While everyone is getting their shop ready for the big sale....you might be one of the ones that is still wondering how to participate. Don't worry. I was right there with you. Seriously.
So in an effort to not "reinvent the wheel"...I've taken the liberty to just link some great threads and info for you that I found very useful.
And please...if you have any questions about how the sale works...the forums on TpT are always there for you! There are a couple threads already on there that have been started by people with questions...just add yours!
The sale is this week on Tuesday and Wednesday (May 7-8). The promo code (for customers) is TAD13.
If you want to add more of a discount besides the site's 10% discount, you need to go to the "Throw a Sale" section in your dashboard. It will walk your right through it...very user friendly!
From the newsletter:
Teacher Appreciation Site-Wide Sale
|It's coming! It's coming! The next two-day sale is May 7-8 (beginning at
12:01 EDT on Tuesday morning and ending at midnight in Hawaii on
Wednesday night). We ask that you hold off promoting the sale until
Sunday, May 5, and then promote like crazy!
We are offering a promo code for 10% off, which will be in addition to the up-to-20% you can take off your products. That means up to 28% off 1000s of products. (The reason it's up to 28% off and not 30% is because our 10% comes off your already discounted prices.) Our Promo Code is TAD13.
Tip: If you notice that your sale doesn't "stick" or not all of your chosen products are appearing on sale, delete and reset your sale until it displays properly.
Almost all of the Top Sellers will be participating and heavily promoting this sale. You can promote it by placing the sale banners on your blogs, Facebook page, Pinterest, Twitter, etc. The more you promote it, the better everyone will do. We will announce it in the Sunday, May 5 "10 FREE Downloads" newsletter.
Sellers have found that joining the rare site-wide sales is a great way to get new followers, feedback, and, most especially, record-breaking sales.
And here are some good links to look over the next couple of days:

Hope this helps some! Good luck and much success to you and your store during this big event!
