Updated list of Amazon School Supply Deals (15 new items added, 8/28/15)


I've updated the Daily Cheapskate list of Amazon back-to-school supply deals for this year.  There are 15 new items on the list today, 8/28/15.

Can you do better on the cost of school supplies at Staples and Office Depot?  On some items, absolutely, but you need to wait for the sale and get in the car.  For some of you busy Moms & Dads, the trade-off between the time spent loading your kids in the car,  going through the store circular, matching it up to your list, cruising up and down the aisles looking for the sale items (and hoping they are still in stock), added to the cost of gas is just not worth it if you can pick up most of what you need sitting in your sweats in front of your laptop in your air-conditioned living room.  The advantage of time and convenience over money is completely a personal choice.  I can tell you that the deals that I have researched here are the very best that Amazon has to offer.

Some of items listed here are Amazon Add-On items, which means that the item ships free with a $25 minimum order for Prime members (and its price counts toward that $25) or it ships free with a $35 order if you don't have Amazon Prime.  You can order a bunch of Amazon Add-On items together (or multiples of the same one) to get to your $25 or $35 minimum and score that free shipping easily.

LOWEST PRICE: Movado Museum Watch (either men's or women's style) for $189 shipped


This is definitely the lowest price that I've ever posted on the beautiful and elegant Movado Museum watch.  Ashford has got the Movado Museum watch in both men's and women's styles for $247.50, but enter promo code AFFMUSEUM189 at checkout, and that price drops to $189.00.  Shipping is free.   The watch features a Swiss quartz movement, a stainless steel case, leather band, minimalist dial, and the signature Movado dot.   Each watch comes with a 2-year warranty.

Amazon Gold Box Deal of the Day: Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 for $44.99 (for PC or Mac)



When I'm not the Cheapskate-in-Chief on this blog,  I'm a webdesigner, and I've worked as one for over 18 years.  I use the full version of Adobe Photoshop for my work, but it comes with a professional pricetag.

Whenever friends ask me to recommend graphic-editing software for them, I always tell them about Photoshop's "little sister," Elements 13. Elements 13 is scaled-down version of Photoshop that lets you create and edit your graphics and images easily.  And for today (8/25/15) only for their Gold Box Deal of the Day, Amazon dropped the price on Photoshop Elements to its lowest price ever, $44.99 with free shipping for the PC/Mac version (it normally goes for about $80). 
  • Organize - All your stuff, when you want it. Order, label, find, and view your photos your way.
  • Edit - Amazing photos - no experience needed. Make quick edits, add artistic touches like a pro, or transform your photos to show your vision. Photoshop Elements can guide you through or do it for you.
  • Create - Be the creative one in the family. Make photo books, scrapbooks, and cards to share lasting memories.
  • Share - Share a photo album right to a web gallery for friends and family everywhere to enjoy. And be social -share to Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, Twitter, and more.
  • Go - Sync your mobile photos with Elements and your Elements photos with your mobile devices, so you can access any memory anywhere.
