MINNEAPOLIS — With summer in full swing, it might seem a bit early to start thinking about the upcoming school year. But teachers, it's time to make your back-to-school shopping list!

To help educators get their supply shopping done early and at a discount, Twin Cities-based Target is bringing back its popular Teacher Prep event for a fourth year.

To take advantage of the savings, teachers need to sign up for Target Circle, the retailer's loyalty program. Once registered, you'll get a one-time discount of 15% off select classroom supplies and necessities. It's redeemable through July 31.

The discount is available to all K-12 teachers, homeschool educators, daycare and early childhood learning center teachers, university and college professors and trade school teachers.

According to Target, over 80% of this year's back-to-school collection is under $10.

For parents and students doing their own school shopping, Target Circle users all earn 1% in rewards each time an eligible purchase is made with a non-RedCard.
