In previous years, the discount was 15% off and it was only valid on school & classroom supplies. The Circle offer can be used at your local Target or online at Target.com. If you are not a Circle member, it is free to join. 

To get this deal, you’ll need to apply for verification and the Circle offer will automatically show up in your app when it’s is valid and you can load it when you are ready to use it.

  • Teachers verify status HERE
  • Once verified, and the circle offer will be available in the app and you can save the teacher savings Circle offer 
  • Discount will be automatically applied at checkout at Target.com or use coupon found in wallet in Target app for in-store use.

One of the top questions we receive is “who is eligible for this discount?” Here are the personnel that will qualify for the 20% off discount:

  • Teachers, staff, and faculty employed by K-12 schools and colleges/universities in the United States.
  • Daycare center and early childhood learning center teachers.
  • Home school teachers.

It’s super exciting that the coupon extends beyond school supplies and is valid on your storewide purchase.  I’m wishing I was a teacher!   Happy shopping all you educators!

Important note!  This coupon is valid for one use ONLY!  Make sure you load the Circle offer just before you do your planned shopping trip, you don’t want to load the offer and have it apply to a small shopping trip.

    1. Same. It said give it twenty minutes. Still nothing. Maybe the system is overwhelmed? I was going to run out today, but I don’t know if that will happen…

    2. Once you are verified it will give you access to the Circle offer and then you can add it to your cart. There is no email coupon or code

  1. Why can’t they just ask for teacher id like EVERYONE else? Hit the dollar store and michaels instead.

    1. I’m a new teacher and I don’t have my teacher ID yet! Or for those teachers that lost their ID. It takes a few hours to ge the code. Just wait.

    1. I was super sad that I bought 40$ worth in the dollar bins, and the coupon did not apply to any of if. It was all teacher items too.

  2. I had to call their 800 number because after 4 hours I still didn’t have mine. Less than 20 minuets later I had it.

  3. I waited 20 min. and nothing so I did it again. After about 4 hours I got them. The employees at the Target near me knew nothing about the promo.

  4. I,would like the teacher discount code I have a credit,card and debit card to show my employment .I can not find my board of education teacher’s I.D card noe. My board of education I.D number is 615777.

  5. I registerd my husband through my Circle (he is a NYC DOE school teacher and I buy his supplies). I uploaded his NYC DOE ID card and it verified in less then 2 minutes. The card was issued in 2004 but it worked (and we are legit).

  6. I applied for the coupon last year as a homeschool. We sent in our notarized affidavit and had no problem getting the coupon. This year I sent in the same form for 2020, notarized and they will not accept it. It is frustrating to say the least.

  7. I hate how preschool and PreK teachers are NEVER included in discounts like these. So disappointing.

  8. The coupon made it sound like it would apply toward everything school supplies in your entire cart. I had tons of supplies and the coupon only took $5.00 off one item. Major scam. I even asked the checkout and they said read the fine print, one item. I spent $199.00 and it went down to $195.00. Big savings for teachers Target…Boo

    1. The coupon is 15% off one purchase (not one item) of qualifying items, I would take your receipt to customer service, hopefully they can fix it for you. There was obviously an error.

  9. I bought 7 items online and none of the items qualified for the discount. Not a single one. I contacted customer service and they told me none of the items qualified because I bought from their partner stores. I have not talked with any teacher friends yet who have stated the discount was worth shopping at Target. 🙁

  10. This is how I got the teacher discount.

    Log in to your account.
    Go to “Target Circle” on the upper right corner.
    Click “Offers”.
    You will see the “20% Teacher Exclusive”.
    Click the “+save offer”. It will automatically apply the discount at checkout.
