slsSCRIPenvelopeThe St. Louis Gift Card program is entering its 19th year of successful fundraising. The SCRIP program sold nearly $500,000 worth of gift cards last year and the total profit for the school and families of St. Louis was over $24,000.

What is SCRIP?
Scrip is Fundraising While You Shop®. Scrip turns everyday shopping into cash for your organization when families use retail gift cards to pay for everyday purchases (like gas and groceries) instead of the usual credit/debit card or other money. St. Louis School buys gift cards at a discount and resells them at face value, with no additional cost to you!

You may now purchase SCRIP by placing a one-time standing order that will be deducted automatically from your FACTS account. The order can be processed once or twice a month, and the gift cards will be delivered the week the payment is processed. Think how great it would be to purchase grocery cards so that you always have one in your wallet for those trips to the store! Since the one thing we all buy is groceries – it is a great way to get your shopping done and support the school at the same time.

slsRebate

How can I use SCRIP?
Let’s say you grocery shop at Giant. You buy a Giant card for $50 from St. Louis School. You go to Giant and use the $50 gift card for your purchases. It’s that easy! The gift cards are valid as long as a cash balance remains on the card. back

How does St. Louis School make money?
St. Louis HSA buys the gifts cards at a 1% to 16% discount. Did you know last year? Our participating families received $9,000 in tuition credit. $15,500 went directly to the operating budget to offset tuition.back

Are there any other benefits?
YES!!! Your family earns half the rebate provided by the retailer on your purchases throughout the year. The credit is applied to your August tuition bill. You also receive 1/2 hour service credit for each $100 you purchase. back

What stores can I purchase?
There are hundreds of stores – over 50 of which we keep in inventory. back

Are SCRIP gift cards for me to use or are they gifts? Both – you purchase gift cards that you give as gifts (teacher gifts, birthday gifts, Christmas, etc.) or you can use the cards yourself. back

Can I use SCRIP cards to make online/phone purchases? Most cards can be used for online purchases using the number that appears on the back of the cards. It is best to check first to assure that a particular store allows online or phone purchases using gift cards. back
