Box Tops for Education - Money in your Pocket Giveaway

s&h stamps
Remember S & H stamps? If not, then you are not old like me. Or you are not from America.

S&H stamps were given when you shopped at certain stores or bought certain things. Then you take them home, lick the toxic glue off the back and collect them in a special little book. Then you keep those little books until you have 3 kitchen drawers full of them and then you can trade them in for something wonderful. I'm pretty sure we got my mom's 1975 Vega with these stamps. We all loved that car.

I remember we had tons of these and I used to love the little books they went in and organizing them and flipping through them all, marvelling at all the treasures we could get with them. The book of awards was SO big (to my 3rd grader self). It was like the biggest book in the world.
Then there were the Betty Crocker coupons. Same type of idea.
And now there are Box Tops 4 Education, which has actually raised over $300 million for schools nationwide since 1996. $300 million can buy a lot of crayons, yo.

Every year, 24 million parents and children join in clipping Box Tops to support their local schools. To make it even easier to participate in the program, the SuperValu family of stores (ACME, Albertsons, Cub, Farm Fresh and Jewel-Osco) joined Box Tops for Education in creating a website that not only tracks your Box Tops contribution and the school’s redemption, but also offers recipes, coupons, store promotions and more.

From now through May 31, SuperValu stores and Box Tops for Education are giving you a chance to win 50,000 bonus box tops for your school. That’s a $5,000 value! All you have to do is register at http://www.growinglocallearning.com/, and click the link to the 50,000 bonus box tops sweepstakes*. You will automatically receive 5 Bonus Box Tops just for signing up!

*Note that the sweepstakes is void in some states. Visit http://www.growinglocallearning.com/ and view the sweepstakes’ official rules for more details. After you’ve entered the sweepstakes, browse the website where you’ll find a variety of great offers on your favorite General Mills brands including Betty Crocker®, Old El Paso®, Totino’s® Pizza Rolls® and Pillsbury®. Once you register you can also find recipes that will earn you even more Box Tops and you can access coupons for the latest deals at your local SuperValu store!

  1. Barbarawr said...:

    My kids are too old now, but I'm in the habit of collecting them, so I donate them to one of our schools that has a high percentage of special needs kids. The best I ever did was when I was working at the Food Bank one day and we had to put rice into zip loc bags. They were going to throw away all the boxes! So I asked if I could have the boxtop for education labels and they said yes. And as long as I was doing a good deed, I took all the empty boxes home with me and recycled them. I think they said we bagged 13 tons of rice that day. That's A LOT of zip loc bags and a lot of labels!
