Q: What is Scrip and how does it work?

A: A fast and easy way for you to earn rebates to apply towards your tuition, fees and/or for your school or parish! The beauty of Scrip is that you put your regular household shopping dollars to work. You earn money towards your tuition and/or fees without spending an extra penny. Scrip can be used for just about any household purchase including groceries, gasoline, dining out, entertainment or even to pay some bills.
Scrip is a program offered by Great Lakes Scrip called Shopwithscrip that St. Michael School participates in. Scrip is simply a word that means “substitute money”. In other words, Scrip is gift certificates from national and local retailers. Hundreds of popular retailers participate in our Scrip program including Meijer, Shell Gas, Speedway, Cuginos and many, many others.
The program is simple – Scrip participating retailers agree to sell gift certificates to our organization at a discount. Families like yours buy the certificates for full face value, they redeem them for full face value, and you and our school share the difference/rebate.

Q: Where do my earned rebates go? 

A: All Scrip rebates earned must be applied to an account within the parish or school. Rebates earned will be applied to the program account of your choice listed below:
School Tuition
Preschool Tuition
Religious Education Tuition
Childcare Fees
Another families tuition or fees
School or Parish Endowment Funds
Tuition Assistance Fund
Future account – You may begin earning rebates now for use in the future when you child starts preschool/school.

Q: How are my rebates calculated? 

A: The rebate amount offered by the retailer to St. Michael School is divided between the school and the purchaser. Our school retains 14%, which goes toward the annual school budget and helps to cover expenses to run the program. Our families keep the remaining 86% of the difference.  

Scrip Rebate Configuration Example:

Sale – Bath & Body Works $100 @13% total rebate = $13.00
St. Michael School = $1.82 14% of total rebate
Family earns = $11.18         86% of total rebate 
 
Sale  - Meijer  $100 @3% total rebate = $3
St. Michael School = $.42   14% of total rebate 
Family earns = $2.58           86% of total rebate

Q: When are my rebates applied to my account? 

A: Rebates earned for purchases are applied on a monthly basis; purchases made the month prior will be applied to your account the following month. Rebates earned will be applied to your account on or near the 15th of every month. 

-------

Q: What happens to my earned rebates if I am no longer in a program? 

A: If you leave a program and have rebates remaining on your account or waiting to be applied, you may apply them to an account of your choosing or they will default to the Parish endowment. No cash reimbursements will be made to participants for rebates earned.
