Looking for some decent deals on back-to-school essentials this Prime Day? You’re going to have to do some digging.

While Amazon has a ton of pens, pencils, folders, notebooks, and binders listed “on-sale” ahead of its annual two-day event (which is scheduled for July 12 and 13 this year), data we examined on the price-tracking site camelcamelcamel revealed that most of them were actually still hovering around their historical averages. Kind of surprising, considering there have been some legitimately good deals across most of its other departments.

Take this Crayola marker set, for example, It looks like a good deal at $15.97 since Amazon’s pegged its MSRP at $23.98. But if you plug its URL into camelcamelcamel, you’ll see that it’s previously sold for an average of $15.33. Not such a good deal after all.
