Our next GREAT LAKES SCRIP ORDER order will be placed SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 6th! 

This is a great way to reduce your band account balance by earning "free money" from your purchases using gift cards from Scrip.
Think about your holiday shopping needs, teacher gifts AND your everyday items like grocery cards, gas cards, house hold goods.  Would you like a percentage of your purchases to offset your band account balance?

This fundraiser is the answer!!  Click Here: www.shopwithscrip.com

Some of the most popular retailers are Amazon, Belk, Whole Foods, Target, Kohls, Regal Theaters, Many Many Fast Food Chains, Southwest Air, Delta,  Best Western Hotels, Home Goods, Food Lion, Honey Baked Ham... Starbucks. There are over 300 Retailers to choose from!!

Scrip will be having a Special Day on October 31st where the rebate percentages will be even higher on many retailers.
Please have your order placed and paid for either by check or the Presto Payment (Preferred) by midnight November 6th. The order should be ready for you at the November Band Booster Meeting or after November 10th.   


WHAT IS SCRIP?  Great Lakes Scrip Center offers gift cards to over 300 of the country’s biggest brands, including grocery, department stores, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, home improvement, and more. Just by using Scrip to pay for your normal purchases, you can easily help your band accounts balances.  A complete listing of participating companies is available at www.shopwithscrip.com.


HOW DOES IT WORK?  Scrip cards are regular gifts cards sold to us at a discounted rate and the difference between the face value and discounted amount is credited to the chapter's bank account.   For example, if you purchased $100 Belk gift card, you pay $100 for the card, but Belk donates 8% ($8.00) to your band account.-- EASY!
WHAT TYPE OF GIFT CARDS ARE AVAILABLE?  Script has three different options for purchasing gift cards.  Many companies offer all 3 gift card options but the options available vary by company.


1. Physical Gift Cards:  We order these as a group several times a year.  You order these cards online any time during the month then a ADHS BAND group order is submitted. (typically a week before our monthly  meetings).  Either pay for your cards at the time of ordering by presto-pay or deliver a check prior to the order to our scrip coordinator (see details below).  You’ll receive an email about 1 week in advance of order placement as a reminder.  In a few days, we’ll receive the group’s gift cards and distribute them to you.  Physical gift cards are great for gifts or for planned (and controlled) spending.


2. Scrip Now E-Card:  Make purchases through your phone/computer/tablet and these cards are available usually within minutes of purchase.  Your account must be set up for presto-pay (debit from your checking account) to purchase Script Now cards.  These are perfect for those unplanned restaurant dinners or if you don’t like keeping money tied up in physical gift cards!


3. Reload:  Order a re-loadable physical card and once your card arrives, you have the flexibility to add money to the card anytime!  These gift cards work well for places you regularly shop.


GETTING STARTED:  Set up your own personal account at www.shopwithscrip.com and link to the Athens Drive Band Boosters with the enrollment code 3BDECC2F2L1L .  Feel free to call us if you have problems and we will  help you through the process. Scrip has very helpful staff and how to videos too.


You can pay with your presto-pay account (preferred method-allow 2-3 business days to set up prior to your first scrip order)  or with a check to Athens Drive Band Boosters. If paying by check, please deliver your payment to me before the order date to be included in the order. 
Do you still have questions , please email Susan or me.
Happy Shopping!
