Teachers Receive 25% off Classroom Supplies during Nationwide
Event, August 1-3
FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 28, 2014--
Staples is helping teachers with a Teacher Appreciation Event all
weekend long August 1st through August 3rd at
store locations nationwide. Most teachers spend more than $400 of their
own money each year on supplies and materials for their classrooms. The
Staples Teacher Appreciation Event will help teachers get the supplies
their classrooms need such as pencils, glue sticks, tissues, art
supplies, and more for less.
“We know how hard teachers work to educate our children, and we want to
make great savings happen as they get their classrooms ready for the new
school year,” said Alison Corcoran, senior vice president, stores and
online marketing, Staples. “Dedicated educators, who spend their own
money on supplies, can find everything that they need in one stop at
Staples and make more happen for less.”
Teachers enrolled in Staples Teacher Rewards program will receive a
coupon for 25 percent off any purchase of $10 or more that can be
redeemed during the Teacher Appreciation Event, August 1-3. During the
event, teachers will also receive a free academic “Calendar of Savings”
with teacher-specific offers each month so they can save all year long.
Educators who are not currently Teacher Rewards members can sign up at
any Staples store, August 1-3, and receive 25 percent back in rewards
during this special Teacher Appreciation event. The special savings
offer – exclusive to teachers – excludes technology. Exclusions apply,
see store for details.
To continue to help educators throughout the school year, the Staples
Teachers Rewards program gives educators 5 percent back in Rewards on
everything, including technology and services, plus an additional 5
percent back in Rewards on teaching and art supplies. In addition,
teachers get free shipping on every Staples.com order with no minimum
purchase required and no limit to the Rewards teachers can earn. Teacher
Rewards members can also take advantage of opportunities to earn extra
Rewards on certain products throughout the year. They can earn $2 back
in Rewards for every ink or toner cartridge that they recycle when
they've spent $30 on ink or toner over the previous 180 days. To learn
