As we get into the full swing of Back to School mode many schools utilize the Box Tops for Education program in order to gain necessities for their school. Did you know that there is a fabulous app that allows you to earn extra box tops when you scan items that you purchase in the store? It is called Jingit, and I was happy to test it out this week! Not only can you earn extra box tops for the school but you earn money too! Yes, you get paid to shop!
All I did was download the app and select the school I wanted to donate to. Then, as I was shopping at Walmart, I scanned the bar codes of the participating items. By scanning the bar codes you are donating box tops to your school of choice and you are earning money for purchasing the products.
As I was shopping through Walmart I found it was easy to find the participating products because at my store they all seemed to be on end caps and center aisle displays. The end cap of Honey Nut Cheerios was fabulous because they also had a video showing what it meant to be apart of the Box Tops for Education Program.
Many of the items that you can earn and donate from are items that you would likely purchase anyway for a snack or your childs lunch, such as Fruit Roll-Ups and Fruit Snacks!
My husband and son were more than happy to donate and earn since that meant they got a box of Fruit Rollups! To see my entire shop and more on Box Tops for Education and Jingit head over to my Google + Album.
As soon as I found the items I needed, I simply hit ‘check in’ and scanned the bar code then cha-ching! The school gets Box Tops, and I get money back for purchasing the items.
For our family Box Tops for Education is very important because the school my son will be attending uses that as additional funds to purchase items to help the children. As with many families, we can not afford to give a large financial donations or lump sums but we do buy groceries regularly and purchasing items that allow for us to give back to the school is a great way that we can help out too!
In times such as these where many schools are struggling financially it is vital that as parents we help out as much as we can and using Jingit and Box Tops for Education program is a great way bless the school your child attends!
Now it’s time to sign up and start earning money and donating with Jingit, head on over to Walmart to learn more and watch the video on how to earn and donate. Then, go to Jingit and download the app and start scanning, earning, and donating! Also be sure and follow along on Twitter at #Jingit4Edu and on Facebook!
