Teacher Appreciation Day and Week Deals for Teachers: Resource Roundup for 2024

Here is my annual blog post with discounts for Teacher Appreciation Week!  Like last year, instead of listing specific offers for teachers in disparate categories such as restaurants, stores, and museums, this year's post is a round up of websites that have collated all kinds of deals.

When is Teacher Appreciation Week in 2024?

In 2024, Teacher Appreciation Week goes from May 6th through May 10th and Teacher Appreciation Day is on May 7th.  Not all sites have announced their special deals for teachers yet.  However, I'm publishing this blog post early so you have time to read through all the offers and see which ones you’d like to take advantage of next week.   
These meta lists have been updated for Teacher Appreciation Day and Teacher Appreciation Week for 2024.  They also include year-round offers so hopefully you will find them useful longer than for just the week designated for teachers.  (Because teachers should be celebrated all year long, not just 1 week, right?!)  So you'll have to click on the links that appeal to you to see which offers are valid when, although in some cases that is noted in their blurbs.

Websites with 2024 Teacher Appreciation Week Deals

Click on the green links below to go to each website:

* From DontPayFull: Teacher Discounts 2024: The Complete List of Offers for Educators

* From We Are Teachers: The Best Teacher Appreciation Giveaways and Deals for 2024

* From Dealhack: Teacher Discounts Guide: The Ultimate List of Stores

* From Teachers of Tomorrow: 25+ Teachers Appreciation Week Discounts and Deals for 2024

* From Rutgers Graduate School of Education: 68 Discounts, Deals and Resources for Teacher Appreciation Week

* And from PTO Today: Teacher Appreciation Week 2024 Resources 

The first 5 websites overlap each other and include many of the same resources.  The last website is more about the ideas for how families, friends, and colleagues can honor the teachers in their lives. If I find more discounts, I will update this post.

I haven’t verified all the links within the websites so it’s possible that some of them won’t lead to special offers in your own geographical area.  And, sorry international educators, but I'm pretty sure these discounts are only applicable in the US.

Special Food Deals and Discounts

In the past, these restaurants have had deals for teachers but they haven't announced them yet so I don't know if they will again this year.  They may not have anything on their websites until the weekend beforehand. Click on the green links below to see if these places are offering any specials on May 7th or during the whole week:

* Abuelo’s
* Applebee's
* Firehouse Subs
* Freddy's
* The Green Turtle
* Grimaldi's
* Insomnia Cookies
* Logan's Roadhouse
* McAlister’s Deli
* Mod Pizza
* Perkins
* Potbelly
* TGI Friday’s
* Whataburger
* Sonic

The restaurants usually ask to see your teacher ID so make sure you bring it with you in case they ask for proof that you're an educator.  They might also have other requirements so just check in advance.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!
