Here’s where to find the best back-to-school deals

If you are hunting for back-to-school bargains, deal experts say you’ll find the best prices this season at big box stores.

Brent Shelton, a spokesman for FatWallet.com, an online deal and coupon website, said larger retailers and websites like Office Depot, Kohl’s and Amazon have traditionally offered the best savings on back-to-school supplies and clothing.

“August is prime time for back-to-school shopping,” Shelton said. “This is when retailers are ‘all in’ and competing for your business.”

Benjamin Glaser, an editor with DealNews.com, said he expects Target and Walmart to offer some of the best prices this fall.

For those in need of school supplies, Glaser said Target is a one-stop shop for deals.  If you are looking for clothing and backpacks, Walmart may have slightly better prices, Glaser said.

Shelton recommends shoppers keep a close eye on sales advertisements, but he says if you miss a deal, “don’t fret.” Stores will be offering back-to-school discounts through mid-August, he said.
