Get Ready to Feel Appreciated! 5 Teacher Appreciation Deals for 2019

Teacher Appreciation Week

Nobody gets into the field of teaching for the teacher discounts and academic pricing. Great teachers want to connect with their students, inspire young minds, and provide encouragement. Still, everybody likes to feel appreciated, and who is going to say no to a discount?

Teacher Appreciation Week is a great opportunity for principals, staff, parents, and others to thank educators for the difference they make in the lives of students. However, school communities aren't the only ones who want to express their gratitude for everything teachers do day in and day out. Each year, more and more companies are finding ways to recognize educators for their hard work.

This year, these five businesses are celebrating Teacher Appreciation throughout the month of May with special deals that are only available to teachers. Some of these companies are even going above and beyond and honoring teachers all year round.

  1. Barnes & Noble:
    When you think of Barnes & Noble, you probably think of the storefront in the mall or the chain's bookstore down the street. But Barnes & Noble is also the largest online bookseller. You can find any title you want on their site, plus a wide variety of games, toys, music, and movies. They're also a great resource for teachers. Did you know you can organize a Barnes & Noble bookfair at your school as a fundraiser? They also have textbooks and training materials. When you join their B&N Educators program, you get a 20% discount on classroom purchases. You can also save 25% during educator appreciation events throughout the year (like during Teacher Appreciation Month!)
  2. Costco:
    If you haven't joined Costco yet, it's time to take the plunge. There are lots of reasons to join. And while it's not a great idea to go to a grocery store hungry, in the case of Costco, insiders will tell you it's actually a good strategy. You want to have plenty of room for the unlimited free samples and the $1.50 hot dog/soda combo. You can also buy more than just groceries and household supplies: Costco sells bulk movie tickets, electronics, furniture and even vacation packages. As a special thank-you, teachers who join Costco as a new member receive $60 worth of coupons for free products and other great savings.
  3. P.volve:
    After a full day of teaching classes, working on lesson plans, and grading papers, who has time to go to the gym? If you join P.volve's monthly streaming service, you'll never have to leave your home again to work fitness into your routine! You'll have access to hundreds of on-demand workouts and classes at your fingertips, any time of the day or night. If it's been awhile since you've hit the gym, P.volve even has a two-week starter program to help you get going. The trainers at P.volve don't believe that exercise has to be painful, grueling, or high-impact to be effective. They have science-backed routines to help you reach your fitness goals safely. To show their appreciation for teachers, and their dedication to helping you stay healthy and strong, P.volve is offering an exclusive educator's discount of $20 off their monthly streaming service. You can also purchase P.volve's equipment and accessories for 20% off with your teacher discount. Start your new fitness routine today.
  4. Dooney & Bourke:
    There are things in life you need, and there are things in life you want. For example, you might need a new bag to tote ungraded papers and books to and from the classroom, and you really want a backpack from Dooney & Bourke. Dooney & Bourke wants you to have both. To support hardworking teachers, Dooney & Bourke is happy to offer you 15% off handbags, accessories, and more. The brand may be best known for their luxurious leather handbags, but they also carry wallets, luggage tags, dog collars, cosmetic cases, shoes, and tons of other items. You can even show your school spirit by sporting a bag from the collegiate shop. It's time to invest in a bag that will last you a lifetime.
  5. Headspace:
    Teaching is a stressful job. You need to take care of yourself so that you can take care of your students. That's where Headspace comes in. Headspace is a guided meditation app. Meditation has been proven to help practitioners feel calmer, sleep better, and improve their relationships with family, friends, and co-workers. It can even lower your blood pressure and increase focus. All it takes is 10 minutes a day, 3 times a week to make a big difference. One recent study found that only 10 days of using Headspace can decrease your stress by 14%. Headspace has a new plan that is especially for educators, so now teachers can get this popular meditation app for only $12/year. Find your happy place with the Headspace meditation app.

This Teacher Appreciation Week, don't forget to thank yourself for all the hard work you do. Maybe it's time to invest in yourself by setting new fitness goals or learning how to be more mindful. Maybe you decide to treat yourself to a cute handbag, a pizza from Costco, and a new book by your favorite author. Go out to dinner. Buy yourself some flowers. Binge-watch a guilty pleasure. You deserve it.

No matter how you celebrate, just know that there are parents, co-workers, students, and even retailers who see how hard you work every day, and we appreciate you. Thanks for everything you do.
