Box Tops for Education

Box Tops and Labels for Education are "free" money and a way the kids can get involved in helping out the school. Thank you for taking the time to help them. It really makes a difference!


SCAN YOUR RECEIPTS IN THE APP when you buy participating products with traditional Box Tops clips to DOUBLE OUR EARNINGS (when you also turn in the clips), and with the new digital Box Tops labels. When scanning your receipts, tap the "CREDIT" BUTTON and enter your TEACHER'S LAST NAME. Also clip and save traditional Box Tops clips, which we will collect either at the February distribution day or in on-site classrooms if they resume by then. All of these will count for your class in the 2nd contest of this school year, ending in February 2021. The contest prize is to be decided by the teacher and their class and could consist of a virtual party, extra recess, etc.

Box Tops Gone Digital: Download the Box Tops App and Scan Your Receipt to Earn with Digital Box Tops, and DOUBLE Earnings with Traditional Clips

In the summer of 2019, participating brands started changing their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clip to the new digital Box Tops label.

Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. The Box Tops for Education team has built a new-and-improved, user-friendly Box Tops mobile app that you can download now.

The new app features state-of-the-art technology that allows you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to our school's earnings online.

Some brands have already updated their packaging. If you see the new Box Tops label on packages, you can use the Box Tops App to earn Box Tops for that product. Simply download the app, and sign up, setting TPES as your school, and scan your receipt WITHIN 14 DAYS to earn.

To count towards your class in the TPES contests, tap the "Credit" button at the bottom of the screen when scanning your receipt, and then enter your teacher's last name.
