Get your back-to-school essentials with Xspero™

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 this time around, 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, sleepovers, and trips to the shore, it’s no surprise if your children are a little rusty in the math department—and if they 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, NJ offers one-on-one math tutoring programs for elementary, middle, and high school students—and they now accept Xspero™ certificates, so you can help members of your community with 20 percent of your purchase going to a nonprofit 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 in Vineland, for back-to-school shoes while supporting a local business and giving back on your dollar with Xspero™. Dusharm’s has got you covered with all the current trends and provides an overall quality shopping experience you can feel good about.

Getting a Fresh Cut: A fresh haircut just before school starts is a staple for back-to-school prep, and Lisa’s Place Salon in Canton, NJ gives shape-ups and trims with expert quality and care. You can be in-and-out while checking a fresh cut off your back-to-school checklist knowing your Xspero™ certificate is helping others in your community.

Prepping Instruments: If you have a virtuoso in the family, now’s the time for any instrument repairs before band practice resumes this school year (that is, if they aren’t renting instruments from school). The Music Stop in Cape May offers equipment rentals, rehearsal space, lessons, repairs, and more—and when you use Xspero™ with Music Stop, you’re in perfect harmony with your community in South Jersey when you choose a nonprofit to give 20 percent of your purchase to.
