Scrip is an easy way to earn money for our fellowship every time you do your shopping. Instead of using cash or credit cards to pay for your purchases, you use Scrip! You pay the face value, but a discount of 2-20% of the face value is rebated to our Fellowship.
How does it work?
Scrip Lady – You can purchase physical Scrip cards from the ‘Scrip Lady’ before or after Sunday services (when we are all able to attend in person), or by phone or email during the Covid-19 crisis—or anytime you are unable to attend services. Cards that we carry in stock can be given to you immediately on Sunday morning, or you can place an order through the Scrip Lady and coordinate a pickup at her home. In special circumstances, we can make arrangements to deliver the cards to you.
Because, shipping charges and other fees may reduce rebates earned by our fellowship, purchasing physical cards through the Scrip Lady is recommended. Purchasing physical cards online should only be used for orders greater than $500 or only if your discount exceeds the shipping cost of your purchase (generally about $8.50) plus fees. The Scrip Coordinator will verify this when your order is released. See more about online ordering below.
Purchasing Online – Purchasing online is a good option if you have a large order (more than $500) or you want to order from a retailer that we don’t carry in stock. SCRIP is available from over 750 vendors, many of which offer large rebates. In many cases you have a choice of either purchasing a physical card, or an eCard which can be downloaded to RaiseRight, the mobile app, and accessed from your smartphone. Not all vendors offer eCards. Click here to see the current list of more than 400 eGift card retailers.
