If you are looking for an easy way to add money to your student’s band account then the Scrip Program is for you. Retailers all over the country offer gifts cards with a percentage of the value rebated back to you. These rebates can be anywhere from 2% to 25%. You then use your gift cards when out shopping or dining instead of cash or credit. You can use the cards for your own personal shopping or give them as gifts. You can order as little or as much as you want at a time.
The Shop with Scrip program allows you to order cards at your convenience, keep track of your past orders, see the retailers that are available all over the country, and be informed about current bonuses and specials. You will also know the rebate you receive when your order is entered so that you can keep track of the funds in your band student’s account.
To start the Shop with Scrip program you need to register at www.shopwithscrip.com. The site has information on how the program works as well as an 800# to answer your questions. When you register designate the Chaparral Band Boosters as your organization and use the following enrollment code: 64AA6F932635. You can have friends and family members register also, just be sure that they designate which student’s account the rebate should be credited to.
Once you have registered you can place your order on-line. There are two payment options. First, you can print out the receipt of your order and drop your check off at Lori McKinstry’s house at 15792 Greenstone Cir. Parker (the neighborhood directly across from the front of Chaparral). Your second option is to sign-up for Presto Pay and the amount that you owe will be deducted from your checking account for a minimal fee of $.15 per order. Just be aware that it takes a couple of days for the Presto Pay sign-up process to be completed.
Orders will be placed twice a month during the school year (on 15th and the last day of each month), and just at the end of the month during the summer. You can place your order on-line anytime before those dates, but only orders that have been paid by Presto Pay or that I have received a check for by 6pm on the order date will be processed.
Shipping costs for gift cards will be divided among the families that place orders, and are deducted from the rebate amount. Once the gift cards arrive I will e-mail you and arrange for their pick-up at my house.
Some vendors participate in the Scrip Now program as well as providing regular gift cards. The Scrip Now program allows you to receive a Gift Certificate by e-mail, which you can print out and use right away. You do not have to wait for your gift cards and you do not have to pay for shipping. If you use Presto Pay then the order is completed right away, and you will receive your Gift Certificate by e-mail within an hour. However, if you pay by check then the order cannot be completed until I have received your check. Scrip Now orders can be placed anytime during the month.
Please check out the Shop with Scrip website to see how many retailers participate in this program. There are even on-line retailers.
