In Other Words… Stationery, Travel, and All Else that Matters

To all my Teacher Friends

I love my job. I love the work, I love the people, and I love working on a college campus.

Ever since my job as an Orientation Leader at Virginia Tech, I knew that I wanted to work at a university. The atmosphere at universities is contagious and AWESOME.

The students keep me young. No joke. I never wore revealing outfits to class (maybe because it was a bit chilly in Blacksburg OR maybe because I had to save those outfits for going out at night), but I have learned that wearing crop tops to class is all the rage now!  I justify my obsession with Lululemon with the fact that so many students wear Lulu. I mean if they can afford it (or their parents can), I CAN TOO!

I digress.

Honestly, the perks never end! Great hours, great co-workers, great benefits, seriously… great job!

One of the unexpected perks that I really enjoy are all the discounts! I have my staff ID and a college email address so I do partake in student/teacher discounts.

So for all of you teacher friends…here are some great places that offer Teacher Discounts! [DISCLAIMER – check with your local stores to ensure that these discounts apply there. I have taken advantage of these discounts before, but there is nothing to say the store may have changed their policies.]

  • Banana Republic – 10% off full-price, in-store purchases
  • Ben Franklin – 10% off entire in-store purchase on Tuesdays
  • Container Store – 10% off in-store purchases
  • Hancock Fabrics – 15% off in-store purchases
  • J Crew – 15% off full-price, in-store purchases.
    **The Factory Outlet seems to not accept this discount anymore – except if they happen to have a special promotion going on
  • Kate Spade – 15% off entire in-store purchase
    **I have gotten this discount accepted at Kate Spade Outlet stores as well
  • LOFT – 15% off full-price, in-store purchases

So take a night off from the gym and head to the shops!

Or still work out and get your shopping on later.  Either way – take advantage of these discounts – they are offered for you to use!  The holidays are right around the corner. Hopefully you can use some of these discounts to help you with your Christmas shopping!

Enjoy!
