There were a couple of places that multiple websites reported give discounts in store, but that we were unable to confirm on their websites. BUT you can always ask at the register:
- Eddie Bauer might give 15% off all their regular-priced selection when you show your teacher ID.
-So might New York & Company, again when you show your ID.
-Aerosoles Canada gives 15% off when you type your teacher ID number in the comments of your order, but that likely doesn't work for the US.
