Five Things Teachers Can Get for Free Year-Round!

October 5th is World Teachers’ Day and to celebrate, we put together a list of five websites where teachers can take advantage of discounts, free products and memberships year round!

1.  Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.  Microsoft gives teachers free access to all of its Office products.  All it takes is a school email address.

2.  A membership to one of the top organic food websites.  Thrive Market sells healthy and organic foods cheap . . . and they can do that because they charge a $5-a-month membership fee like a hippie Costco.  But teachers get that membership fee waived.

3.  Headspace, the mindfulness and meditation app.  It’s been maybe a little stressful for teachers lately.  Headspace is one of the top apps for calming down . . . and teachers get it totally free, saving $70-per-year.

4.  Teacher discounts. . . and good ones.  There are lots of stores that offer teacher discounts . . . including some stores, like Apple, who really don’t like giving out discounts.  Find the stores that offer those discounts, and take advantage of ’em.

5.  Insurance if students key your car.  Are you tough but fair?  Liberty Mutual offers free “vandalism loss protection” to teachers whose cars are vandalized on school property, as well as free collision coverage if you crash while driving to school business.
