  1. Jackie

    What kind of documentation can a home schooling parent have? We will be doing homeschooling this year and any help we can get will be greatly appreciate 😊

    • HBee

      Hi Jackie, l’m be starting my 13th year of homeschooling this year. I belong to the HSLDA (Homeschool Legal Defense Assoc.) and I show them my card for discounts, but perhaps there is another local group that you have nearby that has a discount group number that you can use!

      • Chantel

        I live in Alaska and there are homeschool programs through the public schools here. If you are enrolled in the program then you get a teacher identification card. If your state has something similar you could probably get a card through them. With some of these businesses you may not even need the ID. With somewhere like a craft store you may just be able to talk to the cashier or manager nicely and they might honor the discount. That being said I have had the experience of a cashier being very rude at a Lowe’s once when trying to get the military veteran’s discount. I had left my mil ID at home in the reader but had an expired one in my wallet that I had previously lost and then found again. I showed her that and she was really not nice and acted like I was a criminal. She refused to give me the discount. I talked to the manager though and he put it through.

        • Debi J

          Some cashiers act like the money is coming out of their own pockets. If you are eligible or think you might be eligible for a discount, teacher or otherwise, escalate it up the chain. The stores often don’t adequately train the employees for discounts.

          With educational discounts, it’s not just teachers. If you work in education – anywhere – and you have an educational email address and/or an ID that shows a school, including universities, and colleges, you are eligible for the discount. I work in a University Library, and I use Staples, Michaels, Apple, Adobe Creative Cloud (please note that their discount for CC for $19.99 monthly only good for 1 year, and you’re charged $29.99 each month after). You can also get discounts with HP and other places. I always ask if there’s an education discount. (Something I’m going to miss after September this year when I retire.)

    • Becky08

      Our school district gives us a letter of all of the documentation we turn in (affidavit and goals) but I think every state might be different in their requirements. There are also websites homeschoolers can get IDs from that have worked for chipotle teacher appreciation days.

    • Katie

      I made an ID and submitted my former order from the scholastic teacher store and it worked.

  2. Chan

    I just contacted liberty mutual and they said they do not offer discounts for homeschool teachers. Anyone else have success please let me know and I will try again with another representative.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! Thanks for the feedback. I do see the teacher discount listed through the link above.

    • HBee

      Hi Chan, I had Liberty in the past, and they did honor my HSLDA (see comment above) group number for a discount. I cannot remember how much, because we no longer have them.

  3. Melanie Chiappini

    Zulily has a teacher discount too.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much! Good to know!

  4. Debi J

    Sleep Number has a 20% discount for educators. Saw it on their website.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you! We’ll look for that too!

  5. Lori

    Purple also has a teacher discount that you can use on top of sale prices. We bought mattress and 2 pillows on sale 20% off nd they gave us another 10% on top of that.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks for letting us know about that one, Lori! ❤️

  6. kelli-10

    Under Armour has a discount too.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the reminder about that one, kelli-10! 🥰
