Download links will be available on your order summary page as soon as you complete your payment and will also be sent to you via your registered email address.

How do I find free materials?
We’ve made this very easy for you. On the sidebar, accessible from any page of our website, you will see a Freebies menu. Click on that and you will see all the materials that are available for free. Also, you can download the free materials directly from the product page by clicking on the 'Download worksheet here' link.
Does Teacher Aica have a rewards program?
Yes we do! Liking, sharing, and following our store on various social media platforms, signing up for an account, and purchasing products, all earn you stars that you can exchange for coupons to use in your next purchase. We also have a referral program where you and your referred friend can both have a reward. You can check out our Rewards page for more information.
How do I know how many stars I've earned so far?
When you open your rewards launcher (found at the lower left hand part of your screen), you will find your total earned stars at the top. You will also find on the launcher what coupon values you can purchase with your earned stars, how many referrals you've completed, and the list of coupons you've already purchased.
How do I purchase coupons with my stars?
On your rewards launcher (found at the lower left hand part of your screen), under the 'Next reward' header, you will see the highest coupon value you can purchase with your stars. You can purchase this by clicking the 'Buy' button beside it. However, if you want to purchase a coupon with a lower value, you can do so in the 'All rewards' menu.
Where do I find the coupons I've purchased with my stars?
Open your rewards launcher (found at the lower left hand part of your screen) and scroll to the bottom where you will see the 'Your rewards' header. Click on the header to see the coupons you've purchased. To use, open the listed coupon, click the 'Copy Code' button, and then paste it on the 'Discount' field during checkout.

What is a discount coupon?
A discount coupon is a code generated by the store to give customers a discount. It can be a percentage discount (e.g. 20%, 30%, etc.) or a fixed price discount and would usually have limits such as single use, or an expiry date. You enter the coupon code during check out to avail of the discount prior to paying for your purchase.
I am having challenges using a discount coupon, what should I do?
If you are receiving an error message or if there’s no discount being deducted from your total purchase amount, check your code if it’s still valid. It might have already expired or if it’s a single use coupon, you might have already used it before. If you’re sure that the coupon you’re having challenges with should still be valid, fill out a Contact Us form so we can assist you further.
Will my purchase be shipped to me?
The materials we sell are in digital format so no worksheets will be shipped to you. Instead, you will receive, via email, links where you can download your purchases. An exception to this are the toys and manipulatives that we will be selling pretty soon. When part of your cart, you will be asked to indicate your shipping address and a shipping fee will be added to your total purchase amount.
Will my download links expire?
No, it won’t. You will be able to download your purchased materials as often as you need to, for as long as you have the email we sent with the download links. If for some reason, you lose our email, you can fill out a Contact Us form to request for another email. We would suggest though that you keep a copy of your purchases on your computer so that you can print them at your discretion.
I can’t find the email with my download links, what should I do?
If you lose the email we sent, you can always request for another one. Just fill out a Contact Us form and we’ll resend the email with your download links.
Can I get a refund from the materials I purchased on Teacher Aica?
Majority of the materials we sell on Teacher Aica are in digital format and are delivered via download links. Unlike physical products that are delivered at your doorstep, you can’t really return digital files after you’ve downloaded them. As also stated in our Terms and Conditions, all sales of materials in digital format are considered final and are non-refundable.
There are a few instances though where we can issue a refund, although it would still be subject to our review at Teacher Aica. The possible exceptions are:

- If the downloaded file is damaged or is missing some or all content.
- If a material was accidentally purchased more than once.
