Fred Meyer Back to School Shopping Tips
Before I launch into the current deals, I’d like to provide you with some tips for shopping for school supplies at Fred Meyer:
- No need to rush. You’ll see a bunch of advertised deals each week in the ad. However, as you’ll see below – many of the top deals and “Price Blaster” items are good for at least a month.
- Make use of coupons. Make sure to keep your eyes out for both store and manufacturer’s coupons. Keep an eye at fredmeyer.com/coupons for e-coupons you can load to your Rewards card, too.
- Stock up! Many of these items are at my school supply stock-up prices (or are very nearly so). I’ve never had an issue with stock on these items at Fred Meyer.
- Watch for the Friends & Family Discount. Traditionally, Fred Meyer has put out a “Friends & Family” coupon in mid August. This coupon saves you an additional 10-15% on many items in the store and the exclusions are few. In the past, it has worked on Price Blaster items and school supplies. Heads up. (Note: this has come and gone.)
- Watch for Clothes, Shoes, etc. As Fred Meyer is more than just an office store, you’ll find lots of stuff for back to school – backpacks, clothing, lunch items, organizers, shoes, and more. Expect to find advertised sales on all of these items.
