I even remember when they came out with the pencils made from recycled blue jeans and school lunch trays in 1995. Can you tell how old I am? I made my mother buy me at least 4 packs of those, (in case you're wondering I was in 5th grade in 1995). Since Sanford Eagle pencils can no longer be found, I was buying mechanical pencils for my son. That was a bad idea. Then I head that Bic was coming out with a new pencil called Xtra-Fun. I was ecstatic when I saw this. I finally saw them hitting them shelves and for an 8-pack, they retailed for $3.49. Not the price I wanted to pay. I let the time pass by. Now with the coupon in the paper from last week and this week's sale at Staples, I snagged 4 packs of those pencils for my boy for only a quarter each!
Right now, Staples has a deal where you have to buy 5 of the products they have listed in their promo in order to get it for the promotional price. If you don't purchase 5, then you pay full price. Staples is the place to go if you want these pencils. I only bought 4 packs of Xtra-fun pencils and 1 pack of black Bic pens since the coupons were $1.00 off of 2. I bought 5 packs for under $2.00! Check out the breakdown below.
