Overstock Gives Back To Teachers With Rewards

The kids aren’t quite back to school yet, but Overstock is getting ready for the season by expanding its rewards membership to teachers.

Overstock will not offer its free Club O loyalty program memberships to include all teachers. This means for every purchase those teachers make on Overstock.com, they will receive at least 5 percent back in Club O Rewards Dollars that they can be spent on the site, along with free shipping on all orders.

“This is just one small way for us to say ‘thank you’ to teachers for their hard work in the classroom,” said Overstock.com President Stormy Simon. “Hopefully the ability to use Club O reward dollars on purchases from our Teacher’s Headquarters will help stretch classroom budgets.”

Educators can verify their teaching credentials by using a .edu email address and other credentials that are listed on Overstock.com to receive this free membership. Outside of teachers, military servicemen and women, students, and first responders are all also eligible for free annual Club O memberships (normally $19.99 for regular customers). When shopping on the Extra Rewards Store, those members receive 20 percent off when using their Club O Rewards.

Overstock also recently launched its new Teacher Headquarters, which is a page specifically filled with products that teachers might need to kick off the school year. Items on that section of the site include school supplies, classroom furniture, educational tools, and teacher-inspired fashion and accessories.
