Scrip is just another name for gift cards.
Blessed Sacrament purchases gift cards from Great Lakes Scrip (a clearing house offering hundreds of different gift cards) at a discount of 1.5% - 20%, depending on the business.
Gift cards are sold to our families at face value. Example: you pay $100.00 for a Shop & Save card that the school purchased for $95.00. The school earns $5.00 on your purchase. We offer an incentive to our families of 50% of the profits earned to be applied towards tuition or free scrip. It doesn't seem like much, but purchased each week over the course of a year, it adds up to a donation of $130.00 per year to the school and $130.00 towards tuition for your family.
Blessed Sacrament offers 50% of the rebates earned back to the participating families in the form of free scrip or tuition credits.
