Yay! Here’s a great Back to School deal for you! Through July 20th, Toys R Us is offering up a FREE Lunch Kit with any backpack purchase of $12.99 or more in-store and online. Check out all of the available backpacks here. Even sweeter, many of these backpacks and lunch kits qualify for FREE 2-day shipping through ShopRunner (remember, you can cancel ShopRunner at anytime during the 30 day trial with no penalty or charges to your credit card!).

If you’re a fan of the adorable Skip Hop Zoo line, check out this deal scenario…

Buy 1 Skip Hop Zoo Pack Little Kids Backpack $19.99
Buy 1 Skip Hop Zoo Lunchie $12.99 (free after promo)
Get FREE 2-Day Shipping w/ ShopRunner
Final Cost $19.99 for both items!

You can also snag Buy 1 Get 1 50% off on all Thermos Funtainers. Note that none of these containers appear to qualify for FREE Shipping through ShopRunner; however, you can snag Free Standard Shipping at on any purchase of $79 or more. Or, head to your local Toys R Us store instead to find this same sale. With Thermos Funtainers starting in price at $12.99, you can snag 2 for as low as $19.49 after the sale – just $9.74 each!

Check out the email that Hip2Save reader, Brooke, sent over…

I am sure you have seen this going on at ToysRUs, but I’m very excited about my purchases this morning.  I just got 6 Thermos stainless steel character cups at B1G1 50% off.  Also, when you buy a backpack totaling more than $12.99 you get a free lunch kit.  I bought a My Little Pony backpack for my daughter and got a Princess Celestia lunch box (valued at $9.99) for free.  I have been trying to make the switch from plastic cups over to stainless steel and it is so expensive.  I am very excited they are on sale this week!!!  My order qualified for free shipping (over $79).

Come back and let us know what great deals you find!

(Thanks, Brooke!)

    I hope they offer what they did last year. If you trade in your old backpack and lunch box you got additional 20% off!

  • loretta says:

    Just ordered the backpack I have been holding off on. Love the bonus lunch sack!

  • Jackie says:

    of course the transformers backpack doesnt qualify for shoprunner. might have to goto the store & see if they have it

    • K Crew says:

      That’s the one my son wants too. What’s the deal only 1 Transformers pack!? It is in stock in my store, but not the lunch kit.

  • LO says:

    Ugh stinks they don’t offer shop runner on the thermos…it makes them full price when applying shipping :/ not a great deal unless you spend $75

    • Erin says:

      Oh, and you may want to check Goodwill for stainless Thermoses. I saw a like new Hello Kitty one for $1.25. . . . Which my husband thought was too expensive. ;)

    • Erin says:

      I have yet to use Shoprunner on something I need, though I think I used it on one or two fun “extras” at I don’t see how they will be able to stay in business. I was *shocked* that the Skip Hop backpack/lunch bag combo was eligible, but I got better a better deal on them elsewhere anyway.

    • Caitlin says:

      I really want the skip hop zoo dog backpack which is not eligible for shop runner or the free lunch box :(

  • Carrie says:

    Not sure if it’s worth it since what I picked doesn’t qualify for free shipping through shoprunner. The shipping is $8.99, so basically I get $1 off lunch tote…but still buy one half of Thermos worth it then??

    • Ketsy says:

      Depends on how many you are buying! I bought the Skip Hop items on Amazon both for $23 and they range up to like $29 depending on the style you pick. You can consider that also. It was a great deal for me since I also had a gift card.

  • Liz says:

    I am adding my Skip Owls backpack and lunch bag and the lunch bag is not coming out free. Help?!?! Can someone please try it? I think they might have removed this brand from the deal.

  • Amy says:

    Great price on these thermos cups. A favorite in our house!

  • Celia Riley Thorn says:

    yay i’m so excited. i actually drove to TRU this morning to get the pictured backpack & lunch box (skip hop monkey) but my store didn’t carry any skip hop lunch boxes in the store. the manager even looked on their store site. :( i found it on my phone on their global website but he told me since it was $12.99 and over the $9.99 price limit it wouldn’t qualify.

    needless to say, i’m so happy i found this post! just ordered it and signed my hubby up for a free year membership with ShopRunner using our AMEX!!!

  • angelahoang12 says:

    I am lucky my kids really wanted Skylanders and their backpacks are on clearance for $9.98 with free lunch bag. Went to purchase in store, found what we wanted, didn’t come up for a free lunch bag, argued my way with online pricing’s help… got what we wanted. Yay!

  • Priya says:

    Thank you so much Collin! I went into Toys R Us today to look at both these deals and they didn’t have a lot of thermos/food containers left. They also didn’t carry the Skip Hop backpacks and lunch bags. Although I couldn’t get the thermos deal online, I’m glad I was able to get the backpack/lunch bag. Thanks again! God bless!

  • sylersmomma says:

    If you bought the funtainers check inside. I got a few coupons one being a free pack of Kings Hawaiian Original Hawaiian Sweet Mini Sub Rolls up to $4.00. I got one in each funtainer so 2 free packs of rolls. The coupon doesn’t expire till 2014 too. I feel that this makes the deal even sweeter. I almost couldn’t justify paying $16.99 for the thermos.
