If you are unfamiliar with SCRIP, it is simply gift cards from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift cards that you buy at the store. You can use the cards for gifts or for your everyday shopping. Popular retailers participate in our scrip program including Starbucks, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Jamba Juice, Von’s/Pavilions, Gelson’s, CVS, Smart & Final, Whole Foods, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Macy’s, ARCO, Shell, Sprouts and hundreds of others.
You may be asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple -- scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift cards to our organization at a discount. Families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue (the average rebate is 5%).
ShopWithScrip.com is the online ordering system that our school now uses to gather your scrip orders. This site offers you convenience – you can now order scrip from any internet-connected computer at home, school, or office. The deadlines for placing orders will be the 15th and last day of each month.
