Utilize these deals for classroom or leisure
Of course, you can turn to the California Teachers Association and their awesome benefits to score big on some of your favorite things, but if you’re looking for a little extra, take a look at some of our suggestions for unexpected savings!
For starters, register on ID.me. This website has tons of nationwide deals and discounts on anything from retail to entertainment. You can use your teacher credentials to get discounts on everything from Universal Studios Hollywood to apparel and eyeglasses. It only takes a few minutes to register and start saving!
Travel & attractions
Get out of town by taking advantage of hotel deals and rental car discounts. Hotels.com and Zipcar both offer great ways for teachers to save money while on the road. We have also found that if you call hotels, they may honor unadvertised discounts on a case-by-case basis.
The Natural History Museum, the Exploratorium, and the California Museum are just three of the museums in California that offer free admission for educators.
Costco memberships, Michaels, Reebok, Adidas, Sunglass Hut, the Loft, must we say more? Many retailers offer discounts to teachers just by a wave of the ID, for others, you may have to register ahead.
Stay current and creative
New York Times, HP, Apple and Adobe Creative Suite offer teacher discounts to keep you ahead of the game. Simply go to their websites and verify your employment to see the prices slash drastically.
