Target Offers Teacher’s Discount Program, Starting July 13th

It’s never too early to start prepping for the new school year, especially for teachers, and Target is offering a weeklong discount program to help make those dollars stretch when it comes to the classroom.

Starting July 13th, according to USA Today, Target will be offering teachers 15 percent off on select items, an initiative they are rolling out for the second year in a row now. According to Senior VP & General Merchandise Manager of Apparel, Accessories & Home, Jill Sando, last year’s response to the teacher’s discount was “phenomenal”, and saved teachers millions when it came to in-classroom items needed.

This year, Target will be offering school supplies (plus essentials like disinfecting wipes, food storage bags, as well as clothing and accessories for adults), and it has added Bullseye’s Playground and Pillowfort furniture items to the discount list.

It’s important to note that the company has partnered up with a third-party service (SheerID) to help with verification and eligibility. Teachers who want to take advantage of this 15 percent off discount need to first sign up for a coupon, valid online and in stores from July 13 to 20, which can be found at

While the discount targets (pun-intended) teachers in grades K-12, the company is also extending these sayings to early childhood learning centers, daycare centers, as well as teachers and parents that homeschool. Verification via ID can be done online or in-store, and those who do choose the online option will have a coupon emailed to them.

So, what items are included in the discount?

All supplies related to school: pencils, pens, crayons, folders, notebooks, binders, colored pencils, markers, glue, classroom storage, and scissors.

“Essential” supplies: facial tissue, disinfecting wipes, food storage bags, hand sanitizer.
Pillowfort furniture.

Bullseye’s Playground.

Women’s and men’s apparel and accessories, including basics, shoes, and performance.
It’s important to note that exclusions include: backpacks, electronics, lunch bags, swim, trial & travel size items, sleepwear, clearance, Fan Central, items sold and shipped by Target + TM Partners, as well as Levi’s Red Tab.

Happy summer and happy shopping to all those teachers out there, courtesy of Target!
