Did you know that Staples offers a 110% price match guarantee?

Yes, it’s true! If you find a currently available lower price on a new and identical item, just show the Staples cashier or an associate at the customer service desk the lower price when you buy the item at Staples and they will match it plus will discount it by 10% of the difference.

And if you purchase an item from Staples and tell them within 14 days that you found that item at a lower price in their stores or online at, they’ll refund the difference! Check out more details HERE.

    I am not very near a Staples store, but am near an Office Depot/Office Max and they “price match” Staples’ store prices (including sales) for the same item(s) – obviously only works for the Elmer’s Glue & Crayola items this time! I’m heading to Office depot to restock our summer art box! Thanks for the post!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      That’s awesome, MJ! You’re so welcome!

  2. Leane

    Seriously!!😱😱Great deals but our schools just got out!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I know! These back to school deals do start up quick! My kiddos have been out of school for almost a month now. SO crazy how summer vacation can vary!

    • Anne

      My kid goes back in 3 weeks. Usually we’re in school for 2 weeks before the sales begin. This is great!

  3. Jessica

    Back to school deals already?
    My kids still have 3 more days of school.

    • Mamamia

      I like that they do these deals so can get it out of the way, esp if u are going away for the summer.

  4. Cari

    My last day is tomorrow, not even done with this school year yet!!

  5. Kenia

    I have been waiting for these deals, my kids go back to school in 2 weeks! Thanks

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome, Kenia!

    • Mamamia

      Curious to know which state this is?

  6. Stacey

    We get out on Thursday!

  7. Rose

    Do u know when will Office depot start?

  8. fran

    Do you have a list of lowest prices ?

    • Cassandra (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there, Fran! Hoping you find this list helpful.

  9. Evan

    I was going to say some schools aren’t out yet while others will be starting in mid July. Wow crazy how the states/districts are sooo different. 😮

  10. Sarah Jay

    Thank you!!! Got a bunch of supplies! I always seem to shop when they’re sold out of the good stuff, so I’m glad they started early! That means they can restock in august and I still have options to choose from!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Good point! You’re welcome, Sarah Jay!

  11. Uche

    How do I get the deal. It’s still full price when I click the link. Am I doing something wrong?

    • cherylhoyer

      Same here

    • Jennifer

      It is in store only…

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! These sale prices are in store only. Hope that helps!

  12. Ashdlop

    Our school has been out for a month already, starting early August. So ready to get this back to school shopping done already!

  13. MakoKaKeni!

    This is our second week on vacation, is this the lowest price these items go?

  14. meg

    Due with #5 sept. 1st and my kids go back mid August. Happy to get a head start because I’m sure I won’t want to be shopping school supplies early August at 8 months pregnant in Texas. Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Aww, Congratulations, Meg! You’re SO welcome!

  15. Jenny

    Is this a stock up price? My daughter starts kindergarten in the fall so it’s my first time!!

  16. Brittany

    Does anyone have an opinion the Staples glue sticks-are they any good? My son needs 20 just to start the year off, so I am looking for good, but inexpensive ones.

    • Meh

      20 sounds a bit excessive? Is the teacher asking that from each child? I’ve been teaching for 22years. Elmer’s purple glue sticks are, hands down, the best.

      • Brittany

        I agree Meh, but I double checked. And that is just to start off. I am starting to wonder if I am sending him to school or arts and crafts camp! Lol! Thank you for your suggestion.

  17. Jenna

    We’ve literally been out for a week, not even that when you count the middle school send-off trip and closing my classroom. I’m not even close to being ready for back to school, we don’t go back till the day after Labor Day (inter tourist state). My daughters face in early June when we were in Office Depot and they had company required back to school ads up with 2 weeks left for us to go was priceless.

  18. ashley

    Walmart has switched to these prices if you don’t have a staples

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh awesome! Thanks for the heads up, Ashley!

  19. PUNKIN

    I know these sales are early, but I have heard that if the Tariffs go into effect that school supplies will go up.
    Just saying…

  20. Tori

    You think that is crazy, Hobby Lobby is already putting out their Christmas stuff. When is too early really too early.

    • fran

      Omg I cant believe it!

    • Joan

      BTW Craft stores always put out Christmas stuff in July so crafters have time to make items to sell at craft fairs in the Fall.

  21. Berrysaves

    My son isn’t even done until Wednesday!

  22. Laura

    Good to see these deals are starting early! When I was in school, our district was year round so we were usually in school a few weeks before Tax Free day or any of the good Back to School sales.

  23. Avi

    My son will be going to Kindergarten this year. We are moving to Irvine next week. Anyone have idea is school supply list is same for all schools of all states. If anyone know for Irvine, CA it will be great help

    • Tyra

      Check out the school district website for the area you will be moving to. The school supply list should be posted. If not glue, glue sticks, scissors, crayons, facial tissue, paper towels, pencils, and hand sanitizers are all good things to stock up on.

      • Avi

        Thank you Tyra for the information. I will check the school website.
