Much to the chagrin of kids all over, summer is slowly coming to an end which mean’s it’s back-to-school shopping season! Every day you open your mailbox to new mailers advertising sales left and right for items ranging from mechanical pencils to steals on laptops and tablets. All of these items are necessities for the beginning of the school year, but knowing how to shop efficiently for them is the key. I buy a lot of items from Office Depot and other supply stores and I always use my Chase Ink Bold for purchases. The card give a whopping 5x on points, at some stores you can even purchase gift cards for Southwest Airlines, Home Depot, Lowes, Starbucks, and Amazon which is a great quick way to rack up points.
Since shopping for school supplies can be a costly endeavor, we wanted to give one lucky TPG reader the opportunity to win a $500 Office Depot gift card which will help pay for those crayons, TI-82’s and more! Visit our Facebook Sweeps Page to enter. Enter by 11:59pm EST on Monday, August 18th and one lucky entrants will be picked at random to win.
