Target Is Having a Teacher Prep Event This Week and We’re Freaking Out

So long, money.

Target Teacher Prep Event

Sound the alarm bells! The rumors are true: Target is hosting a Teacher Prep Event that starts Sunday, July 15, and runs through Saturday, July 21. For the event, teachers will receive a 15% discount on select classroom supplies. BRB, off to spend all my money!

Rumors have been flying on social media about a possible teacher discount event happening at Target, and on July 12 Target officially confirmed via its @AskTarget Twitter account that the event is the real deal.

But there is a catch—you have to register to get the Target Teacher Prep Event coupon.

To participate in the event this weekend, teachers will need to visit to confirm their teacher status and receive their coupon. As of Thursday, July 12, the site was not live, but the @AskTarget account has said it will be on Sunday morning, and that registration will take less than 30 seconds.

Woohoo! What will you be buying at the Target Teacher Prep Event? Come and share in our WeAreTeachers Chat group on Facebook.

Plus, 11 Target discounts every teacher should know about and why you should never trust a teacher at Target.
