Buy any backpack from Staples and get 100% of the cost back in the form of a Staples gift card now until July 31, 2010. There are a lot of great back to school deals going on right now so you can maximize your dollars by looking for $.01, $.05, $.25 and $.99 items.
This is technically free because you get your money back, but since you still have to shell out a few bucks for the backpack, it’s actually a savings of 50%. In other words, if you pay $10 for the backpack and get a $10 gift card, you get $20 of merchandise for $10. Still a fab deal!
