Every qualifying product from your purchase will result in a rebate that is automatically sent to CSA! This video shows the step-by-step process to install and use the app.

And right now, Box Tops is having a sweepstakes to double the amount of money CSA receives AND win a $20,000 make-over for CSA (not that our beautiful new school needs it. Until the printed Box Tops are completely phased out, please continue to clip and collect Box Tops and send them to school with your student.
