Teacher Discounts

Jul 10, 2015 | Teacher Wisdom | 67 comments

Teacher discounts are just one of the many perks of being a teacher!  As a frugal teacher, I have learned to ask over the years, “Do you offer a teacher discount?”  (I actually think my husband asks more than I do!)  So I though it was time to put all those teacher discounts in one place so you too can cash in on the savings!

Teacher Discounts

The programs listed below are simple, available to teachers only, and don’t seem to expire.  It is a dedicated list of educator programs and not just coupon codes or programs for everyone.  Oh – and they are not discounts for your school but discounts for you personally (most just require a school ID)!

Office Supply Discounts

The Organization Store – Email program with special discounts throughout the year just for teachers.

Staples – Earn up to 10% in Rewards on purchases of school supplies.

FedEx – 15% off most products and services.

Craft Store Discounts

JoAnne Fabrics and Crafts – Save 15% off your every purchase.

Michaels – 15% off your entire purchase every day.

Technology Discounts

Apple – Offers special programs and discounts for teachers on specific products.  If you are in the market for technology, it is worth your time to check out the discounts there.

Bose – Save up to 15%. You must call and speak to someone to take advantage of this discount!

Other Discounts

New York Times – Receive a  special discount for teachers.  Follow the link for details.

Cell Phone Companies – Yup, if you tell them you are a teacher, you may get a discount on certain services and products.  (I have got a discount on our cell service for YEARS!)

Dollar Tree – Rumor has it if you say you are a teacher and show your ID that many Dollar Tree’s will give you 10% off.
