Summer savings and back-to-school deals for teachers are ramping up this week. And with Amazon’s annual Prime Day on the horizon, educators will have plenty of options to save big this season.
Mobile tech plays a big role in teacher’s lives from creating lesson plans to teaching online courses. Finding everything on your teacher’s wish list on a budget doesn’t have to be overwhelming if you know where to look.
Just like students, teachers often look to Prime Day to save on classroom tech essentials. That’s the time of year when Amazon and other retailers unleash tons of deals on must have learning tools. And since Amazon extends select Prime Day savings to loyal customers teachers can benefit from having a Prime membership. If you’re not a Prime member, use your edu email address to join here (opens in new tab). Prime Student costs $7.49 per month or $69 a year — that’s half the cost of the standard Prime membership which is $14.99 monthly or $139 per year.
Teachers also get direct manufacturer education discounts on laptops, tablets and the accessories that go with them. For example, Apple’s Education Store (opens in new tab) instantly knocks $100 off the M1 MacBook Air and new M2 MacBook Pro. And for a limited time is giving away free gift cards valued at up to $150 with your purchase of a MacBook or iPad.
If you want to beat the back-to-school rush and catch early savings, now is the time. Here’s a sample of some of today’s best back-to-school deals for teachers.
