Staples lets parents thank a teacher
A new online Staples promotion targets grateful parents of school-aged children.
Running through Sept. 15, 2019, Staples Classroom Rewards enables parents to contribute 5% of their in-store and online back-to-school purchases to a teacher or school of their choice. Teachers and/or schools can enroll at Staples.com/classroomrewards, earning $5 for joining.
Parents can then visit the classroom rewards website, select their child’s teacher’s name or school, and enter their receipt number and purchase amount. Staples then gives 5% of that purchase back in Staples Rewards loyalty credit to the teacher or school, up to 250 dollars.
In addition to Classroom Rewards, Staples will host community shopping events, an opportunity for parents, teachers and students to come together to shop, save, and kick off the school year together in a local Staples store. Each store will host its own community shopping night during the season, with dates to be announced next month.
“We know that every year teachers spend nearly 500 dollars of their own money on classroom supplies and we are excited to help give back a portion of that expense,” said Mike Motz, Staples US Retail CEO. “This upcoming back to school season, in addition to the assortment and value customers expect at Staples, we are now bringing together teachers, parents and students, through a program where everyone is rewarded. Every time parents check out at Staples, they can feel confident that not only their child has the tools for a successful school year, but so does the teacher.”
