Back to school means a lot of things; the dwindling down of summer, the birth of autumn, and of course school is back in session. While that news that classes are beginning again may sound like a jackhammer hitting a steel fault to many, the good news is that several major office supply stores and online retailers are making the transition incredibly smooth through their monster back to school savings.
If you haven’t purchased your back to school supplies yet, don’t worry you’re in luck, as Time recently argued that procrastinating on back to school shopping is actually the best way to get ready for the new year.
An ideal place to start for killer education-related savings is OfficeMax.com. The mega chain office supply store is running a unique promotion where 1,000-school supplies are available for $5 or less. The mind-blowing deal covers the full gamut of school supplies and includes everything from crayons, staplers, gel pens, composition notebooks, pencils and permanent markers. Some particular standout items in this promotion include a 12-pack of Sharpie markers for $5, and an assorted 24-pack of Crayola Colored Pencils for $4.49.
OfficeMax’s main competitor Staples has cleverly organized their back to school deals into several categories; K-12, College, Teachers, List Less and School Bundles. The K-12 savings are particularly impressive with massive deals on items like a Toshiba laptop, previously $379.99 and now available for $229. The same category features a substantial $15 savings on a classic all-encompassing Jansport backpack.
The deals in the college category are equally worthwhile, with a sleek jet-black office chair marked down by $60. Of course teachers need school items as much as the students, and luckily Staples has sizable deals on everyday necessities like face-tissue and Lysol Disinfecting Wipes. The List Less section has arguably the best savings on the site with many of the items being more than half off. If you’re looking to buy items in bulk, the School Bundles Category offers 13 and 15-item bundles of supplies.
Fortunately, back to school sales extend far beyond work and study supplies, as several major clothing stores also offering staggering fall savings. JC Penny is promoting a 20-50% sale on Jansport backpacks, as well as 30-50% off select styles of Arizona Jeans. From now until Sept. 1, the JC Penny website and stores are offering an extra 20% off (when you use a JC Penny credit card) and 15% off (for all other forms of payment) on home items when you use the code BUYNOW.
Every year, Old Navy seems to outdo itself with epic fall discounts. The site is highlighting polo shirts for as low as $6 and uniform khakis for $12. The discount site, Coupons.com also has a back to school section of far-reaching savings on several major brands like Tom’s, Sephora, HP and Best Buy. Speaking of the tech giant, Best Buy is promoting reduced-priced laptops and batteries this back to school season. The Bestbuy.com website also has an innovative feature that seamlessly lets you create a back to school wish list.
