CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Staples, Inc. is giving away free samples and coupons to the first 100 teachers at each of its 1,300 stores nationwide -- including 13 locations in Greater Cleveland, plus an additional 10 percent off their in-store purchases with valid ID, during a national Teacher Appreciation Day event on Wednesday, Aug. 17. 

"We appreciate all that teachers do for students so Staples is hosting our own Teacher Appreciation Day to help teachers save on their classroom supplies for the new school year," said Christine Mallon, Staples' vice president of retail marketing, in a written announcement.

"Teachers will receive a special discount and coupons as well as season-long low prices on back-to-school essentials with the Less List for School." Staples' Less List includes popular school items like composition books, two-pocket folders, pens, scissors, crayons, calculators, USB drives, ear buds, and batteries.

Staples has stores in Akron, Alliance, Chardon, Cleveland's West Side, Copley, Cuyahoga Falls, Elyria, Mayfield Heights, Medina, Mentor, Streetsboro, Strongsville, and Wooster.

The one-day event is also designed to promote Staples' Teacher Rewards program, which gives teachers up to 5 percent in Staples Rewards for online and in-store purchases (excluding postage, phone and gift cards), including technology and services; up to 10 percent in Rewards on purchases of teaching and art supplies; and free shipping on orders of at least $14.99.

Staples has a loyalty program for college students and teachers with exclusive deals on back-to-school brands. It also has a 110-percent lowest price guarantee that it will match competitors' prices and give 10 percent off the difference between its price and another retailer's advertised price.

Other deals for teachers are listed at or in its weekly newspaper inserts and other advertisements.

Staples, based in Framingham, Massachusetts, on Tuesday announced it had donated $1 million to, a charity that has funded classroom projects for teachers and which Staples says has helped more than 18 million students across the country. Its Staples for Students campaign and Katy Perry funded the balance of every project listed on in Boston and the Metrowest community. The website lets teachers connect with donors and upload their classroom projects.

Staples is scheduled to release its second-quarter 2016 sales at 10 a.m. on Wednesday. The company has said it plans to close at least 50 stores in North America this year. Its investor relations info can be accessed at
