My childrens’ school is one of the 80,000 k-8 schools that participate in Box Tops for Education™. We’ve collected and turned in Box Tops for years. When my oldest turns in bundles of 10 Box Tops, she gets what is called “Crusader Cash”, and once a month they can trade in their Crusader Cash for prizes. It’s always fun to try to bring in the most Box Tops. Now it’s time to teach my youngest about Box Tops for Education!

Box Tops for Education

Can you believe that Box Tops for Education has contributed over $525 million to participating schools since the launch of the program in 1996? That’s an amazing amount of money! We always shop with collecting Box Tops in mind and today was the first day I started making my youngest aware of Box Tops.


Box Tops is one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs.

Since Walmart has so many ways to earn even more cash for our school I decided to take Seanie there after school this afternoon. I put my son on a mission to find not only his favorite General Mills cereals but to also keep an eye out for Box Tops on other products for our family. The thing is, it’s really easy to find products with box tops! We regularly buy products with Box Tops, and many of the most popular family products — anything from cake mix to paper towels — have Box Tops on them. The trick is just to watch for them and remember to collect them! By purchasing products you are buy anyway, you aren’t even spending any extra money to make money for your school!

Box Tops are very important to our family and school. By simply collecting Box Tops, my kids’ school has been able to buy new computer for their computer lab, add playground equipment outside and start a cross country team. But that’s not it, there’s more, plenty more, and there will continue to be more, just as long as others clip and turn in their Box Tops.

Whether you are a rookie Box Tops user or a seasoned vet, start or continue to make a difference at schools in and around your community. Your children’s futures are bright, why not make their time in school even brighter?
