CAPE CORAL, Fla., Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Parents looking to save money on back-to-school items for their kids should start with their computers. Online coupon sites that offer coupons for back-to-school supplies and clothes could help save hundreds or thousands of dollars.
"Since 2003, online shopping has quadrupled for back to school. And this year, smart shoppers are heading online in droves to comparison shop and find the best value," according to the National Retail Federation, which says total back-to-school spending is expected to reach $53.5 billion this year for college students, while total spending by families with children in kindergarten through 12th grade is expected to be $30.3 billion.
"Parents can find back-to-school coupons on everything from school supplies and laptops, to clothing and uniforms to dorm furniture and accessories," said Asif Malik, president of EzCouponSearch.com, a leading online coupon site.
The average family spends $688 to get ready for school, but smart shoppers who use online coupon sites can save anywhere from 5-20 percent on back to school supplies for certain items like laptop computers and electronics. Other coupons can cut shipping costs.
"Back-to-school shopping is an annual event that signifies the beginning of a new school year with hopes for the future. What student doesn't love getting fashionable new clothes, a clean loose-leaf binder and new pens to mark up that binder? It's the chance to start over and make new first impressions with a new teacher and new classmates. It's the stuff dreams are made of," said Malik. "Of course, when parents have to pay the bills, there's a collective gasp when they see the prices they have to pay. So when they can save money, smart parents look to online shopping for bargains."
