SCRIP is a term that means “substitute money.” When you purchase SCRIP, you are purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash, which allows you to generate revenue for the school by making regular household purchases you would make anyway. Groceries, clothing, coffee, toys, gifts, even gasoline can be purchased with SCRIP. Cards are purchased at a discount by Cosgriff and then sold to you at face value. There is no additional cost to you.

Plastic Gift Cards
Plastic gift cards are physical gift cards or paper certificates that you purchase. On hand cards can be picked up at the SCRIP Table; all other cards are special order cards and are available the next Wednesday when ordered by Wednesday.
Some retailers offer the option to add funds to an existing plastic gift card. The card must have been purchased from Cosgriff to be eligible for reload. If your order is paid for online with PrestoPay by 1:30pm MST (Monday-Friday) on normal business days, your funds will be available by the next morning. If you pay for your reload order by check, your funds will be available by the morning after your Coordinator releases the order.
Some retailers also offer the option of ordering and printing electronic gift cards (eCards) right from home. Your ScripNow eCard will be delivered directly to your ShopWithScrip.com account in minutes when you pay with PrestoPay. You can print the certificate for use at a retail store location, copy and paste the code at checkout for an online purchase, or send the eCard as a gift to any email address.
