Scrip Gift Card Fundraiser

https://www.shopwithscrip.com

Mayo's Committee Contact: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Overview

Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, Scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our Scrip program including LL Bean, The Gap, Kohl’s, Dunkin Donuts, Panera, Red Robin and many, many others.

You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple—Scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Member families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, you redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue.

Example: Buy an LL Bean gift card for $100 and Mayo gets $18.00

The beauty of Scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for our school without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with Scrip at the stores that participate in the Scrip program! And Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.

Gift Cards are perfect for teachers, coaches, mailman, bus driver, relatives and friends. Most people purchase gift cards during the holiday season and you can ask friends and family if they want to purchase them to support your child’s school.

How to Order

There are hundreds of retailers participating in the program. For a complete list, go to https://www.shopwithscrip.com. You can order online from the list!

OR

Complete the order form and send in a check made payable to “Mayo PTA.”

The final deadline for orders is Thursday December 3rd.

Gift cards will be available for pick up on Thursday, December 17th before and after both holiday concerts and from 5-6pm.

We are unable to send orders via children’s backpacks.

Thank you for your support!
