General SCRIP Information
SCRIP is a fundraising program that costs you nothing!
You pay the face value for a gift card and get a card that has the cash value of what you paid (no cost!)
The fundraising part happens when Carroll Band Boosters purchases the gift card for you. We purchase the gift card at a reduced price. The leftover cash that you have paid for the card stays with the band (the rebate). The rebate is split between your student’s account (SIA - 90%) and the general fund to help defray costs associated with the program (general fund – 10%).
Buy a $100.00 Walmart gift card and pay $100.00 for it.
Carroll Band Boosters buys the card for $97.50.
You receive a gift card worth $100.00 to spend at Walmart.
The $2.50 rebate is split as follows: $2.25 into your student’s SIA, and $0.25 into the general fund. (rebate distribution is subject to change as established by Carroll Band Boosters)
You can use the SCRIP rebate funds for band fees, trip fees, and sometimes other costs that will be communicated to you by Mr. Hassell.
There are 3 types of SCRIP gift cards: physical gift cards, reloadable gift cards, and eGift Cards.
You can place SCRIP orders online at any time.
Orders for physical gift cards are processed every other Sunday by the SCRIP Coordinator, unless holidays, or other events disrupt this schedule. Please consult the Charms calendar for order dates. Orders are due at 6:00 pm on order Sundays. Any orders placed after 6:00 pm may not be processed until the following order.
Orders for eGift Cards get processed immediately, and the funds are available within a minute or two. eGift Cards can be ordered thru the shopwithscrip website, or thru the RaiseRight App on your cell phone. If you have any questions about the RaiseRight App, please contact coordinator.
The easiest payment method is PrestoPay, which is very similar to PayPal, and it protects your banking information in the same way. You must use PrestoPay when ordering eGift Cards.
The other option for payment is a credit card. They have a 2.6% fee for this option.
Check payments will no longer be accepted for SCRIP.
Order pick-up is almost always the Thursday after order Sunday. Like the order date, this may change due to holidays or other events (see Charms calendar). During marching band season, pick up will be at the practice field during the parent preview. For the remainder of the year, pick up will be at the coordinator’s house (see address below).
How to sign up for SCRIP
*** Very Important: You will need to print off, fill out, and sign the SCRIP Agreement Form. It is located on the band website. Please return the form to the Scrip coordinator. You can mail it, email it, or drop it in the band box.
Go to www.shopwithscrip.com
Click Register in upper right hand corner
Choose Family Registration Link
Enter enrollment code: CFLD17E94476
Follow sign up instructions. Be sure to put Mr. Hassell as classroom/group, and the *full name of your student, so the rebates are credited to the correct SIA. If you do not have a student, but would like to help raise funds for other needs, please enter that in place of a student name. For example, you could indicate “Uniform Fund” or Scholarship Fund,” etc.
How to sign up for Presto Pay
Click on Dashboard
Click on Payment Types (under Family Functions on left side of screen)
Follow steps to enroll by either instantly linking your bank account or entering banking info manually (Manually entering info will take 1-2 business days to process)
You will be ready to pay for your order with Online Payments (Presto Pay)
Please note that a small $0.15 convenience fee will apply to each order. Currently, you cannot link a credit card to your Presto Pay account, as the credit card fees would take away from your rebate earnings.
Raise Right App
**Download the RaiseRight App on your phone. You will use the same user ID and password as on the Shop with Scrip website. It is easy use, and very convenient for ordering e-cards while you are out somewhere, and you will have your e-card within a minute or two. You can also order plastic cards and reload your reloadable cards on the app as well.
Please email or text any questions or issues.
