Does Walmart have back to school deals this week?

My husband chose that advertisement to use under his painting job this weekend and I think I see the 30 cent school supplies advertised. Walmart.com will not let me pull up an ad for my area. Anyone have any ideas on this? If they are on sale, I'll head out there today - just don't want to make an unnecessary trip.

Thanks!!

I was in a superwalmart yesterday and I did ask but they said the stuff wasn't out on the floor yet. It was in palm springs california a retirement community so that may of had something to do with it.

I saw a one page color ad in my PARADE issue in my Sunday paper yesterday. It is 70 page spiral notebooks for .25 each, 4 ounce Elmers glue bottle for .30 each, and 24 count Crayola crayons for .30 each. Nothing else is advertised.

That is about all they had on sale at my Walmart in Ohio. I read somewhere that the deals wouldn't be as good this year on school supplies. I am not sure where I read that or what the reasoning was.
I know these prices are higher than last year but I am wondering if it is just because they are just getting the stuff out or if it is because prices in general will be higher this year.

No, no,no, those red signs with the word STOP on them are optional if they have a white border.

I dunno about that, but I will say that I don't think that is the lowest they will go.. Last year they started at these prices and then went down. I plan to get some at these prices, but am holding out for much cheaper...

Walgreens is a good ad to watch too, they sometimes go cheaper than Walmart in July and August!

My Cvs did have some good deals for Free pencils, pencil sharpeners and tape yesterday. They also had some good deals on highlighters. The manager told me that they would be featuring different supplies each week.

Thanks, my children always need those for their school supply lists. I also am in need for some at home. There is no way that I am going to pay full price for those things. I will check walgreens next week.

Thanks!

It's the crayons and notebooks that I need so I'll probably spring for those now rather than risk waiting for a lower price (I have a $10 gift card anyway). Now - I really need glue sticks! We go through those things like water around here. I got a TON last year on the Walmart deal thinking they'd last for years - yeah, NOT!

I went this morning & here's what I found:

24 pack crayola crayons - $0.30 - out of stock
4 oz. elmer glue or 2-pack of elmer glue sticks - $0.30
poly folders with prongs in assorted colors - $0.97
ream of copy paper - $2.50
4-pack expo marker (wish I would have waited for Walgreens!) - $3.50
Pencil Boxes - $0.62 or $1.00
24-pack Papermate #2 pencils - $1.00
1 subject, 70-page spiral notebook, college or wide - $0.25
10-pack Crayola Markers - $1.00

My walmart already has the special school supply aisle set up, though it's only about half full. It's still great going now & getting the selection!

For the "fiskars" scissors, I actually found those last month at the Dollar Tree, so keep you eyes open.

Have fun

It looks like I'll be going to Walgreens for those erase markers. Even if they aren't on the list, the teachers needs those badly.

I think Walmart's prices will go down a bit.

I had to laugh at myself because here I am a Walmart last night scooping up bargains and using my coupons on other stuff but I just couldn't resist that 3.97 Jonas brothers pencil bag for my daughter. I guess I will on some things to splurge on others.

I can appreciate that. It's only been 3 here too, but we are about to have much less money as DH jumps out of a secure, well-paying job and into his dream career (that we hope will be successful ) so..... I have to shop when glue is 30 cents! LOL
