KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) — Back-to-school season is especially costly this year, as inflation reached a 40-year high in June. To help teachers and students, some stores are trying to ease their burden with sales and discounts.
Kohl’s is giving educators and school staff a 25% discount for a limited time. The chain said this is the second year offering this discount in an effort to recognize educators for their work and dedication.
But those who want to take advantage need to act quickly. The discount is available to use in-store through Sunday, July 17.
Educators and school staff will need to present a valid ID to redeem the 25% savings.
Michaels offers teachers a 15% off entire purchase discount.
To qualify, teachers need to create a Michaels account, provide school information to become verified, and then follow the instructions to shop either online or in a store.
Target also plans to offer discounts to teachers, school staff and students.
The chain’s popular Teacher Prep Event begins Sunday, July 17 and will continue through Sept. 10. It gives teachers a 15% discount on school supplies.
All K-12 teachers, homeschool teachers, teachers working at daycare centers and early childhood learning centers, university or college professors and vocational/trade/technical schoolteachers with valid ID are eligible.
Target also plans to offer a one-time 20% discount for college students through Sept. 3. Some purchases are excluded.
