I know it’s very tempting to throw them to one side, but when the book lists arrive home to our house, instead of burying them in bottom of my handbag until the end of the holidays, I head straight into Eason because I know that they offer 10% OFF School Books and up to 50% OFF stationery, but only until mid-July!
Not only do I save loads of money doing this, I also save loads of time because of their Book List Drop OFF Service!
How does that work?… Exactly as the name suggests … simply pick up a form in store, fill out your required list of books (or like me, just staple it inside!), drop it back into Eason and just wait for the text to say your books are ready to collect! They say within 7 days, but mine we’re ready in two, and they even offer a book covering service!
Every year Marks & Spencers kick off their Back to School campaign in June, with a substantial 20% OFF School Uniforms. See here for more details on the M&S Back to School early bird offer
As you can imagine, with discounts as good as these, stock sells out fast, so get in good and early to be sure of getting the items and sizes you need. I usually take advantage of the Thursday/Friday late night shopping hours to bring the kids in to try things on.
These massive discounts really makes a difference to parents’ pockets, especially if you have multiple kids to buy for, and as well as low prices, you get excellent quality.
