Saving money on Back to School shopping!

August 15, 2011

Right now, if you spend $75 at any PREIT mall - including Cherry Hill, Springfield, and Plymouth Meeting malls - You can get some free school supplies.

Just take your same-day receipts to customer service and you'll get a bag with notebooks, pencils, and a folder.

And, if you're heading to the mall, take a smart phone with you. PREIT malls have a special app and website with twitter feed so you can get up-to-the minute store sales on the go!

Speaking of social media, follow your favorite retailers on Twitter and "Like" their Facebook pages for exclusive deals. For instance, through August 31st, Target is running a "1,000 Likes" promotion. Every Monday through Friday, the first 1,000 people "Like" a deal, get a mobile coupon for 50% off.

Office Depot is offering a free backpack and lunch tote with your $15 back to school purchase.

Need a computer? Buy a select laptop from Staples with your student ID or college acceptance letter - and you'll get a $100 Visa prepaid card! And Staples has a low price guarantee.

Apple is offering special student pricing through September 20th with up to $200 off a Macbook Pro. Plus, you'll get a free $100 Back to School Card to use at the App Store, iTunes, or iBookstore.

Buy a PC with Windows 7 from HP or Dell and get a free 4 gigabyte Xbox 360! To get the free Xbox, you do have to spend at least $609 at HP and $699 at Dell. Still, that's a pretty good deal considering the console is about $200 to buy.
