Back-to-school season is one of the best times of the year for students and parents alike. There’s so much that’s new, so much possibility for the year ahead and this year in particular, it means a much-needed break for parents who’ve been holding down the fort at home. When you’re a student, the start of a brand new school year means many things — anticipatory energy, sometimes dread, and shiny new binders. For parents? Usually, it comes with a big bill for school supplies, new outfits, backpacks and more. Thankfully, there are plenty of back-to-school sales from top brands looking to help you and your student save big on supplies.

Whether you’re a teacher looking for a brand new bag, need a new kids backpack for your kindergartner or a kids lunch box that’s not going to smell within the first two weeks — there are plenty of deals going on that’ll help you save. You don’t have to be a kid to get that back-to-school rush, getting a great deal on exactly what your child needs can give you that same feeling as an adult. Whether you’re a student or not, you should take advantage of the best back-to-school sales from big brands like Levi’s, HP, Staples, Apple and more.

Better yet, Staples offers free two-day shipping and free returns on many online orders, and it’s one of the best places to buy school and office supplies online — even when prices aren’t discounted.
