Teachers must verify their status, email and ZIP code by visiting Target.com/teacherprep, which will go live staring July 15, Target said in a Tweet.

Calling all educators, you can get an extra 15 percent off of school supplies beginning Sunday, July 15th at Target.

Some teachers expressed concern that the deal is a scam, but Target confirmed the sale is real. The discount can be applied to supplies such as: pens, pencils, crayons, markers, classroom storage, organization, tissues, hand sanitizer, and more.


Although the announcement says teachers can cash in Sunday through July 21 when shopping in-store and online, few details were available Friday.

And it's a nationwide trend: A study released in May put the number of teachers around the country spending their own money on their classrooms at 94 percent. The average amount teachers said they spent without reimbursement was $479.
