    I always go to Staples. I enjoy seeing teachers I know and I totally get excited about the colored paper clips and other giveaways.

    I've been to those appreciation days once and it was chaotic! It was fun, though.

    I used to always go. This year, I dunno. At Staples it sounds like you just get the bag plus a discount on whatever you can fit in the bag. I don't think that would be worth the trip for me. Oh well. It's still a nice thing for them to do.

    I don't think Staples get a lot of teachers attending their Teacher's Appreciation Days in Canada. This year it is going to run from August 17 - Sept. 7 and we will get 15% off.

    I used to feel like going to a few about every other year for a span of 5-6 yrs. I haven't felt like going the last 2-3 yrs & probably won't this time.

    Missed the ones in my area. I have been buying quite a bit at staples this year. The penny deals haven't been that great but I've gotten a lot of good deals on other stuff. Probably saved me $50-$60 which is always good.

    I have not been to any office supply sales at all this summer. I might go to the T-Appreciation Day. I am making a list of things I need and if any can be purchased there I might go. The description makes it seem like you get a bag and rewards back later. I wonder if you get any freebies in the bag? I don't particularly need another bag and having rewards dollars to spend will just stress me out later because I will probably remember to use the reward coupon the day it expires. ;)

    Anyone know how strict they are with signing up for the program/showing proof? I'm an educator (para) but not a teacher.. and I don't have any proof like ID (other than pay stubs I guess). I only use a few basic things for my job, but I end up buying a lot for the teaching I do for my credential program. Just spent a bunch on lamination and binding a couple weeks ago. :dizzy:

    Your pay stub should suffice.:)
