Who qualifies for the Michaels Teachers Discount?

Educators across all levels of learning, from Pre-K to post-graduate programs in the United States, are invited to join the program. This includes teachers employed at daycare centers, early childhood education institutions and home schools, as well as instructors or teachers for after-school programs such as Boys & Girls Clubs.

Michaels uses a trusted third party to verify eligibility status for online enrollment and may require additional documentation or proof of eligibility.

To verify your teacher credentials, a valid school-issued document or credential is all that’s needed. This includes educator ID cards with a current date of issue and even pay stubs from within the last 60 days!

How quickly will I be verified?

In most instances, verification is instantaneous. If more paperwork is needed, the process can take anywhere from a few minutes to 20 minutes.

The process to get verified differs whether you are in person or shopping online:

  • In Stores — Show your educator ID at checkout to get the discount. And if you have a Michaels Rewards account, your account will be synced automatically within 24 hours.
  • Online — Create a Michaels Rewards account and follow the Teacher prompt within your account dashboard.

Are there any restrictions or exclusions for the Michaels Teachers Discount?

Teachers can only use the Teacher Discount once per product and once per day.

Also, educators must have completed the verification process through Michael’s Rewards program in order to get the Teacher Discount. The good news it that even before you have your educator ID verified, you are eligible to receive the Teacher Discount on up to three of your first purchases!

  • Custom framing
  • Michaels Photo Gifts
