The Best Teacher Discounts to Celebrate Back-to-School Season – GoodHousekeeping.com

Amazon/ Dagne Dover/ Toms/ Anthropologie

Think about it: If back-to-school season is expensive for parents of students, consider how much it costs teachers who have to restock their classroom, upgrade their electronics, and — if they're lucky — freshen up their closet. As a way to say "thank you" and "good luck," many major stores and online retailers offer considerable discounts to teachers during August and September. Even better: Some of these stores — Loft, J. Crew, Michaels, to name a few — continue these deals year-round because a teacher's stationary stash isn't going to replenish itself.

To qualify for a teacher, faculty, or school staff discount, most stores require a valid teacher ID, email ending with .edu, or both. So, just to be safe: Before you head out for your back-to-school shopping trip, check the requirements for each and every store on your list.
