    Scan vs. On products

    I Love the this app program as it gives schools an opportunity to earn extra money for things they could not otherwise afford. I do however have a problem with them taking the this app off of products. A LOT of people do not have a way to scan receipts in to get points. I’m hearing a lot of complaints about the new way of doing things. With this app on products even the most reluctant will take a moment to tear them off the product and toss them into a cup or baggy out of the way until they see someone who is collecting them. With the new way even ppl with smartphones say “I’m not downloading another app!” Or “I’m too busy to bother with this!” Not too many people are willing to share their receipts so someone else can scan them either. I truly hope that you will find it in your hearts to go back to the ‘old way’. A lot of schools depend on this extra money during the school year. Thanks for listening, Brenda Hoppe

    Quick and Easy

    There has been a lot of skepticism with the new digital box tops program, but I’ve adjusted my routine (scanning the receipt when I unpack groceries) and I’ve found it to be a quick and easy way to earn money for my kids’ school. There are some kinks to work out, but any time I’ve had a problem Box Tops has made it right. There are growing pains to be sure, but overall the app has worked well for me. It would be nice to have an option to link to multiple schools and choose which to submit earnings to each time you scan, for families with kids in multiple schools that participate. ETA: the new give credit feature is great, but again it would be nice to be able to edit this field each time a receipt is scanned so credit can be given to a different class for multiple kids or based on different contest structures (sometimes our contests are run by class, by grade, boy v girl, or a different team system).

    The app is great, however... here’s a suggestion

    I love the idea of going digital. I have never had a problem with bugs or anything like that. However, I can’t help but feel like there were some things that weren’t thought of or thought through. For example, they make you choose one school to donate to, and that’s great if you only have one child but when you have multiple and some are in a different school, it’s hard to divide and share your earnings. The second thing I am not a huge fan of is, having to use the receipt. I like how it gets everything all at once, but there are some things that I buy that are personal and I am not a fan of sharing that. A suggestion I have is to put a barcode or something that we can scan on the inside of the box so people can’t just scan it while they are at the store.

    Pretty smooth

    I’m not normally one to adopt new technology quickly, but as a former teacher, I know how much needed money for supplies Box Tops for education has brought into the schools and I don’t want that opportunity to be lost. Scanning in the review is pretty easy- although it takes a minute or two, good eye sight, and a steady hand, but it is not as easy as tearing off a boxtop was. The good news is that they can’t expire this way, I can’t miss a few, and I don’t have to worry about the kids forgetting to turn them in on time. Still, I worry that many won’t take the time to adapt to the new method. If it were combined with coupons for boxtop products, I would be more likely to buy these products than their generic equivalents. A dime per product to the school isn’t enough to justify the (often) multiple dollar expense of the name brands over generics.

    Easy to use except with electronic receipts

    I like this new way to earn box tops for my school because I don’t have to stop and cut them from boxes and remember to take them to the teacher but I order my groceries to be delivered and as easy as it is to submit a picture of a paper receipt I don’t like that I have to email BTFE to get credit for the products I ordered. I don’t get an electronic receipt from Walmart necessarily it’s just a confirmation of what I ordered which they could substitute. I don’t get an email of what was delivered but I can screenshot from the Walmart app what was delivered and paid for if they would allow me to do that within the app instead of emailing it. Overall it’s a nice way to collect for the school but if they could fix the electronic receipt submission then it’d be perfect. I’ve also only had to email them for missing credits because it only credited me .10 when the promo on the box was for 4 so I’m not sure how they’d correct for products that have the 4X-10X or what have you promos.
