What is Scrip? Scrip is "substitute money", looking and functions just like gift cards /certificates. Our program allows Our Lady of Lourdes participants to purchase scrip for everyday expenses like food, clothing, and entertainment; while earning a percentage of each dollar of scrip purchased back in revenue.
What do I need to do to participate?
Purchase the gift cards (Scrip cards) from Our Lady of Lourdes. These cards are available after masses and during the school year. You can purchase during Scrip time (before or after school) or at the school office. During summer months you can purchase them at the parish office during the week.
***You can also purchase scrip cards online at www.ShopWithScrip.com You must pay for your order with a PrestoPay account.
I am still unclear how purchasing gift cards from OLL can help OLL. How exactly does it help?
When you purchase a gift card a certain percentage of that purchase goes to OLL. Each vendor or store gives a different percentage to OLL. For example, Fred Meyer gives 4% to OLL. Each time you purchase a $100 Fred Meyer gift cards, Our Lady of Lourdes receives $4. You still get to spend $100 at Fred Meyer. You are not out any money. The money comes to OLL from Fred Meyer. You can pick up an order form and see each vendor’s percentage. We have percentages from 1% - 50%. The order forms are in the hall at OLL on the Scrip bulletin board. They are also available on-line at www.lourdesvan.org
If I want to place a special order, how do I do that?
Fill out an order form (found in the main hallway at OLL or online) and return the order form with your check (made out to OLL) to the Scrip seller after mass or turn in at the school office during school hours. The Scrip order is placed Friday at noon during the school year, returning to you 1 week later. Email Marcela Mahoney regarding scrip orders during summer.
Can I order online and pay online?
Yes. Go to www.ShopWithScrip.com and enter our enrollment code. This can be found by contacting your scrip coordinator. A 24-hour verification check process will be conducted if not a parish or school family. You must also sign up for Presto Pay. You must pay for your order at the time you order using Presto Pay. You will be contacted when your order is ready for pickup. If you purchased ScripNow or Reloaded your card you will have your order the same day in your inbox. For new school families, it would be helpful if you sent an email to email@example.com and included your phone number so the Scrip coordinator can contact you. There is a $.15 fee for using Presto Pay each time you order.
We are a school family. We understand Scrip is mandatory for us if we do not opt out of Scrip. How many Scrip cards do we need to buy?
This is a frequently asked question. It depends on which Scrip you purchase. You need to earn $150 in profit. If you purchase Chevron at 1.5%, you’d need to purchase $10,000 to give you $150 in profit to the school. If you purchased Krispy Kreme at 50%, you’d only need to purchase $300 for $150 in profit. We keep track of all your purchases and you will receive quarterly reports as to your progress. The scrip year begins in May of each year. For 2016-2017 school year, it began on May 1st, 2016. If you are a potential or new family your scrip purchases made after 5/1/16 will count towards your $150 Scrip commitment for the school year 2016-2017.
We are a school family. Can our family and friends buy scrip to help us meet our Scrip commitment?
Absolutely. You can have them buy scrip from Our Lady of Lourdes and have them mark your name on the Scrip receipt. You can also have them register their Fred Meyer cards. Register online.
