Back to school sales are at their peak right now. From laptops to backpacks, retailers are offering impressive discounts on all things school-related. However, inflation, stock shortages, and shipping delays are affecting this year’s sales.
The Apple Store, for instance, is seeing shipping delays that stretch into late August for select Macs. Covid lockdowns throughout China are also causing shipping delays on everything from monitors to gaming rigs.
As a result, we’re recommending consumers make their back to school purchases as soon as possible this summer. While back to school sales are usually offered through early September, if you’re shopping for a particular device your best bet is to secure it on sale asap and avoid any potential shipping delays or stock shortages.
Below we’re rounding up the best back to school deals on everything from Chromebooks to dorm-friendly coffee machines.
