Reward a classroom

Staples has launched a program to help parents earn extra rewards for the educator and classroom of their choice whenever they shop. Staples already offers programs for parents and teachers to earn 5 percent back in rewards on their purchases.

With the new Reward A Classroom program, educators may earn an additional 2 percent back on regular purchases and 5 percent on Staples Copy & Print purchases. Visit staples.com/rewardaclassroom for more information.
