Summer isn’t over yet — and as students are enjoying every last second of class-free life, now’s an opportune time to stock up on school supplies. Online and brick-and-mortar retailers are slashing prices on everything from clothing and backpacks to paper and tablets, which is why we’ve rounded up the best back-to-school sales.
Pro tip: Take advantage of mass retailers’ curbside pickup options, which allow you to buy online and easily pick up your order at a location near your home, office or school. This shopping method saves you time from browsing in stores, and you can easily return items if you realize one of your purchases (say, furniture that’s slightly too big for a small space) won’t work out.
From the best laptops on sale to stylish furniture for small spaces, to studying staples such as noise-canceling headphones, to budget-friendly air fryers and espresso makers (because those coffee shop breaks can get pricey), see some of our top product picks as well as the best back-to-school deals to shop online right now.
