There are quite a few companies who show their appreciation to teachers by providing them with discounts on their everyday purchases. (Thank you, teacher-loving companies. 😍) While there are more than those listed in this post which offer teacher discounts, I have highlighted the easiest ones to implement because we know how busy teaching life is, and it's just as important to be thrifty with your time as it is with your money.
The Container Store: Sign up and receive a one time use 10% off coupon. Coupons will be sent periodically through email.
Michaels: The easiest NO FUSS teacher discount out there! 😍 Why? All you need to do is show up at the counter with your teacher ID and you will get 15% off your purchase. It also includes sale items. 👏
JoAnn Fabric: Sign up, and receive your 15% off code online. (It takes a few minutes to come through.)
Lakeshore Learning: Offers U.S. teachers 15% off of in-store items. You will need to apply at the store.
Office Depot/Office Max and Staples have a rewards system that are NOT exclusive to teachers. Not my favorite since I feel like it is a bit of a hassle, and you don't get your discount right away. However, I am linking them up here in case you are interested in reading more about them.
Barnes and Noble: Save 20% off the publisher's list price on all purchases for classroom use. Apply in store where you will need to fill out an application and show a valid teacher ID. You will then be issued a card that you can show at the counter whenever you shop.
Bookmans: Offers 20% off any purchase once you register online for their Project Educate program and bring in the confirmation email along with a valid ID.
Half Price Books: Teachers who show proof they are a teacher (includes private and public school teachers, college/university teaching assistances, librarians and recently laid off teachers) will receive an additional 10% off.
Quail Ridge Books (located in Raleigh, NC): Their membership gives teachers 30% off New York Times hardcover bestsellers, a 10% discount on most personal choices, and 21% off of books that will be used in the classroom.
Ann Taylor LOFT: Sign up online for their "Loft Loves Teachers" program and receive special discounts and 15% off regularly purchased items.
J.Crew: Offers 15% off in store purchases at J.Crew, J.Crew Factory and J.Crew Mercantile when you show a valid teaching ID.
Quiksilver: Offers a 15% off discount to teachers who verify online.
Roxy: Offers a 15% off discount to teachers who verify online.
