Scrip Program

FAST is pleased to offer a great program for our team. It’s called “Shop with Scrip” and it’s a fundraising program that works for you and the team while you do your normal shopping/spending.  

WHAT IS SHOP WITH SCRIP?  

The scrip program offers gift cards from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift cards that you buy at the store. Over 300 popular retailers participate in the program and can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline, home improvement and dining out. I would encourage you to look at the huge list of retailers. A comprehensive listing can be found at www.shopwithscrip.com .

Buying gift cards to stores where you normally shop earns a percentage of the card value as profit.  This amount, or “rebate” is then credited to your family’s scrip account.  The money accumulated can then be utilized to offset your family membership fee and/or a tax-deductible donation to the team. 

There are two main ways to effectively utilize the Scrip Program.   First, you can simply place orders as you have a need (family dinners, birthday gifts, trips, home improvement).  Second, you can also plan a bi-weekly standing order for everyday budget items such as groceries, clothing, gas etc. 

By simply planning on everyday purchases like groceries, gas, restaurants, clothes, entertainment and home repair, the average family puts their shopping dollars to work for them and FAST!  The key is to start using Scrip early in the season to take advantage of the opportunity!

HOW DO I GET STARTED? 

In three easy steps, you can register and begin purchasing cards.

1. Register at www.shopwithscrip.com

2. Enter FAST’s enrollment code:  E2E45F442L291.

3. Once your account is set up, you may shop online for gift cards just as you would shop at any other online store. When you find a gift card you would like to purchase, click on the "Add to Cart" button, and when you are finished, "Checkout."

If you are not comfortable with online shopping, that’s no problem at all.  Simply email/text me your order.  I’ll place it online and deliver it to you on the pool deck.

HOW DO I PAY FOR MY PURCHASES?

Paying for your purchases is simple, too. You may pay by cash, check made out to FAST, or pay online linking your bank account (PrestoPay) or using a credit card. 

Prestopay is an ACH bank debit account at www.shopwithscrip.com .  Each time you make a purchase, the amount will be debited from your bank account as if you were using your debit card for a purchase. There is a nominal fee of $0.15 for each transaction. It takes a couple of days to verify your bank account the first time you use it, but after that your payment will be instant.  

How Do I Set Up Presto Pay?

1) Click on Your Dashboard

2) Click on Presto Pay Link under the family function section

3) Enter your bank name, routing number and account number and other information

4) Within the next 48 hours, ShopWithScrip will make two small deposits into your checking account.

5) Log back into ShopwithScrip, confirm the amount of the two deposits.

6) You will receive an email with an approval code from ShopWithScrip

7) Email the approval code to the Scrip Coordinator, Julie Schreiber, at  gjschreiber@comcast.net.

8) The Scrip Coordinator will approve your enrollment

Credit Cards can also be used to make your purchases.  Scrip accepts Visa and Mastercard.  The rebate amount is the same, no matter what way you pay.  There is a 2.6% fee is added to your order total each time you pay with a credit card to help cover the cost of processing online payments.   As always, you will have instant access to eGift cards and reloads.

HOW DO I GET MY GIFT CARDS?

There are three ways to receive your gift cards:

  • Pick up on the pool deck.  For those cards not currently in inventory, I typically place an order to Scrip headquarters every two weeks. Orders arrive within 2-4 days and can be delivered to you at practice.
  • Order ScripNow® eCards.  These are electronic gift cards that can be ordered and printed right from your ShopWithScrip® account. You’ll receive your scrip in minutes and be able to shop in stores or online immediately! 
  • Use My Scrip Wallet (mobile option) MyScripWallet.com is the mobile website that lets you take scrip fundraising wherever you are. On MyScripWallet, you can order physical cards, ScripNow eGift cards, reload your cards, and in many cases, redeem them right from your mobile device. Since it’s a mobile website, MyScripWallet is supported on both Apple and Android.

 

Also, many of the cards can be “reloaded.”   Using one of the online payment methods, you can add value to many of the cards purchased.
