Shop with Scrip
Don’t forget! If you are doing online shopping for the Holidays this year or any time of the year, start your shopping at www.shopwithscrip.com and use the enrollment code to earn rebate money for ACS! It’s so easy. Please consider using scrip for all of your online shopping this year or for your gift card needs. Please contact the PTO for our unique enrollment code.
Some of the retailers included: Amazon, Dennis Uniform, Land’s End, Office Depot, Office Max, Target, Barnes and Noble, Toys R Us, Kohl’s, iTunes and many more!
To give you an example, one family shopped online at Amazon, Kohl’s, and Toys R Us this holiday season. By purchasing their gift cards through Scrip to pay for their online items, ACS earned $89.08. They still received the full face value of the retailer gift card, but the retailers gave the school a percentage of each card purchased. Many of the retailers offer Scrip Now cards which can be instantly downloaded to use online or printed out for quick in-store purchases.
This year we are excited to be partnering with a fun, free, and truly easy fundraiser called Shoparoo!
