Get Schooled on the Best Retailers for Teacher and Educator Discounts

School is back in session for most of us and I think all of us are so grateful for our educators now more than ever. At Dallas Moms we love to introduce you to freebies and discounts like our Kids Eat Free list. Teachers and educators work hard, often spending their own resources, to help educate our kids. I know this all too well as I’m married to one. He loves a good deal, too! Luckily there are quite a few retailers who provide educator discounts.

I won’t be able to cover them all but here are a few of my favorite brands that you’ll want to make sure to look into if you are an educator and if you’re not, please share them with your educator friends! And always pay attention, typically in May, to teacher appreciation week for discounts at Chipotle, Hat Creek and many others that provide discounts in that time frame. Many of these retailers below also offer “hero discounts” to medical professionals, first responders, and many times to students as well.
Take a look at the links before you purchase as you may be required to sign up with your school email, present documentation or need to bring your educator ID with you to the store. Enjoy some savings with these spots that offer teacher and educator discounts!
