Sam's Club Giveaway Benefiting Box Tops for Education

We’ve been reading about how schools all over the country have been suffering economic difficulties. Some have closed their doors, while others limp along using outdated equipment and with a shortage of teachers. Bilingual programs especially have struggled, many of them cut completely from schools due to lack of funding.

But there is one great way that you can help your school.

Twelve years ago, General Mills launched Box Tops for Education in California on Big G cereals like Cheerios®, Total®, Lucky Charms® and other family favorites. Since then, the number of participating products has grown by leaps and bounds. To date, Box Tops has helped America's schools earn over $250 million. Your school can earn up to $60,000 every year! Check out these easy ways to earn:

♥ You can clip 10¢ Box Tops coupons from hundreds of your favorite products such as Cheerios®, Betty Crocker®, Juicy Juice®, Ziploc®, Kleenex®, Hefty® and more!

♥ At the Box Tops Marketplace, you can shop at over 70 online stores like Oriental Trading Co., Office Depot and Lands' End. A percentage of purchases goes back to your school!

♥ You can earn cash for your school just by buying the books that you love! Begin your shopping at the Box Tops Reading Room to earn up to 6% on purchases made at Barnes & Noble.

My Class Essentials is a new way to help classrooms get the learning tools and supplies students need while earning 2% cash back for your school with every purchase.

To make the process even more enjoyable for young children, you can print a collection worksheet for your niños to color and fill with Box Tops you clip, or help them make their very own collection container.

And to make mamás happy, the BoxTops4Education web site has a whole page of coupons for participating products that you can print off.

This year, Box Tops for Education and Sam’s Club are lending a hand with their BIG CLIP campaign. From now through September 4th, you can get more Box Top coupons on your favorite back-to-school brands at Sam’s Club to maximize the earnings for your school. In addition, BT4E is giving away 1 million Bonus Box Tops for America’s schools! You can also enter The Big Clip sweepstakes for a chance to win the Grand Prize of 500,000 Bonus Box Tops or one of two first prizes of 250,000 Bonus Box Tops.

Participating brands include: Cheerios, Ziploc containers & sandwich bags, Honey Nut Cheerios, Pillsbury Chocolate Chip Cookies, Fiber One Oats & Chocolate Bars, Nature Valley Bars, Scott Paper Towels, Huggies Baby Wipes and Kleenex Facial Tissues. For a complete look of Box Top products, click here.
Overall, what a great program! I do think they are missing a great opportunity, though by not marketing to Latinos. They should publish portions of their web site and box tops in Spanish!


To help your children’s school, Sam’s Club and Box Tops for Education are giving me FIVE one-day passes and one $25 Sam’s Club gift card. The first five readers to leave me a comment about their favorite product participating in the Box Top program will win a one-day pass and one of you will win the gift card!

The deadline is this Thursday, August 27th at 11:59 pm EST. I’ll announce the winners Friday morning.

¡Buenas suerte!
