Thanks

Aww man that stinks. That's no bueno. That's one of the reasons why my clients liked ordering books from me ... they could get free book vouchers while earning my daycare free books also. Where was the email/notice saying that they were going to do this?? I don't remember getting one!

The books seem to be a little more expensive too. What were some of the other changes? I seemed to miss them?

I just signed up, so I didn't realize this until after I signed up; but it's in their frequently asked questions.

I agree that the books seem more expensive as well.

Also, I just ordered from the Oct catalogs and received my order Thursday. TWO books have already come apart at the seams. My kids are older and gentle with books.

I will say though I got a TON of free books with my September order!
I think the teacher perks are good. I did get the free Llama book and stickers plus the 10 free fall books. I had 40 free books in all this order.

Hmm, I just got two coupons for free books and a coupon for double my points via the mail.

My DCP's also ordered books online for September and when I received the books, there were 5 coupons for a free book in the box (one for each parent that ordered on-line).

Yes, I got this deal as well. My orders aren't due until the 28th so I won't be getting mine until then and I do get to use the parent coupons as well as my coupons from my previous order (before summer) but I guess those will be the last ones that I get to use. At least they are still keeping the points.

Are you talking about the $5 coupons that you got when you ordered as a parent? I hope those aren't gone! I was going to order from DD's school as well as our own. I loved those coupons!

Yes the $5 coupon for the parent and the $3 one for the teacher. blackcat you got them this month? Interesting. I agree I thought the books were flimsier. But the teacher perks are awesom. I got the 10 free books but WOW 40 would of been awesome. Was that with you bonus points??

Yeah, I just got two postcards that were a coupon for free books and one postcard for doubling my points on my next order

I also received the books my daycare parents ordered online for September on the 18th and in the box were $3 off coupons to spend online.

I recently got my September order and no coupons for parents (had 3 parent orders) or teacher.

I got a postcard for 200 extra bonus points with my next order over $25 (by end of October I think) in the mail yesterday.

I've been with Scholastic since I first opened. I believe they have me listed as a teacher in a public preschool because back then when I registered with them, daycare provider's weren't accepted....I have never "corrected" their mistake

I wonder if that is the reason.

Also, I never got any type of notification that they were discontinuing coupons for teachers and/or parents. How were you notified of this?

I'm on the phone with them now and they said they did away with the parent/teacher coupons (per first customer rep) 2nd rep told me that only red apple teachers should receive parent/teacher coupons. Which I am. So they sent me those out tonight.

The billing is also all screwed up and no one can figure out why it was charging me if different rates when I was placing my order so I called it in and now my balance(which I shouldn't have) is varying online and on my itemized list. Thank goodness the customer service department is so good

I see! Grandfathered in! I wouldn't be pointing anything out to them either!


I'd be interested to know how people were notified as well. I've read all the emails and flyers but I didn't know anything about it being discontinued.
