Walmart announces discount program for teachers

Heads up, teachers!

Walmart has announced a new discount program for teachers purchasing school supplies.

Teacher Appreciation Week will be held July 25-31, according to the company website. Teachers will receive a 10-percent discount/rebate on classroom supplies purchased during that week.

How it works:

- Teachers shop at Walmart for classroom supplies
– Teachers can visit 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 purchases.
