I’ve posted the Staples back-t0-school deals the past two weeks and failed to tell you an important piece of information. A reader wrote in with the following and I wanted to post it in case some of the rest of you didn’t know:
Please feel free to remind your readers that if they are a teacher and show their faculty I.D. they can get increased limits on all 1-cent and some 25-cent sale items at Staples. For example, the 1-cent folders had a limit of 5, but teachers can get 25. Glue had limit of 2, but teachers can get 25.
Does anyone know if this is also true at other stores?
Also, if you want to keep things simple, don’t forget that you can price-match any of the back-to-school deals at your local stores at Walmart. Just bring in the competitor’s ads and Walmart will price-match any advertised price.
