    claytonsaver - looks like Walmart will have the better deal on filler paper this week starting today, 8/17. The 150 sheet filler paper is .75 - a very good price these days.

    Here is the 20% STaples coupon valid through 8/17 on their website:


    Teecee - I spoke with my local Staples and they said that they are not doing the discount card on school supplies this year.

    And I just added another freebie to the Staples list for the week: Paper mate profile ball point pens, 4 pack, free after rebare.

  • teecee Aug 16, 2014

    Is Staples offering the "sudent cards" this yea r- where you buy the card and use it to get discounts on school supplies at Staples thru a certain date ?
