Is there an Amazon Teacher discount?

Unfortunately, there isn’t an official Amazon teacher discount. School administrators can create an Amazon Business for Education account which allows them tax-exempt purchases, discounts, and free delivery.

Multiple teachers can be enrolled under the same school account to get discounts on bulk supplies. Ask your school administrator if your school has this.


Use the Amazon Teacher Wish List feature.

The days of making a teacher wish list on paper are almost gone. With Amazon shopping at everyone’s fingertips, try putting your classroom needs on an Amazon Teacher Wish List. Once you create your wish list, it’s super easy to share the list with your class via email or even post it on social media.

Here’s how to set up an Amazon Teacher Wish List:

detailed instructions on how to set up an amazon teacher wish list

Now that your list is created, you can share the link with whomever you want. If the list is set to “shared,” only those with the link will be able to view it. If it’s set to “public” then anyone can access your link.

Every year Amazon has a Clear the List campaign to help teachers get all their wish list items purchased. To participate, make sure your list is set to public and share your Amazon Wish List on social media. Be sure to tag @amazon and use the hashtag #ClearTheList.
