Cyber Monday Sale!!!

It's that time of year again!!!  I'm so excited to participate in my second Cyber Monday + Tuesday sale on Teachers Pay Teachers Dec 2nd and 3rd.  I am putting my entire store on sale for 20% off, and TpT will be adding an additional 10% off for a total discount of 28% off!  Don't forget to use the promo code CYBER to ensure that you get the discount.  Start filling up your wish list now, and get ready to go on a fantastic shopping spree for incredible teaching resources.  Happy Holidays!


  1. Hi, Terry. I'm Lori from Mrs. Ross's Science Class. I am a new TpT Seller and I came across your post about the Cyber Monday and Tuesday Sale on my Bloglovin page. Could you please answer a question for me about the 28% discount that you mention on your post? How do you arrive at the 28% and not 30, and, do all sellers get to offer the promo code "CYBER"? Somewhere I missed the boat on this information.Thanks. Lori

    1. Hi Lori. Thanks so much for your question! It's definitely a common one. Here's how it's figured out...

      First, whatever you are buying is already discounted 20% (unless the seller chooses to sell at 15, 10 or 5). So you are getting 20% off of your purchases. Next, TpT takes 10% off of the 20% discounted price, so it's not exactly a full 30%. 10% of 20% is 2%, which is why it's 2% less than 30 (28%). For example, if you have exactly $100 of items that are discounted 20%, they will really cost you $80. When TpT takes 10% off of that ($8), it will come out to $72. You save $28 (or 28%) of the original purchase price. I hope that helps! Luckily I teach 5th grade math, so it has helped in figuring out, and explaining, percents and discounts.

      You have to personally set your store at 20% off to make your store go on sale. It's up to the buyer to enter CYBER when they check out at the very end, just before paying. If they don't put CYBER in, they won't automatically get the additional 10% off.

      Please let me know if you have any other questions, and good luck with the sale!


    2. Okay! That explains it. Thanks so much for your thorough explanation. I appreciate it very much. Wishing you the best on your sale, Terry. This will be my very first one so I am pretty excited. Thanks again for your help and Happy Thanksgiving!
