Archives For Free Stuff

Just a quick note for the teacher in you:) A few fun things showed up in my email this morning! I love free stuff that is also good stuff!


1. Staples. The yearly “Teacher Appreciation Day” is coming! If you are a registered teacher (this includes homeschoolers with ID) they will be giving away gift bags (to first 100 each store) and have other information and specials. A $10 off $50 coupon is also available. Check the site for the date for your state. Ours is August 15th!


2. Usborne Books is offering their “Get Started with Usborne” Kit for only $15 until August 10th. This is crazy! For that you get the starter kit, well–here in their words:

“Join our team this August, and you will receive 10 of our most popular titles, a set of business supplies, including OrderPro (our electronic ordering program), and a 6 month eCommerce Consultant Web Site.” After the 10th, the price increases, but is still less than the usual price. I assume they are getting ready for school. Anyway, I am suspicious of anything that costs money to start…but I have heard good things about this and for $15 you get 10 Usborne books…go here to check it out. I want to do, but I’m moving so I’m not sure about it yet. I have til 8/10!


3. And last, but cetainly not least, Kidthing is at it again! I love this little ereader, game player, etc. I guess their “Summer Sizzles” promos are ending, but looks like they will continue to send freebies for the kids! Today’s freebie is a Back to School animated book, “First Day Jitters” it is available in English and Spanish. (This is also for teachers–homeschoolers go get them:) Enter the code: ktcode-NEA5RAA, in the search space on the Store homepage.
