Since I am a former elementary and middle school teacher of eight years, you can bet I know the importance of Box Tops for Education and how earning points can help out your school. The elementary school my kids go to (they are in grades K and 3rd) rely on parents sending in Box Tops to earn money for the school. We get worksheets sent home to us from the PTG so we can paste the Box Tops to them. There are contests between classrooms to see which class collects the most Box Tops, and the one with the most wins an ice cream treat. It’s such a great program and so helpful to the school.
We personally buy products that have the Box Tops for Education on them. We make sure to cut them out and turn them in, but now I’ve learned of a new way to get even more out of my purchases! I discovered on the Jingit app that I’ve been using to watch commercials and earn money, that I can now earn bonus Box Tops points by using my Jingit app on my iPhone while I’m shopping! How cool and easy is that to earn points for your school? I can’t wait until the next PTG meeting, because I’m going to tell all the parents there with iPhones and Droids to download the app and start getting more points for the school too! You can get the app online, download it on your phone from the app store, or you can even create an account online and watch commercials and answer questions to earn Box Tops for Education points at home on your computer! Make sure when you first sign in though that you choose your school!
It’s SO easy! Sign-in, watch a short ad, answer a couple of questions, and earn Box Tops points and real cash at the same time! I previously used Jingit before to earn cash on my phone for watching ads, and now I can earn Box Tops points too! Like I said, you can sit at home and watch some ads to earn points and cash from your own computer (see pic below):
Or you can use your app on your phone while shopping to earn points and cash too! Let me tell you, I did it yesterday while shopping for groceries and it made our shopping trip SUPER fun! My son and I had a BLAST finding Box Tops items to purchase, scanning in the barcodes of the items into the phone to get points, answering one short question about the item, and then we were done! Cash and points earned, and on to the next item! It was great because when we checked in on the app when we got to the store, it popped up a list of items we could purchase to earn points. Most of the items happened to be on our personal list anyway, so it was wonderful! If we are buying it, we might as well get Box Tops points and cash for doing so!
It was real easy to scan the items in on my iPhone too! I thought at first I would have to click a button, but all you need to do is hover your phone over the barcode and once it focuses on it the item will automatically register into your phone. My son had so much fun helping with this!
So remember, to help your school out with extra Box Tops for Education points, find Jingit online or download the app to your phone. Then watch ads, answer questions, earn points for your school, and earn cash for yourself too! Don’t forget to select YOUR SCHOOL when you first get the app to make sure it’s going to the right place! And when shopping have your phone with you! It’s as EASY as:
