As a registered Homeschool in NC you can save money anywhere that offers educational discounts! It is easy to do. Just print out your "Non Public School Registration Record" from NC and show it to the store that offers the discount.
Step one: Gather some information you used to register your homeschool. You need to have the last name used for the 'administrator', and your 'Homeschool ID number'. If you do not have the ID number easily available you can look it up by entering the email you used to register in this website: http://www.doa.nc.gov/dnpe/HSGetSchoolID.aspx.
Step two: Go to http://www.doa.nc.gov/dnpe/HSVerificationCard.aspx and enter the last name and ID number. This will bring up your certificate of registration. Print it and you are done. You can even shrink in a copy and keep it in your wallet!
Step three: Go and save!
