All choir families who are Boosters (at any level) have the opportunity to earn money for their student’s escrow account through our “Shop with SCRIP Program”. This is a great way to earn funds to be used to pay choir fees, or for our choir trips.
What is SCRIP? Very simply, SCRIP turns everyday shopping into cash for your student’s escrow account, when you and your family and friends use retail gift cards to pay for everyday purchases (like gas and groceries), instead of the usual credit/debit card or other money. You buy gift cards/certificates from national and local retailers the same gift cards that you would you buy at the retailer or restaurant. You can certainly give these cards as gifts, but you can also use them yourself to pay for purchases you would be making anyway. The SCRIP participating retailers agree to sell their gift certificates to our organization at a discount. You buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and the difference goes to your escrow account. The rebates range from 1% to 20%, depending on the retailer, on a normal basis, with higher rebates available at times.
Example: You buy a $100 gift card from Lands End, which has a 16% rebate. You pay $100 for the card. We pay ShopWithScrip $84 and $16 goes into your escrow account. It’s very easy!
Many popular retailers and restaurants participate in our Scrip program including Brooks Brothers, Talbots, American Girl, Barnes and Noble, The Gap, Shell, BP, Panera, and many, many others. The current list of participating merchants is available at www.shopwithscrip.com . Orders must be placed through this site, and payment (by cash or check only) is due to our Scrip Coordinator by the designated order dates throughout the year.
Tip: Have your family and friends participate too. It doesn’t cost them anything, and they can help your student can earn money for their escrow account.
