Teachers, mark your calendars: Target is bringing back its Teacher Prep Event July 17-Sept.10! The annual sale gives teachers a discount of 15% off select classroom supplies and essentials they so desperately need and purchase out of pocket. The best news? It runs six weeks longer than last year which means more time to save!

The discount applies to all K-12 teachers, homeschool teachers, educators at daycare centers and early childhood learning centers, university and college professors, and teachers at vocational, trade and technical schools. Like the last few years, the discount is offered through the company’s loyalty program, Target Circle, and teachers will need to submit proof of eligibility to take advantage of the savings.


This year is also bringing a new offer: college students can use Target Circle to save on their own back-to-school needs! From Jul. 3-Sept. 3, enrollees can snag 20% off a one-time purchase when they verify their college status.

“We know the back-to-school season signals an important milestone for millions of families across the country – and we’re here to help by introducing even more ways for guests to save and find everything they need all in one convenient location,” says Jill Sando, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, Target.

With thousands of items in Target’s back-to-school collection under $10, and prices starting under $1, there are great deals to be had for teachers—and families. If you have kids heading back to school or college, head to Target for school supplies, backpacks, clothes, art supplies, college décor and more. Target has even expanded its adaptive collection of clothes and backpacks, which makes the bullseye retailer a one-stop shop for everyone this year.
