Hot Deal for Pen Lovers (Non-Beauty-Related)
I posted about this little tidbit on my Instagram earlier today, and even though I never post about non-beauty-related deals here on the blog, it was such a hit with those of you who follow me on Instagram that I thought I should share it here too.
I'm a pen fanatic, and one of my favorites is the Pentel EnerGel (0.7 mm). Pentel says that these pens are great for lefties and, as a lefty myself, I totally agree! Anyway, I wanted to share this deal with you in case you love Pentel EnerGels:
Yesterday I was at Staples and if you shop at Staples you know that they have bins of single Pentel EnerGels at the register (all of the colors you see above, plus pink, orange, green, and black). These are usually 2 for $2 up at the registers. Well to my surprise, when I bought a few yesterday (Sunday, 1/18), they rang up $0.60 each! The cashier then mentioned that they're on sale at this price right now, so I bought six immediately. A six-pack on Amazon retails for $7. I paid $3.60 for 6 at Staples yesterday.
After I posted on my Instagram, I received comments from some of you who were able to get these pens for $0.60 each at your Staples stores TODAY (1/19). So as far as I know, they're still coming up $0.60, even though the sale seems to be unadvertised (at least at my store, there were no sale signs).
I do not know when this sale will end, however I called around to a few stores in my area and one employee told me they're back to $1, while at another store, the employee told me that the $0.60 sale "is still valid and it does not have an end-date at this time." I really don't know what to believe right now but if you're interested, definitely call your local Staples and ask them to SCAN one of these pens at the register to verify the price. Fingers crossed that they're $0.60 in your area too
PS: this sale only applies to the single pens up at the register, and it does not appear to be going on on the Staples website (a single EnerGel 0.7 mm pen on the Staples site is $3.19).
