SCRIP

What is Scrip?

sws_logoScrip is a tuition reduction program which can be started at any time. Credit that is earned prior to your child’s enrollment at CPCS will be held in your family’s tuition account until they are enrolled.

How does Scrip work?

Click Getting Started with Shop With Scrip to get started.  Scrip gift cards or certificates are ordered online from the order form at face value. These are for items that you would be buying anyway in your normal walk of life (groceries, fuel, clothing, restaurants, gifts, etc.) and they are “same as cash” at the retailer. Kohls allows you to pay your credit card bill with them, but they are the only department store that currently does this.

The school purchases these gift certificates at a discount (amount of discount for each retailer is noted on the order form). The difference between what you pay and what the school pays is the profit. We split the profit: ¾ of it is credited to your tuition account and the remaining ¼ goes to the school to pay the expenses of running this program, along with a small amount of profit. Tuition accounts are credited 3 times per year, at which time it will show on your statement as a credit or you will receive a notice of the accumulated credit.

How do I register for Scrip?

To begin benefiting from this easy moneymaker, you must complete a Scrip Registration Form and submit it to Paulette Schaap in the school office. No orders will be released without your signature on this form. You may elect on this form to have your order sent home with the student of your choice or have them kept in the office for pick-up.

How do I order Scrip?

Online ordering is available at www.ShopWithScrip.com. If you are placing a first-time order you will need to set-up a family account. You can also order by filling out a current hard copy Scrip Order Form. All available retailers can be found at www.glscrip.com.  We do have some Scrip Local Vendors that are not listed.  If you use these vendors you may want to bring the Scrip Local Vendor Form with you for your purchase.  If you want to order from any retailer that is not listed on our Scrip Order Form just write it at the bottom of your form.  Here is the Scrip calendar: Jan – June 2017.

How do I pay for Scrip?

Once your order has been placed, you can pay by check, money order or Presto Pay. It is important to remember to send your payment in to Paulette Schaap if you order online and choose not to use Presto Pay.

Important: Any order that has been submitted but not paid for by the date will NOT be placed.

If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to email the Scrip coordinator at pschaap@crownpointchristian.org or call 219-365-5694.
