Sales Tax Holiday for SC – August 5-7, 2016

Don’t forget the SC sales tax holiday coming up soon.  I appreciate the parents who sent me some additional money saving suggestions….

Amazon

I thought I would forward an additional tidbit to you regarding free shipping and good prices for students – amazon.com has a special section for students (https://www.amazon.com/gp/student/signup/info) – students can sign up for amazon student for no fees for up to 6 months and are eligible for free shipping and the site has some wonderful discounts for supplies of all sorts.

Look for free shipping offers on online orders:

  • One suggestion is to purchase supplies online from Staples, Office Depot or Office Max. I believe they all offer free shipping if purchase is over $50.
  • Staples is good for school supplies and other things like cleaning supplies, coffee, and easy mac and cheese. If you are handy with a screwdriver some of the bookcases they sell are inexpensive, we got a great deal on one from their online clearance page.
  • Check out this website http://www.freeshipping.org for other sites with free shipping offers.

 Purchase during South Carolina tax free weekend:

———————————————————–

You may also be able to take advantage of the South Carolina break on sales tax. This year it is Aug. 5-7, 2016 and also works for online purchases during this period but they must be shipped to an address in South Carolina.

It applies to:

a.. Clothing

a.. Accessories

a.. Footwear

a.. School supplies

a.. Computers

a.. Computer equipment

We encourage all students and parents to help us reach our goal by donating needed school supplies. We are also will be using the donated supplies for a school supply closet on our campus for our students who have high financial need. The supply closet will be coordinated by the Academic Advising and Planning Center. There will be yellow bins at orientation for you to drop off any supplies you would like to donate if you are around campus.  You can also mail items directly to our office.  This year, we have set up an Amazon wish list so that you can buy items on amazon and have them sent directly to our office.  You can check out the list at https://amzn.com/w/2R8Q4JV4P5BSY. If you want to mail items, the address is:
