Campbell’s Labels for Education and Box Tops are two ways you can help local schools and get great coupons for yourself.

With Campbell’s Labels for Education, you can submit to your school the UPCs and beverage or sauce caps from more than 2,500 products. The UPC labels do not have expiration dates, so old labels will work.

Visit to register for coupon offers not typically found on or in newspaper inserts. There is also an opportunity to use online coupon codes to save money and add additional points to your school.

Ask any school-age children about Box Tops and they will immediately describe the pink logo found on most General Mills products. Turn in those Box Tops to your school for cash. Visit for more information, coupons and opportunities to earn bonus money for your school

Here are some ways to make the most of these programs:

Find one place in your kitchen to collect the labels or box tops. I use a Ziploc bag and a magnet on my refrigerator.

Make them look neat. Labels and boxtops must be trimmed to be submitted. Take time to properly prepare your submission.
