For the 2017-18 swim year, Poseidon requires no family fund raising. However, members will have the same opportunity to earn money towards monthly fees through the scrip program. The earnings from this programs will be split 50% to the member and 50% to the team. Poseidon will host a USA Swimming Swim-a-thon and the Silent Auction in the fall.
Gift Card/Scrip Program
The Great Lakes Scrip Program has been a successful way for our families to raise money. Gifts cards are purchased at face value by the member, but the team purchases them at a discount. This discount is passed along to member families, in a 50/50 split between member and team.
The team orders your scrip (gift cards) every Monday morning, 10 AM. You can expect delivery between Wednesday and Friday afternoon of that week. You can order by registering on line at www.shopwithscrip.com. Set up your account using the Poseidon Enrollment Code 12818A3D1L8L7. You now have 2 ways to pay for gift cards. You can write a check to the team for your order, or set up PrestoPay* for your account.
You order on line and pick up your gift cards here at the pool. ScripNow and Reloadable scrip do not require pick up. ScripNow is delivered by email and reloadables load directly to the card you already have. Using Prestopay for this type of scrip allows orders to complete almost instantaneously.
If you ever have any questions, please call the office at 833-796-3278.
In addition, Food Lion and Kroger offer gift cards. Kroger Community Rewards is also available and must be setup annually. This can be done via Kroger/Food Lion's websites.
*PrestoPay™ is a convenient way for you to pay for orders directly, on-line, at the time you place their order. You can still elect to pay Poseidon via check. You will be given the option to select the payment type each time you order, during the check-out process.
