Dunkin Donuts gift cards are now available for purchase in the scrip office. We have $10 gift cards in stock and $25 cards can be ordered.  They are giving back 3%.

Baskin Robbins is also available.  They do not do the traditional plastic gift cards but I can order on an as needed basis e-certificates for Baskin Robbins that are emailed to the scrip office and printed out for your use.  These certificates can be ordered in increments of $5 starting at a minimum of $5.  The rebate on these certificates is 2%.

Please remember to call or email the scrip office with your orders and with any questions you might have.   There are no walk in sales for scrip at the parish office at this time. We will be happy to help you with your holiday shopping.  Let us order the gift cards for you and you can stay safe and out of multiple stores and let the parish makes some much needed funds with the gift card sales.

Lucky Bamboo has increased their rebate back to St. Francis to 10%.

Available from now until December 28th or while supplies last our scrip clearing house will be offering some lower denomination cards that are not normally available.  These cards will need to be ordered and will not be kept in stock in the scrip office.  You may call or email your order to the scrip office or drop off your order at the parish office (after hours please use the mail slot to the side of the front door.
Low cards denomination specials:  Amazon, Applebee’s, Meijer, Olive Garden, Target and Walmart in $10 increments and Barnes and Noble, Panera Bread, Starbucks and Taco Bell will be available for order in $5 increments.  Regular denominations are still available as usual.

Let scrip be your one stop shopping for the holidays instead of going to multiple stores.  You can also order from store websites using your gift card.  Your credit card numbers are then kept safe.

The first scrip reports were emailed to families over a 2 day period last Thursday and Friday. If you had scrip credit AND your signed scrip agreement you should have received a report. If you did not
get a report and feel you should have, please contact the scrip office. The Roncalli Catholic Schools system will receive the credit amounts and payments shortly so if you have any questions
on your report please let us know asap. Also of note, during the pandemic we have had to order slightly different, some nationwide vendors that we normally order directly from to get a higher
rebate where shut down or limited on ordering so we went to Great Lakes, a nationwide clearing house, in order to get those vendors in house. Most vendors are getting back on track and we will
hopefully be able to begin ordering from vendors with higher rebate percentages soon. We are also still limited on days of the week that we can place orders from Great Lakes. They are hoping to
open that up before the holidays. The pandemic prevented us from having informational meetings for new parents about scrip. It is not too late to sign up or to grow your scrip rebates. Please contact us if you would like more
information about scrip and how it can help you lower your school expenses. The pandemic also changed our shopping habits as we were not traveling as much or eating out as much etc. We are
changing to a fiscal year reporting system this year so the scrip year will go to June 30th of 2021 so you have more time to add to your rebates using your everyday shopping and hopefully make up
for some of the unexpected changes the pandemic brought with it. We did have 2 families that had rebates in the $700+ range and 1 in the $800+ range so there are endless possibilities for what you
can earn by being diligent. Christmas shopping will be coming up soon, that is a great time to add to your rebates. Instead of going into the stores let us help you with a gift certificate to give or to
use when ordering on line so that you don’t have to give out your credit card information. Shopwithscrip.com has a complete list of all vendors available from them on their website due to
space limitations our weekly order form only lists the local businesses and the most often ordered out of town vendors. You can check out their website or give us a call to see if a vendor is available.
At this time the only vendor that lets you pay your store credit card account using scrip is Kohls. The cards we have are their fundraising gift cards so while a regular Kohls card cannot be used for
payment the scrip cards can. Watch for your next newsletter for more information about the new app that Shop with Scrip has and some other changes that are upcoming. If you would like more information about using the
app or setting up you own account online before that newsletter please contact us.


Thank you, Angela and Cindi

KWIK TRIP is running another 10% sale on their gift cards.  Starting Feb. 1 until Feb 28th all Kwik Trip gift cards purchased will receive a rebate of 10% rather than the usual 5%.  This is a great time to add more rebates to your account.

Thank you to Patti Dempsky for picking up, helping to fill and returning the school scrip orders on Tuesdays since the start of the school year, she is unable to continue with a change in her work schedule.  We are very appreciative of Patti’s help this year. Thank you to Jennifer Kozak for stepping in and helping us out on Tuesdays going forward.

Second grade parents have or will be receiving a coupon for 10% off for the Greatest Gift.  Scrip can be ordered for the Greatest Gift your upcoming First Communion needs including dresses.  You may use the coupon along with scrip!

Don’t forget with the ever increasing cost of tuition, scrip is more important then ever.  The scrip year will end on May 15th, you have until then to add to your scrip credit.  This is as close to “free money” as you can get. You pay no more than you regularly do for your normal expenses such as gas and groceries and the vendors return rebates to St. Francis for your account.  Be assured Scrip will be around with the change to Roncalli Catholic Schools. Details are being finalized now and more information will follow.

Any questions please contact the scrip office at 652-7835 or email us at [email protected].
