Staples, the world’s largest office and school products company, is getting some favorable buzz online with its marketing effort to host the Teacher Appreciation Day 2009. A great PR campaign to build your brand and establish strong tie ups with target customers.
Staples is setting aside Saturday, August 15, as Teacher Appreciation Day from 9 a.m. to noon. The first 100 teachers receive a special gift bag. Teachers can also take advantage of Staples Teacher Rewards Bonus Season where every $1 in product purchases counts as $2 in rewards. Indeed teachers really deserve lots of credit for helping us and our kids day after day.
On the other hand, Office Depot is recognizing teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week from August 9 through August 15. Teachers receive 10 percent off qualifying purchases all this week. The fun ends on Saturday with a special Teacher Appreciation Breakfast August 15 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Houston locations. The breakfast includes giveaways and bonus rewards, too.
