In August, backpacks are on shelves everywhere–from grocery stores and department stores to warehouses and websites. So how do you know where to shop? We’ve created a back to school backpack buying guide to highlight some of the best deals out there.
Toys R Us: Visit Toys R Us for not only their toys, but their great deals on backpacks for kids. You can get a free lunch kit when you buy any backpack priced at $12.99 or more on their site. They have backpacks that feature Frozen, Despicable Me 2 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to name a few. Sale ends 8/9.
JCPenney: At JCPenney you can combine a coupon code with their sale on backpacks to save two ways. Backpacks are currently 25% off (until 8/14) and there is a coupon code to save up to 15% on select items. They also give you the option to monogram backpacks for around $4.
L.L.Bean: Right now L.L.Bean is offering 25% off deluxe backpacks (until 8/25). The advantage of an L.L.Bean backpack is they are built to last. Their products come with 100% satisfaction guaranteed. That means you can return any purchase at any time. So if a zipper breaks or the lining starts to deteriorate, send it back! Added bonus, free shipping with no minimum order all the time.
Walmart: Walmart offers backpacks starting at just $7. Plus, they’re so confident in their prices, they’ve introduced the Savings Catcher.
