FREE Laminating for Teachers
Old 08-08-2007, 04:28 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #1

I know my PT friends will be able to help me. I recall seeing posts regarding Office Max offerring free laminating for teachers.

I looked back at the posts but couldn't find answers to the questions I had. I also went onto their website and couldn't find answers. So here they are:

Do you need to belong to some kind of program to "qualify" to do this?

How do you prove you are a teacher?
'
Do you have to walk in first thing in the morning and pick up by the end of the day? Can you drop off at 4:00, let's say, and pick up the following day OR does it need to be specifically on Thursday (I think the day was -correct?)?

See, lots of questions.

Anyone know the answers?

I would be so grateful,
Shark

You do not have to belong to any program at all, just be a teacher. Print the coupon off their website and that is your proof that you are a teacher. You have to place the order on a Thursday, anytime that they are open. Sometimes it takes them 15 minutes to do it, sometimes it takes a couple of days. It depends on their workload. You just pick it up when they call you.

I found the coupon from one of the other posts (I think) and I saved it into my favorites.

They really don't ask for any proof you are a teacher? Awesome!!!

You guys are the best!!!

Yes its all true...No coupon no real proof,,,just letem know youre a teacher....

I was among the 1st 3 when ours here in Evans/Augusta Ga open the first thursday,,,,i took a medium load to be laminated...I left it at around 7:30 I was number 3,,,it was ready at 2:30.....then i forgot i had letters to do. I took those back at 6:30 I was then #64...they told me it would probably be two weeks before they got to my letters..I then called on Sunday,,they were only on #16,,,

they told me one teacher used a whole roll of lamination by herself...i thought that was disgraceful....Some were not considerate at all. Office Max did a great thing but I dont know that they realized what they were doing. If they do it again it will probably be limits.

Although they did a great thing, when i got mine back my posters were had been ripped and put back together, i had a castle that I cut in three parts as directed by the worker...when i got it back it had been cut into 5 peices and ripped in several places and then laminated back together...It was like putting a large puzzle together. some of my diecuts were laminated on top of each other,,,,i was very upset...i thought i shouldve just paid staples....

I think they are in way over there heads,,,although there again,,,nice gesture

I took my 2nd load to Office Max first thing this morning. They had extra people in that area just for the teacher promotion. Today she offered to cut everything out for me, but I told her I would do that. I was surprised to receive a phone call at 9am letting me know my items were ready! I'm more than pleased!!!

I am in NC and the store did ask to see my teacher ID. They said it would be ready tomorrow, but I could pick it up any time after that as well.

i took the coupon. there was NO ONE in there. I walked right up. They had no other lamination orders but said to come back tomorrow because I took stuff for me and two other teachers so it was quite a bit. I'm crossing my fingers that it comes out good!

You do not have to be a teacher. You don't have to have a coupon. You don't even have to have a perks card. I just walked into Office Max with a huge bag full of stuff (probably 35-40 feet worth of laminating for me and others). The only requirement is that you submit the order on Thursday, so the next one is next week.

I took in a bunch of stuff too. They were very nice. When I picked it up there are some pieces that are ruined. A few pieces didn't stick like maybe it wasn't hot enough. Luckily it was only some border and a couple posters that really aren't vital. They offered to redo it if I took it back tomorrow. I expressed my apreciation and told her that it was no problem. It could have happened to me too and you know if I was really worried I should have done it myself.
She said thanks for NOT YELLING and that others have really given her a hard time about things. I can't imagine yelling at a clerk over anything, let alone some free laminating. Although I do wonder, are they this careless with paying customers?
