Between July 13 – July 20th, Target will be offering teachers a 15% discount on select school supplies to help get ready for the new school year. Horray for Target! Teachers often end up spending their own money to get their classrooms ready for learning. The ‘Teacher Prep Event‘ is only available to teachers who work in the US, including teachers in day care centers, early childhood learning centers, home schools, and more.
How to get the educator discount
In order to get your educator discount at Target, head over to ‘Teacher Prep Event” on Target’s website, which will redirect you to a third party website in order to confirm your eligibility. Simply enter the name of the school where you work, along with your name & your work email. You will then be asked to upload a copy of your ID, official letter or a pay stub. For home school teachers, upload a school district approval letter or a government stated document. Once verified, you’ll receive a coupon which you can use in store or online.
Make it 20% off
In addition to getting 15% discount, you’ll get an additional 5% off when you pay with either Target’s credit or Target’s debit card, which have awesome extra benefits that save shoppers money. Usually credit cards end up increasing debt, but Target’s card surprisingly helps your budget. Plus, you’ll get free shipping (shop from the comfort of your couch!)
