Note: This story was published in 2014.
Walmart announced this week a new discount program for teachers purchasing school supplies.
The retail giant announced Teacher Appreciation Week will be held July 25-31. Teachers will receive a 10-percent discount/rebate on classroom supplies purchased during that week.
Here’s how it works:
– Teachers shop at Walmart for classroom supplies
– Teachers can visit www.walmart.com/teachers by August 15 and register their receipts
– 10 percent savings on eligible items from select departments will be delivered on an eGift card via email
“On average, teachers around the country spend about $1,000 readying their classrooms, and half of that comes from reaching into their own wallets to make sure students have what they need,” Walmart executive vice president Steve Bratspies said in a statement.
The deal does not apply to Walmart.com purchases. For complete terms and conditions, visit www.walmart.com/teachers.
