I love love love the Box Tops for Education program!  If you have not heard of it, it is a GREAT program to help you raise funds for your school at no cost to you!  I am sure you have seen them on General Mills products.  Those colorful logos telling you how many Box Tops you can earn are all over the place!  You can cut them out and hand them over to your school, earn them online and even earn them just by looking around and shopping on Walmart.com!

But my new favorite way to earn them is with JINGIT!   Jingit is a tech start up company that allows you to earn cash from awesome companies like General Mills just for taking the time to let them know you shop for their products!  But what makes this SO awesome right now is that you can earn 4 BONUS Box Tops just by using it to scan bar codes of participating General Mills products at Walmart!

Sound complicated?

It is SO not!

Walk with me here.

I went to Austin to visit my parents yesterday and dragged my poor, but very supportive, mother to Walmart to test this app!  My sister is a HUGE supporter of Box Tops for Education so I wanted to show my mom how it worked.  I left my sister at home with my 3 kids and her 2… all 8 and under.  That is what she gets for taking my Barbie when I was 9!

Just kidding… sort of.

Never the less, my mom – who was not camera ready, unfortunately – and I were very excited to shop and earn and earn for my school using Jingit.  I had already gone to the Walmart website and signed up for Jingit.  It was SO SO easy!  I just entered my info, chose my school and I was all set to go!  I spent some time playing around on the Walmart.com website with the Jingit app.  By doing this, I was already earning money before I even left for the store!

Next, I went to the iTunes store and downloaded the FREE Jingit app to my phone.  Jingit works on iPhone and Droid phones with iOS.  It took no time to download, sign in using Facebook and click the Check In button.  Once the list of ‘Check in’ Items popped up, I could choose the items that I would buy anyway, scan the bar codes and earn REAL CASH!  PLUS, I earned 4 BONUS Box Tops for my school, too!

Seriously, how cool is that? Especially since right now on select General Mills products, you can earn 4 Box Tops for Education!  Yep -that is right!  4 Box Tops on selected products!  So very cool!
