To receive your discount, simply provide your Educator Card and photo ID at the register. The name on the ID must match the name that you wrote on the back of the card during the enrollment process. Your discount is automatically applied to all eligible items.

How are the Educator discounts applied to my purchase?

The 20% Educator discount is off the publisher's list price. Educator discounts cannot be combined with other discounts or coupons, unless specifically noted. For example, a title with a publisher's list price of $25.00 will be discounted at 20% off to $20.00 for Educators. However, if the current Barnes & Noble Selling Price offers an equal or greater discount than the price with the Educator discount applied, then the Barnes & Noble Selling Price will apply instead of the Educator discount. (The Barnes & Noble Selling Price is the price before taxes and discounts are applied.)

Can anyone use my Educator Card to receive the discount in the store?

Your Educator Card is for your individual use only, and is non-transferable.

What if I don't have my Educator Card with me in the store? Can you look up my Educator number? Will I still get my discount?

Your Educator Card is the access to your benefits, and it is important that you carry it with you to receive your discounts in the store. If you happen to forget your Educator Card and have completed an Educator profile that includes your phone number, we can retrieve your Educator information in the store at checkout. The Bookseller will still need to verify your Photo ID against your personal information on record.

Can I combine my Member discount with my Educator discount in the same purchase?

You can choose to apply either your Membership discount or your Educator discount to your purchase, but you cannot apply both to the same order.
