Shop Once. Give Twice. ($25 GC Giveaway - Closed)

Like most parents I know, we collect Box Tops for Education from General Mills products. A few years ago I was the Box Tops coordinator for our homeschool group, and I was pleasantly surprised to see how quickly those funds accumulated!

If you do your grocery shopping at ShopRite, you now have a way to give back to your community in two ways:  by multiplying the Box Tops value for your school and also by supporting ShopRite Partners in Caring--a community-based, hunger fighting initiative that works to provide $2 million annually to charities that aid those in need.

This is how it works (see the complete details, restrictions, and limitations at Shop Once. Give Twice):
  1. Register at the website with your ShopRite Price Plus Club card.
  2. Purchase 5 Participating Products on or before the end of each month using your ShopRite Price Plus Club Card.
  3. Give:  Based on your qualifying purchase at checkout, 5 Bonus Box Tops ($.50 value to participating school) will be electronically added to your school's Box Tops earnings AND $.55 will be donated to the ShopRite Partners in Caring Fund (a component fund of the Community Foundation of New Jersey). Limit two redemptions/donations per month per registered ShopRite Price Plus Club Card.
These are the products that I purchased:
I'm not sure whether the Cinnamon Burst Cheerios will count as a Participating Product for February.  I believe they were displayed with a shelf tag for this program, but I don't see them on the product list.  However, the other five items pictured are definitely on the February list.

But wait ... there's more!  You also have an opportunity to enter the ShopRite "Shop Once. Give Twice." Sweepstakes for your chance to win one of 10 Grand Prizes of 5,000 Bonus Box Tops for the school of your choice.  This sweepstakes ends on 2/28/11, so don't delay.  No purchase is necessary to enter.  Read the official rules for more details.

Thanks to General Mills, ShopRite, and My Blog Spark, I have the opportunity to give away a $25 ShopRite Gift Card.

Would you like a chance to win?  This is different from my typical giveaways, so please read carefully.

This giveaway is closed.

Here's how to enter: Leave a comment to tell me which General Mills products you are excited to see featured in the Shop Once. Give Twice. program.  Be sure to leave a way for me to contact you. Limit 1 entry per day.

More details: Open to residents of USA, age 18 or older. Giveaway ends 3/3/11 at noon (Eastern time). Winner will be chosen by the random number generator at Random.org. Winner will be notified by email and must claim prize within 48 hours, or another winner will be chosen. Prize will be fulfilled through MyBlogSpark. Void where prohibited.

Disclosure:  General Mills and ShopRite gave me a gift card as part of the MyBlogSpark program and to facilitate my review of the ShopRite Shop Once. Give Twice. offers.
