Vendor updates:

 Walgreens has lowered their rebate percentage to 5.

Olive Garden (Darden Cards) can no longer be used at Red Lobster.  Please order Red Lobster by writing it in on the weekly order form.

Business Closings:

Hardees in Manitowoc has closed.  We do still have some cards in stock which can be used at any Hardees nationwide.  If you will be traveling for basketball games etc. and might be stopping at a Hardees we would appreciate your ordering a card or two and helping out the scrip office.

Book World is closing.  They will start a closing sale now and be open until the store is more or less empty.  We can’t estimate how long that might be.  If you would like to help us out in the scrip office we have 5 of the $10 certificates on hand and 3 of the $25 certificates on hand.  We have checked with Book World and you can use the gift certificates towards purchases.  We however can no longer purchase gift certificates through our scrip program. 

St. Francis Updates:

Don’t forget about the low denomination scrip vendors that are available for the Christmas season (or until sold out).  Check your last scrip email for a list of those vendors.

To help with your holiday shopping we will be stocking in the daily box a limited amount of $50 Walmart cards and $25 Amazon cards.  As we see the volume we are going through we may be able to update the amount carried.  You can be sure to get what you want by placing a weekly order.  Please note that if you order on a daily order forms and we don’t have them on hand we will either return the money or in the case of Walmart substitute with the $25 cards. 

The parish office will be open for scrip sales all day on Wed. Nov. 22nd (in the past we have closed at noon) as well as 6 to 8 pm during the holiday parade.  We hope this will give you a chance to see any ads for Black Friday and be able to purchase scrip for those shopping trips.  Holiday shopping and traveling is a great time to really add to your scrip profit amounts.  Remember we have a number of businesses that we can order scrip now (certificates that are emailed to us in minutes) and cards that we can reload for different amounts to help with quick turn-around or if you are looking for different denominations for shopping or gift giving needs.  For example we can get scrip now certificates in $100 amount for Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart in minutes or if you wanted to give the babysitter a $20 for Starbucks while you still can order 2 cards we can also reload $10 onto the card you purchase so you only have to handle one card.  Not all businesses do the scrip now or reloads, and not all do the orders in the same dollar amount please call the scrip office with any questions.  Scrip is now also being sold all day at the parish office now during office hours.  This will not change how the daily orders are handled or Friday am walk in sales at the schools at this time.  Please note the office sales are manned by volunteers.  The scrip now and reloading of cards has to be done through the scrip office and it’s possible we might not be immediately available.   If we are not available when you come in please leave your email address with the volunteers and we will email the scrip now certificate to you as soon as possible.  If you currently have a card on file that you have been reloading you can just pay for the order with the volunteer recording the vendor and dollar amount to reload and we order the reload.  If you are purchasing a new card to be reloaded you may take the card with you but  we need the 16 digit number from the back of the card to register it the first time and to do the reload, so please have the volunteer record that number with your sale. Most scrip now and reloads are done in $10 increments not $25.

Watch for your next scrip reports mid Nov.
