We have 4 great tips for saving on school supplies at Walmart!

1. Get cashback easily on your school supply purchases.

If you’re not already an Ibotta user, consider downloading their free mobile app to earn cash back on your in-store and online purchases. For a limited time, you can snag up to $20 in Welcome Bonuses when you create your new account here and start redeeming offers. It’s a simple way of getting the most out of every penny spent.

2. Take advantage of free same-day pickup at Walmart or sign up for Walmart+.

Shipping can be expensive, but when you opt for free same-day store pickup not only do you avoid any added shipping charges, but you also save yourself the time and hassle of having to go in-store to shop.

Do your shopping online, wait for a confirmation email, and head to the store with the email and your ID. That was simple! Plus you may even be able to pick these items up at your store’s curbside pickup area, meaning you never even have to get out of the car – awesome!

Don’t want to leave the house at all? Invest in a Walmart+ membership! Walmart+ members score free shipping with no minimum on most orders, and you can give it a try with a free 15-day trial.

3. Watch for 25¢- 50¢ school supply items.

You can find many Walmart school supplies priced at 25¢ – 50¢ making your savings even greater. We’ve already spotted a few, but keep your eyes peeled for even more that we should start to see soon, both in-store or online. You can also bookmark this post for updates on these hot deals and more.

4. Always shop the clearance section.

Most Walmart stores will have a selection of clearance items in the back that may include school and office supplies that are perfect for back to school. Starting at the clearance section will ensure you get the biggest bang for your buck as items get added to this area throughout the week. Plus if you can wait, you may find that the clearance section fills up even more right after school starts, so you can grab additional items with even more savings.

    This is my first time having to purchase school supplies. Am I right to assume that Walmart usually has the best sales compared to Target, Staples? I know that every store has a better price in at least a couple things, but I was wondering if Walmart is best overall based on years past? TIA!

    • Rebeccaperson

      Honestly, I would recommend waiting as long as you can until you get the specific list of supplies from your child’s teacher. For basics like glue and crayons, I have found most stores don’t have enough $ difference to justify shopping different stores for each item.

    Are teachers going to be able to post their Amazon lists again this year? 🥺🙏🏼

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      We’ve had teachers adding their wishlist to this post all year!! https://hip2save.com/tips/clear-the-list/

      Let me talk to the team about maybe including these in the school supply posts! Thanks, ksteele!

      Great idea

    Is this when school supplies are the cheapest? My oldest starts school this year and if prices typically get lower in the next week or two I don’t want to buy now but also don’t want to miss the deal because the prices are still good. I’m Just a mama trying to use her resources to the best of her ability.

      Hi! I’ve been teaching elementary for the past 23 years. I’d say go ahead and wait. The sales will last for quite a while. All school supplies are “donations,” so you don’t HAVE to buy anything, but I bet the teacher will appreciate you for sending some in. This year, I went ahead and bought all of the school supplies my class will need. I’ll be including a link to a “wishlist” of extra supplies and books if parents want to contribute. Hope it works out and alleviates some stress for all! Happy Back to School shopping 😉 and happy first year of school.

        As a teacher and mom of 3 I understand that it can feel like back to school time is a costly time. However there are a lot of great strategies to save money. My number one rule is check to see what is happening in your community. Many areas have back to school giveaways with backpacks, supplies, and even shoes and socks. If money is tight contact the school and they can also hook you up with charitable organizations that can help get needed supplies. My next tip is only get what is on the list. Teachers understand the demographics of their community and only put what is necessary. If they say a 2 pocket folder save your money on the $2 designer folder and get your child’s favorite color for 25 cents or under. Lastly I feel like life is all about perspective where I live daycare is an average of $100 a week per child. Think of all of the money you will be saving when your child attends kindergarten!

      • Emily

        I’m curious about the school supplies being “donations”? If I don’t buy the supplies needed for my kids, or sign up for a backpack giveaway, my kids won’t have what they need. It is not the teacher’s job to provide for my kids.

        • Becky

          The school has to provide supplies for your child to get an education. The lists teachers give out are a gimmick to see which suckers buy the stuff because the school holds back on teachers. Basically it’s a rip off! There’s no reason a parent should have to buy a few boxes of crayons or boxes of tissues. The school should provide all necessities for the kids. What is happening is schools are being underfunded and/or money is being misused(which is more likely) so teachers are having to resort to asking parents to fill in the gap. The school cannot penalize you or your child for not buying these items. Don’t fall for it!

          • Ginger Veith

            I guess I look at it as 50$-100$ for my kid to get an education? Sure, what else do they need. Now that my kid is in kindergarten I’m not having to spend 1200 per month on daycare costs so 100$ total for the year is cheap😉

          • Emily

            With school supplies often $1 or less per item, it’s ridiculous to say a parent shouldn’t provide the paper, pencils, crayons, etc that THEIR child needs. I don’t think parents should be expected to send large amounts to provide for those parents that can’t (or more likely won’t) buy what their kid needs. Any reasonable parent is willing to send what their child needs.

    • Denice

      In some states the district/teacher cannot require parents to purchase school supplies for their children In these states the supplies are often referred to as donations. The way I understand it it has to do with how the state law is written around a free education.

    I went yesterday and did my Ibotta school shopping. They had everything, but the grape jelly. The best part was I donated what we wouldn’t use and I still got the almost $18 on my ibotta account. Tax free weekend is this weekend for my state, but it usually is super crowded here and I didn’t wanna risk it due to Covoid and just because I don’t like people that much anyways to be around that many LOL.

    • Liza (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh yay! I’m so glad you were able to pick up the rebates, and to donate a few items, too!

  5. Ashley Harnish

    any ideas as to how to get a good deal on the zippered binders?
