What is Scrip?
Scrip is a gift card program that allows you to buy gift cards for the stores in which you already shop. Walmart, Albertson’s, Barnes and Noble, Cabela’s – even restaurants like Red Robin, Applebee’s, Starbucks and Olive Garden participate in the Scrip program. A percentage of the amount you purchase goes directly to WCS. If you were going to spend the money anyway, why not order a Scrip gift card ahead of time and earn WCS a percentage of what you spend?
Here is an example:
You know you are going to spend at least $150 at Safeway and $100 at JC Penney this month. Place your order in the school office for $150 Safeway and $100 JC Penney Scrip gift cards. The school will order your cards and you can use them to make your purchases. Because Safeway and JC Penney kick back a percentage of the amount spent to WCS – the school earns money (in this case $11). You’ve earned WCS $11 without spending anything more than you were already going to spend. Imagine if everyone did this. The school could be earning thousands of dollars a month!
This is such a simple way to earn money for our school without buying something you don’t need.
Here is how the program works:
- **Stop by the school office to get the school enrollment code.** Go to www.shopwithscrip.com, click on the “Get Started” tab and ”Register” to create your account. Browse, order your Scrip gift cards and pay for your purchase online by signing up for PrestoPay. This allows you to link your bank account to your personal and confidential Scrip account and purchase Scrip right on your computer.
- Purchase gift cards in the Office. We will have gift cards on hand throughout the year for Walmart, Target and Starbucks. You can also place your order for any of the numerous other establishments that Scrip offers (example: Barnes & Noble, Home Depot, Outback Steakhouse, Bed Bath & Beyond).
- Holiday Shopping – Let us help with your Christmas or other special event shopping. We will send home gift card order forms before major gift giving holidays with your student to make shopping easy for you!
There you go…It is that easy! All you need to do is plan ahead and the school makes money. Now how can you not love that??!!
