  1. Brianna

    FYI, The Walmart BIC deal shows using a coupon that expired on 8/5.

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      Thanks for the heads up Brianna! I just fixed the post. 🙂

  2. Nicole

    Does the Target coupon work on dollar spot items too that are for back to school? I bought a calendar and white board for my classroom and was wondering if those would count.

  3. Momof2

    My Staples wouldn’t take the coupon because they said the item was on sale.

    • Erin

      That is so frustrating!

    • eryka

      They said the same thing to me so I still bought them without coupons

    • Janet

      Same here. Staples would not accept any of the Bic coupons

    • Lovely

      How weird, my Office Depot is the one that told me from online chat with CS and from phone call with CS, that they do NOT accept manufacturer coupons when the item is on sale or on any markdown. My Staples did accept my Elmer’s coupon but they had to get a Manager to push it through and I waited like 10 minutes for the whole transaction to go through. It was unbearable.

  4. Amy

    hi i have a question. i cant seem to find the $5/$10 school giftcard offer in cartwheel. thank you! im ordering online and cant seem to find a promo code or anything

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Hi there! It appears that offer is available in store only.

      • dealhousewife

        It says a $5 wys $30. but I don’t see it on CW. (i’ve never seen a gift offer on CW before?)

        • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

          The coupon offers such as this one, that you can grab in the Cartwheel app, are available when you head to the “checkout tab”. You will find a red banner at the bottom of the app listed “coupons”. Click on that and you can scroll through the offers. Hope this helps!

          • dealhousewife

            oh, thanks!! I never realized that! I have 3 offers, but none for school supplies lol. Maybe because I don’t have that one in my ad either. but luckily I was just able to get it via the text code. 🙂

            • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

              Oh good! YW! 😉

  5. Imran

    does staples stills take MFR coupons

  6. Carrie

    I was just in Staples yesterday and bought the Staples copy paper 3 pack (750 sheets total). I paid $8.99 but the rebate was only for $7.99 (not $8.74) as posted above. I can’t seem to find the deal you’re referring to above where you get it for 25 cents after rebate. I can’t find it in their current ad, either. Thanks.

  7. Kim B

    Just went to Staples, the Bic pens are black only for .$50 the rest are regular price. It’s in very very fine print. Just helping 😀😀

    • Oshea

      Beware. The sale pens are black medium print, not fine. The boxes are identical. I found this out yesterday. The store was wiped out of the sale pens & pencils.

  8. Colleen

    We bought those BIC pencils with two tone colors for school thinking they were fun, and the teacher sent them back home. Child said she said they aren’t allowed.

    • Sunny

      I got them last year real cheap. It looked cool but they werent that great from my experience.

  9. Camille Brown

    What’s with the $1 off any Elmer’s product (4ct/6oz. or larger) coupon? Doesn’t seem like much of a bargain as much as that would cost.
