5 Tips for Shopping on Teachers Pay Teachers


1. LEAVE FEEDBACK

Did you know you can earn credit for every dollar you spend on TpT?!  Each time you spend a dollar you earn one credit.  So if you purchase something for $4 and you leave feedback, you'll earn 4 credits!  Once you get 20 credits, you get $1.00 toward your next purchase. That's free money people!!  All you have to do is leave feedback on anything you've purchased. You can do this for all purchased items all the way back to 2011!  I'm telling ya, leaving feedback is totally worth it!

2.  CHECK YOUR MAIL

Many sellers send notes to their followers.  Often these include freebies, new products, and special deals!  I've even heard of sellers giving away TPT gift cards to their followers!

3.  SHOP YOUR WISH LIST

If you're anything like me, your wish list is a mile long!  Go through your wish list and move all the items you want to buy to your cart.  You can always move an item back to your wish list if you change your mind.  This is also a good time to clean up your wish list.  Maybe you no longer teach that grade or you already have something similar...go ahead and get rid of it!  After you have filled your cart, go check out some of your favorite sellers' stores.  Many sellers create and post lots of new products right before the big sale!!

4.  USE TpT CREDITS

Once you've finalized your shopping decisions, it's time to check out!  Try to use as many of your TpT credits as you can!!  Remember that 20 credits = $1 And don't worry about using up all your credits because once you buy and download your new items, you can leave feedback and start they cycle all over again!

Now it's time to enjoy your new products!!  Don't forget to leave feedback on your new items!
Remember, most are hard working teachers (just like you) who spend their time off making amazing products, so please leave positive, useful comments!  If a product is not what you expected, ask or email the seller before leaving negative feedback.  Most sellers will be happy to help!

  1. Great tips. I need to go through my wishlist. Our curriculum has changed (due to Common Core adoption + district adoptions). This means I probably have science units that I don't teach, etc. Thanks for the reminder.

  7. Great tips! I always remind people that they can earn credit for leaving feedback. Sometimes I wonder if nonsellers {is this a real word} realize this as much as sellers do! I know I never knew that until I became a seller myself.

    1. I don't think everyone knows, because I received a few notifications when I posted this on Facebook that they had never heard of it! That's why I was trying to get the word out there. By the way, you're a no reply blogger.
