It may still be summer, but back-to-school sales have started surfacing—and today, Target launched one heckuva deal for educators.

Now through July 21st, Target is offering teachers a 15 percent discount on select school supplies in all its stores and online.

As if we needed a reason to love Target more, right?

The “Teacher Prep Event” requires educators to provide their name, school, email address and ZIP code on this page; in return, they’ll be e-mailed a single-use coupon code to use this week on classroom supplies ranging from notebooks, pens, and arts and crafts, to hand sanitizer, tissues, and classroom organization supplies.

It’s no secret teachers often end up spending money out of their own pockets to stock their classrooms, so the sale has been generating a lot of buzz on social media from educators and parents alike. Last week, Target confirmed the first-time event on Twitter, saying the sale would begin July 15th, and was intended to make life a little easier on teachers as they ready their classrooms for the upcoming school year. 

On Sunday, Target’s website also began offering a sneak peak into a one-day, online-only sale planned for July 17th—the day after Monday’s annual Amazon Prime day. A preview of the event advertises “25 percent off small appliances, cookware & floorcare; 25 percent off beauty & personal care; 30 percent off exclusive home brands found only at Target” with more discounted items yet to come. 

Here’s hoping the shelves are well-stocked for teachers this week and the website is ready to handle tons of traffic for both of these sales!
