Teacher Discounts: 90+ Stores Offering Discounts for Teachers & Educators

We all agree that improving how we educate our next generation is the factor in continuing to effectively compete in a global economy. Teachers sacrifice a lot to help our children succeed in life, whether that means staying up all night grading papers, or spending their own money on school supplies. In fact, recent studies have shown that most teachers spend about $500 out of their own pockets every year on supplies for their students.

That's a lot of money on a teacher's salary, but we're here to help. We compiled a list of more than 90 discounts for teachers -- at bookstores, retail chains, school supply outlets and more -- that can help cut down on their out-of-pocket expenses. Feel free to share this list with all the teachers and educators in your life!
