    I wonder if homeschool teachers count??

    Where in the store are these events located?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I don’t think so as the site didn’t have much info and other news sources stated that you had to bring your school ID or show your school email address.

    • Heather

      I just went and I am a homeschool teacher and I brought proof and they let me get the goody bag.

  2. Shannon

    I wonder if this will be like the baby event where the employees had no idea about it!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I sure hope this one goes more smoothly! You could always call in to your location to be certain they are participating! Hope that helps!

  3. Katie

    I’m hoping they will at least get the teachers event right b/c the “baby event” in my area was laughable.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! SO sorry to hear about that, Katie!

  4. Dana

    Don’t look like too many stores are participating. None near me are. And the free bag is for the first 300 in the store only

    • Dana

      omg… can’t edit my post. *doesn’t.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Bummer! Thanks for taking the time to comment, Dana! It doesn’t look like my store is participating in this one either.

  5. Jen

    If you are a member of HSLDA you have a card that nearly everywhere accepts as a teacher ID.

    This is so great! We need all the supplies when can get! It makes our student’s education so much more enjoyable! Thanks!!!

    • Liza (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome! Hope you’re able to stop by your local event! 🙂

  7. Grad student life

    Does anyone know if there is a grade limit? I’m a grad student on a teaching scholarship, so I teach undergrad classes to get my tuition down. The supplies would be helpful b/c I would have to less to buy for my classroom. Being a student and a teacher makes money tight.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! I don’t find a grade limit listed. You could always call in to your location to be certain! Hope that helps!

  8. Regina Dodd

    Does it include teacher assistants?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I don’t find anything on that in the details. Be sure to call in to your store to be sure on how they are honoring the event!

  9. Colleen Flathers

    Would be nice if the Walmart in my area actually participated in this or cared about their customers.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      DARN! Sorry to hear about that, Colleen! My store is not on the list for this event either. Is there another nearby Walmart that may be having it, that you could shop at? Hope that helps!

  10. Marysol

    Is this Teacher’s Promo apply in Walmarts at MEXICO ? Is this hapoening on July 13, here in Monterrey ,Mexico???? Tks a lot !

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Marysol! Be sure to click through the link above to find if your store is participating. You could also call in to your location. Hoping that helps!

  11. Jeremiah2911

    This sounds awesome but disappointed in the locations offered. While I would have been nicely surprised if my OR Coast Walmart had one, you would think of all the Walmart’s in Portland there would be more than one location there too!

  12. PatriciA Johnson

    This was a disappointment. And false advertisement. I was there before 1230. There are 4 items in the bag..a pair of scissors, a 4 pack of dry erase markers, one pen and one marker

    • Amani

      Thanks for the heads up. I will skip this event.

    • PL

      This was not worth leaving the house! My bag only had 2 coupons, 2 flyers, a ruler, one pen, and one marker. This was not worth the trip. I hope other teachers get better bags. 🙁

    • angelamuelleracebedo

      I got one pen, one highlighter, and a ruler. Your bag must have been the “deluxe” bag.
      I was there at 12:05

    • Tabatha

      I got five different kinds of pens(one of each), ruler, and a sample of post its.

  13. Jackie

    My sister in law just went and was there before start time. Her “swag bag” consisted of flyers and coupons. And only like 5 of them at that. I would post a picture if I could. Disappointing. I guess the contents are dependent on what the location wants to do?? Did any of y’all get real “stuff”?

  14. Blyth Swartsfager

    I hope no one rearranged their day for this it was a waste of my time. Blue shopping bag a 79 cent ruler. A few coupons to buy stuff in their store. Cake and ice cream. I shared this with fellow teachers. I felt duped.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh darn! I’m so sorry to hear that Blyth Swarsfager!

  15. Iris

    I just went not really worth the trip. Disappointing, lot’s of coupons. false advertising. I am glad I had shopping to do otherwise it would have been a waist of time.

  16. Jeremy

    I agree with everyone. Complete waste of time and disappointment. I got a cheap rules and like 2-3 pens.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Wow, I’m so sad! I was hoping this would be great. Thanks so much for letting us know, Jeremy!

  17. Cecilia

    It was a big slap on the face for teachers ! The swag bag contained one ☝️ pen . The treats was a sample size cake ( inside those little ketchup cups) . And the activity was one ☝️ box of legos to share.

  18. Barbara

    Sadly, it was a disappointment! I received a Walmart bag, Walmart koozie, one ruler, a few pens, and some coupons. I used some of the coupons so that was nice. The promotion of this was huge………the reality not so much.
