I'm sure that many of these are local, but in New Hampshire, at least, I'd add Agway, Hannafords Grocery, and Verizon. I've also had lots of luck with local businesses like bookstores and toy stores . I just tell them that I'm buying these items for use in a classroom (usually my husband's since my students are grown-ups) and they often give a 10 or 15% discount. Never hurts to ask, right? I also get a LOT of mileage out of my AAA discount card.
