    FYI- every Friday, through Sept. 24, teachers get 15% off including sale items. Just show teacher I.D.

    Thanks for posting. I love the dollar items for my prize box! And just about everything else in the store, of course! :)

    I wonder if they'd accept another form of proof...we have no teacher I.D. cards.

    I work at Michaels and we only give 10%. Check your local store, because it must be different.

    JustMe- at my store, you have to have a picture ID card. But, all districts in my area have them. So, I guess, call your local store. I get an unbelievable number of people trying to get the discount on their everyday stuff (like flowers) saying they are a substitute or they teach Sunday School.

    Speaking of picture IDs- I lost mine 2.5 years ago. I REALLY need to go get a new one..... I always miss out on things because I lost it!

    I've never even been in a school with picture IDs, so hopefully they'll accept something else...I'll have to check into that and the discount amount.

    I've used a paystub before for something, so maybe?

    I can just show them the look! :)

    Excellent!! I need to start collecting their 40% off coupons-I want to do reflective portfolios for the class this year using 12x12 scrapbooks and will need that coupon to make it happen on budget... I wonder if this is on top of the coupon? ;) Oh, wait! Don't they sometimes have scrapbook SALES??

    giraffe-does your store give out the 10% all the time?? Like Joanne's?? Because mine always says no discount for teachers.

    Man Jem, why did you have to go and post what's for sale? I'd love to buy just about all of that but I'm so broke! I'd especially love the photo boxes for school and for home. I guess I'll be doing shoe boxes covered with wrapping paper. At least I have pretty wrapping paper! My Michael's here always tells me that they don't do teacher discounts.

    I REALLY need to get a school ID.

    The past 2 years I've missed the beginning of the school year. This year, there is nothing on the horizon to keep me away; it should be so very much calmer.

    And I'll have time to get that ID and cash in on the deals!!!

    My district does not do ID cards. For any business that asks for one, I offer my latest paystub or my Ohio Education Association membership card; they always will accept one or the other.

    Nope :( But we DO honor your teacher card from other stores. No JoAnn's around here ( :( ) but we will take AC Moore's teacher card.

    And Scrapbooks go on sale quite often :)
