This week you’ll find two coupon inserts in your newspaper, a Redplum and a Smartsource. These coupons will go great with some deals this week, as well as upcoming deals.

This week’s lesson is how to shop at the office supply stores. Even if you don’t have an office, it’s always great to take advantage of these great deals. Some items you can get completely free after the rewards, just like at the drugstores.

Staples is a well-known office supply store. Although we don't have one in Lima area, you can earn cash back by using their website.

Staples has a rewards card where you can earn a percentage of your money spent back. It's currently at 5 percent. You can sign up online. This card can be used to get the sale prices and earn a percentage back. They also offer rebates that make many items free or very cheap compared to regular retail pricing. For example, you’ll pay $7 for photo paper and get back a $7 rebate, or pay $24.99 for two reams of paper and get back $12.50, making the final cost only $12.50 for two! This rebate program is called Easy Rebate.

Another office store is Office Max, which is in the Lima area. They have a rewards card called Maxperks. You can sign up for this in the store or online. This will earn you discounts and even free items. You will pay for your items out of pocket and then get back the same amount or sometimes a little less back in rewards. These rewards can be used toward other items, and if you’re lucky, you will earn rewards from those products as well. Some deals are valid online only, but many times it is for free items. Pay a little upfront to get going with these deals and keep rolling those rewards over. This is a great way to save money. It’s very much like the drugstore game.

You can find great deals for both of these stores at www.Hip2Save.com. Click on the tab that says “Stores,” “All stores,” and then pick the store you want.
