Business Giveaways for Teacher Appreciation

11 years 7 months ago #157268 by Danielle
Hi All,

Just wondering if any of you have found any local or national businesses that offer give-a-ways or discounts for Teachers during Teacher Appreciation Day or week? I've only been able to locate 3 so far and would like to post a list for our teachers. Thought this would be a good place to get and share ideas. Here are the 3 I've found. (p.s. Our school is in NJ)

Cosi cafe - Free Apple Crunch salad with teacher ID on May 3rd
Village Pourhouse (Hoboken) - Free Stoli Apple Martini and 20% off bill on May 3rd
Kilkenny House Restaurant & Pub (Crandford) -10% discount on bill

Thanks in Advance for sharing!

Office Depot used to host a Teacher Appreciation Breakfast. You might check with your local store. (But I'm not sure it was in May with the national observance. Might have been beginning of school. In fact, now that I think of it - I'm sure it was late summer and mostof the office supply places have events then.)

The How Does She? blog/email has some "printables" for Teacher Appreciation - a pennant and some note cards. But you need to join their mailing list to get them. Not so much FOR the teacher as for those organizing gifts/celebrations.

Oddly enough a few of the things I saw posted this year were earlier in the spring. Sea World (CA) had a free 2011 fun card, but the offer expired 4/30. There were some free admission at museums for Teachers in April. Not sure why they wouldn't have these offers run through the national Teacher Appreciation week.

Febreze had a contest going where you nominate a favorite teacher (150 word essay). Aside from the contest, each entry would get two free samples -one for themself and one for the teacher. It was supposed to go through this week, but they had such overwhelming response, they are no longer giving the samples. (Still taking essays for the $5000 prize.)

Danielle- What a nice idea!

Thanks JHB for your pointers.

Here's a link to Office Depot Breakfast:

Ann Taylor Loft and Barnes & Noble have on-going teacher appreciation promotions.

The Febreze give-away has a flyer that you download, copy and send home to families to rally the troops to vote for teachers at your school.
