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. Read on to find out the best places to get teacher discounts.

That’s a lot of money, especially 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, which can help cut down on their out-of-pocket expenses.
