I am always battling that I'm an SLP and not a teacher.
But when it is convenient, I must admit, I like to use teacher discounts.
There aren't many SLP discounts and we do work with children so WHY NOT!?
I will share with you my favorite places to whip out my school ID card!
I am a member of Lakeshore Learning's Teacher Club. I am fortunate to have one of their store locations within 30 minutes of my home/school. I get to save 15% off in store purchases and I get special offers in the mail and e-mail.
Office Depot has a rewards program for teachers. You can earn rewards points and get 10% back.
Staples also has a rewards program for teachers. I am constantly stopping there since there is one in the town I work in. I love getting my reward coupons in the mail! You get 5% back, free shipping, and recycled ink incentives (um HELLO! SLPs love ink!)
Michael's gives 15% off to teachers. Just show your ID when you check out! I am always going there for a quick art project supplies.
Barnes and Nobles gives 20% off for teachers. Just show your school ID to get a card!
LOFT loves teachers! Go in and show your ID for discounts or sign up online. You can get 15% off clothes for work and they also have teacher appreciation days for even more discounts! I have gotten great business suits for interviews there using this discount!
The Container Store has a discount program to help teachers stay organized! Sign up online and just show your ID for in store purchases.
FedEx has a national educators discount that gives 15% off!
And last but not least, I use my Verizon discount on my cell phone account! I keep the account for my family in my name and used my school ID when I opened the account for 19% off!
There are TONS others of stores and websites that cater to educators but these are my favorites and those that I have yet to have any difficulties using. Did I miss any that you love?
