      • Christy

        Thank you for this list of exclusions. This helps!

        • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

          Yay! Glad to know it was helpful! You’re welcome! 🥰

  3. Kristi

    Does this apply to paraprofessional (1-1 Special Education) as well? I didn’t see it listed.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Kristi! I did find the details on eligibility! “Teachers, staff, and faculty employed by K-12 schools and colleges/universities in the United States. Daycare center and early childhood learning center teachers. Home school teachers.”
      You can find more in the fine print here.
      Just be sure to head here to verify your status. Hope this is helpful! 🥰

  4. Angela

    When I try to add the offer, it says “offer unavailable.” Any advice?

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      So sorry for the troubles, Angela! Were you able to verify your teacher status first?

      • Angela C Baerg

        Yes, it says I am verified!

        • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

          Hmm. Are you by chance on the app or on a mobile device? If so, you might switch over to a laptop or desktop browser or log out and back in to your account. I just clicked through and am able to save the offer to my Target account. If still having troubles, you might reach out to customer service at 1 (800) 440-0680. Hoping that one of these options does the trick for you!

          • Angela C Baerg


            • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

              You’re welcome! 🥰

    • Murielle

      When I go to settings, it doesn’t give me the option to verify. Is this perhaps only on the regular site and not mobile AP?’

      • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

        Hey Murielle! If you’re on the Target app, try going to “My Target” in the bottom right-hand corner, then clicking the gear icon for settings in the top right-hand corner. From there, there should be a “Teacher verification” option. ❤️

  5. Crystal

    I tried as a homeschool teacher as I homeschool my daughter, and there is no official paperwork that Michigan requires for you to have to homeschool with a homeschool name on it? Says I can try again, I read their fine print but there is nothing I have stating Im an official homeschool teacher, other than my classroom that’s in my dining room, curriculum bought etc. Has any other Homeschool Parent done this and what did you need to submit?

    • Jen

      I made a homeschool ID card with my pic and school name. Sent that and letter from school district that says we are homeschooling

      • Jen

        That was 3 years ago and I’m still verified

        • Crystal

          Thanks, Jen that was a good idea. Can I ask if the letter from your district is the one you sent saying you were pulling your child to homeschool? Or a different type of letter?

      • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks so much for sharing this helpful homeschool verification info! 🤗

  6. Debbie

    Hi, I am a teacher and would love the aqua Target bins that are pictured! However, my Target has deeper blue bins right now. I was wondering if the photo that is pictured is from this current year or last year. From my understanding, the green and aqua bins are last year’s models. TIA!

    • Alli (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Debbie! Those pictures are current (we took them in June) — so hopefully you’ll be able to find those Aqua bins!
