Help Your Schools with Box Tops For Education Bonus #BTFE

Help Your Schools with Box Tops For Education Bonus #BTFE
I am working with General Mills on this post about how to help your schools with Box Tops For Education bonus boxes.

Since my kids started Elementary School, our family does our best to cut the Box Tops for school. My middle son had an added interest the last two years when he was involved with student government. It was his job to count each box top collected and make sure that it was not expired. I must say this can be a tedious job, both cutting and counting and was thrilled to see the box top bonus currently going on.


Here are some fun facts about Box Tops for Education®!  This program has  been helping schools succeed since 1996. With more than 250 participating products, it’s an easy way for the any parent association t to earn cash to fund programs and activities for your children’s schools   Think about it,  It’s just a piece of paper on a food container you may already have in your kitchen or in your weekly grocery cart. Saving those little Box Tops can add up quickly, particularly when everyone participates!

  • Each Box Tops coupon is worth 10¢ and they add up fast! 
  • Schools can use Box Tops cash to buy whatever they need most, from books to field trips to playgrounds.
  • Over 80,000 k-8 schools participate
  • Box Tops is one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs. 

Box Tops for Education® and General Mills is making it easier for you as a parent to earn cash for your schools. If you have been to a Walmart store as many times as I have this last month, getting school supplies and lunch making supplies, you may have noticed the displays of products offering the bonus 5 box top.

I took some pictures just in case you were so focused on the task at hand while navigating your way thru your school supply list with 3 kids in toe.


Many of the products offering this bonus are items we buy to pack lunches. These large packs are especially useful when supplying snacks for classes or sports teams.


We allow our kids to pick any cereal for their birthdays. I know my middle child was thrilled to hae the option of these double packs of cereal. At $5 it is really a great price too. 


You can even find some items in the refridgerated section of Walmart.


We will be sending in a lot more box tops this fall, just be sure to take the extra step to clip the bonus certificate too.

What would you like to see your school buy with these box tops? 

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of General Mills®. The opinions and text are all mine.



  1. I do enjoy the variety of products that feature boxtops. I don’t need to collect these for my daughter’s school but will share them with some friends who need them.

  2. That makes great sense to ask folks without kids to help out too

  3. A great way to increase your contribution when buying the same products you normally buy.

  4. This is such a good program, I love any companies that help out kids and their education.

  5. I remebr collecting these for son when he was in elementary school. Not o much now he is in high school

  6. I love to support the box top program. It makes good about helping the future generation get a bit more when it comes to their education.

  7. Aren’t the box tops the coolest? I love to give back without actually doing much extra.

  8. We’re big Box Top savers here. I collect them from our extended family as well. I’ll have to tell them to be on the lookout for these bonus ones!
