Teacher Appreciation Sale Tips and Giveaway!!!!! a wishlist linky

Hiya! It is May my friends! For many of us this is the last month of teaching. I am currently in my last full week of teaching! We get out next week on Thursday! This year has flown by! Even the last 7 weeks which I have taught full time with no breaks! I know rough right?
I am almost certain that this is why Teacher Appreciation week falls the first week of May! It's that last little umph to get us through the end of the year. It reminds us that we are appreciated even if we don't always feel like it!
PTA/PTO's are celebrating teachers, parents send in things (note to self: finish kid's gifts for their teachers), even major retailers take notice and give teachers extra discounts!
My favorite of all of these starts tomorrow! The Teachers Pay Teachers Teacher Appreciation Sale!!! A chance to purchase materials for next year at up to 28% off! Or to purchase materials for summer school for those of us crazy, lucky enough to be teaching for an extra 4-8 weeks!

Tips for a GREAT time during the Teachers Pay Teachers Appreciation Sale.
1. Make sure you have left feedback to earn TPT Credits!
Yes that's right when you leave feedback on your purchases each $ you spent earns you 1 TPT Credit.
20 Credits =$1 FREE just for leaving feedback! I was talking to a coworker today who DID NOT know about this! She is so excited to get even more during the sale tomorrow!
A tip I learned today you can go into my purchases and filter out: Needs Feedback to make sure you haven't missed any!
2. Buy from sellers who's products are on sale for 20% off! Not all sellers are on sale and they can choose how much to discount their products. To get the most bang for your buck choose products that are 20% off.
3. Buy bundles! Bundles are more than one product bundled together to save you money! Buy them during the sale and you will save even more!!!
4. Redeem gift cards, if you have received a TPT gift card you can redeem it during the sale! To check the balance go HERE. Oh and you have a chance to WIN a $10 TPT gift card from me if you keep reading, so be sure to read all the way to the bottom of this post!
Not sure what to get?
Here are some suggestions from my store:
1. My End of the Year bundle. It's awards and a memory book to keep them busy and learning and reward all of their hard work this past year. And it's bundled! So you are already saving money PLUS the sale!!!!
