We’re pleased to share some exciting news about a new service for our ACES families. It’s called “scrip”, and it’s the program that earns ACES money while you shop.
Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money” – in other words, scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. They’re the same gift certificates that you buy at the store. Many popular retailers participate in our scrip program including JC Penney, The Gap, Shell, Pizza Hut, Red Lobster and many, many others.
You’re probably asking yourself how these stores help us raise money. It’s simple -- scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to ACES at a discount. Member families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and our school keeps the difference as revenue. And scrip is exciting, because everybody wins:
The retailer gets cash up front and repeat business…
You are able to earn money for ACES with your normal everyday purchases…
The beauty of scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money for ACES without spending a single additional penny. Just spend your regular shopping dollars with scrip at the stores that participate in the scrip program! And scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including food, clothing, entertainment, gasoline and even dining out.
Thanks for your support!
