    Am I the only one who didn't know that Michael's gives 10% off when you show a teacher ID? I knew that AC Moore did something similar... I was buying bulletin board borders tonight and was chatting with the cashier about school. She asked if I had my school ID on me and said teachers get 10% off. Very excited to learn this! :) :)

    I ask for teacher discounts everywhere! Lol! Usually they say no, but sometimes I've been pleasantly surprised!

    Can you also use their coupons with this discount? Anything I buy there I usually use their 40% off coupon.

    My Michael's did not let me use my teacher discount with store coupons :( I was pretty bummed with that.

    That is a bummer :( I've always been able to use as many as I have.

    Ooh, I finally got my new school ID, I hope it will work. It just has my name and the district, it doesn't specify the school or my position.

    My ID badge just says my name, the school's name and address and "Education" so at least they can't think I'm a janitor wanting a discount!

    You can use a coupon (40/50% off of one item) on an order with your teacher discount, as long as you have 2 or more items. (Not on a one item order.) An item can only be discounted via coupon/discount once. If you have a percentage off of your regular priced order coupon, you can use your coupon for off-sale items and your teacher discount for on sale items. If you have a percentage off of your order including sale items coupon, you have to choose- teacher discount or coupon.

    Also, they are only supposed to let you use one 40/50% off coupon per visit. Please don't ask for rule bending. Cashiers can (and have) gotten fired over letting people do separate orders. You saving a dollar or two is not worth someone's job.

    I was a customer service manager for Michaels from 2009-2012. I had to fire several cashiers for letting the policy be abused :( Corporate tracks their cashier numbers and I had no control. (They had been written up and warned previously, but the continued to do it. It was out of my hands.)

    Giraffe, that's very interesting. And sad for you. I've never asked for anything extra anywhere except as a "can I use this with this" sort of thing. I'm totally fine if they say no. I usually just have to tell them I'm a teacher. They never even ask to see my ID. That could be because I'm such a frequent flyer there :lol:

    You can discount an item once. If you had 10 items, you should be able to use a 40% off of one item for your most expensive, and your teacher discount on the remaining 9 items. See my post on page 1 for more details with other types of coupons. I was a manager at Michaels for three years, until 2012.

    Joann offers 15% off all purchases for teachers, too! All you need to do is register for their free program (you'll need a school/county ID or pay stub) and they'll give you a discount card. This 15% is even good for clearance!

    Depending on the cashier at my local Michaels they may or may not give me my discount if I don't have my id. And yes you have to have more then 1 item to use the 40% off coupon and your teacher discount.

    I've learned to keep my id with me at all times and to ask for a teacher discount.
