Although I don't have kids in school, I have a few really good friends who are school teachers. One of them reminded me about the Box Tops for Education™ program. I remember participating when I was a little girl but wanted to learn more. I went here for more information. I found out that:
- Box Tops are worth $0.10 for your child’s school
- Box Tops is one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs.
- Over 80,000 k-8 schools participate
- Schools can use Box Tops cash to buy whatever they need.
- Box Tops for Education™ program has contributed over $525 million to participating schools since the launch of the program in 1996.
Then I went to Walmart and found that each of the specially marked boxes would earn my local schools 5 Bonus Box Tops! Look for specially marked packages at your Walmart! Buy one Box Top product and get an additional 5 Bonus Box Tops!
I love to save and make money, and this is truly an easy way to help out local schools. I simply bought products that are normally on my grocery list with coupons found at coupons.com and was able to save on the item itself.
At the same time, I was able to make my local school an extra money with the Box Tops and Bonus Box Tops!
I cut out the Box Tops and Bonus Box Tops and am taking them to my friend (a school teacher) to submit them at her school. With some other box tops I have I'll contribute over $4.00 to my school (on items that I would've purchased anyway). It's fun to think how many pencils or pieces of paper can be bought with $4.00. Every little bit makes a difference for our community schools.
Help your local schools out too by purchasing the 5 Box Tops items at Walmart and submitting them.
Here are some of the items that are offering the 5 Bonus Box Tops:
- Honey Nut Cheerios™
- Cinnamon Toast Crunch™
- Nature Valley Granola Bars®
- Yoplait® Yogurt Products
Make your local school money by taking part in the Box Tops for Education™ program.
