(NEW YORK) -- Staples launched the back-to-school season early on Tuesday, announcing a 110% price match guarantee, a selection of typical back-to-school products that will be priced low all season long and continued weekly deals.
"At Staples, we're committed to offering the widest assortment of great products at the best prices for back to school," Senior Vice President of North American Stores and Online Marketing Alison Corcoran said. The company claims the lowest prices on school supplies, aiming to help shoppers "make more happen for less."
Under the 110% price match guarantee, Staples customers will receive a low-price guarantee on any item purchased in stores or online beginning June 29. Any customer who purchases an item that is later sold by Amazon or "any retailer who sells products in both retail stores and online under the same brand" will not only have the lower price matched, but they will receive an additional 10 percent of the difference between the prices from Staples.
Considering many students have just finished the school year in the last week or so, promoting back-to-school sales in June seems quite early.
