Child tax credits started hitting US bank accounts Thursday and parents are receiving $250- $300 per child. If you’ve received your first child tax credits, but haven’t decided how you’ll spend (or save) it, we’ve got an idea for you: get the kiddos new electronics to increase their productivity as they head back to school. We’ve rounded up a few great back-to-school electronics under $250.

With the extra funds in your pocket, you may be able to purchase a bit more than the ordinary school supplies this year. Consider investing in products that will last longer, elevate their learning and physical fitness, or maybe splurge on “nice-to-haves” like a 3D printer or Apple Watch. Parents in Texas, remember, you can make your child tax credits go further by shopping during Tax-Free Weekend, August 6-8.  So, browse our list and keep checking back to Chron Shopping for more great deals and back-to-school ideas like backpacks starting at only $9.99 at Academy.
