I received this message, a day late, and thought I'd pass it along.
Educator Appreciation Days are back! Here’s what you need to know:
· Your Educator Discount is good for a 25% discount on books, toys & games, music, DVDs, and tech gear - Your Educator Discount will also get you 10% off on Café consumables and NOOK devices
· Educator Appreciation Days run from Saturday, January 10th through Sunday, January 18th, 2015.
Here's what you really need to know: sales include Lego!

I wonder what's in store.

    This is correct. Though it states on the discount email that Lego is excluded, it'll still ring up discounted at the registers.

    Awesome...thanks!
    Also, if you are an educator, you can always get lego for 20% off but of course, their selection is limited and they are always at full price to start.

    @77ncaachamps‌ My email arrived as a "business invitation" and announced an in-store breakfast from 8 to 9 am on Saturday January 17. There was no mention of an exemption on Lego.
    I'm glad to hear you still received your discount at the register on your Lego purchase!

    How do I become an educator

    How do I become an educator

    Go to college and get a degree in "Education". Then apply non-stop for 2-3 years for every position in every podunk town within a 100 mile radius. Substitute teach until you land your first job. After you land your first teaching job, prepare to suffer for the next 40 years until you are ready to retire (or die. whichever comes first). Then only to learn that the 15% that was deducted from every paycheck to TRS has been sucked dry by "boomer" teachers who retired in their 50's. And don't forget the $300 a month student loan payment that never goes away. I am married to an educator.

    Haahaa... First thing that came to my mind is that "you don't want tone an educator!"

    Yes, there is a form you fill out. Just ask a worker. It definitely comes in handy knowing you can always get that discount. You even get discounts off book!!!

    Cool.

    Since the discount does work despite the legalese, this was what I was referring to:

    My wife is also an educator....this got a big chuckle. Anything that is funny, is usually rooted in some truth.

    Only those of us who collect Lego sets would look at the discount on books at a BOOK store secondary :smiley: Anyways I am a teacher and often take advantage of this deal. Most times of the year the purchases are supposed to be for the classroom. This sale is on personal purchases as well. Sadly most purchases I make there are for my classroom anyways.

    Check your email for a 20% off coupon to leverage this discount.

    @legogregors‌ B&N told me discounts don't stack with the Educator's card.
    As always, YMMV.

    It's the normal 20% of coupon that excludes LEGO in the Toys and Games Dept. Some have been able to use it for the Architecture themed Lego because it's considered "educational". Again...YMMV.

    Kept thinking the thread said 'equator' and I was like "that's way too far".

    If the person behind the register reads the fine print or has a knowledgeable manager who enforces this rule, then yes, YMMV.

    The register most often won't reject the coupon, though.

    Look at my post above. I took a screen shot, not from a normal 20% coupon, but from the Educator Discount email.
