Dates of the teacher deals and participation can vary by location. Most offers require teachers to show a school ID.

To be on the safe side, always check with your closest location before heading out. Also, some will require you to have a restaurant’s app or be signed up for emails.

From Sunday through Saturday, teachers who are Office Depot and OfficeMax Rewards members will receive 25% back in rewards on a qualifying purchase when they present a unique coupon and rewards number at checkout. The coupon will be available online at beginning Sunday.

Taco Bell: Get a free taco May 4:

Taco Bell says it has created a new “lunar phase” that it has dubbed “Taco Moon.”

And since the fast-food chain says the moon will look like a taco on Tuesday, it will offer free tacos around the world. In the U.S., the free tacos will be crunchy, the chain said in a news release.

But when the offer is available depends on how you order it.

The free taco is available all day Tuesday when ordering online or through the app, and it’s available from 8 to 11:59 p.m. when ordering in-store.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, which is Cinco de Mayo, Taco Bell will also offer its rewards members 150 bonus points on the $5 Build Your Own Cravings Box and the $15 Build Your Own Taco Party Pack.
