UPDATE: The #Jingit4Edu Twitter Party date has been pushed several days from its original date. The new party date is Tuesday, September 4th from 1-2pm EST.
I'm thrilled to announce a fun campaign I'm working on with Jingit and General Mills to benefit Box Tops 4 Education! Jingit is a tech start up that allows you to earn money simply by checking out products you already love at your favorite store or watching a few ads online. Advertisers pay you real, instant cash for paying attention to them. And with General Mills, every time you earn, you also pay it forward to Box Tops 4 Education.
How does it work? Simply sign up for Jingit and download the free mobile app. When prompted, choose a school to donate your Bonus Box Tops to and then check in at Walmart and use the app to scan the barcode on General Mills' back-to-school basics. Then – “cha-ching!” – Bonus Box Tops will be automatically donated to a school of your choice, and you’ll earn a little fun money, instantly, for yourself (up to $4.50 in a single visit to Walmart and up to $8 more if you purchase those products and scan the barcodes from home!). Finally, visit Walmart.com to engage with General Mills products, and look for banner ads with a Jingit curl. Every time you Jingit on Walmart.com, you’ll earn – and donate – more.
Tune in to #Jingit4Edu from 1-2pm EST on Tuesday, September 4th
