By their account...it was suppose to be $31 worth of products(though I would never purchase these items for that price!?!??!). However..Staples is having Teacher Appreciation Week! If you have their Teacher Reward Card...you were sent an e-mail with the items they have for a penny(limit 5 of each)! However..you have to buy at least $5 in other product(s). I thought the Neon Expo Markers would be fun..and they were on sale for exactly $5. The guy rings me up...looks at my receipt...and says..."WOW..THAT'S AMAZING!" $2.96!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pretty happy with that. Not sure how they come up with that price...but who am I to question a GREAT deal!
