St. Mark Lutheran Rebate Programs

Listed below are all the rebate programs that St. Mark participates in. We have been able to utilize these programs over the years to purchase various things that were needed. You can support St. Mark through these programs simply by saving UPCs, receipts, labels, caps, or by purchasing gift cards. Please read through the program descriptions below, and see how you can start taking advantage of the many opportunities to support St. Mark church and school today!

Gordy's Cash Redemption Program

Gordy's Cash Redemption Program

We all have to eat and many of our families shop at one of the Gordy's County Markets. Save those receipts and drop them off at St. Mark in the white drawer cabinet in the hallway across from the kitchen! Gordy's gives back 1%, excluding liquor, beer, tobacco, tax, and service counter purchases. Receipts are turned in during the first week of January, April, July or October and must equal a minimum of $5,000. Receipts over six months old won't be accepted. Please write or circle total amount of qualifying purchases on the receipt before turning it in.

The benefits from this program have been used for things like Grandparents Day treats, and gifts for Teacher Appreciation Week.

box tops for education

Box Tops for Education from General Mills

With over 250 participating products, it’s an easy way for schools to earn cash for the things they need. You can help support St. Mark school through this rebate program in 2 ways:

1. Clip BoxTops from participating products (apparel, cereal, baking goods, food storage and paper products, school supplies, snacks, tableware, frozen foods, etc.) Neatly clipped boxtops can be turned in at the white drawer cabinet in at the white drawer cabinet in the hallway near the kitchen.

2. Earn eBoxTops for St. Mark when you shop online. Just sign up for a BoxTops account and shop online at over 300 retailers through BoxTops Marketplace. eBoxTops are the online version of Box Tops and are electronically credited to your school. Just like clipped BoxTops, eBoxTops are worth 10¢ apiece and will be automatically added to your school’s next BoxTops check. There are also bonus opportunities online where you could earn double boxtops or more!

St. Mark can use BoxTops cash to buy whatever we need most. On average, St. Mark receives about $600/yr from BoxTops in the form of a check. We have used BoxTops money for things like piano tuning, athletic uniforms, and VBS supplies.

Labels for Education

We have been participating in the Labels for Education Since the year 2000. Through this program we collect UPCs and beverage/sauce caps from participating products to earn points that are redeemed for FREE art supplies, athletic equipment, or academic materials. You will recognize the Labels for Education logo on a variety of products.

On average, St. Mark collects about 3000 - 5000 Labels for Education points each year. We have redeemed these points to buy things like kick balls, inside balls, paints, and markers. So, be sure to check your cupboards for brands that carry the Labels for Education logo. Simply clip the UPCs, and remember to drop them off at the white drawer cabinet across from the kitchen!
