Barely worth the effort. You're at the mercy of their AI scanning your image of your receipt and guessing what items are. It misses things that qualify thinking they're something else and there's no way to attach a photo to the message you can send about a discrepancy. All that for a measly 10¢ is not worth it.

This app has improved since it originally came out. Cutting out physical box tops was much simpler and our kids enjoyed getting involved, which they can't do with this. This app still seems to be mostly a ploy to be able to advertise to you more. I gave it three stars (originally 2) because it does technically work most of the time, which provides some benefit to schools.

So disappointed with the Box Tops app. It will never accept the digital receipt they email me.. and this is the biggest way I purchase BoxTops products. I have attempted to submit them multiple different ways and report missing credits to no avail. When that failed I've emailed BTFE as instructed with no credit given. What a hassle and such a waste of time. Doesn't capture rural grocery receipts either. So sad that a program that used to help our children doesn't anymore.

We are so sorry that the app has missed Box Tops for you. The easiest way to receive the proper credit is to report them using the "Report Missing Earnings" option in the app right after you scan. If you still are not receiving the proper credit for your receipts, please reach out to us at and we will get you your credit!
