My Experience with My First Purchase on Box Tops for Education Marketplace
I thought I’d try the Box Tops for Education Marketplace out for myself. The process was smooth, and it only took a few minutes to enroll. On an electronics purchase at Barnes and Noble, I earned 6 box tops for each $10 I spent (the deals differ for each retailer). I spent $200, so that means my daughter’s school earned 120 box tops, each worth 10 cents, for a total of $12.00! Wow! SO…if 1/2 of the 700 families in my daughter’s school made similar purchases, that would mean $4,200 for her school!! That’s what I call easy money for a good cause!
