OLGC’s Scrip Savings Program – At the Trinity Center AND Online!
What is Scrip?
Scrip is a term that means “Substitute Money” and is simply another name for “Gift Cards.” If you have ever used a gift card, then you’ve used Scrip!
When you purchase Scrip, you’re purchasing negotiable gift cards that are used just like cash. You can use Scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials.
How does Scrip work?
This short video explains how SCRIP works.
Why purchase Scrip?
The Parish purchases gift cards (Scrip) from retailers at a discount. Parishioners & school families buy the gift cards at face value and receive a portion of the discount. The difference in price is credited to your family school tuition balance, Tuition Assistance, Parish Capital Improvements, PREP Class, or any other school – it’s your choice!
How much does Scrip cost?
No additional costs are incurred when you participate in the program and you pay face value for the gift cards.
Example: A family who purchases $250.00 a week in groceries can save $520.00 a year in tuition. That’s almost 2 whole tuition payments! You will receive a receipt with each purchase showing the percentage and amount of the commission. At the end of the month, the credits are applied directly to your tuition account. Plus, other family members can also purchase Scrip for your family. They can purchase from the Trinity Center as well as from a parish outside of OLGC. The other parish will send a quarterly check to our school on behalf of your family.
Purchasing Scrip – In Person OR Online
There are a few ways to purchase Scrip:
1. Visit the Scrip Office located in the Trinity Center and sign up to purchase gift cards. Some of the gift cards are available at the time of purchase and some can be ordered for pick up at a later date.
2. Sign up with our online ShopWithScrip Program that provides a convenient shop at home process to purchase gift cards, ecards and to reload previously purchased gift cards. More information can be found by reading our Online Scrip Information.
The more Scrip you purchase, the more your savings add up!
