Safeway Back to School Giveaway

 *Giveaway is now closed. Stay tuned for winner announcement!*

Safeway Stores (including Dominick's, Tom Thumb, Vons and Genuardi's) have always been committed to helping family's save money. Now, they are helping our local schools as well by bringing two different programs together to help consumers help their favorite local schools. Safeway's "2 Ways 2 Earn" combines the Box Tops For Education program with the "10% Goes Back to Schools" program.


Box Tops for Education also recently made it even easier to earn for your school by including 4 new brands of products: Progresso Soup, Totino's Pizza, Betty Crocker Cake Mixes and Gold Medal Flour!

We can help schools even further by looking for the "10% Goes Back to Schools" yellow school bus tags on over 2000 products sold at Safeway until Sept 14. When you purchase these participating products with your Safeway Club Card, Safeway will give 10% of the purchase price back to the school of your choice!



Here's how it works!
  • Check your receipts from Aug 11-Sept 14. The total will be updated each time you shop.
  • Beginning on Sept 18, a redemption code will be printed on the bottom of your receipt.
  • Visit backtoschool.escrip.com before October 13 to choose your favorite participating local school. The enter your redemption code to make your donation!
 Super easy, right?! To learn more about these programs, visit 2ways2earn.com! Be sure to enter the Safeway Bonus Box Tops Sweepstakes for your chance to win 1,000 Box Tops for your local school while you're there too!

Safeway, General Mills and MyBlogSpark gave me the opportunity to try out the program by sending me a $25 Safeway gift card and a 50 Bonus Box Tops Certificate. The program really is just as easy as they say!

General Mills and the Safeway family of stores through MyBlogSpark want to give one of my readers a chance to earn some great rewards for their local participating school as well! They are offering one of my readers the same prize pack they sent me, a $25 Safeway giftcard and a 50 Bonus Box Tops Certificate to help you help the local school of your choice!

I entered the Sweepstakes as a part of another blog sweep, but it would also be really helpful for my school. I am sure they could use it to buy computers, books, or whatever they need!

My fave thing about fall -- now that's hard! It's my absolute fave season of all. I love baking, and the leaves, and the air, and well, everything! My fave thing about back-to-school is all the great box top sales :) Really, you can get such great deals during this time of year!

I entered because I want to get on the bandwagon to help schools by saving box tops. The schools in San Bruno, CA might need some help now that there was just a massive gas explosion. I will look into donating mine to a school close to that.

Tracy R said...

My favorite thing about fall is that is when we usually get our best weather in my area of northern CA!

Hi jodiBee :) Congrats on your blog - Love it! ( Yeah, I'm behind the times - you've probably had this blog for ages).
I'm entering so I can give the boxtops to my sisters - they fight over them so I have to split them evenly. They are collecting them for their kids' schools. The boxtops help their schools get those little extras that they need. It's a great program and I always try to purchase items that have them on the packaging.

I'm entering to win because with all the budget cutbacks, BTFEs are even more important to schools than ever. I try to do everything I can for our school, and this would be a huge bonus!

I entered because I like to shop at Safeway and would love the GC. I am excited to share the box tops with my son's school. Being that we had many funding cuts this year, every box top really helps.

I entered the sweepstakes because the economy has really had a negative impact on schools. Winning would help my local school continue the extracurricular activities it is struggling to keep.

Mari said...

I entered the sweepstakes so I can win those box tops for our local parochial school. I like that they instill morals and use discipline with the children. They subsists entirely by tuition and donations, and by the parents who volunteer. They could use the box top point to update their computer lab.
