Big Brands’ Best “Back to School” Sales EVER

These stores take back to school to the next level: helping you get all of the essentials for college and stylize your semester, from start to finish.

With so much competition online, brick-and-mortar stores are making it easier than ever to shop online and pick up in a store at your convenience. That means you can forget about packing up the car for college. Instead, do all of your shopping online and arrange to pick up your items at a store location right near campus!

Offering checklists of items, college searching tools to verify what you need (and what you don’t) and style guides, these retailers want to get your back to school business more than ever.

Here are some of the student promotions and back to school planning tools offered to help you prepare for college:
