Box Tops for Education

Are you familiar with this logo? I know I am, we collect Box Tops for our school. My kids can spot the logo a mile away. Most schools run a program and all you do is cut the box top off the products you purchase and send them into school. The school then redeems the box tops for money.

Well, Box Tops for Education now has a marketplace where you can shop and earn additional money for your school. I really like the layout, it's very user friendly. They also have a few stores that I can't get money back from anywhere else. So, I can shop at Staples through the marketplace and the school gets credit! There are a number of stores to choose from. You can check out Box Tops for Education here, or visit the marketplace directly here. It's an easy way to help your school raise money!

Guess what else? Box Tops for Education is going to sponsor my first giveaway! To get you into the holiday shopping spirit I'll be giving away a $50.00 gift certificate to the Box Tops for Education marketplace. Keep checking back as I hope to have this giveaway up and running soon!!!
