If you're a teacher expect some of your friends to hit you up in the next few days, they want that teacher discount at Target stores. 

It's hard to believe it's back-to-school time already, but it is, especially when it comes to back-to-school shopping.

I'm trying to think back to July and August 2020, were there even back-to-school sales? Kids weren't exactly going 'back-to-school.'

I usually try to score some deals on college stuff in the weeks leading up to August, towels, hair dryers, anything for a small space, it's usually on sale right now in case you're in need. Last year not so much, but thankfully, things have changed a bit and the kids are headed back in a few weeks, which means the sales are on.

Target specifically offers a pretty great extra discount for teachers who are getting ready to go back.

From now until the end of July, teachers receive a 15 percent discount on select items that are 'select classroom supplies and essentials,' according to USA Today. 

The same article says they've been hosting this discount since 2018 and that last year they actually extended the time period from two weeks to six weeks due to the pandemic.

This year the sale started last Sunday and will end this Saturday.

Call your teacher friends - it's time to stock up on pens, notebooks, folders... whatever is included. I can't actually see because I'm not a teacher. So in that case, if you are a teacher please let me know!
