Do you clip those little Box Tops labels that you see on certain foods? If you’ve got a school-aged kiddo I’ll bet you have a big pile of them in a drawer somewhere. I clipped them for a long time and gave them to friends with older children, but I never really knew what they were for or why I was doing it. I knew it earned money for school but I wasn’t quite sure how.
In a nutshell, each of these little coupons earns your school 10¢ and they are free to use the amount however they need. Today, I’m going to show you how to get bonus Box Tops!
How To Get More Box Tops
1. Ask Your Family. Let everyone in your family (even relatives that live far away) know that you’re collecting Box Tops to turn in for your school. They will love feeling they are helping!
2. Ask Your Coworkers. Before I had kids I used to give mine to a woman I worked with all the time. Just like family, coworkers will enjoy helping you.
3. Check all of your packages. Just today I almost through something away that had a Box Top on it. I had no idea it was there! Remember, they are not just on boxes but also on cans, bags, toiletries, even produce.
4. Get bonuses! Several of the General Mills participating products have FOUR bonus Box Tops on each box. That makes five total! All you need to do, is look for the special label when you’re shopping.
If you buy a box of cereal for instance, if you purchase the larger size box, you’ll get 5 Box Tops instead of just one. It’s such an easy way to raise money for your school – just keep buying the things you normally buy!
We grabbed a few things at our last trip to Walmart and just with three boxes of our favorite things we got 15 Box Tops.
Box Tops for Education has contributed over $525 million to participating schools since they started. That’s a lot of money! Get your family involved and start earning.
