Box Tops Is Going DIGITAL!
*But you can still send in unexpired paper box tops until they are phased out. See info below*
How does the NEW digital program work?
Download the ALL-NEW Box Tops app, shop as you normally would, then simply scan your store receipts to find participating products. The app will automatically credit your school’s Box Tops earnings online. No more clipping. No more sending Box Tops to school. All you need is your phone.
Twice a year, your school will receive a check and can use that cash to buy whatever it needs!
HOW IT WORKS (DIGITAL LABELS)
- BUY BOX TOPS PRODUCTS
Look for the logo. You can find it on hundreds of products you know and love.
- SCAN YOUR RECEIPT
No more clipping. Tap the scan button and snap a photo of your receipt within 14 days of purchase.
- EARN CASH FOR YOUR SCHOOL
It’s that easy! Box Tops earnings are identified and automatically updated online.
How does the paper Boxtops program work?
You can still clip them and send them to school. Physical Box Top clips are being phased out of production, but may continue to be found on many products throughout the store. Send your clipped Box Tops, along with any unexpired clips you may have at home, to your child’s crew teacher.
- BUY Box Tops Products
- CUT out the Box Top from each package
- SEND your Box Tops to school
HOW IT WORKS (PAPER BOX TOPS LABELS)
Send in your Box Tops any time with your student. You don’t have to wait for the contest to be announced. They will still count. Just put them in a plastic baggie and label the bag with his or her grade level. There are Box Top boxes in each classroom. Your student’s teacher can point them out to your kid if they don’t already know about them. Grades compete for a prize, usually an ice cream party or something similar. There are also prizes for the student who brings in the most Box Tops. When contest time rolls around, we will post an announcement to the Monday Minute, so be sure to sign up to follow the PTO blog so you can receive updates automatically. We will also post the contest winners.
Do I have to trim Box Tops?
No, but it is helpful to have as little cardboard as possible attached due to weight. We have to pay for postage when we mail in the thousands of Box Tops we collect each year.
What if I don’t eat any of the food or use any of the products that have Box Tops?
There are still ways you can help. Try one or more of the following:
Ask grandparents, aunts, friends, etc. if they would collect Box Tops for you.
Sometimes you can get a surprising amount that way.
