Tuck your membership card in your wallet as soon as you receive it so you can take advantage of educator/homeschooler discounts if they're offered.
Below are a few discounts available to homeschool families. If you know of others, please post a message in this thread and I'll add them to the list.
SC State Museum
Homeschool students (K5-12) and one parent get in free on Tuesday-Thursday. Check their website for full details. (Special Exhibits usually cost extra - only admission to the museum itself is free.)
Through etvSreamlineSC, SC homeschoolers receive free Discovery Education Streaming, as well as ETV and ITV content, and related quizzes, assignments, black line masters, teachers' guides, and more. To get an account, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com with the following information:
- in the subject line, type: Streamline for homeschools
- tell them your name, name of your association, your address, and the ages of your children
They'll email you a passcode and instructions for creating your account. (We'll use some of the content here for our history e-projects, so make sure you create an account when you become members.)
Ripley's Aquarium (Myrtle Beach)
I don't know about in other areas, but Ripley's Aquarium in Myrtle Beach offers significant discounts for homeschooling families. Visit their website or call them for rates.
NC homeschool students (K-12), and one parent, get in free. Out-of-state homeschool students received a discounted price of $6 and one parent gets in free. For more information about discounts, visit their website.

You'll get a 20% discount off the publisher's list price on select items that they consider suitable for use in the classroom or with the student population, including most hardcover and paperback books, toys, and games. Visit their website for more information.
