Scrip/Grocery FAQ's

What is Scrip?

Scrip is the terminology used for gift cards that are purchased by families to help lower both our school’s overall tuition, and your family’s tuition. The proceeds also help add to our scholarship fund.

How scrip generates revenue for you?

The Great Lakes Scrip Center acts on behalf of churches, schools and other non‑profit organizations to purchase large amounts of scrip from grocery stores, department stores, and other retailers. Because the scrip is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. Our organization buys the scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a discount, and re-sells the certificates to families like yours for full face value. The discount ‑ from two to fifteen percent or more – is our organization’s revenue. It’s a win-win situation for you and our school as it keeps tuition costs down and adds to our scholarship fund.

How do I register?

There is no official registration process for the manual/paper system, you may order either through school and/or church. To place online orders, you must log onto www.shopwithscrip.com to register.

What is the difference between scrip and grocery?

Grocery cards for our local stores are purchased locally from Weis, Giant, and Kennie’s and we do not go through a 3rd party provider to obtain the cards. “Scrip cards” are all other retailer cards that we buy from Great Lakes Scrip, LLC such as for dept. stores, restaurants, retailers, etc.

When can I order scrip?

Orders for scrip (non-grocery cards) are filled on Monday and Friday. Grocery cards are filled Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. You may also purchase from the parish office during business hours and Saturdays and Sundays after masses.

Note: other family, friends, parishioners may also purchase scrip on your behalf by listing your student’s name on their order form.

How do I order?

Currently we have one way of ordering grocery cards: Fill out a form from the website and choose your grocery amounts. If in stock, your cards will be delivered through the your child’s classroom and sent home in their backpack on M,W & F. To order scrip cards, simply fill out the form on the website labeled scrip order form. When in stock, your scrip cards ordered Monday will be delivered Monday or Friday. If you like to go paperless, you may order your scrip cards (all non-grocery retailers) online at www.shopwithscrip.com. See FAQ regarding online ordering below.

Why is my order marked backorder?

If you do not receive your cards it is because we are either out of stock or do not carry that particular card in our inventory. If you do not receive your cards for any reason, you may contact the school office. The most popular gift cards are kept in stock but you can log onto www.glscrip.com and search for additional retailers if you are looking for a card not listed on our order form.

What if I do not want my scrip cards coming home with my student?

If you wish to pick up your scrip cards at the school office, please clearly mark on your order form - PICK UP AT SCHOOL. Cards will be available for pick up through the school office Monday-Friday 8AM-4PM.

View your current and year to date tuition reduction and contribution to the school live as you order (remember you get 50% of the total discount listed, the other 50% goes to the school as a whole). If you use the manual paper system, your orders can not be tracked online. Express Add and favorites can also be used with the online order system.

Why do I not see my manual paper orders online?

All manual and paper orders made through school or church must be added on to your final tuition reduction at the end of the year.

I placed my order online on Sunday night and did not receive my order from the school on Monday?

All orders are processed just like the regular scrip program, however, if you ordered a card not in our regular inventory we must place the order on your behalf. In this situation you should receive your order no later than Friday of the same week. Occasionally cards are on back order from the supplier.

Can I obtain grocery cards from Weis, Giant or Kennie’s online?

At this time you can not because these are local providers. Please note there is a Giant listed on the shop with scrip website but that is not our local Giant provider.

What is the cut off time and date for ordering online?

If you order cards by Monday at 8:00AM at the start of the school day, we will process your order through our inventory (whenever available). Any orders turned in after the start of the school day will be filled on the next Friday.

What Is Scrip?

Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase scrip, you’re purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash. You can use scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials, and with every purchase, you earn revenue for our organization.
