    Anyone having issues signing up? I log in and add my information but it’s not taking my school even though it showed up in the drop-down.

      I think you have to click on the name of the school after it pops up/auto fills. It’s a strange extra step. I had to try it a few times before it worked, but it seemed to eventually go through. HTH! 🙂

      Oh, let me tell you lol I have called target 3 days in a row to get an answer. They weren’t any help and kept tossing me around manager to manager, so what I did was choose the school closest to me, then upload my license. It worked!

    Hmm…I just tried to sign up as a homeschool teacher as we have opted to homeschool this year and it’s requesting that I submit a paystub or badge…

    • Rainessa

      Same here. I am not sure how to verify homeschool as we are opting for home schooling this year.

    • Jaydian

      Do you mean that you opted for distant/digital learning or homeschooling? Digital learning is when teachers prep and deliver curriculum and parents assist in helping their kids access that curriculum at home. Homeschooling is when you register yourself with the local board of education as taking on the responsibility of creating and implementing the delivery of content that is approved by the local board of education without a teacher. Are you homeschooling or helping your kids at home with digital learning? If it’s the latter, I don’t believe you will get approved for the discount because teachers are still creating your curriculum and you are being a responsible parent by helping when they need clarification.

    I was able to verify with a screenshot of my profile from my college’s website (I am an adjunct).
    No issues and it only took a few minutes.

    If you’re a VIPKID teacher, you can sign up with a picture of your six apple card.

    Hoping someone else can figure out how to get verified as a homeschooler! I’ve taught my kiddos for 15 years, and uploaded my Home Educator ID card. No such luck yet. 🙁 The website clearly states that homeschool teachers are permitted, and also has the option for you to choose home school as your school.

    They don’t seem to be very homeschooling friendly. I’ve been trying for three days to get verified. I’ve homeschooled for fourteen years, but they won’t accept my ID or verify. I don’t really need to shop there anyway. They pissed me off.
