Can you believe it’s already back to school??
I absolutely can not. Really—can someone please explain to me where the summer went, or where the whole year has gone, for that matter? I can’t believe my kids are now three and going-on-five years old, or that my daughter will be in Pre-K this fall—which means there’s just one more year till Kindergarten (oh my, can someone please pass the tissues?).

The coolest thing about Jet? The prices drop as you shop!
Everyday low prices are just the start: Jet gives you the power to make prices drop even lower. As you add items to your cart, Jet.com keeps a running total of your purchases on the side of the screen, so it’s easy to stay on top of what you’re getting and how it’s all adding up. Best of all, the more items you purchase in one order, the cheaper they get, since multiple items can be bundled together in one delivery. And Jet offers FREE shipping on orders over $35—a minimum order price that’s easy to reach and makes shopping at Jet.com a breeze.
Bundling multiple items into one order appealed to my inner environmentalist! And it was cool to watch the prices of my items drop each time I added something new to my cart. Everything started out at a great price, and then got even more affordable each time I found something new that we needed! I found everything on our list, I used the TRIPLE15 promo code to get 15% off my order, and I got FREE shipping on top of it all. What could be better?
My husband is a teacher, so it’s back-to-school season for him, too. He was excited to find that Jet even offers clothes for kids and adults, like men’s Levi’s and Hanes tee shirts, all at a great price. For our first order, we got pens, markers and coveted, hard-to-find Mead composition books, along with new shoes for my daughter, a Finding Dory lunchbox for my son, and a classic children’s book for me to read to the kids at bedtime.
Whatever your family needs for the new school year, Jet has it. You can get two-day delivery on thousands of items, including household basics like laundry detergent and snacks that are delivered fast, directly to your door. Jet has items for schoolchildren, teachers and college students, as well as things for people like me, who start salivating in the presence of blank books and fresh pens (and so many, many other things).
Our stuff arrives!
My kids are always so helpful with opening boxes, especially when they contain exciting new things for them to enjoy. After oohing and ahhing over her new PF Flyer shoes and Mead comp book, my daughter grabbed her new markers and immediately started drawing.
And I couldn’t help squeeing when I pulled out my new, multi-colored Pilot Roller Ball pens! While I used to teach, I’m currently neither a student nor a teacher—but I will never outgrow my deep love of office supplies. (And Mead comp books! Seriously, are they not the holy grail of school supplies? They’re nearly impossible to find in stores from July through September! Which must be why I grab them whenever I see them, even when they’re not technically on my list.)
And my son was over the moon about his new Finding Dory lunch box! Thanks to Jet.com, my husband is ready for a successful new school year, my son is all set for Year 2 of preschool, and Pearl is ready to conquer Pre-K. Thanks, Jet!
