And when you get your family and friends in on the program, too, your savings could be even higher! Did you know that SCRIP can be ordered online? ShopWithScrip.com is the online ordering system that we use to making buying SCRIP more convenient for families.

Examples of Tuition Savings
Your total SCRIP tuition pay down is calculated once annually and applied to your account in either February, May, or December depending on how you pay your tuition. We have families who earn enough SCRIP pay down to cover 2+ months of tuition! You may vary your order and frequency of ordering as much as you like, and you can always invite friends and family to order SCRIP cards to lower your tuition, as well. Listed below are just a couple of examples of the savings possibilities during a typical year.
- Purchasing $100 per week of King Soopers gift certificates (which are reloadable to make it even easier for you) at 3% for a year; $156 is credited toward your tuition account for that year (3% x $100 x 52 weeks)
- Purchasing $100 per week of Chili’s/Macaroni Grill gift certificates at 9% for a year: $468 is credited toward your account for that year (9% x $100 x 52 weeks)
- Purchasing with money from sales to 10 families and friends at $1000 every week at an average of 4% SCRIP allocation: $2080 is credited toward your tuition account for that year (4% x $1000 x 52 weeks)

Pick Up or Print Your Cards
Some merchants provide the option of an “eCard” which allows you to purchase a card and print it out immediately.
If a merchant does not offer that option, or if you would prefer a physical card, cards can be picked up at the SCRIP table, which is located in Holy Grounds Café, next to the elementary office, during normal SCRIP hours. Cards will be delivered to the school in the denomination you ordered and will be available for you at the SCRIP table, typically within a week of placing your online order. Remember, too, that cards are always available at the SCRIP table and order forms are available from any of the offices, if you prefer not to order online.
