School supplies: money maker @Office Depot (in-store)

Starting Sunday, August 3rd, Office Depot is having 10-pk Paper Mate pens on sale for $.25/pack; there's a printable coupon for $1 off any 2 PaperMate products here (you can print 2 coupons per PC). There are a few other penny deals advertized (pencil sharpeners, pencil cases, rulers, folders, crayons), so (hopefully) you'll be able to apply the overage towards some other school supplies that you might need. And, on top of that PaperMate contributes some %% to your Upromise account (they base it on pre-coupon price)! If you are not registered with Upromise, you might want to consider doing so (it's free!) and they help you save for college, by putting some %% of stuff you buy into your special college savings account - it doesn't cost you anything more than you pay in the store for the products you buy (and they don't care if you used coupons - as long as you pay with your registered credit card or scan your store loyalty card /for grocery stores and pharmacies/ you'll get what you're entitled to). It may be pennies, but they add up: my CVS shopping alone helped put aside over $20 into Upromise account! I hope the amount grows by the time my girls start college. :)

I couldn't find the coupon for paper Mate? Is it already gone I wonder?

It was there when I posted, but I don't see it now either :(
