For the third year in a row, Meijer is offering a special discount coupon just for teachers. But new for 2023, the store will let you use the Meijer teacher discount on wayyy more than just school supplies and office equipment.

Since you’ll need to present your teacher discount coupon to the cashier before checking out, the Meijer teacher discount is only available for in-store shopping. It won’t work online.


5. Skip the electronics, clearance, and groceries — those aren’t eligible for the teacher discount.

Like most discounts, the teacher discount at Meijer has certain exclusions. You won’t be able to use the teacher coupon on electronics, clearance items, home delivery, or store pickup. You also can’t use the coupon for groceries.

TIP: Calculators and computers are considered electronics (not school supplies), so the teacher discount at Meijer won’t work on those items either.



6. Stack your teacher discount with Meijer sale prices, but not with clearance.

Here are a couple of deals going on now at Meijer that will allow you to stack a sale price with your teacher discount.


7. There’s no limit to how many times you can get the paper coupon.
