Sam's Club and Box Tops for Education

All of my long time followers know that I am a Sam's Club junkie.  I have had a membership for many years and am always trying to win gift cards that other bloggers are giving away.  While not all of their items are great deals, the snacks, frozen food items and ICEEs make it well worth the trip for our family.  In addition, I really enjoy just browsing the store to see the new and seasonal items they bring in.

For those of you that aren't currently Sam's Club members, you should really stop by this weekend.  Sam's is offering a weekend of shopping without the usual upcharge on August 6th - 8th.  This would be a great opportunity for you to try out Sam's and see how much money you could save by becoming a member.   Take a calculator so that you can compare costs, and be sure to check out every department.  You'd be surprised at the items you can find at Sam's.

In addition to the open house, Sam’s Club is also giving you the opportunity to earn Box Tops for Education when you upgrade to a “Plus Membership".  If you have school-aged kids, I'm sure you've heard of Box Tops for Education.  Around our house, we guard those Box Tops like they're gold.  Every time the kids see a box of General Mills Cereal or a bottle of Juicy Juice, they shout, "Don't throw it away mommy, its a Box Top!"  From August 6 – August 13, or while supplies last, you can visit the Member Services Desk of your local Sam’s Club and receive a certificate for 150 Bonus Box Tops with your Plus Membership payment.  Now that is a whole lot of Box Tops! 

Sam's Club is also having a Back-to-School event from August 11 through August 31 where you can earn more cash for your school.   Participating General Mills products will have 6 Box Tops for you to clip and save.  I don't know which products this will include, but I'm really hoping to find some on the individual serving size boxes of Chex Mix.   Those are one of our favorite travel snacks!   For more information on how you can take advantage of the Back-to-School event at Sam’s Club, visit www.samsclub.com.

Now that you've read all my thoughts and opinions on Sam's Club and Box Tops for Education, I'd love to hear yours.  Just for sharing your thoughts, you have a chance to win a Sam's Club gift card for yourself.

  88. Oh, Oh! Awesome giveaway, rmgm! I saw your tweet and figured this would be a great one to try to win (I totally would give this to my mom - I buy Sam's membership every year just so she can shop til she drops there lol). Hubby and I always buy Kleenex and Ziploc's there (they have boxtops on them) but I don't know what other products have them. (we don't shop much at all lol) Thanks for the giveaway! @yoguilly ( *waves* )
