Thank you!

Box Tops for Education

Get ready to turn in all those Box Tops you've collected over the summer!


Traditional Box Tops clips are being phased out of production, but may continue to be found on many products throughout the store. You can still clip and send them to school.

Every valid Box Tops clip is worth 10¢ for your school.

Make sure each one has a clearly visible product acronym and expiration date.

* All valid Box Tops clips submitted per the Program Rules by a Coordinator(s) of (an) eligible, enrolled school(s) will be honored.

Please clip them neatly and check the expiration dates.

If you can, please put them in baggies of 50.

Put your child's name, grade and teacher in the baggie. 



Eventually the Box Tops program will become digital-only.

Participating brands are starting to change their packaging from a traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Top label.

If you see this label, use the new Box Tops app to scan your receipt.

Box Tops are still worth 10¢ each for your school.

The app will find participating products purchased at any store and instantly add cash to your school's earnings online.


MORE CONVENIENT, Redeem anywhere, anytime within 14 days of purchase
EXTRA CASH, Access special bonus offers on top of your Box Tops earnings
REAL TIME, Your school’s earnings are automatically updated online
EASY TO USE, No more clipping or sending Box Tops to school

Don't forget, you can also earn points by shopping online as well, so you can keep helping our school!
