Office Depot: Back To School FREE & Dollar Deals

by Tara Kuczykowski on July 10, 2010 · 16 comments

Office Depot also has some great deals on supplies this week. As with the Staples deals, I recommend shopping early for the best selection.

Pair these deals with this new $10/$25 Office Depot Purchase coupon through 7/15 to increase your savings!

:: FREE After Rebate

  • Mr. Sketch Markers (12 pk.), $7.99 (Limit 1)
  • Swingline Light Touch Stapler, $13.99 (Limit 1)

:: $1 After Rebate or Instant Savings

  • Office Depot Paper Reams, $6.29 (Limit 2)
  • Office Depot Sheet Protectors, $7.59 (Limit 3)
  • Pentel Quicker Clicker Mechanical Pencils, $7.49 (Limit 3)
  • Wilson Jones 1" Round Ring Binders, $3.99 (Limit 3)

I'm thinking the sheet protectors and binders would be an awesome investment for those of you that use the file-by-insert method!

  • AVG Anti-Virus and Identity Protection, $15
  • CA PC Tune Up Plus 2.0, $30

FYI: The Office Depot coupon you linked to is coming up as $10 off $25 for me, not $5 off $25...

Do they do a single check rebate?


3 Jessica July 10, 2010 at 10:27 pm

Coupon printed 10 off 25 for me too. How does the rebate work with OD?


4 Kelly July 10, 2010 at 11:58 pm

I can't get coupon to load.


5 Amanda Parham July 11, 2010 at 12:25 am

Boo... I can't get the coupon either...

Oops, thanks for letting me know! It's a PDF coupon, so if it doesn't load for you, make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat installed.

I'm honestly not that familiar with Office Depot rebates because we don't have a store near us. Here's the link to their rebate center, so hopefully there's some information in there:

If your Staples takes the Office Depot coupon this can be a $8.78 Money Maker!

Does anyone know if Staples will accept competitor's coupons? Or how to find out? I've searched their website and found nothing

There would be a rebate for each item. The $10 of $25 includes most things in the store. Make sure you tell the cashier which local school you would like to for them to make a donation to. Office Depot will donate 5% of your qualifing ourchase to the K-12 school of your choice.

Just got back from Office Depot. I didn't buy all the rebates items, and I bought a few things that were not on rebate -- I I paid $23 and will get back about $35.

What a blast! My husband went with me and even he was excited! Nothing like buying school supplies and getting paid to take them from the store! Now that's MY kind of shopping (and his OOP purchases (2 transactions) $39.71......Rebates coming back...$48.24!!! That's an $8.53 profit! I am going to go back to pick up the stapler and some more of the binders...great deal!! When I do that it will cost a total of $0.99! Woo hoo!!

Yes, my Staples will accept competitor's coupons. I've done it many times before and in fact, I used the $10 off $25 coupon there today. The only catch is that they don't have a good way to enter it, so they have to call the manager over who will adjust the price of your item(s). In my case he took $4.98 off each of two reams of paper that were $4.99 because near everything else in my cart was only $1 each and he would have had to adjust 10 prices (so yes it was 4 cents shy of $10 off). I think they had to charge me the penny for the paper otherwise I wouldn't qualify for "buying" it and getting the Easy Rebate back.

What is "file-by-insert" method?


14 Tara Kuczykowski July 12, 2010 at 9:28 am

Kris, I'll be writing more about this in my Back To Basics series, but basically it's filing your whole, uncut coupon inserts by date and then just clipping the coupons when you need them. It's great for people that don't have time to cut and sort all of those coupons every week.

The only drawback is you may not have coupons with you when you find clearance deals at the store, so there's a bit of a tradeoff there. But I think if you filed them nicely with the sheet protecters in binders and kept them in a tote bag, you could throw them in the car still.
