  • Morning Coffee: Staples Free Backback Deal Just Got Better

    As I’ve mentioned previously, you can get a free-after-rewards backpack at Staples this week, and today, Staples came out with a 15% off coupon. I’m guessing your rewards credit will be for the discounted price, but 15% off is pretty nice considering the price of most of the higher quality backpacks. If you hit the store today, you’ll also be able to pick up this week’s penny item (Bic pens).

    There are new coupons at that you can load to your store loyalty card for extra in-store savings. The coupons include Cheerios, Totinos, and Pillsbury. The Totinos and Pillsbury Sweet Moments coupons are ones I’ve never seen before. Links via Escalate Media Affiliate Network
