Crayola crayons: With school around the corner, be on the lookout for rock-bottom prices for school and stationery supplies. For the next several weeks you can expect to save up to 90 percent on common items, so stock up for the entire year. These also are great to donate to local charities as they organize efforts to provide supplies for clients’ children. Start by getting a free box of Crayola crayons at Walgreens. On sale for $1, you will get a $1 Register Reward at checkout. Your net cost is free.
Mead products: Rite Aid has a 50-percent-off sale on all Mead products, which you can combine with a mail-in Single Check rebate that gives you $5 back when you spend $20 on Mead products or $2 back when you spend $10. Start by getting Mead Composition books at Rite Aid, on sale three for $1.98 (67 cents each when you buy three). You’ll get a $1 +UP Reward when you buy three, so your net cost will be three for 98 cents, or 33 cents each. And your $1.98 register price will apply to the mail-in rebate spending total.
Papermate pens: You can get an eight-count package of Papermate Grip pens on sale for $1.99 at CVS. You will get a $1.99 Extra Bucks reward at the register so your net cost will be free. (Limit one.)
Scunci elastics: Regularly $2.99, Scunci No Damage Hair Elastics (18 count) are on sale at Walgreens for $1.50 each when you buy two. Although you’ll pay $3 at the register for both items, you also will get a Register Reward for $3 when you buy two, so your net cost for two items will be free. Now that’s a no-brainer — either pay $2.99 for one or get two free.
