Teacher Appreciation Days

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



The Big Three office supply stores are hosting their Teacher Appreciation Days, some as soon as TOMORROW!  In order to participate in the savings and the extravaganza, they ask that you have their teacher rewards/perks/etc cards available.  If you don’t have one, just bring a valid teacher ID (and perhaps a current pay stub, just for extra backup), and you can apply in store.

  • Office Depot: The whole week (July 31 – August 6) is Teacher Appreciation week); the breakfast is Saturday, August 6, which will include a FREE tote bag filled with sample goodies and coupons.  Also enjoy 20% off your purchse, with your Star Teacher card.  (limitations apply)  Click here for more details, and to check for your location.
  • Office Max: Sunday, July 31st and Monday, August 1st they are hosting their Teacher Appreciation Days.  The first 150 participants each day receive a FREE tote bag full of goodies, and 20% off your purchase, when you use your Teacher Perks card.  Click here for more details, and to check for your location.
  • Staples: Saturday, July 30, from 9 a.m. to noon – the first 100 participants get a tote bag full goodies.  I don’t see anything about a discount, but I’m sure there’s one applicable for the day.  (Gotta compete, right?)  Click here for more details, and to check for your location.
**All dates listed are for the metro-Atlanta area.  To find out the dates beyond this area, please check the stores’ websites for more details.**

…and the winner is (Part 2) {$25 Ross Dept Store gift card giveaway}

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



(Since the initial winner of the $25 Ross gift card did NOT respond within the allotted time frame, I redrew a winner, via Rafflecopter.)  

I am pleased to announce the winner of the $25 Ross Dept Store gift card.  But first, I want to thank everyone who entered — it was a SMASHING success, and I loved hearing all of your ideas on how to spend the gift card.  (Honestly, if I’d ask you to dress up as a farm animal and submit video footage of your best barnyard dance, I think y’all would’ve done so — this was one *HOT* giveaway!)  ;o)

And so, without further ado,  the winner is Kristy B.  I’ve sent an email (please check your spam/junk folder) — you have until Thursday evening to respond!  Congratulations to Kristy, and thanks to everyone for your participation.

Stay tuned: the Big Blog Birthday Bash is quickly approaching — there’ll be even MORE chance to win some GREAT prizes!  :o)
