    Wow thanks! I didn’t know educators get insurance discounts and we have liberty mutual!

  2. Ms. Bailey

    You can get an alumni discount too for Liberty Mutual. Other retailers who give out discounts are Staples, B& N bookstore, The Container Store & possibly Dollar General or Dollar Tree. I saw signs in the window for the dollar stores offering discounts but have never asked about their programs. Lots of restaurants hosts teacher appreciation days throughout the year such as CFA.

        They offered teacher appreciation week in July and they honor tax exemptions for educators.

    I’m offering a teacher discount too! I have a polish/gel hybrid product that is brand new! I’m giving $20 off to any teacher who gets the curing lamp and one bottle! It applies like polish but stays like gel! Super easy with no base or top coat! You just soak your nails for 2 minutes and it bubbles off. I’d love to extend this discount to my coupon friends too! Please message me if you would like more information!

  15. Dani

    Could you give more information about the verizon wireless? Has anyone done this that can advise me on the process?

    • LeeAnna

      Go into your Verizon store with your Id they applied the discount off of that for me along with my email address

  16. Ms Bailey

    Your local teacher association should offer you discounts to most major attractions & provide you with a list of codes to get a discount at the movies, museums, hotels, car rental co., & insurance companies- life, health & dental!!! Plus you can get a huge discount on tuition at major universities (50-60 %)!!!

  17. Jodi Beckham

    Forever21 offers a 15 % discount to teachers as well as students. My store said they just started this discount this week!

  18. CJ

    I wish AC Moore would keep a record of my teacher ID card on file (with my rewards card) because my school collects the teacher IDs in June and we don’t get hem back until
    September….so when we do all of our back to school shopping we don’t have it to get discounts.

    • Lo

      Make a copy? Get a letter from your school/district/ principal? A pic of you and your badge? Just suggestions cuz I’d hate to miss a discount.

  19. LB

    Jimmy Johns offers a 5% teacher discount and Columbia stores offer at 15% discount for teachers also!
