      Pretty good list…  We are so excited to be going back!!!  Thanks so much for taking some of the stress out of back to school shopping and just letting it be fun (easy) and affordable, Jenny!!  Print list, shop.  It takes me less time to shop now then it used to take me to wade through the circular!  :)

      • Good to hear! Thanks for the encouragement!

    • Lindsey_m_lowrey

      I have never shopped at staples before.  Do the rebates come mailed to  you in a check or do the rebates have to be spent at Staples?

      • Kristy

        It depends. If it is a easy rebate it comes back to you either in check form or paypal. If it is a Staples Rewards it needs to be spent at Staples.

    • Kristy

      Any idea what size photo paper that is? I need the 5 X 7 size.  Thanks Jenny!

      • MsrySC

        This one is full sheet, but they regularly have the 5X7 close to free as well. I got some last month.

        • Kristy

          Thank you!

    • Heilalex7

      is the paper limit by week? I already bought 2 two weeks ago so can I get 2 more this week? THaNK YOU!!

      • Megganwilcauskas

         Yes –

        I do them every week during the summer and have enough paper to last the year!

      If I use staples reward money on an item that has an easy rebate on it, will I still get the full rebate?  I found out the hard way that if  you use reward money on an item that has 100% back in rewards that you don’t get the rewards, so I thought I would ask first.  Thanks!

      • Rach3lbu11man

        Yes!  That is how I always do it and that’s what Jenny says too.  You buy rewards with cash or Easy Rebates and buy easy rebates with rewards….Never buy rewards with rewards..because as you found out …they don’t work.  

    • heather

      Don’t forget about the $5/$30 coupon.  Combine this with the easy rebate deals, and you can get some free or almost free items this week!

    • Does anyone know how much you have to spend if you want to purchase the cap erasers and the index cards….$5 or $10?

      • Nancy

      Staples will give you $2 off a new binder if you recycle an old binder. I asked if there was a limit–no. I also asked if this discount could apply to a binder on sale–yes.

      • Melissa McMurray

        This is a great deal! The cashier told me they were just doing this until about the first week of August, so go recycle your old binders now!

    • pennywiseinasheville

      I’ve never shopped Staples before, what does “Easy Rebate, in store only” mean?

      • Nancy

        In store only means you have to go to the store to buy it as opposed to buying online.  For the Easy Rebates, you submit the information from your store receipt online and wait 4-6 weeks to get either a rebate check in the mail or a deposit into your paypal account.  What makes these rebates so easy is that you don’t have to cut out UPC and mail a whole laundry list of things in to get the rebate.

    • Wilto

      Here is a money maker scenario.

      Zebra #2 Mechanical Pencils = $4
      Pentel Pens = $4 
      (2) Staples Multi Purpose paper – $13.98
      HP Photo Paper = 9.99

      Total = $31.97
      Use $5 off 30 to make it $26.97

      Get back $8 in rewards and $20.97 in easy rebates on the paper = $28.97 coming back to you!

      • Guest

        With the new rewards system, you get 5% taken off automatically. You don’t get rewards anymore like you would at CVS. 


      • Dd

        The $8 is also in easy rebate not rewards

    • Julie

      Where is the $5 off $30 coupon?

    • Julie

      Where is the $5 off $30 coupon?

    • Bugdootle

      Just toilet everyone know, staples has throughout the stores right now coupon grabbers for that new Martha Stewart collection, I got some labels for free the other day using one of these coupons, it was 2 dollars off and the labels were on sale for 1.90$!

      • mrn1

        toilet…gotta love auto correct!

      Staples changed their teacher policy, and we are trying to get them to change it back to help teachers buy supplies for their classroom. Please consider signing the petition!

    • Dawn Laney

      Will walmart price match the $0.01 items at staples even though you have to buy $5 at staples to get them?

    • Jhawk963

      grrrrr….they were already out of the mechanical pencils!  The clerk didn’t think they had many to start with.

    • LouisvilleShopper

      Is it worth purchasing the Back to School Pass just to get back to school items? I know that purchasing the sale items on this page would make it not worth it, but for a backpack maybe????

    • Sportsmom

      I just picked up the penny deals in Orange Park, Florida however the Roseart markers did NOT ring up for $1 and the index cards did NOT ring up for .1!  I had to go to customer service and have the manager over ride the prices in order to get the deals!  Not sure how many people checked out and didn’t watch prices yesterday because the store manager said she worked both Sunday and today and nobody else complained or asked for a price adjustment!  Watch the prices!!!

      • Lovesavingmoney

        I’m in SC and had the same problem yesterday with the penny items ringing up at reg. price.  I thought maybe it was something I calculated wrong but I guess it’s their registers or something.
