Heading out to do some tax-free shopping for school supplies this weekend? Here's a way to save even more money.

MetroPCS is giving away school supplies at participating Dallas-Fort Worth locations through August 21. That's right, free supplies, which could make a dent into your back-to-school budget.

Just head to a participating location during the scheduled time and dates. During the two-hour, in-store events, MetroPCS will hand out free cinch sacks filled with school supplies (limit 2 per adult) while supplies last. Each school supply kit will include a three-subject notebook, pocket folder, pencils, pens, eraser tops, glue sticks, ruler and a pack of 16-count crayons.

“The education of our community’s children is vitally important to our future. It brings great joy to our associates to have a small part in starting the school year off with new supplies to kids in our area,” said Peter Slater, director of field marketing for the north central region of MetroPCS in a news release.

In addition, MetroPcS is donating $1 to nonprofit group, After-School All-Stars of North Texas, for every phone activation in one of their stores during the month of August. After-School All-Stars after-school programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and life.
