What is SCRIPS?
The scrip program is a rebate program based on FCS purchasing shopping/gift cards (also called "scrip" which means "substitute money") at a discount from hundreds of popular retailers. You pay the full face value for the shopping cards and then use the full face value of the shopping cards to make your everyday purchases. The difference between the discount (which varies with each retailer) and the full face value becomes revenue for the school. This revenue is divided 50/50 between FCS to benefit the school and individual participants.
Rebates accumulate during a one year period from May 1 to April 30. Participants receive a check for half of their proceeds from the program in May following that one year period. One family who uses the program regularly received $524.55 from the program during the 2017-2018 school year to apply to tuition, school trips, school supplies, etc. which means that FCS also received $524.55! Teachers can use the program to raise money for their classrooms. Your proceeds from the program can be used however you choose to use them. The key to benefiting from the program is to use it regularly for your everyday purchases in place of cash, checks, or credit/debit cards as well as for gifts for holidays, birthdays, etc.
Individuals enter their orders online on the shopwithscrip.com website and pay for them using PrestoPay, the scrip company’s secure online payment. Electronic gift cards can be ordered at any time on your mobile device. Orders for physical gift cards are placed at 3pm on the dates specified by the coordinator and will be delivered according to your instructions that you specify on your enrollment form by Friday of that week. The 2018-19 order dates are: 8/6, 8/20, 9/10, 9/24, 10/22, 11/12, 11/26, 12/10, 1/14, 1/28, 2/11, 2/25, 3/25, 4/8, 4/22, 5/6.
