The promo, valid Tuesday from 4 p.m. to closing time, includes burritos, bowls, salads and tacos. The offer isn't valid for catered orders. Orders can't be placed online or via mobile of fax. There's a limit of one item per staff ID shown.

From now through Saturday, teachers can receive 20 percent off their entire purchase (including sale items) at any A.C. Moore Arts & Crafts location. While the discount can be used during each shopping visit, the discount can't be used to purchase gift cards, classes or custom framing orders.
Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores
Educator’s visiting Jo-Ann Fabric locations can sign up for a Teachers Rewards Discount Card, which comes with a bonus 20 percent off coupon. The card not only allows teachers to receive a discount on their holiday purchase during teacher's week but also offers savings on future purchases made in-store.

Every trip to Michaels craft store can result in savings for teachers. While some exclusions do apply, a 15 percent off coupon is available to use during each visit, not just Teacher Day, when purchasing products designed for the classroom.
New York & Co.
Treat yourself to some new work clothes on Tuesday, by taking advantage of New York & Co.'s 30 percent off coupon for teachers and nurses. The offer, valid until Wednesday, is good for in-store and online purchases. (Online shoppers must use the code 1810 to receive this deal.)
The Limited is honoring teachers by offering its social media followers the chance to vote for their favorite educators by using the hashtag #LTDLoveTeachers. The winner, to be announced on Tuesday, will receive a $150 gift card.
