Scrip Fundraiser

(Click the quick links below for FAQs)



What is Scrip? Scrip is a fundraising opportunity for families who wish to participate.  When families purchase scrip, they’re purchasing negotiable gift cards that are used just like cash. You can use scrip to purchase everyday items like food, clothing and other essentials. With every purchase your family will earn a percentage (2-15%) back which can be applied to the fundraising portion of your dues for the following swim team season. Each family can earn back credit as follows:

  • One swimmer $250
  • Two swimmers $425
  • Three or more swimmers $500

Credit earned will be accumulated throughout the season in each family’s membership account. At the end of the season (August) the credit will be applied to the following season’s dues.  Scrip season is Sept 1 through Aug 1 of the following year.  Scrip purchases may still be made from Aug 2-31, however rebates for those purchases (e-scrip, physical cards and/or auto reload) will be credited to the general PTSC club account NOT individual family accounts.  

Effective 11/18/14, PTSC families who exceed their family fundraising fee maximum, can now apply additional rebates ("overage") towards their PTSC dues at a 50/50 split rate with the club. Please note that these additional funds may only be applied to club dues and cannot be applied to the volunteer or registration fees.

For a small convenience fee of only $0.15 per order, you can order and pay for scrip on your ShopWithScrip account at any time, day or night.

With PrestoPay™  you can:

  • purchase e-gift cards and print out the card from your computer -typically within minutes.  
  • purchase and use e-gift cards from your smart phone!   
  • pay for your physical cards through PrestoPay (no more sending checks!) but physical gift cards will still be delivered and distributed through the scrip coordinator.

Via Credit Card:

New for 2019, ShopWithScrip allows you to use a credit card for purchases. At checkout, choose pay by credit card to enter your credit card information. A 2.6% fee will be added to the order to utilize this service. This works the same as PrestoPay (access to e-gift cards, reloads, etc. immediately) just with a higher transaction fee. You can use this for physical gift cards as well, but the cards will still be delivered and distributed through the scrip coordinator.



Which retailers are in the ShopwithScrip program?

New retailers are added all the time, check the Shopwithscrip website (retailers page)  for a current list.



How do I get the cards?

Once payment has been received a master order for the club will be sent into ShopwithScrip on the order due date (click here for a list of due dates).  Orders for physical gift cards arrive about one week later and will be delivered on Giant Eagle Days (GE days). You will be notified via email when the orders will be available to be picked up. 

Many gift cards are also available as “e-scrip” {e-gift cards}.  If you pay for e-scrip via PrestoPay or credit card, you can print e-scrip cards from your computer and use within hours of your order or use them through the MyScripWallet  "app".   More info and FAQs on the MyScripWallet Mobile Website 

When are Club Order dates?

A master order is placed for the club one time a month.  During the month of December, two master orders will be placed to accommodate the large number of physical orders  from PTSC members. Click here for  more information as well as a list of days and times. 

Giant Eagle Days

On these days Giant Eagle cards are on hand and sold on the pool viewing deck by the Scrip Fundraising chair.  The cards are in $100 increments; payment is via check only.  Checks should be made payable to PTSC.  These GE cards are included in the scrip rebate as normal.  Click here for a list of days and times.


Effective 11/18/14, PTSC families who exceed their family fundraising fee maximum, can now apply additional rebates ("overage") towards their PTSC dues at a 50/50 split rate with the club. Please note that these additional funds may only be applied to club dues and cannot be applied to the volunteer or registration fees.


Example for the"Bradshaw" family with one PTSC swimmer in the Dolphin group:


  * The Bradshaw family has the opportunity to earn their family fundraising  rebate of $250 at the normal Scrip rebate amounts.


  * After the Bradshaw family has earned their $250 in fundraising fees, THEN  they can continue to earn 50% of Scrip rebates towards next season's PTSC  dues (in this case up to $605 which is the dues for the Dolphin group). The other 50% of the rebate will go into the PTSC general fundraising account to benefit all swimmers in the club.


  * The $250 fundraising fee rebate, plus whatever amount of the $605 dues  rebate the Bradshaws have earned between September 1 and August 1, will be  credited to the Bradshaw family account when they register for the next swim  season in late August.
