It occurred to me that many of the discounts that I have found recently were, for some reason, secrets.  As a new teacher, I can use all of the help I can get, so I'm going to post the list that I know of here and hope that it helps other financially drained educators.  If you know of any that I have missed, please share!

  1. Adopt a Classroom - You can register your class for adoption at www.adoptaclassroom.com.  If adopted, your class gets $500 to spend on school supplies at the teacher's discretion.
  2. Donor's Choice - At donorschoose.org, you can submit informal grants proposals that are then posted for donors to look over.  If you're lucky, you can get your project funded.
  3. Teacher Cards - I ALWAYS ask if the store that I am shopping in gives an educator's discount.  I have gotten money off at apple.com, Barnes and Noble, Staples, Office Depot, Office Maxx, and Jo-Ann's so far.
  4. Tax Exempt - I don't know about elsewhere, but in NY, if you know the phone number of your school and you ask, many stores can look up your tax exempt id nimber.  At a lot of places this is in addition to your teacher's discount.
  5. AFT, UFT, NYC DOE, and NYSUT - check your professional organization websites every so often, they have loads of great discounts!
  6. You can register at crayola.com and be sent freebies and coupons in the mail.
