This is very hard to do. The school is not making much money this way.

The app is awful. It does not record your earnings accurately often and it takes a significant amount of time for the box top team to address the problems.
Not liking the section of receipt part of the app.It is very difficult to see where to line up the sections. There has to be a clearer picture to know where to be able to do so. 🙁
I give it three stars only because the program seems to have gotten better at recognizing eligible products. Because I’m related to a teacher at the school I support I know that this makes it a lot easier on her. Haven’t asked yet if the amount the school has received has decreased but I suspect it has for reasons cited in other reviews.One thing that really does annoy me is that they ask how I like this app. The only (Yes, only!) response to choose from is “I love it!” or words to that effect.
Super easy and friendly to use! Loving it!
I hate using this app. I feel that this app is a swing in favor of paying out less to schools. As a coordinator for box tops, I have seen a drastic decline in school profits as people can no longer clip at their leisure and send in during specific times at school. Now it is time sensitive, difficult to scan (hand shake, lighting, requiring a phone), cumbersome and annoying after a long grocery trip. I wish the clipping would resume!!
It took 3 times to get the receipt to scan correctly.
We have been trying to use this app for a a couple of months now and now it never finds a thing. Worked the first time, and since then it says nothing there. By the time we get back to using this the groceries have all been put away, so it’s a pain to drag them items out of the pantry to scan the barcode. Sorry, it’s just too difficult to use.

I still think you have way less participation than before and am saddened by your decision to prevent pooling of boxtops. Grandparents are no longer buying products to save the box tops for their kids. You should have allowed both old and new options. So sad who’s idea was this anyway. 😢
The people who contribute to this program the most was my grandparents growing up, my parents and their parents are not app savvy to participate so your loosing a lot of contributions by making it app only. My parents hands shake too much to be able to participate as well. Previously, when you clipped them… you had a long window of time to get them to the school…but having a 14 day window is not enough for my parents to save their receipt so I can once a month scan them all in. Making that 14 day window 30 days or 60 days would be a huge help to claim more box tops from things we already buy. Not sure a better solution. App is great just leaves a gap with the folks that have trouble taking a photo. Also some family still does flip phones without internet so they can’t participate.
