We are so excited to have configured our website to allow you to apply Flying Pig educator discounts to your online orders. Here's how it works, and please scroll down to the note in red below.
If you are a regular purchaser with the Flying Pig, just email firstname.lastname@example.org
to ask us to assign you a "Teacher Role."
You will also want to use separate accounts for school and personal purchases.
Once we have enabled your teacher status online, please add your school's information and tax-exempt number in your account in order to avoid sales tax. Always make sure you are signed in to your teacher account before making a school order and filling your cart.
When you are ready to pay for your school or library order, head to your shopping cart and click Checkout.
From there, you'll fill out all the info as usual until you reach "Payment Method." Your discount depends on your payment method.
If you would like to be invoiced for your order, select "Pay by "Teacher PO/Check" and write your full name and school in the "House Account" field. Teachers who elect to pay by this method will receive a 20% discount off their order. To finalize your discount you will need to enter 'TEACHER20' in the coupon discount field. This is the last step before selecting "Review Order."
PLEASE NOTE: The discount applies to the list price of a book, and is not applied on top of the already-discounted 10%-off web prices. We are working with the web host to fix the issue. In the meantime, we will contact you with the correct amount of your book purchase for your approval.
If you would like to pay by Credit Card, simply enter your Credit Card information in the provided field. Teachers who elect to pay by this method will receive a 17% percent discount off their order.

How quickly are orders processed?
We place orders daily, and most ordered items arrive between 1 and 10 days, depending on the ready availability of the titles you're ordering. Please note: supply chains and delivery services have been greatly affected by COVID, so there are occasional delays nationwide. We promise to get things to you as quickly as we can within our powers to do so! We thank you for your patience and support.
