In case you don't know, Campinhas is over an hour from the city of S.P., though it's airport is sometimes misleadingly titled as a Sao Paulo airport (like GRU or the in-town Congonhas). So not the best idea.
Also, just FYI, anillos (I teach ESL, so don't be offended. Your English is quite good.):
" if you don't bother to arrive to Campinas"
If you don't bother to go to Rio, you will not see Sugarloaf mountain. (i.e. 'if you don't make the effort')
most English speakers would say:
"If you don't mind arriving in Campinhas"
or you could use the word 'bother' by saying:
"If it doesn't bother you to arrive in Campinhas" instead of Sao Paulo city, ......

4Azul offers a free shuttle bus to Barra Funda (convenient for the subway station) and Eldorado shopping Mall (located closer to most interesting parts of the city) in the city of Sao Paulo, really comfortable ones, with wi-fi included. If they offer much better prices than Gol or TAM and you don't mind the added time in transit (specially if your flight arrival and the bus departure aren't a good match), Azul is a company to consider.
I hope my English doesn't bother other more knowledgeable users...

5How far ahead are you organised?
If your like me, you won't know your leaving til the night before. If thats the case, the bus station in Puerto Iguazu or Foz do Iguazu (depending on where your staying), will have a few bus companies selling tickets to Sao Paulo.
If buying them from Puerto Iguazu, you will have to make your way to Foz do Iguazu's bus terminal a few hours before your departure (border buses don't wait for you at the Brazil side of immigration so you might wait a bit).
The bus is usually a night bus, so you do save on accom. But prices are generally the same for flights and buses (sometimes a flights cheaper).
