Last Minute Back-to-School Shopping #PayPalURtech @PayPalCA @BBYCanada

Like most parents across Canada I sent my teens back to school and outfitted them with the tools they need to succeed last week. However, there are many items that were left off the back-to-shopping list, like headphones for studying and other gadgets I had not thought about until now. PayPal, which is now accepted at Best Buy, is a convenient solution to make sure those forgotten items are shipped right to my teens’ so I don’t have another thing to add to my busy to-do list.

What more can a mom ask for? Easy to order, easy to pay and shipped right to our door. I am always on the look out for places that accept PayPal. For me it is a great option to pay for items I buy online. Fast, secure and so easy! 


When it comes to back to school shopping I am pretty prepared. Having four kids I like to pick a little bit up at a time and budget. However, it is impossible to prepare when you have teens in high school. We were not even aware of my sons schedule until the Friday before school. The Friday before the long weekend. Who wants to shop on a long weekend?? Not me. He is in grade ten this year and has four classes. One being gym and needing special clothing and sporting equipment. The other a tech class needing safety items and the other two business and math. So calculators, recording devices and more. When in high school, all teachers expect all of the students to have access to a computer and the internet as well. We are almost two weeks in and I am still picking up last minute items for them. Best Buy is making this not only easier, but affordable as well.


Deal alert-Best Buy has a great promo on now. The promotion of getting $15 cash back on a $150 purchase or $40 cash back on a $400 purchase (only valid until September 12th). So if you have things YOU need to pick up , now is the time. 

Over the summer I was able to get my son a lap top for school. But I forgot to get him a Logitech wireless mouse as well as a laptop messenger bag for it. Luckily I was able to order them both from Best Buy and pay with my PayPal account. No credit card needed, makes this great for students as well. 


Best Buy offers free shipping , same day on orders over $20. for someone like me, who lives in the country this is a great deal. You can read more about using PayPal to shop at Best Buy online here. 

Giveaway time!

I know many of you still need a few things for back to school. So Best Buy and PayPal would like to help you out. 3 Canadian readers will each win $100 via PayPal. If you do not have a PayPal account it is easy to set up. Fill out the form below for your chance to win. Good Luck!  ends Sept 18 2013
