Target is helping teachers stretch their back-to-school budget on more than just supplies for their classrooms.
For the second consecutive year, Target will offer teachers a week long 15 percent-off discount on select items starting July 13, according to USA TODAY.
In addition to school supplies and essentials (which include things like disinfecting wipes and Ziploc bags), the discount will apply to adult clothing and accessories, Pillowfort furniture, and Bullseye’s Playground items.
How to sign up:
Target is working with third-party verification service SheerID to verify eligibility. Sign up for the coupon – valid July 13-20 in stores and online – at Target.com/teacherprep.
The discount is geared toward K-12 teachers, but Target will also offer the savings to teachers working at day care centers, early childhood learning centers and home schooling parents and teachers.
“We can take any document that ties your name and/or email address to an educational system” for verification, Target says in frequently asked questions. “Eligible guests who are not able to validate online can visit their local Target store and present their ID to the cashier for assistance.”
Other documents that can be submitted include a school ID card, letter of employment on school letterhead, current pay stub and official documents.
For teachers able to verify the information online, the coupon will be emailed.
