There are a lot of places that offer discounts to educators, and these discounts apply to homeschoolers as well! Just bring in your proof of homeschooling (usually a state form or membership ID of some sort) and sign up. If you know of any more, please email me or leave a comment so I can add to the list!

This isn't a discount, but I wanted to include it here as a freebie that homeschoolers are eligible for.

Enroll on 5/1/2011 for the 2011-2012 school year.
Six Flags has a reading program where K-6th graders can earn a free ticket. One homeschooling "teacher" will earn a free ticket as well. You must be within a certain distance from a park in order to participate.
In September 2010 they had Teacher Appreciation days every Wednesday for 6 weeks. Show your proof of homeschooling form and get 15% off your purchase and 20% off Walgreens brand items.
