    Will you be doing the teacher wish list post again this year?

  2. Lindsey

    Any idea if this will be a one time use code or if it can be used multiple times?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Great question! I did speak with customer service on this for you. They let me know that it will have a limit of one and that there will be more details available on the offer once the offer is live. Hope that helps! 💖

    Does anybody know how this works for homeschooling? I don’t have any forms or anything proving I teach my kids but I could really use this discount

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! I found these details about the event – “All K-12 teachers, homeschool teachers, teachers working at daycare centers and early childhood learning centers, university or college professors and vocational/trade/technical schoolteachers with valid identification are eligible.” Hoping this is helpful! 💞

    • bremoeller

      Yes I am a homeschool mom and was able to sign up and use it.

    • mommak

      You can create a Home Educator ID or depending on what your state requires for homeschooling; in our state we submit a Letter of Intent, and that was how I was verified.

  4. Alyson

    If you have verified in the past couple of years you are good. Mine says you only have to verify every 3 years.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh great! Thanks, Alyson! Good to know! 🙌💕

    How do you verify for homeschool? It says your full name and school, but when I try, it says invalid document. Anyone have any luck?

    • Julie

      Last year I used the homeschoolbuyersco-op website to make a free teacher ID. Then took a screenshot and sent it in to be verified.

    • mommak

      Homeschool is one of the school options and then for verification you can use the Home Educator ID someone already messaged or documents required by your state.

    I need help, I can’t find the option to get verified as a teacher. I went to my account then my settings but I don’t see it.

    • Valerie Chester

      You have to do it on Once you do it will appear on Cartwheel on your app.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! Be sure to try on a desktop if you don’t see it when using a mobile device. Hoping that does the trick!

    • Linda Garrett

    I went to Target yesterday to shop for school supplies. The aisles were mostly empty except for the most expensive folders and notebooks. They didn’t even have fine line markers in any brand or loose leaf notebook paper. The discount did apply to a bunch of stuff I got in the dollar spot.

  8. Sara

    I wish I knew about this over the weekend when we could’ve combined it with our state’s tax free weekend. My husband is the teacher but I have the target account. I wonder if he needs to create a target account or if it will work with his email address and my Target account?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Good question! You could give it a try OR double check with customer service. Hoping this is helpful!
