What is Scrip?
Scrip is a term that means “substitute money.” When you purchase the gift cards sold through the SJR Scrip program, you are purchasing negotiable gift cards that are used just like cash. The retailers we purchase from want to support non-profit organizations and offer us a discount on the cards. We pass part of that savings on to you in the form of Scrip vouchers. You save money on tuition by making purchases you would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, and gifts can be purchased with Scrip.
Are the gift cards easy to use at the store?
Absolutely! They are used just like cash. Kohl’s gift cards are even valid for paying your bill. They make excellent gifts.
How does the tuition credit work?
Every time you purchase gift cards, you will instantly receive tuition vouchers. The vouchers are worth $2.00 and are awarded for every $50 in purchases (4% of the sale). So, if you purchase $200 in gift cards, you will receive four tuition vouchers, each worth $2.00. Tuition vouchers are used to pay your tuition! For example, if you are making a payment of $250 and you include $20 in vouchers, you write a check for $230. You just saved $20! They are also transferable. This allows friends, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. to purchase gift cards and give the tuition vouchers to families with school children. The vouchers add up quickly so start buying today!!
Can I get gift cards for my favorite store?
Most local grocery stores, restaurants and retail stores participate in the scrip program. For a complete listing of participating retailers visit www.glscrip.com.
How do I purchase the gift cards?
Two convenient options are offered:
- The gift cards are sold after all of the Masses at St. Robert’s and St. Joseph’s in the rear of the church.
- You can send the attached order form in with your check or cash to school and the order will be filled and sent home with your child. Please make your checks payable to “SJR.”
Several cards are regularly kept in stock and have immediate availability (while supplies last). Other cards need to be ordered. All orders placed before 9:30AM on Monday will be received by Friday.
