Thank You, Teachers: Barnes & Noble Presents Back to School Educator Appreciation Days

In celebration of all that school teachers and administrators do for local communities, Barnes & Noble would like to do something extra for them in return—and just in time for back to school season.
Barnes & Noble offers pre-k through grade 12 educators 20% off school supplies all year round through our Barnes & Noble Educator Discount Card Program. But during our Educator Appreciation Days, which has an extended timeline this year and is kicking off on Saturday, July 20, we will have special discounts* at stores nationwide for all pre-K-12 public, private, and homeschool teachers and administrators, every Saturday and Sunday until September 15!
This includes the following weekends in 2019:

  • 7/20-7/21
  • 7/27-7/28
  • 8/3-8/4
  • 8/10-8/11
  • 8/17-8/18
  • 8/24-8/25
  • 8/31-9/1
  • 9/7-9/8
  • 9/14-9/15

The celebration includes 25% off most merchandise such as books, toys, and games, while supplies last.
“At Barnes & Noble, we recognize teachers and administrators for all their hard work year-round, and we are thrilled to announce even more Educator Appreciation Days ahead of the new school year,” said Tracy Vidakovich, Vice President, Business Development for Barnes & Noble. “This year, starting July 20 and running through September 15, we’ll celebrate teachers every weekend with 25% off most merchandise and special discounts that go above and beyond our usual Educator Program deals.”
These special offerings are:

  • 25% off list price on most books, gifts, music, DVDs, and toys and games for classroom use;
  • 10% off all Café consumables purchases; and
  • 10% off discount applied to price after instant rebate on select NOOK® devices, including: Samsung Galaxy Tab A NOOK 7”, Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK 8”, Samsung Galaxy Tab E NOOK 9.6”, as well as NOOK Glowlight 3 and NOOK Glowlight Plus.**

Teachers can take advantage of these special savings by applying for a Barnes & Noble Educator Discount Card. Forms are available in store, or teachers can enroll online.
Administrators and teachers may also inquire about Barnes & Noble’s partnership programs on bookfairs to help raise funds, while also hosting events throughout the school year to help make reading more fun and accessible for children and families across the country.
*Discount exclusions can be found in the Educator Program Terms and Conditions. Educators must present a valid Barnes & Noble Educator Discount Card to receive discounts in-store.
** There is a limit of five (5) NOOK devices per customer.
