With a new school year comes new supplies, accessories, and technologies for your child, which means more money for you to spend. Check out these deals so that you can be a smart back to school shopper.

School supplies

School supplies always need to be replenished at the beginning of the school year. Refill your child’s stock with Office Max’s school supply kit (online offer). It includes all the major supplies such as pens and pencils, tape, post-its, highlighters, and even tissues. A $50 value for only $24.99! If what you’re looking for is not included in this kit, find a CVS near you. Their back to school sale offers many “Buy 1 Get 1 Free” or “Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off” deals.

Backpacks

Now that your child has all new supplies, they will need a backpack to carry it all. Garnett Hill’s back to school sale will lighten your child’s load without being heavy on your wallet – and it includes a free matching lunchbox! This deal on  Garnett Hill’s colorful backpacks lasts through September 6th. For a more mature  look, browse through Lands’ End’s selection. All backpacks and lunchboxes are now 20% off!

Computers

In addition to school supplies and book bags, students may also need to buy a new laptop before they go off to college. From now until September 10th, Microsoft is offering a free Xbox 360 console for any student who purchases a Windows 7-based PC sold for $699 or more. If video games are not for you, however, Apple’s back to school deal offers a $100 gift card to spend on the Mac App store with the purchase of a Mac before September 20th. Both deals require identification as a college student.
