There aren't many tangible perks to being a teacher. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love my job, but I definitely didn't go into this field to make money or become famous.
However, many places do appreciate teachers in big ways including some of my favorites. And, yes, I understand that not all of my readers are teachers, but I do want to encourage you to continue reading this post because some of these discounts work for military as well. Or you may know a teacher or military member that might benefit from this post.
Lastly, please keep reading because any business that is willing to reward those hard working, under paid individuals deserves your patronage as well. Don't you agree?
So, here are some awesome stores that rock a good discount:
Ann Taylor Loft
(15% off everything & sign-up discount)
(15% off everything even sale)
These are not all of the stores that provide a discount for teachers/military, but they are some of my favorites. Many hotels, museums, zoos, and restaurants (like Pizza Hut) also provide discounts. I've also asked at my local Joe's Outlet for a teacher discount and even though they typically don't provide one, they did give me 15% off my denim purchase.
It doesn't hurt to ask.
Many times, all you have to do is ask to get a better deal on the products you love.
