Hello SWAT families-
We would like to introduce another easy opportunity to fundraise for SWAT while you shop for everyday purchases. We have set up an account with the Scrip program. You can buy gift cards for over 780 retail brands that you already shop and earn a rebate (often larger than other programs offer) that goes to SWAT for every gift card/ecard that you purchase at face value.
To make this super easy for you, follow the attached SWAT family registration packet and register online at www.ShopWithScrip.com. Amy Ingalls is the Scrip Program coordinator, and you can email any questions to SWATBoard@spokanewaves.org. Here is a link to a video explaining the SWAT Scrip program: https://youtu.be/5cx8rL3oTEM
I gave the Scrip program a trial run after I set up our SWAT account. I went to www.ShopWithScrip.com, entered our SWAT club code, and it took about 5 minutes to set up and confirm my family account. I uploaded MyScripWallet app on my phone, and I set up the PrestoPay function so I can purchase directly and securely with my bank account.
As an example, I knew I needed to run to Bath and Body Works for a gift and some soaps. I logged onto the MyScripWallet app on my phone, looked up Bath and Body Works (12% rebate right now for SWAT), purchased the ecard with the PrestoPay function that directly withdrew from my account, and immediately received my $50 ecard for the store that I take in a use on my phone just like a gift card at the store. (Took about 2 minutes all total, and earned $6 back to SWAT). You can also choose to receive gift cards by mail if they are for someone else.
So if you already know you are going to shop at a retailer such as Home Depot, Lowes, Safeway, Target, Walmart, Kohls, Panera, Starbucks, Subway, various gas stations, etc., why not use the SWAT Scrips program, load an ecard before you go, and earn money to help with SWAT training equipment replacement, pool and equipment rennovations, etc? Super simple and so many retailers!
There is also an option to place team family orders for gift cards by mail, contact Amy Ingalls if you are interested, but the online/app/PrestoPay method purchasing is very quick and easy to use.
Share with friends and family, and all of this information can be found under the fundraising tab on the SWAT team unify home page as well.
Thanks for taking the time to benefit the team while you do your everyday shopping!
