What about Back to School Discounts?
School supplies are a headache for parents. For the first few weeks, it’s like a game of trial and error. You may load your children up with the best supplies around but then find out you’ll never need them, or they go unused sitting in your kid’s room taking up even more room. It’s better to be safe than sorry; you don’t want to send your kids without any supplies altogether, so we’ve found some good deals abound on the internet.
In many states there are Tax-Free weeks where a prospective student could save on tax, temporarily that is. The thing is, you still may not get the best deals on products so even if you are saving 6%-7% on supplies you still may not get the best deal out there.
Amazon – Prime
For online shoppers, it’s the apparent go-to place when it comes to buying stuff. But did you know that Amazon has a special section for Back to School supplies? Find deal ideas like:
- Particular Grade Level
- Backpacks at a hefty discount
- Girls Themed Supplies
- Boys Themed Supplies
- or “Off to College” and score sweet College Supplies
