This year we will be continuing the Scrip Program. Basically you purchase gift cards/eCards to hundreds of different merchants; grocery stores, department stores, restaurants, gas, etc. Places that everyone shops all the time. You will receive 100% of the rebate percentage on every purchase. (Example: Macys offers $25 and $100 gift cards and you will receive 10% of the cost of the purchased card into your driver's scrip account to use towards diving costs) You can buy for your personal use, to give as gifts, or purchase for someone else. All rebate percentages will remain in the diver's scrip account until you notify the Coach to have the money applied.Anyone who leaves the team for any reason, forfeits to the general budget, all monies in their scrip account.
Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase scrip, you’re purchasing prepaid cards/e-cards that are used just like cash. You can use scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials. You can place your order online 24/7.
How Scrip generates revenue for you?
The Great Lakes Scrip Center acts on behalf of churches, schools and other non-profit organizations to purchase large amounts of scrip from grocery stores, department stores, and other retailers. Because the scrip is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. The discount - from two to fifteen percent or more – is your revenue and credited to your BDD account.
Scrip is "shopping cart fundraising”
Scrip is a popular fundraiser because families don’t have to sell anything. You earn revenue by making regular household purchases you would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with scrip. You will be surprised at how many merchants are offered that you use everyday and each merchant offers their own designated rebate percentage - CVS (6%), Wawa (1.5%), Acme (4%), AMC (8%), ShopRite (4%), Dunkin Donuts (3%), Starbucks (7%), Panera Bread (9%), Target (2.5%), BP (1.5%), Macys (10%), TJMaxx (7%), Ebay (3%), Gap (14%), Amazon (3%), Express (10%), Pottery Barn & Crate&Barrel (8%), California Pizza Kitchen (8%), Cheesecake Factory (5%), The Children's Place (12%), Christmas Tree Shops (7%)...the list goes on... Many of these merchants offer scrip immediately via e-cards!!! Extra rebate bonuses are offered throughout the year so you can earn more money for your scrip account!
