BOX TOPS PROCESS UPDATE

 

BOX TOPS CLIPS ON PACKAGES - 

You can still clip boxtops with valid dates and send them to school.  Physical Box Top clips are being phased out of production, but may continue to be found on many products throughout the store.

  • BUY Box Tops Products

  • CUT out the Box Top from each package (must have a valid expiration date)

  • SEND your Box Tops to school

    • Place in PTO mailbox in the office

    • Place in the collection buckets in the main entrance

    • Hand in to your teacher

HOW TO EARN WITH THE NEW PROCESS - 

No more clipping. No more sending Box Tops to school. All you need is your phone. Download the ALL-NEW Box Tops app, shop as you normally would, then simply scan your store receipts to find participating products. The app will automatically credit your school's Box Tops earnings online.

  • Go to the App Store on your phone

  • Search for BoxTops for Education

  • Download App

  • Sign up for an account (Birch Meadow School, school ID 132190)

  • Follow the tutorial to learn how to scan and earn

  • You Must scan a photo of your receipt within 14 days of your purchase

With your BOXTOP Submissions, twice a year, our school will receive a check and can use that money to support our many exciting programs for the students.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Katy LaPlant at kdufosse@netscape.net.
