Teacher Discounts Cheat Sheet

August 1, 2014 | Posted By: Heather Stephens | Categorized in: Shopping, Back to School

(Updated 5/2014)

Teachers are hard at work and we want to make sure you're saving on your school shopping!

Kids across the country have sent cards and home-made treats to their teachers, colored pictures, written poems, and told their teachers how special they are! Simply put, in our family, we think our teachers rock and we want them to know it!

Stores want to show their appreciation too, and lucky for you teachers out there, it's not just for a week, it's ALL YEAR in most instances! Woo!

And to celebrate you some more, and show appreciation for all you do from the FatWallet staff, we've done the homework for you and rounded up all these teacher discounts into a handy cheat sheet!

Now most of these stores offer the discount in-store only and "YMMV=Your Mileage May Vary" meaning that different stores in different locations may have different teacher discount policies. But with a little effort on your part you can save big on all the things you need for your classroom when you flash your teacher ID!

I'm going for the extra credit and sharing with you which stores are here on FatWallet offer cash back so you can save money on all your non-classroom purchases for yourself, your family, gifts, etc! They're the ones listed with the store coupons, cash back amount, a cash back link to the store, and the store logo.

Let me hear another "Woo!"

Thank you, teachers, for all you do!

P.S. Special thanks to Peter Siess, Brittany Meierdirk & Brent Shelton & Carrie Niday who collaborated with me on this list!

    Clicked on this because of the title and the way it reads, confused about why a teacher would do this. But now it makes sense.
