We’ve got the list of the best prices in town for your school shopping needs. Use the "Print this page" tool to take the list with you while you shop! This is a general list from most popular stores most likely in your area, so you may want to do a little ad price comparison with local stores including your grocers you may not see. Note the stores around you within a 50 mile radius from where you live and use our guide to find the cheapest price. Remember you can price match easily at Wal-mart and Office Depot at any register. Our office depot will allow you to price match any ad (online or print) as long as it's a box store. They will not price match Wholesale clubs or sites such as Amazon. You can also price match at Target at the service desk. Staples price matches with limits, as well. Just tell your cashier to match the price from the other store. Take your flyers just in case.
Keep in mind, this is the first week of back to school shopping, so prices should drop even more over the next two weeks, but we have no idea until a few days before upcoming sales, what these prices might be. Therefore, this list will greatly expand as more supplies go on sale and we trend whether the price will remain the same at stores such as Wal-mart.
Some store will not worry about limits. Walmart is typically one of these stores (but depending on where you shop, they may).
Staples, OfficeMax and Office Depot have limited stock so they will
probably enforce limits. Target in our area often limits “like” items.
Check your ads for 1¢ deals but understand stores will have limited
stock! Get in early for the best deals. The following deals should
carry through the week.
