BBB Highlights Back to School Tips

Most Illinois school districts will have students back in class by the middle of the month, but some parents may still be finishing up their back-to-school shopping. 


While there are many deals to be found, the Better Business Bureau wants to ensure you are using all the tools at your disposal to save as much as possible. One tip is to look in your child’s backpack to see what supplies remain, then cross those off your shopping list. BBB Investigator Don O’Brien says you would be wise to set a budget and stick to it.


Another trick that can save you money is buying in bulk if possible. He says many stores and software companies offer discounts. Some are available to students with either an .edu email address or a student ID. O’Brien reminds it never hurts to ask.
