Early-Bird School Supply Deals on Amazon

Although School Supply season doesn't officially begin until the beginning of August, I couldn't resist getting started a little early and posting some pre-season Amazon deals.

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 majority of the deals that I have researched here are the very best that Amazon has to offer.  There are still some deals that routinely come up every year that haven't reared their heads yet, i.e. the under-$3.00 Crayola items are not out yet.

Many of items listed here are Amazon Add-On items, which means that the item ships free with a $25 minimum order.  You can order a bunch of Amazon Add-On items together (or multiples of the same one) to get to your $25 minimum and score that free shipping easily.

I've highlighted the deals I consider exceptional in bright yellow.

Save additional $10 on your $50 purchase of household products on Amazon

Get $10.00 off of your $50.00 minimum purchase of these household items at Amazon.  The $50 worth of items must be made in one purchase, so if you decide to use the Subscribe & Save discount on an item, you must buy multiples of only that item it to reach $50.00; otherwise you can't use the Subscribe & Save discount.  I'll give you some examples of what I mean below.

The $10.00 off $50.00 is in addition to any other coupons or discounts that are already available for an item, and the $50.00 minimum is before any coupons or discounts (yay!).  Not all of these items are great buys, but the $10 off $50 certainly sweetens the deal.

Here are just two ways you can take advantage of this discount:

Scenario 1, two items:

  1. Scott Tube-Free Toilet Paper, Double Roll, 48 Rolls, Bath Tissue (231 sheets per roll), $24.99 - $3.00 coupon = $21.99 with free 2-day Prime shipping.  My price point on toilet paper is around 50 cents a roll. This comes to 46 cents per double roll, and that's before I deduct the $10 off $50. If I deduct another $5.00, this drops the price to $16.99 or 35 cents per double roll!
  2. VIVA Choose-A-Sheet* Paper Towels, White, Big Plus Roll, 24 Rolls, $28.99 - $4.00 coupon = $24.99 with free 2-day Prime shipping.  My price point on Viva paper towels (which are clothlike, and a step up from regular brands like Bounty) is anything under a dollar a roll. This comes to $1.04 cents per roll of Viva, which is just slightly above my price point.  If I deduct another $5.00, this drops the price to $19.99 or 83 cents per roll of Viva!

So with this deal, I'll pay a total of $24.99 - $3.00 coupon + $28.99 - $4.00 coupon - $10.00 = $36.98 for 48 double rolls of Scott toilet paper and 24 rolls of Viva paper towels.

Scenario 2, two of the same item on Subscribe & Save:
  • 2 * VIVA Choose-A-Sheet* Paper Towels, White, Big Plus Roll, 24 Rolls$28.99 - 15% Subscribe & Save discount = $24.64.  Now I'm doing this S&S with a quantity of 2, so my total would be as follows:  ($24.64 * 2) = $49.28 - $4.00 coupon = $45.28 for 48 rolls of Viva.  My price point on Viva paper towels (which are clothlike, and a step up from regular brands like Bounty) is anything under a dollar a roll. This comes to 94 cents per roll of Viva.  If I deduct the final $10.00, this drops the price to $35.28 or 74 cents per roll of Viva.

Get ready! Amazon Prime Day 2018

This morning, TechRadar reported that they found a banner that was accidentally posted on the Amazon UK website that said that Prime Day will start midday on Monday, July 16 and then will continue all day on Tuesday July 17

There is no word from Amazon confirming these dates, so I'm still waiting for the official press release from Amazon, but if these dates are real, then WOW, 36 hours of deals deals deals!  

As you know from previous years, on Prime Day, I just don't go to sleep (thank God, I don't need all that much).  I post as many of the absolute best deals that I can bring you, and I focus in on the categories you guys all ask me about:  tech, clothing, baby, household, books, and more.  I've got a few special insider tricks up my sleeve to get hold of the best deals before the other sites get them, and I can't wait to share them with you.

Assuming this date is correct, this leaves a mere 25 days until Prime Day. Here's one thing you can do right now to prepare: sign up for my Daily Cheapskate Prime Day What's App group.  Do it now so that you won't forget.  This list will only be used for Prime Day information and deals and nothing else.  I don't care if you un-join the list as soon as Prime Day is over, just make sure you join up before 7/16/18. 

The Daily Cheapskate Prime Day What's App group is a great way to make sure you don't miss out on the best  Daily Cheapskate Prime Day deals without constantly having to check Facebook, Twitter, or the Daily Cheapskate websiteOpen this What's App invite on your smart phone now.  (Please note that this group is completely separate from the regular Daily Cheapskate What's App group.)

Now that the date has been leaked, it's a pretty sure bet that Amazon will be releasing their official Prime Day press report soon, so stay tuned, because I'm going to post all the Prime Day information as it comes out, (including those awesome Early Bird deals!).

FYI, Amazon's Prime Day Homepage will be located right over here, so you might want to bookmark this now.
