What is Scrip?
The Green Bay Area Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (GBAUUF) purchases gift certificates, or scrip, from popular retailers at a discount, which the retailers are happy to give because they’re guaranteeing themselves customers and some goodwill advertising.
You can then buy the gift certificates from the GBAUUF at face value. The difference in price is kept by GBAUUF. You spend the scrip at the retailer, where it’s worth the full face value; you haven’t spent an extra dime to help GBAUUF, nor have you had to change stores.
How can I order Scrip?
There are three ways to order scrip:
- Buy it a GBAUUF on Sundays after service. Pay by check, cash, or credit card (through PayPal).
- Order online at ShopwithScrip.com. Pay by check, cash, or Presto Pay.
- For orders over $250, contact the GBAUUF Scrip Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org for local delivery. Pay by check, cash, or credit card (through PayPal).
What retailers are available?
There are many local, regional, and national retailers available through the program.
