While summer just kicked off, I’m thinking about getting ready for back to school. Did you know you can earn eBoxTops when you shop online through Box Tops for Education® Marketplace®?
The Marketplace offers the gateway to major retailers like Target, Toys R Us, Wal-Mart and Macy’s, and specialty shops like Oriental Trading Company, Build A Bear Workshop and Young Explorers. There’s a huge selection of stores to shop at. Plus, when you shop the Marketplace, there are a list of deals and coupon codes to save you even more money (which is a great thing).
The first thing you need to do is to sign up for an account. Then, designate a school that will automatically receive points from your online purchase. I chose my son’s NYC public school, which my daughter will also attend this fall. Then the fun part! What to buy? I shopped at the Starbucks Store and was happy to know that by shopping online, I was helping their school. While I do collect box tops also and send them in, this was so much easier (since I didn’t have to keep track of them).
Box Tops for Education and its online Marketplace have helped nearly 90,000 schools across the country earn more than $525 million since the program started in 1996. Box Tops earnings are unrestricted dollars that schools can use for whatever they need most — from textbooks, laptops and musical instruments, to playground equipment, field trips and basic classroom supplies.

Plus, there are sweepstakes, party ideas, and coupons (for products with Box Top, that you can print out).
