How does scrip work?

St. Patrick Parish participates in the Great Lakes Scrip Program. You create an account; then
through the program you buy gift cards to use when you shop or as gifts When you buy a gift
card through Scrip, the merchant partners rebate a portion of their profit back to the Parish.
Seven percent of the rebate remains with the parish the other 93 percent can be used toward
one of the following:

  1. Tuition Credit
  2. General School Operations
  3. General tuition assistance
  4. St. Patrick School Athletic Association
  5. St. Patrick Parish Grounds
  6. St. Patrick Religious Education

For example, a gift card with an 8% rebate means that on a $25.00 purchase, the Parish will receive $2.00! You still receive the full value of the gift card.

The savings add up fast!

Statistics show that if you use Scrip JUST for groceries and gas, you can earn over $300 per year.  If you use Scrip for dining out, home improvements, online shopping, etc. that number can easily double.  If you enlist grandparents and others to buy scrip and direct their earnings to your account, the sky is the limit!

It's easy to do from home or on-the-go!

  • Scrip Now: e-Gift certificates are available immediately using the PrestoPay or Credit Card payment options. They can be printed out or downloaded to your phone and used electronically.
  • Reloadable Cards: Buy gift cards from our Scrip Program; then reload them on-the-go!
  • Presto Pay: No need to write a check. Funds are transferred electronically!
  • MyScripWallet: Manage orders, buy ScripNow® and reload cards on your phone!

Remember, when you use scrip, you aren’t spending any extra money.  You are simply putting your regular household shopping dollars to work!

The bulk of the discount – from 2 – 15% or more – is divided between the purchaser and St. Patrick School.  As the purchaser, your half is applied as you designate, toward your child’s tuition, tuition assistance program, the Athletic Association, Youth Faith Formation, etc.   Participating merchants are constantly being added; percentages paid fluctuate.  Check the Great Lakes website for current and accurate information.
