SCRIP is a gift card/certificate program that returns a profit to the school. The certificates or debit cards are used the same as cash.
ALL families have the option of purchasing $1500 in SCRIP, through the last day of school, or paying an additional $150, per family, in tuition. Many have already begun. We usually send out an update on how much has been purchased every other month. We earn money because we pay the net amount of the certificate. If A&W offers us 10% discount, we pay $9.00 to A& W for a $10.00 certificate, and then we sell it to you for the full $10 amount. We offer our parents 19% OF THE REBATE, to accumulate throughout the year, until the end of the school year and that rebate is then applied to next year’s tuition. Many of our parents have earned a good deal of money by adding friends and relatives to their buying list. SCRIP is money you are spending, anyway, so it does not cost you anything to participate in this!
It’s easy to do, and certificates/debit cards can be purchased anytime in school and before and after all Masses on the week-end. We TRY to keep as much on hand as we think people will need. It’s especially nice for those of you who work at Lands’ End since we receive 16% return, and you only need to enter the number on the debit card when you place your order, AND YOU STILL GET THE EMPLOYEE DISCOUNT. Check out the website, www.shopwithscrip.com, and use the Enrollment Code, 84EC9C6C7679, if you want on on-line account (not required to make purchases).
Kohl’s allows you to use the certificates or debit cards to pay your account. You have to pay at the store rather than through the mail, but it’s easier than trying to guess in advance how much SCRIP you will need.
We carry Piggly-Wiggly in $25, $50, and $100 amounts. Since everyone has to buy groceries, we are hopeful this will REALLY boost our SCRIP sales. We also have SCRIP for Walgreen’s and WalMart as well as Woodman’s in Madison.
We will usually order on an “as needed “ basis, so if you know of a big purchase, please let us know in advance. Our local favorites are Bob’s, Box Office Video, Country Kitchen, Cousin’s, Culver’s, Dodge Theatre, Kwik Trip, Lands’ End, and Pizza Hut, The order form is attached, also, if you would like to place an order.
