How It Works
You purchase gift cards from MCB at face value, and Amy Kreger orders those cards from Great Lakes
Scrip Center at a reduced price. The difference is an instant rebate towards your chorus expenses.
When you use scrip gift cards at your favorite retailers, you’re fundraising while you shop. Great Lakes
Scrip Center offers over 300 of the country’s biggest brands, including grocery, department stores, gas
stations, restaurants, hotels, and home improvement. It’s time to put your shopping dollars to work!
How to navigate through the website www.shopwithscrip.com
The following options can all be found under Dashboard tab.
Express Orders- This is where you would load your cart with physical gift cards you want Amy to
order for you. Once you are done shopping, click on your shopping cart. You will need to put in your
security pin number you created when you registered. If you signed up for Presto Pay, you will have an
option to pay via Check (at Chorus) or via Presto Pay. Make your appropriate selection and hit Submit.
View ScripNow – Under this tab you will see your virtual scrip wallet. This is where all of your
ScripNow purchases are stored (digital gift cards you order online and receive instantly). Also, you can
see any reloaded gift cards you have recharged -- see the Reloads tab.
How Can I Use My Scrip Account?
Scrip money can be used for almost all your MCB expenses. Examples: dues, AEB’s, Christmas party
and installation dinner, etc. It can’t be used for another fundraiser like show tickets or purchasing
mixed bags, etc. Scrip money can be transferred to another chorus member, donated to the chorus
general fund or Angel fund, but can’t be taken out in cash.
How Do I Redeem My Scrip Money?
On an index card list your name, date, amount and what the money is going to be applied to. Example:
Brook Tucker 11/10/2017 $25.00 Christmas party. Give that card to whomever is collecting for that
expense. Think of it like a check. The chairperson will turn it into Amy who will deduct if from your
scrip account. Blank index cards are usually available in the dues collection box.
How Do I Find Out How Much Money is In My Account?
Amy usually has a balance sheet with her on Tuesday that will give you your balance. There are some
checks and balances between her and our treasurer, so it is not always a live balance.
Fees To Use Scrip
There are a few administration fees that the chorus must cover. The big one is
shipping charges each week. Therefore, the chorus does hold 1% of your purchase price to help with
these fees. Example: if you order $50 in gift cards, the chorus will keep $.50 of your rebate. Also, if
you use Presto Pay there is a $.15 charge per transaction regardless of how many different cards you
