Back to School Saving Tips

Start Now

The Back to School shopping season started early this year and is in full swing. By spacing shopping out you will get the best deals each week. Buy loss leaders each week and Tax Free Weekend is better for your bigger purchases like electronics and clothes.

Just in case you haven’t heard:

The State of Tennessee’s Annual Sales Tax Holiday is held every year, beginning at 12:01 a.m. on the first Friday in August and ending at 11:59 p.m. the following Sunday night.  During this weekend, certain goods may be purchased tax free.  This year’s tax-free holiday weekend begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 7 and ends Sunday, August 9 at 11:59 p.m.

Price Match

To save gas and time take advantage of the price matching policies at Wal Mart, Target or Staples to get the lowest price on all the supplies you need in one stop.

Target Price Match Policy:

We’ll match the price if you buy a qualifying item at Target or CityTarget stores then find the identical item for less in the following week’s Target weekly ad or within seven days at,,,,, or in a competitor’s local printed ad. Price match may be requested prior to your purchase. Simply bring in proof of the current lower price, your original receipt and we’ll match the price at the Guest Service Desk.

Wal-Mart Price Match Policy

We’re committed to providing low prices every day, on everything. So if you find a current lower price from an online retailer on an identical, in-stock product, tell us and we’ll match it.

The following are guidelines and limitations:

  • The prices on and online retailers* will be matched
  • Our customers must provide the online price and retailer
  • The item must be currently in-stock at the online retailer’s website at the time the request for the price match is made

  • We reserve the right to verify the price of the identical, in-stock item at the online retailer’s website (i.e., size, model, quantity, brand, color)
  • We will limit quantities to one-per-customer, per item, per day

Staples 110% Back To School Price Match Policy

1. Find a lower price
2, Bring in proof of that qualifying lower price
3. Speak to a store associate and we’ll match the price plus we will discount it by 10% of the difference
