Question: expired box tops

Anyone have any ideas on what to do with expired box tops? I had heard that the military uses them in their commisary even if there expired. Does anyone know?

Yes, I would like to find about the military commisary for use of expired box tops. I used some of my expired box tops to decorate manila envelopes for teacher. Is so easy to spot a manila envelope with box tops all over. And I used them for display too.

(1) Laminate them and trim carefully, then add jewelry pieces from a craft store. Give them out to the teachers and PTO members to wear as advertisement. (2) Use them on your posters. I spelled out "BOX TOPS CONTEST" and used them as a border on my daily hallway tally chart. (3) Trim them down to one layer, put a few in a vertical row on a sheet of light pink cardstock, and laminate it. Trim to bookmark size and hand out as prizes.

I just learned about the expiration date. I have been clipping these things for years and never noticed. I just threw out over 1,000 expired points. Being from California ( I am in NC now) our legislatures made expiration dates illegal so I never paid attention. Now I have lost ALL interest in this program and will never bother clipping nor buying products just because they have the Box Tops. The products usually cost a lot more and only pay .10. I am so disappointed.
