Box tops for Education

Box tops is now moving towards an electronic format.  The phase out has started and during
this phase out we can actually receive double!  The way to do this is continue to clip the old
box tops.  The new ones say “scan your receipt”. However, if the product you purchase has a
box top you clip, you can clip it AND scan your receipt! We will get double credit!  Continue to
clip valid, non expired box tops and place in a baggie.  Send to school with your child and have
them place them in the Box Top Bot.
Please take advantage of this new scanning program, follow this link:
The app is available for Apple and Android.  Just search for Box Tops for Education.
Place the app on your phone, when signing up choose Buffalo Trail Elementary as your school.
Scan your receipt.  It’s that simple. If there is a BOX TOP product on the receipt, the app will
find it and give us credit. ONE CATCH: YOU HAVE TO SCAN THE RECEIPT WITHIN 10 DAYS. 
So we will not be able to accept receipts at the school. Thank you!!!
