Staples $200 Give Card Giveaway!!


I'm joining up with some of my best blogging buddies to bring you a HUGE giveaway!!! 

What could possible that huge???

(thanks, Tessa for making the cute button!)

It's a $200 Staples Gift Card from Coupons.com!!!!

YES, you read that correctly!!

To find the deals for Staples on Coupons.com, click HERE

So here is what I'm going to be stocking up on from Staples.

You can NEVER have too many dry erase markers! And since I work in a Title I school, my kids don't always come with everything I want them to, so I like to keep a stock of dry erase markers, especially since we use them for everything!! (Remember those cool dry erase pockets from Mardel that I posted about a little while ago??)

and because it seems like they EAT gluesticks, I'll probably stock up and glue sticks



and of course, INK!!!




I like getting the XL, because the ink lasts SO much longer, even with the amount that I've sent through my printer! (Thank, Bubbly Blonde, for telling me that trick!)

And of course, I'm going to need laminating sheets!


Ok, so now you've seen what I need...what do you need/want?!
(aren't those two words synonymous in this case?!)

So now you can enter to win!! The rafflecopter is the same on all the blogs involved, so you only need to enter on one blog, but make sure to follow all the "entries!" Good luck!!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

(I was lucky enough to have been given a $50 Gift Card to Staples to help purchase these items I showed.)

I could buy so many things with that $200 gift card! Definitely ink! But also, I'd like to get each child a zipper pencil pouch for their word study binders to use for word sorts each week - would be much better than the ziplocs I currently use!

Would love to win this gift card for my classroom. I too teach at a Title 1 school where supplies are lagging. This would help me out so much. Thank you for a great give away. I've been following your blog for a while now and I love your ideas. I shared this blog with my sister in law who is going back to teaching after a few years off.

Mrs. Nunley said...

This is an AWESOME giveaway! $200 dollars would go a long way in our classrooms. I would purchase ink, zipper pouches for the great pencil challenge, oh the list goes on and on!

This giveaway is unbelievable!!! I would use the giftcard at Staples to buy classroom supplies for my 2nd graders. I teach in a low income county, so I have to buy my students' supplies myself. Due to 2 serious surgeries, my money has to be S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-D out this year!! Thanks for this opportunity!

Kristin Hatt said...

There are so many things that I need throughout the year so reasonably I should save it for those times but my down fall is decorating my classroom. This year ill be teaching kindergarten so I might splurge and buy the primary composition books. Honestly there are way too many things!

Tracy Cherry said...

Ink, pencils, Ink, and more pencils!!

Jenni said...

I would buy tons and tons of cardstock for all of the things I print at home, plus ink to make them cute! I would buy lots of Sharpies and G2 pens as well!

The Meek Moose said...

At first, I was thinking of buying cardstock- because I go through a lot of that- but then I thought- hey, this would be a prize and unexpected and I might as well get something FUN for the kids. So I think I would raid their crafty/art Crayola supplies and get tons and tons for my kids to keep. I work at a Title I school and the poor bunnies just come with NOTHING- so they would be thrilled with such a gift!

Melissa Tackett said...

I would definitely buy some more color ink!! My new school doesn't have a color printer! What's a TpT lover to do?!

Mrs. Schlickbernd said...

I love school supplies!! Most important things I need right now - spiral notebooks, binders, and GLUE STICKS! Last year was my first in second and I didn't realize how much glue they use! I was begging my colleagues for any extras they had at the end of the year.

If I won a Staples gift card, I would definitely get some laminating pouches. I just got a laminator this summer. Markers and crayons are high on my list, too. Finally, I saw a really cute Scotch tape dispenser shaped like a dog with a dog bowl. I'd splurge and get that, too.

This would be a blessing!

Cynthia Arki said...

Oh how awesome it would be to win! I would stock up on supplies and ink! Maybe finally buy a laminator for my house! Definitely buy some storage drawers too. Even if I don't win it has been fun entering and looking at all of the TPT stores and blogs! Thanks!

psychorazorback said...

$200 would go a long way at Staples especially with their penny deals and dollar deals. I would probably get pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners (plural because of how often things get stuck in there that don't belong :) ), glue, colored pencils, crayons, folders, spirals, binders...oh I could go on and on for 200 dollars of deals :)

Lvgirl7 said...

When I win this gift card, I will buy the essential supplies for my students: notebook paper, pens, erasers, markers, dry erase markers, index cards, binders! We write so much in my class, and I know it's often difficult for my students to come up with money to buy their school supplies that I keep a set in the class for them. WInning this gift card would be AMAZING!!!!

Lauren said...

I can't wait to win! I go to Staples like every.single.day!!!

Laura Love to Teach

Ems72314 said...

Jamie Heiser said...

I would be thrilled to win this prize! I would purchase ink, card stock, and colored paper (our school has reduced costs by purchasing extremely flimsy card stock and getting my hands on colored paper is like going through the Underground Railroad). I would also purchase post-its for the kiddos!

cherrita tatnall said...

What an awesome give away! I would use the money to buy colored card stock and lamination film. I love creating workstations and I use colored card stock to differentiate the stations and of course the laminator to make them sturdy!

Mrs. Morton said...

I am so excited!!!I could buy all kinds of goodies like glue sticks and card-stock for my classroom :). Thank you so much for posting this and good luck to everyone.

Kim Wilke said...

Kim Russell said...

I would buy some fun pencils along with regular ones since we go through so many, erasers, containers to keep station pieces in, composition notebooks because they don't fall apart.

I'm curious...what is the printer ink trick?

Brandi Guerra said...

If I won this amazing giveaway, I would buy so many goodies for my kids. I teach on a military base and work with the most adaptable, diverse, unique kids! Their families work so hard and unfortunately, don't always have the funds to supply their child with the necessary school items. I would use this gift card to make sure every single student has the supplies they need, want, etc. to feel just as prepared and privileged as the next child!

Stacie said...

Wow, this is awesome!! I would buy lots of dry erase markers and glue and anything else they don't bring. I also work in a TItle I school so supplies are not always plentiful.

Brick House Project said...

I would purchase a class set of compasses. The ones at my school are old and wobbly and it is very hard to get the students to bring them. They are an expensive out of pocket expense.

Allison M. said...

I would purchase items for my classroom (markers, paper, folders, organization pieces, etc). I've been out of teaching for a few years, so I need to upgrade some of my things!

Lindsey said...

This would be amazing!! There are so many things I could get for back to school!

MrsE71 said...

Gosh! Where would I start? I need a laminator, a WONDERFUL pencil sharpener, pencils, dry erase markers, scissors...the last could go on and on. Working in a Title I school makes it hard to expect students to come with all the necessary supplies. Crossing my fingers I win!

Amy Harrod said...

I would get glue sticks, glue sticks and more glue sticks--- colored tape, boards, paper, and maybe an mp3.

Kelly Teaching Fourth said...

I would definitely buy ink! I have so many things that I need to print before school begins. Pens would be on my list as well.

Love it! So true that we don't always have the money/budget to buy the things we need. Love chances like these. :)

Ashley Daymon said...

It would be such a blessing to have this $200 gift card! I am a new 2nd grade teacher at a title 1 school. I have taught 4th and 5th grade in the same school, and each year, students rarely bring in staple materials. Simple things like dry erase markers, paper, notebooks and pencils usually wind up coming out of my pocket. This would be a huge help!

parveen said...

I could use $200 for so many things, ink, paper, craft items...It would be great

Rainah Pray said...

SO much that I could by. Pencils, pens, toner for my printer. The list goes on and on!

cmsmiley said...

Lordy, Lordy....computer ink and copy paper!! I run out of these 2 things every year!

I would love to buy a new pencil sharpener, although, I'm sure this could be useful for all sorts of things as I start out in my first classroom!

Jenna Frederick said...

Wow! Where to even begin! With $200 I would buy lots of computer ink, to print all the wonderful creations I find on TPT, dry erase markers (because we always seem to run out!), laminating pouches, glue sticks, colorful paper, sharpies, twistable crayons!
