No more clipping. No more sending Box Tops to school. All you need is your phone. With the Box Tops for Education app, you can turn your everyday receipts into cash for your school. Here’s how:

- BUY the Box Tops products you already know and love

- SCAN your receipt so that your Box Tops purchases are recognized

- EARN cash for your school, based on your eligible purchases

Twice a year, your school will receive a check and can use that cash to buy whatever it needs!

Super-charge your earnings with special bonus offers shown in the app. No need to pre-select or opt-in for these bonus offers, and you can stack as many as you like. Just buy the eligible products, scan your receipt, and watch the earnings stack up! And, in case you didn’t already know, here are some of the many Box Tops products that are probably already in your pantry: Cheerios®, Lucky Charms®, Cinnamon Toast Crunch®, Nature Valley®, Totino’s®, Old El Paso ®, Annie’s®, Yoplait®, Fiber One®, Chex®, Paper Mate®, Nestlé® Pure Life®, Lysol®, Boise® and more. Just look for the Box Tops label on the package. For a complete list of participating products, visit BTFE.com.

Psssst, just one last tip for you. Still seeing the traditional Box Tops clips on products you’ve bought? Most participating brands are allowing you to “double dip” by clipping unexpired traditional Box Tops to send to school AND scanning your receipt for double earnings!

Over the last 23 years, more than 70,000 K-8 schools across the U.S. have earned over $913 million through the Box Tops for Education program. With the new Box Tops app, you can be a part of the next evolution of the program – strengthening our schools for generations to come.

Glitches need fixing

I wasn’t thrilled to see this on a product I’ve bought regularly. The app is easy to use however crashed each time i tried to take more than two pics (adding more than two receipt sections). Literally the first time I used it it crashed twice. Third time worked because I didn’t line up the receipt edges. Needs to be fixed

Absolutely hate this app!!!!

The idea of having to scan one’s receipt instead of cutting individual Box Tops is great, *especially* because now teachers have one less stupid thing they have to do (like count Box Tops and send them in so the school can get a couple measly dollars). However, I have a large family so my grocery receipts are VERY LONG. This means I have to take an average of 8 screen shots for just one receipt which takes a hell of a lot longer than just cutting out a Box Top. On the scan of my first receipt, the app crashed three times making me have to start over. The three times I was able to completely scan my receipt, I got an error message each time and had to start over again for a total of scanning the same receipt SIX TIMES. When I finally got it scanned with no errors, it told me there are no products in my receipt that have Box Tops. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m already so done with this I think I’m going to give up on Box Tops completely. Too much work for waaaaaaaayyyyyyy too little benefit but I don’t want to go back to teachers having to do all this work either. I’d rather just give the school $100 a year and I guarandamntee that’s more money than the school makes on Box Tops from my family. Also, you can only choose ONE school to receive the benefits of your Box Top scanning. I have kids at more than one school so only one of my kids’ school is getting the menial benefits of this. It’s just not worth it.

Sorry to hear that you are having issues with the app. If you had items that were not read, just tap the "Report Missed Earnings" button and let us know what we missed. (occasionally, items may be missed and we apologize if that happens) You are able to support a different school for every receipt you scan - just change the school in your account settings and the earnings from your next scan will go to the school you have selected. If you continue to have issues scanning long receipts, please reach out to us directly at BTFE.App@genmills.com and we will help troubleshoot the issue.

Thank you for fixing your App!

I was so angry after buying the new containers of Yoplait because it said you needed the app to collect the Box Top points. I had only been able to add apps recently after a phone upgrade and I wasn’t able to get points for those Yoplait yogurts I bought with the app before this latest update. Yay! You fixed it so we can get Box Tops points for Box Top products that have changed over to online credit.
