I guess the word isn't out at my staples. I did the copy paper thing this AM and got 2 packs of the penny pencils. I went back this evening with my son and we each got 2 more packs of the pencils. He (age 7) was super impressed that he was able to buy 16 pencils for 2 cents. I stockpiled from last year during the Staples, Office Depot, etc. sales. I didn't need to use as many pencils etc. as I have in my stockpile so I plan on donating a lot to the school/classroom this year.

Word isn't out at my Stapes either. They had lots of pencils left. The lady in front of us checking out over heard how much we paid for our pencils. She was waiting in shock out side the door waiting to verify that she had heard right. LOL Yep 2 cents (16 pencils) That was all we bought so the check out boy said that will be 2 pennies please.

Do you think they will have something else for 1 cent next week like they have done in the past?

I'm thinking yes...we'll have to wait and see. I've searched all over to see if someone had an advanced copy of next Sunday's ad, but not yet. Sometimes Staples will give you a sneak peak at the ad a few days early on their site.

I also did the Staples Rewards promo with the backpack purchase. Basically it's "like" free. We'll see how that works out. I'm supposed to get a store credit in my Staples Rewards for the purchase price of the backpack.

Way to Go Paula! Hopefully the "like free" money back for the backpack happens before the good deals are over so you can maximize you dollar power.

I'm still deciding if I need anything this week or not.

I do believe the Staples rewards are quarterly so that most likely won't come to me until October (I think). But my dh is a big computer guy and I'm sure we'll find a way to use all these Staples rewards I'm earning. So far it doesn't look like they are subtracting amounts from my account for the free after rebate or penny after rebate items. We shall see...

You bet me to it, LOL.

Yep, 25 cent deals on the sneak peak tab.

Also, there is a coupon on the front of the ad for $5 off any $30 purchase or more. That would come into play if you needed to purchase something other than the 25 cent deals...
