Go Digital With The New Box Tops App

This post is sponsored by General Mills and Nestle, but all opinions are my own.

Over the last decade, I have clipped and snipped tens of thousands of Box Tops for Education for my children’s schools.  When my son was in early elementary school, I was the Box Tops Coordinator for the PTA for two years.

During this time, we raised well over $7,000 and used the money to help buy Chrome Books for the students, purchase a new marquee for the front of the school building and pay for our annual school-wide campout. Box Tops has just done something amazing that has helped busy parents like myself, BOX TOPS HAS GONE DIGITAL! No more clipping required.

Are you looking for new a and creative ways to raise money for your school's PTA? Check out the new Box Tops For Education App available for iPhone and Android! It's now easier then ever to clip and snip Box Tops for your school and encourage families to participate..

This year my son will be in junior high and I plan to continue to support the Box Tops Program at his new school with as much gusto as I did in years past.  My daughter is also attending a new school this year.  She is going to a local homeschool campus that is collecting Box Tops for the first time.  Since this will be their first year, I plan on helping out and showing the parents how to download the new Box Tops App and and use it.  It’s super easy!

New Box Tops Digital Program 

Like I said, Box Tops has officially gone digital!  At its core, the program and purpose will remain the same; to help schools raise money for their student body and purchase items that they need.  But now, instead of clipping, all Box Tops will be earned digitally via a scanned receipt.

With the click of a button, people can now download the new and improved, user-friendly Box Tops app, register and select a school, and then scan an eligible receipt containing Box Tops products.  And you still earn 10 cents for each Box Tops product purchased plus extra earnings for any Bonus Box Tops opportunities.

The app will automatically add Box Tops to your school’s earnings online, giving visibility to see how you are supporting your school in real-time.  The new technology will also help save the sanity of Box Tops Coordinators from having to check for expiration dates and count and bundle clippings for hours and hours on end.

Even better, Box Tops will continue to honor all physical clippings until they reach their expiration dates.  So, please carry on and continue to send in all your clippings to the Box Tops Coordinator at your local school.

How do you use the Box Tops App

For the staff lounge at my daughter’s school, I wanted to surprise the teachers with a pantry full of tasty goodies and treats.  My daughter and I had a fun time pushing the shopping cart up and down the aisles at Sam’s Club, while picking out what we wanted to put in the pantry.
