Definition: SCRIP is a gift card buying program that benefits both you and the School. St. Joseph's buys the gift cards and then resells them to you at regular price. For instance, if you want to buy $100 in Hy-Vee gift card, it will cost you $100. Hy-Vee gives a 3% return which comes out to $3.00. That $3 is split between you and the school. You get 40% or $1.20. The school gets 60% or $1.80. That money adds up throughout the year and then is given back to you in SCRIP Rewards which is a gift card in the amount of all your purchase rewards. That gift card can be used to purchase further gift cards.
If you go to www.shopwithscrip.com, you can participate in purchasing directly on-line. There are two ways of doing so. The first thing they will prompt you to do is set up your own account. When you do this, they will ask you for an enrollment code. That # is DD6L7F92869. Once that is complete you are able to order your cards directly online and then that order will be sent to the SCRIP coordinator. If you want, you can also pay directly online by setting up a payment account right there on the site. I have done this and it works great! You will go through the same process I did and the school did to set up a payment account. They will ask you to input your checking account information and then test the account by putting in a small amount of money (.14 cents) which you will inturn verify by inputting it right back into the website.
SCRIPNOW! Ecard printing is quite easy. If you have a smart phone that has email on it, you can use the card right off your phone. Ecards will be sent directly to your email no matter where you access it and can be used immediately. There is a specific list of vendors so you will want to check that out online awww.shopwithscrip.com. BIG NEWS IS COMING.
