As we head back to school, many of us are not only spending money to freshen up our wardrobes, but on countless classroom supplies as well. There are many spectacular teachers out there who spend HUNDREDS each year just so their students can have a classroom environment that is welcoming, organized, and most importantly, makes them feel successful.
If you haven’t yet checked out Passion for Savings, please do yourself a favor and do so! You can find great deals, coupons, and all sorts of money saving tips! For us teachers, they put together a list of 90+ retailers that give teacher discounts—pretty amazing.
Here are a few of our favorites (for both in and out of the classroom):
Aside from crafting and DIYing at home, the classroom is a hot spot for creativity—even in High School the kids get giddy at the sight of markers and paper. Our beloved Joann’s, Michaels, and Hancock Fabrics offer 15% discounts for teachers with a valid id.
The Apple store offers both student and teacher discounts, whereas companies like Best Buy, Bose, Adobe, and Dell have special teacher discounts and promotions that vary throughout the year as well as by location. Certainly something worth looking into!
Barnes and Noble and Books-a-Million both offer educator discount programs that can save you 20% on materials for the classroom.
The Container Store- sign up online to receive special educator promotions via email! A well organized classroom is key not only for student success, but also for maintaining teacher sanity
School Supplies—(because if we had a dollar for anytime we heard “Can I have a pencil?”, we’d all be rich…)
Office Max, Staples, and Office Depot all offer teacher discount programs. You should also check with your county or district to see if you have an additional partnership program with any of these stores.
The Loft has a program called Loft Loves Teachers that you should join. You get 15% off and also receive special coupons throughout the year.
J Crew and The Limited both offer 15% with a teacher id while Banana Republic offers 10% with id.
We wish our fellow teaches many discounts, and a great start to the new school year!
