Here are some questions and answers on scrip.....

What is Scrip?

Scrip is a fundraiser that allows you to purchase certificates and "gift cards" good for a stated dollar amount.  You can then go shopping and use the scrip just like money.  A $25 amount of scrip costs you $25 

 

I thought that this was a "fund raiser", how does buying the same amount that the card is worth raise money?

Each company donates a percentage back to the band. Currently companies are giving back from 1.5 % up to 20%.  Each company is at a set percentage, we have those listed on chart below (and on the scrip order form that you can download).  For example you purchase $100 of Farmer Jack scrip, go shopping and can purchase $100 worth of food.  You also get $5 put into student credit (since the Farmer Jack rate is 5%).  In effect, you get a bonus, just for purchasing scrip.

 

 But what if I don't spend $100 on food that one day, will I lose the rest of the money on the scrip that I purchased?

No, because the scrip is usually on a card that looks and works like a debit card. It's electronic  and keeps the remaining balance available for future purchases . 

 

Ok, so what's the catch? (there must be a catch, there always is) 

You're right, you MUST purchase the scrip in advance. In some cases, you will need to give us a few days advanced notice. And approximately 25% of the credit gained goes back to the band for administrative costs.   

 

 

It's only a few dollars here and there, is it really worth the trouble?

Lets look at an example of typical year for a family

Item $ Spent per week Student credit per week Approximate Student credit 
Food (5%) 100 3.75 195.00
Gas (4% Speedway) 10 .26 13.52
Blockbuster (7%) 5 .26 13.52
KFC (9%)  $20 four times a year   5.40
Burger King (4%) $20 four times a year   2.40
Dominos Pizza (5%) $20 four times a year   3.00
Total     $232.84
