I was not compensated for this post. I attended a back to school event where I received a Staples bag of goodies and Monster headphones.
Getting ready for back to school? I’m here to let you know that for the 2013 Back to School season #StaplesHasit !
A few weeks ago, I attended a Back to School Staples event and learned all about the latest and coolest items that are available at Staples this season. And, while at Staples, something even cooler happened. Look Below!
Nick Cannon arrived at Staples in NYC to share some new Monster headphones with all in attendance. What a fun experience!
While at Staples, we learned about all the great deals this back to school season:
Back to School Savings Pass
To make it easy for families to save this year, Staples announced the return of the popular Back-to-School Savings Pass, which provides a 15 percent discount on supplies. Available for purchase for $10 through Aug. 31, the savings pass is valid through Sept. 21, to accommodate the multiple trips often required to prepare for the new school year. For all of the latest deals and promotions for back to school, shoppers can follow #StaplesHasIt on Twitter and Facebook.
In addition to great savings, Staples will feature the hottest supplies including:

Millions of students in the U.S. can’t afford school supplies. That’s why Jake T. Austin, Staples and Boys & Girls Clubs have teamed up to raise money so students across the country can get the supplies they need to have a successful school year.
To help the cause, customers can donate $1 at checkout when they shop at their local Staples®store from 6/30/13 through 9/28/13.
