Save Money on Back to School Shopping

While some parents may consider back to school season the most wonderful time of the year, getting kids ready to return to the classroom can really strain a household budget. Earn rewards and save money on back to school shopping by taking advantage of Discover Deals when you make online purchases with your Discover card — and also get the chance to earn rewards or get discounts at the point-of-sale.

Back to School Deals on School Supplies

Before heading to the closest office supply store to stock up on pens, pencils and notebooks for your kids to use at school, check out Discover’s deals on school supplies. Log into your Discover account to see the current discounts at department stores in your area. You may find savings on everything from pencil cases to backpacks.

Discover Deals Can Help You Save on School Clothing

A new school year and growing kids means it’s time for a new wardrobe, and parents need all the help they can get to keep clothing costs down. The good news is several department stores partner with Discover Deals. Log in to Discover Apparel Deals to see current discounts and offers. Enjoy instant savings at checkout, plus earn Cashback Bonus rewards through Discover Deals. These rewards are in addition to the rewards you already earn on every purchase. However, take note that deals can expire, so if you find something you like, act fast.

Save on Kids’ Sports Equipment and Apparel

If your kids can’t wait to participate on school sports teams and take part in physical activity as part of their school day, you may be in the market for sports equipment. Appropriate footwear, athletic clothing and equipment for popular school sports like hockey, volleyball, football, track or basketball can strain mom and dad’s budget. That’s why it pays to find Sporting Goods Deals with Discover — you can outfit junior at an affordable price.

Back to School Shopping with Discover Deals for Technology

Today’s students often require more than a simple pencil case with a slide ruler and calculator. If back to school shopping for your student includes buying a tablet or laptop to take to school, be sure to look for deals on technology through partnerships with big-box retailers. Even better, items purchased on your credit card may qualify for purchase protection from damage or theft. So if that new laptop gets broken or stolen, within 90 days from the date it was purchased, up to $500 of the cost of replacing it could be covered.

Back to School Savings on Food

Take a bite out of back to school food purchases with grocery deals. If your children need a packed lunch and recess snacks, buying a week’s worth of convenient and school-friendly food can become costly. Log in to Discover Deals to find current savings at your big-box stores under Grocery Deals, and stock up on juice boxes and granola bars.

Sending one or more kids off to elementary school, high school or college with everything they need to be successful may cost more than parents expect. So don’t pay more than you have to — your Discover card comes with the added benefit of discounts and deals that can help you find great back to school deals.
