Am I eligible?

You need to be currently working in the education field or have an active teaching credential.

Sometimes the brands we work with will decide to limit the offer to only some types of people in the educational community. If on the form you don't see an option that is a close fit, then that means you unfortunately are not eligible for this offer.

What information should I enter?

  1. Full school name
  2. First and last name, as shown on school records
  3. School-issued email address preferred; personal ok
  4. (if asked) Personal mobile phone number, that can receive SMS text message

It is important you enter your school-issued email address. In most cases the brand we work with will not use this for marketing purposes; if they do, you can always unsubscribe.
