MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Teachers who shop at Wal-Mart are eligible to save up to 10 percent in classroom supplies for the upcoming school year.

During Teacher Appreciation week, July 25 through the 31st, teachers can receive a Wal-Mart eGift Card for 10 percent back, on nearly 15,000 products. This includes pencils, pens, paper, classroom décor and more.

Wal-Mart has donated more than $20 million to U.S. educators in the last five years. "On average, teachers around the country spend about $1,000 readying their classrooms, and half of that comes from reaching into their own wallets to make sure students have what they need," said Steve Bratspies, Executive Vice President, General Merchandise for Wal-Mart U.S.

In order to receive the discount the teacher must:

• Shop Wal-Mart stores for classroom supplies.

• Visit www.walmart.com/teachers by August 15 to register receipts by entering teacher's school information and receipt transaction code.

• Savings on eligible items from select departments* will be delivered on a Wal-Mart eGift card via email within 14 days of submitting the receipt online.

Through the Wal-Mart Foundation's Teacher Rewards program, all Sam's Club, Wal-Mart stores and distribution centers will receive gift cards to give to local schools. Wal-Mart will also host, "Fill the Bus," which provides almost half of a million school supplies to local students.
