In-store rewards program offers shoppers the chance to earn twice the rewards
Tops Friendly Markets announced that, during the month of January, it is offering schools the chance to earn double the rewards as part of its “Tops in Education” program (“TIE”). Participants enrolled in the program will now be able to earn up to 10% for their school(s) during the entire month of January.
Designated schools will earn double the rewards when purchasing participating products, including Tops Brand, Full Circle, TopCare, Tippy Toes, Simply Done, That's Smart and Best Yet with a registered Tops BonusPlus card.
“Tops wants to ensure that our local schools had the tools they needed in order to succeed,” said Kathleen Allen, senior manager of community relations for Tops Markets. “From funding school fieldtrips and school dances, to flexing during COVID and providing families hand sanitizer and masks who couldn’t afford them, Tops has learned that the supplemental funding that ‘TIE’ has afforded these school districts has truly been a blessing.”
Since the program’s inception in 2012, Tops has donated more than $1.3 million to over 1,000 participating schools. In 2020 alone, the program raised more than $146,000 for local schools.

“This program provides a great value for our customers while helping to provide funding for educational needs in the communities we serve,” said Kathleen Allen, senior manager of community relations for the company. “As we at Tops strive to help eradicate hunger and improve the quality of life for children, we couldn’t be more proud of this achievement of donating more than $1.3 million back to local K-12 schools over the past nine years, through ‘Tops in Education. ”
