatisfied. They were advertising a lot of school supplies and when we got there they were practically out of everything and it was very hard trying to find what was on sale. Big waste of my time.

      • Tennille

        Well… it could be that it is the end of the week… I was at our Staples and today was Teacher Appreciation day… got free breakfast!

      • Monica

        I agree, I went Sunday evening, the day the sale started, and they were already out most of the “free after rebate” items. I was going for the .01 paper, and there was plenty of that left:)

        Did you happen to ask an employee about the empty shelves~We are talking about the Back to School rush. Many stores are short staffed

    • kjmiller

      My Staples generally has all the great deals, but yes, you have to really hunt for them! Sometimes they are in bins in different aisles (than they should be), or ends, or otherwise tucked away.. Last time I got an employee to lead me to each item I needed. (He wasn't all that happy about it, but hey..).

    • miatd

      hey jenny the paper that you have listed for .01 cent is 1.00 when i looked it up on the website……

      • Kt97

        70 count notebook paper should be $.01.

    • Jess

      I notice that the .01 items require a $5 minimum purchase. Can the $5 come from the items that are on sale for $1?

      • aczek16

        yes ma'me!

      I stock up on back to school supplies to use in the Samaratins Purse Christmas shoe box program. These deals make great shoe box items. Now is the time to stock up tshirts, socks, and all things school. Also, we do the Salvation Army angel tree program. Preschoolers love crayons, markers, paper, etc. It makes them feel like “big kids”. School supplies make great gifts at Christmas. Plan, prepare, give.

      Great trip this week! I spent about $50 and will get $35 back in rebates. I also used the 20% off coupon in the ad this week, along with my teacher privilege of 20 items at the sale price, and price matched watercolor paints with Target and Sharpie fine point markers with KMart. I am lovin' Staples lately.

    • Sabrina Stover

      I have lost count of the number of backpacks I have purchased over the past few years! With two in school and one a special needs child we have definitely used quite a few. Thanks for all you do!

      I work at Staples and it is very hard to keep things stocked with the BTS specials. A few pointers though for Staples shoppers. If you go to the store on Saturday night around 7pm you can actually catch some of the sales before Sunday morning. If sales tags are already out on items, they have to honor that price. Also, most of the sales items will be in bins in the center aisle as well as on endcaps and where they are normally in the store. Now, the spiral notebooks that are on sale for a penny this week, you can only get at a penny with a $5 mininum purchase before tax. This sale ends on Wednesday. Teachers can get 20 of these for a penny each with either your teachers rewards card or teacher id. The Hammer Mill paper is a penny after mail in or online rebate.

      Hopefully this helps some people out! If you're in the Greer, SC area, come visit me!
