With the Back-to-School Season here, many of us with kids are purchasing school supplies and clothes for our kids, as well as looking for ways in which we can help our local schools.  One way in which I help my boys’ school is by collecting and donating Box Tops.  My boys are always excited to take the numerous Box Tops collected throughout the summer and give them to their teachers.  I in turn love knowing that products I buy on a weekly basis can not only be used to help my family, but can also be used to help my boys’ school.

Back-to-School shopping has never been so rewarding!  General Mills and Box Tops for Education have partnered with Jingit to make a difference in your local school.  You’re probably familiar with General Mills and Box Tops for Education, but are wondering who Jingit is?  Jingit is a tech start up company that allows great brands like General Mills to pay you real, instant cash for paying attention to them.  Because truly great brands should truly value  your time.  And with this limited time offer, no only will you earn by finding participating products in store and online, your designated school will receive Bonus Box Tops every time you do!

Here’s How It Works:

Whether you participate online or on your mobile device, you must first choose a school to donate your eBox Tops to when prompted if you want to unlock this earning opportunity.  But you only have to do it once.  Then it’s as easy as 1-2-3!

Step 1:  Sign up for Jingit HERE.  using this link.  Click the “Earn Now” button and then “Facebook Login” in the right-hand corner.  You will be prompted through sign-up and then to the Box Tops for Education school select pages.  You MUST choose a preferred school.

Step 2:  Download the Jingit app to your phone.  The Jingit app works on the iPhone and Droid phone iOS.

Step 3:  You can earn bonus Box Tops by checking in at your store and scanning bar codes for specific items.  You can also earn money by visiting online.  You’ll look for General Mills products and banner ads with a Jingit curl.  Every time you Jingit on, you’ll earn and donate more!

When I went to my local Walmart, I found several different products that were participating in the Jingit program and the Bonus Box Tops Program!  I selected for my purchase the following items: Honey Nut Cheerios, Gogurts, Yoplait Yogurt Packs, and Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks.

I couldn’t believe how easy it was to collect the Bonus Box Tops.  Within a matter of minutes, I had earned Bonus Box Tops and $2.00 to be donated to my sons’ school.  What an awesome way to give back to the school and take care of my family at the same time!  Our local school uses the Boxtops for new computers, reading programs, PTO activities, and more.  My boys love taking their Box Tops to their classrooms and it allows us to enjoy the feeling one gets when donating to help a good cause.  A big thanks goes to General Mills, Jingit, and the Box Tops for Education Program!
