Money for YOUR School - 10% Goes Back To Schools Program

When I checked out at Randall's the other day a man asked me if I wanted his Catalina. He told me that he did not have any children and maybe my children's school could benefit from his receipt. When I looked at the bottom of it I saw the message "10% goes back to schools" and a redemption code.

I told him thanks, went home, logged in on the website and this is what I found out.

For three weeks starting on September 18th a redemption code will be printed at the bottom of your receipt at participating stores (Safeway, Carrs, Dominick's, Genuardi's, Pak 'n' Save, Randall's Food Markets, Tom Thumb Food & Pharmacy, Vons and Pavilions). Pick a school to get 10% of your total at the end. Visit this site before October 13th to choose your favorite participating school. Then simply enter your redemption code to make your donation. You can also give the bottom of your receipt (with the redemption code) directly to the school you've selected.

Return to THIS SITE between the dates of September 18th and October 13th to start redeeming your receipts, follow the steps below:
  1. Identify your organization
  2. Enter the redemption code found on the register receipt tapes
  3. Return to this site as often as you wish to enter additional register receipt tape codes

Registered eScrip families will receive an automatic deposit to their account via the regular eScrip payment process.

I entered the redemption code from the catalina the man gave me and an automatic $2.90 was given to my school. How easy and simple was that?! We have approximately 500 students at our school and I thought, "Wow, if everyone entered their receipt redemption code during the redemption time frame our school would rake it in!"

So check your receipts from participating stores because every dollar helps your children's school!

  1. I did try to do this redemption as well but the 10% must be based on certian items, my reciept was 60.12 and the "10%" was 1.29. But I can't see any specific tagging on the reciept to identify what products qualified. Anyway its another 1.29 for the school.
