I don’t know about you, but I can just about count on my fingers and toes the number of school days that remain in the school year. While I’m ALWAYS excited about summer, I’m also excited to share that Teachers Pay Teachers is having a much anticipated Teacher Appreciation sale from May 9 – 10th. Here’s some exciting news: I’ve got a $10 TpT gift card to give away! Secondary Strategies, my TpT store, along with many others will be on sale. Here are some friendly reminders to help you save as much as possible during the sale:
- FEEDBACK Be sure to give feedback on all of your previous TpT purchases. That feedback means so much to sellers when they receive it, but along with that, all of the feedback you provide adds up, earning you TpT credits. From the TpT website: If you provide fair feedback on a $4.75 item, you will earn 5 credits. Every 100 Credits is worth $5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth $2.50, for example.
- PLAN AHEAD Be sure to load up your wish list and your cart ahead of the sale to facilitate faster shopping on sale days. Now’s a great time to think ahead to next year and make some plans for improving lessons and units over the summer. I know I’ll be working with several department members on curriculum this summer – will you? If so, now’s the ideal time to purchases those items that will help make that planning time efficient and effective.
- DISCOUNT CODE Once or twice I’ve forgotten to enter the sale code when I’m making a TpT purchase during a sale and checked out without getting the full 28% discount. It’s irritating, to say the least. I don’t want that to happen to you, so be sure to enter the code early on in the shopping process, and then double check to make sure that it is still entered before you check out. How on earth can you remember this step? Why not write down the sales code – THANKYOU 17 – on a stick note right now and stick that baby where you can’t miss it on your computer monitor on laptop screen. Let’s get all of the discount we can, right?
- TPT GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY If you would like a chance to win the gift card I’m giving away, fill in the subscribe box with your email address and leave a comment with the number of days you have left in your school year and one thing you just can’t wait to do this summer. Just think–those glorious summer days will be here before you know it! I’ll notify the gift card winner on the night of the 9th. Good luck to all!
