sam’s club + box tops {giveaway!}

Update! The randomly chosen winner is Kristin K! Congrats!

I know all of you have seen those bright pink Box Tops on products that you probably purchase on a weekly or monthly basis. But do you take the time to cut them out? Did you know that your children’s (or nieces, nephews, friend’s kids) schools can actually receive cash in return for you taking a few seconds to clip those Box Tops? It may not seem like much, but trust me, those things add up.

Public Service Announcement: Please trim Box Tops on the dotted lines. Because, somewhere, at some time, someone has to do it. Most likely it will be a PTO volunteer for your child’s school who has a gazillion classrooms’ Box Tops to “trim”, so just take the time and do it yourself. Just sayin’.

We’ve been collecting and stashing Box Tops all summer long, saving up for next week when school resumes. This year, Sam’s Club and Box Tops are teaming up to bring you the “6 Box Tops on a Pack” promotion. You can find the promotional Box Tops on such General Mills products as Honey Nut Cheerios, Nature Valley Oats ‘N Honey Crunchy Granola Bars, Totino’s Pizza Rolls, and more!

In order to help with your back-to-school shopping and box-top-collecting, I have a $25 Sam’s Club gift card to give away to one lucky reader! To enter, leave a comment below telling me what you are most looking forward to with the start of the new school year! For extra entries, tweet and/or post on Facebook about this giveaway! THREE ways to enter, just make sure you come back and leave a comment for each entry!

Contest will run through Tuesday, August 23rd at 11:59 p.m. One winner will be selected via random.org and announced the following day! Good luck!

Disclosure: The Sam’s Club gift card, information, and giveaway have been provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.

    I’m looking forward to sending my new kindergartner to bed at the same time as his little brother so I can enjoy some quiet time.  And that he’ll also make some new friends.  But most of all the early bedtime :)

    • http://www.whereverimaywander.com Lissa_ShrinkingJeans

      ENJOY!! That part is awesome. I look forward to the earlier bedtimes, too. I love that hour of ME time at night.

    Lissa don’t enter me in the giveaway, I don’t have a Sam’s Club membership, but I am looking forward to seeing how Adam handles all day school. In K he was half day, so this will be interesting. And BTW I did not know I should trim them, I will from now on. The kids and I have been doing box tops for a long time and a member of the site. We have a nice little stash for back to school!

    I am looking forward to seeing my first grader’s face when she comes home and can’t wait to tell me what she learned that day. It melts my heart. :)

  • Nancy

    I am anxious to go back to school to get back into a routine.  I love summer, but i do so much better when we are in a good routine.  I get so much more done then.

    I have four daughters and two of them will be in school this year. I am looking forward to seeing them compare work and their excited reactions to going everyday. I won’t lie, I am also going to be thankful for some more quality time with my younger two daughters.

    I excited for the calm, the routine, and getting rid of my saved box tops!

    I cannot believe I am saying this but I NEED to go back to school! I struggle with my motivation when I have no schedule. I need the schedule and routine of school days.

    Since I homeschool, starting school takes on a bit of a different meaning for me than most of the rest of y’all but what I am looking forward to most is LEARNING WITH my son! That is the best part of homeschooling to me! I get to learn right along with him!

    Ok, would it be “bad” to say that I am looking forward to some quiet time for myself?

    I am looking forward to getting a small amount of time to myself now that all four of the children will be in school at least part time :) I know that is selfish but we all have our moments.

    I am also looking forward to seeing my children make friends, mature and grow more fully into the amazing adults that I know they will be come some day

    um…i enjoyed getting the princess and little man here in town for the week before school. their parents are both teachers and have to go back a week early, so the kids get one last hurrah with baby, gaga, and boo.

    Well, with all my children grown and living at least 20 miles away, I guess I’m looking forward to a quiet neighborhood.  But not totally, because for the most part, I enjoy the neighborhood children.  lol

    I’m looking forward to having some one on one time with my 14m old while the big kids are in school.
