Here’s a note from a member who saved in the Apple store by asking about teacher discounts, then showing her card.
Many companies give teacher discounts and the HEAV membership card verifies your homeschool status. Yesterday, I was in the Apple store, and my daughter was asked if she was a college student. She replied, “No.” I then asked if teachers get a discount. The gal said yes if I had ID. I shuffled through my wallet and showed her my HEAV membership card ["Teacher ID"] and explained that I was a home educator. We got a 10% discount off of a very expensive replacement battery. Thanks HEAV!
