Educator Appreciation Days at Barnes and Noble and Borders

Barnes and Noble is also having an Educator Appreciation Week. Meanwhile, Borders has extended their discount through the end of today. You will probably need to show some sort of proof of educator status (homeschool newsletter, declaration of intent to homeschool, support group membership card, etc.). (You can read my original post about Borders’ Educator Appreciation Week here,).

Borders Celebrates Educator Appreciation Week Oct. 6-10


Homeschoolers Who Join the Borders Rewards Plus Program Will Receive a 25 Percent Discount Plus an Additional 10 Percent Off In-Store Purchases

Borders is celebrating educators for their important work in advancing families and communities with Educator Appreciation Week (Oct. 6-10) in Borders stores nationwide. During the event, Borders is giving educators a 25 percent discount off the list price of most items in store and an additional 10 percent discount if they become Borders Rewards Plus loyalty members. Members of the Rewards program accrue $5 in Borders Bucks for every $150 spent on qualifying purchases.

During Educator Appreciation Week, Borders will also provide a variety of activities for pre-school and K-12 current and retired teachers, professors, librarians and home schoolers. The activities, which vary by store, will include author signings, musical performances, raffles and more. The event also provides teachers with an opportunity to get a jump on holiday shopping or splurge on special items for themselves. The discounts can be combined on most items in the store — from books, music, movies, toys and classroom materials to coffee and stationery and gift items. Teachers can, of course, use the discounts on products in the Borders Teaching Zone section, which includes educational workbooks, curriculum development books, inspirational narratives as well as many non-book items such as stickers and classroom decor products.

Other stores, such as Lakeshore Learning, are rumored to offer educator discounts, but I was not able to verify this online. In addition, local, non-chain stores may offer discounts. It never hurts to ask.
