backpacks office max

We’re entering our third week of the school supply challenge! (More info here) There’s still plenty of time to join the project.

There are more bargains at Staples this week, but the big deal is at Office Max on backpacks – You can buy any backpack/messenger bag this week, and receive all but $.01 of the purchase price back in the form of MaxPerks rewards (limit 2). Backpacks range in price from $11.99 to $139.99

MaxPerks is Office Max’s loyalty program. You would receive the rebate to your Office Max account in September and have 90 days to spend it. If you know you’ll use that reward for other things you need at Office Max, then this would be a *great* high-value bargain to snag – backpacks are always something highly needed, and hard to get on our $10 budgets. But don’t spend the money on a backpack if the MaxPerks rewards you’ll get back aren’t useful to you!
