Here is a list of places where homeschoolers can get discounts if you show them the proper documentation. (Usually, your Notice of Intent.)
Bright Eyes Cafe’ offers a 10% Educator’s discount.
Joanne Fabrics (This program is now through their app or online. There is no longer a physical card. Once you sign up, you will get an email with a scannable barcode. You will receive a 15% discount.)
Michael’s (You get a 15% discount when you show your Notice of Intent.)
Barnes and Noble (You will get an educator card and get 20% off teaching materials, and 3-4 times a year, your card allows you to take 25% off your entire purchase.)
Office Max (10% back in rewards points for Star Teachers.)
Christopher and Banks/CJ Banks (You get a 10% discount when you show your Notice of Intent.)
-The Great Falls Public Library also has a special incentive for homeschoolers. Show your copy of the stamped letter of intent to homeschool and you will get 4 weeks for lending books and get to check out way more books at a time.
-If you are wanting to get an HSLDA (Home School Legal Defense Association) discount, please let us know. One of our members has access to a group discount for Cascade County Homeschoolers.
We are hoping to have CMOAH membership cards eventually, however it isn’t our top priority.
-The following companies and people do not provide a discount to members at this time, but they have helped out CMOAH, and we suggest you tell them, thank you, on behalf of homeschoolers and visit their businesses.
A HUGE thank you to:
Jim Koontz-Accountant and Mortgage Representative. (He helped us with the paperwork and filing for our Non-Profit Status and with our tax filings.) You can reach him at 406-727-8163 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
