Special discount offered to families and educators to help prepare for the new school year

ALEXANDRIA, Va., (Aug. 4, 2015) — National PTA® is pleased to announce that Boxed Wholesale has become the association’s newest Member Benefit Provider. Boxed Wholesale offers online and mobile wholesale shopping with no membership fees. With Boxed, families, schools and businesses can purchase products in big sizes and at low prices and have them delivered right to their door. Through the alliance, PTA members can receive discounts on purchases made through Boxed.

“Families are on-the-go, and back-to-school is a particularly busy time of year,” said Laura Bay, president of National PTA. “We are pleased to team up with Boxed Wholesale to provide families and educators a convenient and cost-effective way to purchase items they need for their homes and classrooms.”

Boxed delivers groceries, health and beauty products, and everyday essentials in bulk sizes directly to doorsteps across the U.S. Everything from healthy snacks and soap to pencils and tissues can be ordered at or via the free Boxed app, making it easier for families and educators to enjoy wholesale shopping while saving time, money and gas.

To help families and educators prepare for the new school year, Boxed will offer all PTA members a special discount of $10 off $50 on purchases made from Aug. 1 to Sept. 15. Starting Sept. 16, Boxed Wholesale also will offer a 15% discount and free shipping on any PTA member’s first order.
