Submission Deadlines

You may submit your school’s Box Tops at any time, but you must send them in by these deadlines in order for them to count toward your school’s check. Checks are mailed to schools twice a year, in late December and late April.

November 1st

  • Earnings from March 2nd through November 1st will be included in the December check

March 1st

  • Earnings from November 2nd through March 1st will be included in the April check


Packages need to be postmarked on or before the deadline to be included in the next batch of school checks.

  • Check the postmark rules of the mail carrier you choose to use. If your package is received after 6:00 pm, some carriers will postmark your package as the next day.

  • We highly recommend saving your receipt and tracking your shipment.
