Back-To-School with General Mills and Walmart

I am so excited to announce to you a back to school giveaway opportunity offered to me by General Mills.  General Mills sponsors the Box Tops for Education program on their products.  We all shop for groceries each week and you can turn that shopping into easy cash for your school by looking for the Box Tops for Education logo on a General Mills product.   

During August 3rd-31st General Mills is offering 4 box tops on some participating products to earn even more cash for your school.

General Mills through My Blog Spark supplied me with a $25 gift certificate to Walmart and they would like to supply one of my lucky readers with a $25 gift certificate to Walmart too. 


I took my gift certificate and bought all the items you see in this picture.  I will be sending most of this into my 5 year-old's kindergarten class for snack time.  


General Mills also added boxtops to this 3 pack of Kleenex too and I will be sending that into my son's class also.

Now to enter the giveaway::
  •  Leave a comment on this post telling me what General Mills items you plan to purchase at Walmart  with this gift certificate or...
  • Leave a comment telling me during the month of August what must-have item you will be purchasing at Walmart for this back-to-school season.
That's it.  Just comment as noted above. You do not have to blog to win, but I do need a visible email somewhere.  You can comment as many times as you would like. The giveaway will last from August 11th- August 16th.  The winner will be drawn using random.org.  Winner will be announced on this blog August 17th.  If the winner doesn't respond to the email by August 23rd a new winner will be chosen.  General Mills will mail the gift certificate to the winner.
So comment away to win!
* Gift Certificates and information given to me by General Mills through My Blog Spark.
 This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered!

We've saved Box Tops for our schools for years- it's a wonderful program! Having 6 kids we always have a ton of back to school shopping. This would go towards a knapsack or school supplies! Thanks so much

Ann said...

I love Wal-Mart and have 2 within 8 miles of my home...each in different directions. So when I decide to go to Wal-Mart the choice has to be, which one. I have to say that is a nice choice to make. We just moved from a small town where I had to drive 26 miles to get to the nearest Wal-Mart. Now to your question...my son's love the General Mills Fruit snacks, Honey Nut Cherrios and each of their teachers have asked for Kleenex, so I think that those items would be my top purchases.
Thanks for the opportunity to win.
Fondly,
Ann
