I know summer's nowhere near over, but if you want to take advantage of back-to-school deals, now's the time to start shopping.

Here are some of the best deals this week, including some great deals on backpacks.

Not to be outdone, Office Max has a similar deal for business owners, teachers and homeschoolers. They'll give you the price of a bacpack back in MaxPerks Rewards, which must be spent by August 20, 2010. They'll do the same with your purchase of a 1" non-view binder, a 12-pack of Sharpie markers, a 3-pack of Uni-Ball gel pens, a ream of Hammerill copy paper or poly notebook. There are quantity limits and this deal expires on July 31, 2010, also.
