Forget hitting the mall and standing in the checkout line for your back to school shopping this year. If your kid is going into K-12 or heading off to college, Amazon has what you need, and a few things you might want to buy for yourself!
The specials on school supplies just can’t be beat, so buy in bulk. You will find notebooks, pens, pencils, scissors, staplers and everything else that your kid needs for the classroom. Don’t forget to check out their online coupons for even bigger savings on all of your purchases.
Amazon is also currently offering some deep electronics discounts. From laptops to calculators and everything in between, you will find savings here from 5-20%. Check out the Samsung Series 5 Chromebook with 3G for $399 or the 16 GB Sony Tablet for $299.99. Grab yourself a couple of bottles of Endust LCD and Plasma Screen Cleaner too - there’s an instant coupon for $0.50 off.
Backpacks, lunch boxes and even snacks are on sale, too. Grab your kid a Monster High backpack or go for Batman, Hello Kitty or SpongeBob SquarePants and every color of the rainbow. Shop for quality lunch boxes by Thermos or opt for a trendy Bento Box in dozens of colors and patterns. Amazon has a huge selection of BPA-free containers, including stainless steel to keep your kid’s food fresh and safe. There’s even a Wonder Bread sandwich keeper that also removes the crust from you picky child’s bread!
Although it may seem like an unusual item to buy online, Amazon has a great variety of musical instruments for your creative, musical kid. The classic band and orchestra instruments are available, like saxophones, violins, trumpets, clarinets and drums. Accessories and parts, such as reeds for woodwind instruments, are also available on Amazon. Instruments like keyboards, electric guitars and drum kits are on sale, also, if your kid has rock band inclinations. Look for the Davison Guitars beginner’s starter package with an electric guitar, amplifier and more for less than $80.00.
If your child is heading off to college, Amazon has you covered with everything they will need for their dorm room or apartment. Everything from electronics to bedding, small appliances and laundry essentials are available and on sale. There is also a good selection of quality furniture, so if your child needs a desk for their dorm room, you will find one here. Of course, you can also find some coupons and discounts for these products.
Don’t forget that Amazon does offer free shipping as long as you buy at least $25 worth of qualifying items. If you use the site often, check into Amazon Prime. For a reasonable yearly fee, Prime gives you free two-day delivery on most items sold from Amazon direct.
