Staples is going to have free-after-rebate backpacks next week, and it is finally confirmed in the ad preview here (click on Upcoming Weekly Ad for the details).

I’ll post the full list of Staples deals soon, but right now I just wanted to give you the head’s up in case you were planning to buy a backpack elsewhere in the next two days.

Thanks, Chi-Town Cheapskate!

Pretty much a dud ad, but there are two deals worth noting:

Compaq Laptop WAS $399.98 (I looked around online, other places are selling it for $379)

Details: 2.2GHz AMD V120 processor, 2GBof RAM, 250GB hard drive and ATI Radeon HD 4250 graphics, the Compaq CQ62Z also features WiFi, DVD burner and a 6-cell battery and optional Bluetooth. HP will retails it for around $379.99 with preloaded Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

$9.98 is pretty good for a DVD-5 50 pack. I looked for comparable prices online; most places like Radio Shack have these for $29.99

These are next weeks deals from Staples Ad Preview.  View this weeks deals on the Cuckoo Deals Map!

First of all, my 100% free shirt from The Company Store arrived in the mail!

Second, my mom mailed me a $10/10 JcPenny coupon, and I got the cute skirts and t-shirt at the bottom of the picture for $2.12!  My daughter’s 3rd birthday is tomorrow, what a cheap gift! If you have that coupon, stop by the little kids department, tons of shirts and shorts are only $3.99 each.

Third, I went to Staples and got (2) 20-packs of FREE batteries, and 2 reams of paper for $1 each.  You can sign up for the rewards card in-store.  See how the deal works here, but in short I paid $35.18 OOP, and I am getting $31.18 back in rebates.   If you live in a state without Sales Tax, this is an even better deal for you – I paid $2.12 in sales tax+ $1 for each 500 sheet ream of paper.   My husband hates high rebates because he worries about getting the money back, I have heard great things about Staples program though so I’m trying it out for the first time.

Fourth, I went to Walmart and did the following deals, and not one single coupon beeped! It’s a miracle at Walmart when that happens!

McCormick Seasonings $1.00
use $1.00/1 (RP 4/25)
Final Price= free

Carefree liners 22 ct $1.00
– $1/1 (SS 4/25)
Final Price= free

Mac & Cheese Cups $.78
– $1/2 (SS 4/25)
Final Price= $.28 each

White Cloud TP (4 rolls) $2.00
– $1.25/1 (print up to 3 times per computer)
Final Price= $.74

Heinz 57 sauce $3.77 -A hard core couponer would have waited for a sale, but we are all out and I love Heinz! And wouldn’t it be a waste of ink if a sale never came around and I didn’t get my Heinz 😉
– $2.00 printable-no longer available
Final Price=$1.77

Capri Sun Sunrise $1.97 (they were sold out, but I saw that this is their price)
-$1/1 (SS 4/25)
Final Price= $.97 each  (this isn’t in my price points list, maybe it’s a great deal, but not quite stock up, what do you think???)

KC Masterpiece Barbeque sauce – $1.46
$1/1 printable here (must register)
Final Price= $.46

Milk $1.66 each

Digornio Pizza with breadsticks and marina sauce $6.50
– $3/1 printable (found on their Facebook page if this link stops working)
Final Price=$3.50 (Not a great or stock up price. But after running around to the bank, and 3 stores, I knew I wasn’t going to feel up for cooking dinner tonight. )

Otter Pops are on rollback for $3.46, reg $3.99 or something.  I need these for my daughter’s party otherwise I wouldn’t have paid that much.
