School Prep

Three back to school shopping areas where you can use Xspero gift cards to be charitable while you shop.

Where did the summer go? It seems like just last week the kids were hopping off the school bus and racing toward a summer of fun. While it’s not over yet, it’s just about time to start thinking about getting the kids ready to head back to school. If you’re looking to stretch your dollar and give back with every purchase, we have a plan for you.

Here’s how you can get the kids ready for back to school while giving back to your community without spending more with Xspero.

Brushing Up on Math Skills: After a summer of swimming pools, running around outside, and trips to the shore, it’s no surprise if your child is a little rusty in the math department—and if you aren’t up-to-speed on common core or still struggle with fractions and decimals, there’s a solution that will benefit more than just your child. The Mathnasium Math Learning Center in Washington Township offers one-on-one math tutoring programs for elementary, middle, and high school students—and they accept Xspero™ Digital Gift Cards, so you can help members of your community with 20 percent of your purchase going to a charity you choose. You can help your child and your community before the school bell rings on summer.

Shopping for New Kicks: Every kid needs a new pair of kicks before the school year begins. And with brands like Nike, Jordan, Puma, and Adidas, you don’t have to go further than Dusharm’s Pro Footwear or Al’s Shoe’s, both in Vineland, for back-to-school shoes while supporting local business and giving back on your dollar with Xspero™. Dusharm’s and Al’s Shoes provide an overall quality shopping experience you can feel good about.

Getting a Fresh Cut: A haircut just before school starts is a staple for back-to-school prep. Salon Fabrojae and Salon Millennium in Vineland, as well as Lisa’s Place Salon in Canton, NJ give shape-ups and trims with expert quality and care. You can be in-and-out while crossing the haircut off your back-to-school checklist knowing your use of the Xspero app is helping others in your community.

Which charities can benefit from your Xspero™ purchases? Download the Xspero™ app on the Apple App Store and Google Play to decide where 20 percent of your purchase price can help.
