Give back to your kids’ teachers by taking advantage of Staples® Classroom Rewards to show appreciation to hardworking educators. This program runs throughout the year and allows parents to gift 5 percent of their total purchases to eligible teachers of their choice.
Make Back-to-School Shopping Rewarding Delight your kids and their teachers with your purchases throughout the year. Make your spending go the extra mile by taking part in the Staples Classroom Rewards program. This program ensures that a cut of the receipt amount goes to a deserving teacher with every purchase placed during the offer period. Qualifying items at Staples extend beyond school supplies. Parents can also contribute to teachers’ rewards accounts by purchasing cleaning supplies, tissues, electronics, and essential accessories as well as food, snacks, and water for their kids. Participating parents must visit the Classroom Rewards page on the Staples website to make their purchases count. From the Parents section, they can then add their receipts and select the teachers they’d like to support.
A Teacher’s Reward Is at Staples To be eligible to earn from parents’ purchases, teachers must register for the Staples Classroom Rewards program. They can enroll on the program’s page on Staples using their rewards member number. Staples starts off the giving by gifting teachers $5 upon enrollment that’s directly added to their classroom rewards account. Teachers can receive up to $250 in rewards from qualifying purchases each quarter. They can also track their earnings during the offer period from their Classroom Rewards pages.
Can Parents Reward Multiple Teachers? Yes. However, they cannot split the reward earnings from a single receipt. Each submitted receipt only applies to one eligible teacher. On the other hand, parents can submit as many qualifying receipts as they want during the offer period. Each receipt may go toward rewarding a different teacher. Parents can also give their receipts to their child’s teacher and have the teacher enter it into the database.
