OKLAHOMA CITY

Educator discount takes 25% off at Barnes & Noble

Barnes & Noble will offer discounts to teachers and school administrators for the next three weekends.

Educator Appreciation Days begins Saturday and ends the final weekend of January for public, private and homeschool educators and administrators.

Most in-store and online merchandise will be 25% off, including books, toys and games for classroom or personal use. Teachers and administrators can save 10% at the store café and on select tech tools.

Each of the three weekends, educators qualify for a free STEM and STEAM calendar and a free tall Starbucks coffee, hot or iced, at any Barnes & Noble Café.

Barnes & Noble will demonstrate a new lesson-planning product, Story Design, at 10 a.m. Jan. 25 to cap off Educator Appreciation Days this month.

The company offers its Educator Discount Card Program throughout the year for 20% off most in-store and online classroom purchases. Teachers and administrators must apply in their local store or download the Educator Application form online to get the discount card.

“Educator Appreciation Days are a wonderful way to start the year. We are so thrilled to once again offer these special discounts to educators,” said Tracy Vidakovich, vice president of business development for Barnes & Noble. “Barnes & Noble recognizes the important place that educators hold in our communities, and our Educator Appreciation Days are a small way for us to say, ‘thank you.’”
