Recently a reader wrote in in response to one of our other master lists (birthday freebies | kids eat free) asking if we could do one for teacher discounts. I’m so glad she asked, because I don’t know that I would have thought to do it, but as I started looking around, I found some really surprising and helpful places where being a teacher can get you a significant discount on all kinds of things. I’m going to try to keep this list updated, and please let me know how I can add to this list of teacher discounts if I missed something!
Just a few things I want to note. First, all of these discounts are subject to change at any time. In researching this, I found several supposed discounts, but when I dug deeper, realized that the program had been discontinued or was no longer in effect. All of these were verified at the time of this post, but they can change. Also, some of these discounts do require you to enroll in a program and provide proof of your teacher ID or something similar. The links below should take you to the place where you need to sign up, if applicable.
