Forget about traditional fundraisers that involve selling or spending extra money. With scrip fundraising, you can easily earn money for SPYHA and reduce your membership fee while you shop!
Simply use scrip gift cards for everyday purchases and earn a rebate on each one at no additional cost. Cards from your favorite places and companies are available for gas, shopping, dining and more!
Families may purchase scrip cards through the Great Lakes Scrip Center (GLSC) website. Hundreds of retailers are available, and creating an account is simple.
In addition, the Scrips Coordinator keeps a limited supply of cards on hand that you can purchase directly. These are either cards typically in high demand that may be requested for immediate pickup (KwikTrip, Piggly Wiggly) or those not available through the website (Culvers, Milios Sandwiches, Woodmans). For these, contact the Coordinator (email preferred) and indicate what you'd like.
There are two ways to pay for your cards:
No. You may purchase cards online anytime, but the orders are placed into a queue under the association’s name and do not ship out immediately. The cards will ship out in bulk when the Scrips Coordinator releases an order, which is done on the 1st and 15th of each month. All of cards ship to the Coordinator, - usually arriving 3-5 days after the order is released. The Coordinator will email families once the cards are sorted and ready for pickup.
Sidenote: If you pay for ScripNow cards online with PrestoPay they will be available in your Dashboard almost instantly! This is great. At Target or shopping online? Total up your cart, login to GLSC, grab a ScripNow to cover the amount and pay with PrestoPay. Your gift card will be delivered by the time you get to the register.
That depends on the card/retailer; typical rebates vary from 2% up to 15% or more! Keep an eye on the GLSC website - they run weekly promotions and specials with increased rebates on select cards.
25% of the total rebate amount goes to the association, to be used for all things hockey! The remaining 75% is placed into an account for your family to apply at SPYHA registration.
The Scrips Coordinator tracks your rebate totals and enters them into an account for you. Shortly before registration opens up for the new season (typically mid-August) you will receive an email with your total balance and a coupon code. Simply enter your coupon code at checkout of hockey registration and your credit amount will be subtracted from your total.
Any unused balance will remain in your account and can be applied to future years/payments.
No. Think of this as Disney Dollars - they're only good at SPYHA.
Contact the Scrips Coordinator to inquire about your balance or anything else. The GLCS website will track your purchases and rebates - but keep in mind that this is the total rebate amount, and also does not include any purchases of on-hand cards you get directly from the Coordinator.
For any additional questions please contact your Scrips Coordinator - Jason Hanko
