Staples: School Supply Deals; Free Pens!

Spent: $8.09 ($4.09 after rebate)

The office stores are probably THE best place to go for school supplies and general office supplies. I have access to special contract pricing at OfficeMax and Office Depot, but there's no need for that this time of year! Staples, OfficeMax, and Office Depot all price-match each other (and each other's websites including their own), so there's no need to go from store to store to catch the deals. Just bring in the ads and they will match. For instance, I could have price matched the folders to OfficeMax. Staples had them at $0.25 each while OfficeMax had them for $0.05. (Too bad I missed the Sun-Wed $0.01 sale on those folders at Staples).  I am sure they take the Walmart approach to the word "competitor," meaning if they sell the same product, they are a competitor. So, matching may not be limited to the three major office supply stores.
