Newbie Scenario
If you have ECB's starting this week you can do the scenario I did above but for newbies with no ECB's you can do the following deal to get some awesome cheap school supplies. The scenario below is only good Sunday-Tuesday this week. Remember, if you're doing multiple transactions to go to the end of the line after each one - it's only fair!
