Shop with SCRIP

  • Committee Description

    Meet each week to fill orders for gift cards that school families have purchased. 

    What is SCRIP?

    Scrip is one of two major SVMS fundraiser.  It enables SVMS families’ to purchase gift cards to over 300 retailers at a discount of anywhere from 2 to 15%.  The school is able to keep the discounted amount!  

    For example:  Purchase a $100 L.L. Bean gift card through Scrip. You pay SVMS $100.  SVMS then pays Scrip $90 because L.L. Bean is offered at a 10% discount.  SVMS earns $10!

    Groceries, clothing, dining out, home improvement, even gasoline can be purchased with Scrip gift cards.   Participating retailers include: Shop Rite, Stop & Shop, Target, The Gap, LL Bean, Gary’s Wine & Marketplace, Kings, Game Stop, Amazon, iTunes, American Express & Visa Gift Cards plus many, many more. 

    Every family with children in grades K - 8 is obligated to purchase at least $2500 worth of gift cards during the school year (Sept – May).  Alternatively, families may buy out of the Scrip program by paying $250 to HSA at the beginning of the school year.

    PrestoPay is the Scrip equivalent of PayPal.  You can set up a PrestoPay account on the Scrip website and payment will be taken directly out of your checking account.  For this convenience, you will need to pay a small fee of .15 cents, but remember, it alleviates the step of writing a check.
