Staples' Teacher Appreciation Weekend Aug. 1-3 offers discounts for classroom supplies

Jul 30, 2014

Staples is helping teachers with a Teacher Appreciation event all weekend long, Friday to Sunday, Aug. 1 to 3, 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 they need in one stop at Staples and make more happen for less.”

Teachers enrolled in the Staples Teacher Rewards program will receive a coupon for 25 percent off any purchase of $10 or more that can be redeemed Aug. 1 to 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 Aug. 1 to 3 and receive 25 percent back in rewards during this special 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.

Staples is teaming up with global pop music superstar Katy Perry to Make Roar Happen and support teachers during the back-to-school season. Staples is building on its long history of supporting teachers, students, and education by donating $1 million to DonorsChoose.org, a charity that has helped fund more than 450,000 classroom projects for teachers and impacted more than 11 million students.

Staples customers are invited to #MakeRoarHappen and help their local teachers by donating a dollar to DonorsChoose.org at their local Staples store or online at www.staples.com/makeroarhappen. Donations will be used to fund classroom projects in the community where the donation was made.

“Staples is proud to contribute to teachers’ efforts to ensure that their students succeed in the classroom,” said Corcoran. “By supporting teachers, we are all working toward building stronger communities.”
