Many of you got a fun new rebate yesterday for Box Tops for Education.  When you purchase 10 participating products you can get either a $10 visa gift card or 100 box tops for your school.

Sounds awesome right?  There is one snag the fine print on this rebate states that it is only for the folks that got the rebate form in their email.  You can easily find the form on General Mills’ site, but I don’t know that I would waste the time doing the rebate if you didn’t get the email.

So go check your email and see if you got it!

(thanks to everyone that emailed!)

      As I kick myself reading this, I got the email yesterday. I skimmed the subject line and deleted it thinking it was no big deal. I've learned my lesson. :(

      • Rhonda Daily

        check in your deleted file, it might still be there.

      • Jennysr624

        Check the trash box of your email unless you emptied that too.

      • Bree

        It might still be in your trash if you didn't empty it. Funny, I just did the same thing this morning – deleted dozens of emails I haven't had the time to read – and thanks to Southern Savers' post, I was able to 'save' my Box Tops offer and retrieve it. I learned my lesson and will never trash a Box Tops email without reading it first!

      Thanks, I checked my email thoroughly and I did get one !!

      Ohh, I've already tucked some coupons away that will work with it! I'm aiming for for “free”, but a money maker would be fun! Anxious to see what the prices will be for the Kroger Mega Event….

    • Anybody know what address the message came from? I could have sworn I saw something about box tops in my e-mail over the last couple of days but I've searched every way I can think of and can't find it now.

    • When I tried to log in it tells me I am not eligible! BOO

    • Rhonda M

      I received the email, but when I clicked the link to get started, it told me I'm not eligible for the promotion. Well, why did I get an invite if I can't go to the party?! I've emailed customer service, so maybe they can fix it. :)

      That would be awesome for my daughter's school if a good number of parents were able to do the rebate! I didn't get the email but I will get with the school Box Top chair person and maybe she can send a notice out when they have the next context. 100 Box Tops=way more fun than a $10 rebate! I love promotions that aim to benefit the community.

      Got the email but when I tried to print the form it cut off the right side and the bottom. I wasn't allowed to print the form again. Do you have to purchaase all 10 items in one transaction?

      • Mel

        Same thing happened to me. I emailed corporate. Guess I'll see what they say. Obviously, I could fill in the rest of the form, but it cuts off my automatically entered email address, so that's the biggest problem.

        • Alanakaye

          Sign out of the email and reopen. Then right click and print picture. My husband is a genius!

      • I set it to print the size of the page.

    • Lanavdixon

      I hate rebates that require you to hack up the packages for the UPC's and send them in. What will I do with Grands! biscuits out of their pop n fresh package! LOL I don't think they were thinking about that!

    • Tasha

      Thanks so much! I might have missed this blended in with the junk. The irony is that I'm going to school with DS tomorrow morning to count BTFE's! They're having a contest, and they have to be counted by boy/girl for each homeroom. I'm really looking forward to helping out with it!

    • jessc5

      HOT TIP!! “Note – form prints odd – doesn't fit on one page. Right click on 'image' – select Print Picture and then print.”

      I got the email. Kinda wish I had waited to shop at Rite Aid this week – I picked up the BC Cookie pouches and BC Frosting there. Not 10 items worth, but a significant amount.

      And I agree with the UPC thing – who wants to hack up the packages on the items that are perishable? What am I supposed to do with the cookie mix if I want the UPC but am not cooking with it right away?

    • Sdavisva

      Did anyone find the list of 100 participating products?? I emailed the company on Thursday, but I haven't heard back. Thanks!

    • Idea: Buy 10 Fruit Snacks at Kroger Use 5 .50/2 MQs get $3 off instantly and $3 Cat printed. Then it is ok to cut out the UPCs because the snacks are individually wrapped.

      How would I have gotten this email? Would I have had to register for BTFE somewhere?

    • Kevin S

      I messed up and bought only 9 items between 2 receipts. Would anyone happen to have an extra receipt with just 1 of the qualifying items plus the UPC code for it? Would hate to lose out on this for me and the school. Thanks!
