It goes by many names. "Laptop Computer". "Netflix Machine". "The Fancy Abacus". Whatever your chosen nomenclature, you can't afford to be without a decent Fancy Abacus when you hit the classroom this fall. This Lenovo model is a cool $110 off its list price, and at 16" and 4-lb., shouldn't be too taxing to cart around campus.

High Sierra Zestar 15" Laptop Backpack

Between your Fancy Abacus and whatever second-hand textbooks you've managed to find to avoid paying through the nose for new editions, you'll need a decent backpack to shoulder it all. This colorful High Sierra style comes with a $1.87 Rakuten credit, which isn't much, but does knock it to a total of $22 off list. (And we all know every little bit of coffee money helps.) It features a side beverage pocket, multi-pocket organizer, daisy chains, and a mesh padded grab handle.

Pentel Pens, Pencils, and Refills
Store: Amazon

We hear tell of a competition to find the best pencil user in the world. Writers of any style come from all over the globe to engage in some calligraphic violence in what's known as... the Ultimate Graphiting Championship. Was that pay-off worth the extensive premise-building? Probably not – but this Pentel sale is definitely worth checking out. Our pick of the discounts is the Pentel Sharp Kerry Automatic Pencil, which drops to $8.79, saving you $6.

Teaching Supplies Sale

Of course, it's not just students returning from a much-needed summer break. Any teachers looking for a good way to stock up on stationery, learning tools, and even fluroescent lights can save big by browsing Amazon's sale. You'll have to act fast on these Cinderella savings though – this sale won't last past midnight.
