box tops for education (with giveaway)
of course when we go to sam's we have to buy the super large box of cheerios. with 3 kids (and bill!) having heaping big bowls of cereal every morning, it is hard to stay stocked up on cheerios.
to make me feel a little better about the cost, i always make sure to clip the "box tops" off the box of cheerios. with schools all over chicago facing serious budget cuts, i am happy to do what i can to support the schools the kids attend. what better way to help than to take something we are already purchasing and add to the funds their schools get?
for a short time, sam's club is helping us help our schools even more. from now through august 13, as long as supplies last, if you upgrade your sam's club membership to a "plus" membership, you can receive a gift certificate for 150 box tops for the school of your choice.
in addition, now through august 31, general mills is offering a bonus of 6 box tops on selected items. obviously, this is a great time to stock up on necessary items in a way that can benefit education in your area.
as if that weren't enough, one reader can receive a $25 gift card to sam's club. just leave me a comment here telling me your absolute must-have sam's club item. i will choose a winner using random.org on august 15.
i received an upgrade to a "plus" membership at sam's club, a $25 sam's club gift card and a gift card to giveaway from general mills and my blog spark for the purpose of this review. regardless, the thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.
