SCRIP FAQs

  • How do I participate?

    Posted by:

    We are asking every Campus School family to participate in this program!

    You will be able to order gift cards on a weekly basis (through a Paper Order Form or directly online), and you will receive your gift cards at the end of the week.

    This program is year round, so you can continually shop using gift cards and earn our school credit. Whether you buy weekly, monthly or stock up for gifts, before holidays or prior to special home projects - EVERY opportunity to pay using SCRIP gift cards will help our school.

    Additionally, our in-house 'SCRIP Store' carries select cards onsite in the school's main office. You can stop by anytime to buy gift cards! There is no wait.

  • Can my friends & extended family participate?

    Posted by:

    Absolutely! The more people we can get involved in SCRIP, the more rewards we can earn. Please provide your friends and family with a copy of the SCRIP Order Form. They can send it in with your child, drop it off personally at the school, or mail it in to:

     

    SCRIP Program Coordinator
    The Carlow Campus School
    3333 5th Avenue
    Pittsburgh, PA 15213

     

    All orders will come back to them through your preference, as designated on your SCRIP Release Form.  Which is filled out one time per year, per family.

  • What is the SCRIP Release Form?

    Posted by:

    The SCRIP Release Form is a yearly form that you submit, letting us know how you would like to receive your gift cards. All ordered gift cards can be sent home with your child OR they can be picked up in the main office. You must fill out this form, one time per year only, so that we have a record of your preference. We will not release any gift cards to children without prior permission.

  • Can I just reload my SCRIP gift cards, instead of ordering new cards each time?

    Posted by:

    Yes! A number of vendors offer reloadable gift cards. For these vendors, you must originally purchase one regular plastic card. Then, for all future orders you specify the amount you want reloaded onto your card under the ‘Reload’ feature for that vendor. You will be prompted to enter the card number and designate a card name.

    Once you place your reload order online, you must still submit your payment to the school (via check or Presto Pay). You will find the reload amount applied to your card’s balance when the school’s purchase order goes through for that week.

    A list of the vendors that offer reloadable cards can be found at www.shopwithscrip.com/shop by filtering the Card Type to 'Reload' OR use the Reload icon icon.

    You are encouraged to register cards with the vendor company if you are using the reload feature, to protect your card & its balances from being lost or stolen. You will also be able to view transaction histories for many of these companies.

  • Can I eliminate plastic gift cards and just receive an eCard?

    Posted by:

    Yes! Many vendors offer eCards that can be printed or loaded directly onto your smart phone, this is called ScripNow.

    To view the list of vendors offering eCards, go to www.shopwithscrip.com/shop and click on the ScripNow ScripNow icon icon.

    Once you place your ScripNow order online, you must still submit your payment to the school (via check or Presto Pay). You will receive e-mail notification when your eCard is ready to be printed and used.  These e-cards will come to you much sooner than plastic cards, often in minutes.

    (Note: You can also use the ScripNow eCard feature to send eGifts to other people! They will receive an e-mail notification that they have an eCard available for printing and use.)

  • When will I receive my ordered cards?

    Posted by:

    All orders are submitted to the organization on a weekly basis. The Campus School collects and submits orders on Tuesdays. The orders are then distributed to you on Friday afternoons.  (Note: there are occasional exceptions to this, relating to closures and holidays).

    ‘Reloads’ and ‘ScripNow’ cards are received much sooner. These orders are sent directly to your existing gift card or to your email as soon as our order is processed with the company. You do not have to wait for shipping & delivery. Typically, you will get them on Tuesday night of the week you placed your order if you pay by check. You will get them in minutes if you pay via Presto Pay.

  • Will my gift cards expire?

    Posted by:

    Most of the gift cards do not have an expiration date. However, to be certain, all of the retailer’s show you views of their gift cards online. You can view any retailer’s gift card (front and back) by going to www.shopwithscrip.com/Shop. Click on the retailer and then click on ‘View Card Terms.’

  • Bottom line, how much will our school earn with SCRIP?

    Posted by:

    This depends solely upon how much our friends & families use it! Each retailer offers a different percentage back. The more people involved, the more we can earn.

    In extreme cases, one person can buy $5000-$10,000 worth of Home Depot SCRIP for a kitchen remodel, immediately earning our school $200-$400 or another person might buy Disney gift cards to fund their whole Disney vacation.

    More likely, you will change your family’s spending habits and purchase all of your gas/groceries/clothing/home goods on a weekly or monthly basis by using SCRIP cards for all of these routine purchases. For example, one person might buy $1500-$2000 month across a variety of cards and earn our school $60-$200.

  • Why am I receiving emails from the Scrip Company? Can I stop them?

    Posted by:

    Yes. Once you begin participating in the SCRIP Program, your e-mail becomes part of the operations for the program. The Scrip Company then uses our accounts for their general advertisements. Our apologies, be we do not have control over the program’s distribution list. To unsubscribe to these e-mails, please click on the ‘SafeUnsubscribe’ tab at the very bottom of their e-mail.
