Haven’t done your back to school shopping? The September issue of ShopSmart magazine shares 10 sites to shop for school (and office) supply deals if you’re looking to skip the crowded stores this year. The sites passed the mag’s test for privacy, contact-info disclosure, and service. I share five of them below.
- 6pm.com – This Zappos.com outlet is best for shopping for backpacks as they are heavily discounted. You’ll find name brands like Roxy, Oakley, Patagonia, The North Face, JanSport, and more. Shipping is free — gotta love that! Returns can be made within 30 days from purchase.
- DiscountSchoolSupply.com – Deals are guaranteed! The site will match prices and refund you 10 percent of the difference. You’ll find everything from markers to index cards to binders. Plus, the site also has a large selection of arts and crafts supplies. Shipping starts at $5 with free shipping starting at $75. I found this site is great for teachers who buy their own supplies. Returns are unlimited.
- Reliable.com – The more you buy, the more you save with this site. You may want to go in with several parents to fully take advantage of the deals. They also have a price-match policy. There’s a $6.99 handling fee for orders less than $45 and $1.48 for orders more than $45. There is a restocking fee for some items and you’ll get store credit after 30 days.
- SeeJaneWork.com – You’ll find cute and stylish school supplies. This site is best for those in high school and college. The site carries different styles including Vintage, Modern, Cottage, and Eclectic. Shipping starts at $7 and returns can be made within 30 days from delivery.
- SchoolPak.com – Schools can send official lists so all you have to do is order supplies with a few clicks. You can also buy premade packages with commonly requested items. Shipping is based on UPS ground prices and you have 90 days from purchase to make a return.
Prefer shopping in-store for school supplies? I round-up the best school supply deals of the week each Tuesday. Don’t forget to check back often to find the freebies and deals of the week.
