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.
