SCRIP Gift Card Program

  • Want to learn more about the Scrip fundraising program? Click here for a flyer that gives a quick overview

SCRIP is a game changer!! If you spend money in anyway, then SCRIP is for you!!

SCRIP is Gift Card program, it is an SPA fundraiser and it will stay with us forever, it'll become part of our culture.

SIGN UP FOR SCRIP GIFT CARD FUND RAISING TODAY!

ShopWithScrip is our new, easy, no-selling, year-round fundraiser. Basically, you save $$ into your SPA (student point account) by simply doing all of your normal day-to-day shopping and instead of paying with cash, debit card or credit, you pay with gift cards (plastic or electronic) you've purchased from ShopWithScrip.com. For every gift card you buy, ShopWithScrip gives a rebate (percentage predetermined by retailer) back to SFMA that is split 60/40 between your SPA and the SFMA general fund. What could be easier?? Save while you shop! The only "catch" is that you need to do just a little bit of pre-planning for purchases from retailers that only provide physical gift cards (these orders are available in less than a week after you order) or you need to remember to buy the electronic gift card on your MyScripWallet mobile app while you're standing in the checkout line!

How to sign up:

1. If you don't already have the SFMA specific enrollment code then email Coordinator Kim Staquet at jknjs@aol.com

2. Go to ShopWithScrip.com to create a new account and then click Join a Program to enter the SFMA enrollment code

3. Sign up for PrestoPay to pay for the gift cards by electronic debit from your checking or savings account

4. Go to MyScripWallet.com to download and save the mobile app to your phone to use and manage all your electronic gift cards and physical card reloads while on the go
