2016-2017 SCRIP INFORMATION AND POLICIES
What is SCRIP? Scrip is a fundraising program that lets you earn money for tuition while you shop at all of your favorite stores and let the retailers make the donations! When you purchase SCRIP, you are purchasing gift cards from national and local retailers, the same gift cards available in stores. The SCRIP you purchase through this program generates rebates from the participating retailers since bulk quantities of gift cards from retail merchants are purchased at a discount and are sold to participating families at face value. The discount received from each merchant varies, therefore, the amount of rebate also varies.
This is an exciting opportunity for all families of the Belvoir Christian Academy (BCA) community to accumulate rebates in the form of tuition credit. Other friends of BCA also accumulate rebates with options for redeeming. To get enrolled and participate, there is no out-of-pocket expense to you and you do not have to sell anything.
You can use SCRIP for everyday purchases like food, gas, clothing, and other essentials, and with every purchase, you earn money for BCA. Hundreds of popular retailers participate in SCRIP including Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club, Kohl’s, Pizza Hut, Chili’s, Walgreens, Whole Foods, and many more. Check out the complete list of retailers at www.shopwithscrip.com and then put your shopping dollars to work at BCA.
How Do I Enroll in the SCRIP Sales and Rebate Program? Getting started is easy. Fill out the 2016-2017 SCRIP Program Agreement and Enrollment Form (parent/guardian or nonparent) to ensure proper credit for your child or account. Completed forms should be returned to SCRIP@bcacademy.net or BCA’s Front Office at 800 Belvoir Avenue, Chattanooga, TN 37412 (Fax 423-622-0177).
What is "ScripNow!"? ScripNow! Is the fastest and easiest way to purchase Scrip. You can order for yourself or send an eGift in seconds for various retailers. ScripNow! can be delivered and used in minutes simply by using PrestoPay , or pay by cash/check and we can release the order for you.
Can I just Use the Order Form? Yes! On Tuesday mornings, you can also send in a paper order form (use Parent Registration form or Non-Parent Registration form) or outside the front office of the school) with payment and we will process your order manually.
What About Inventory Purchases? A limited number of Scrip cards will be available at BCA for immediate purchase on a first come, first served basis each week. You will still receive credit as long as we have a completed enrollment form on file. If there are specific cards you would like to see in inventory , please let us know.
How Do I Get My Order? You may pick-up your order or purchase inventory at BCA on Tuesday from 7:30-8:15 a.m. and 3-4:00 p.m.). Online orders placed by Tuesday morning will be available for pickup on the following Friday. In order for your student to bring home Scrip orders, we will need written permission from you (on the registration form you submit). Orders being sent with students from infant through 5th grade will be delivered to the classrooms to be put into folders. Older students will receive orders in their classrooms. BCA is not responsible for lost Scrip cards once they are given to your child.
Please be aware of the risk involved in sending certificates home with students or by sending them in the mail. Belvoir Christian Academy will not accept responsibility for lost, stolen, or misplaced SCRIP certificates.
How do I Place An Order? WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO ORDER ONLINE. Online ordering is convenient - orders can be placed anytime. Online ordering also gives you access to all participating retailers in the program for best selection. It also allows for accurate tracking of your credits and is safe and secure.
Credit may be used only for tuition. If your child leaves BCA for any reason, your SCRIP credit may be used toward your outstanding tuition balance, toward another family’s account, or as a donation to the BCA Scholarship Fund. If you are transferring to a Christian School in another city, you may have your credits forwarded to your new school.
Because the SCRIP certificates are actual gift certificates, they are to be treated as cash. If they are lost or stolen, it is not possible to replace them.
The SCRIP program will run weekly during the school year except during fall break, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and spring break. Cards are available for purchase in the main lobby on Tuesday, until further notice. Online ordering and SCRIP is available through shopwithscrip.com anytime.
SCRIP rebates will be credited to each registrant’s tuition account two times per year. SCRIP statements will be sent home with your child or mailed to you four times per year. Credits for the 2016-2017 school year will be issued January 20, 2017 and July 20, 2017. If you pay tuition annually, you may deduct any SCRIP credits accrued to date.
Non-sufficient fund checks will incur a fee of $35. The fee will be deducted from your SCRIP earnings if available, or must be paid before you can place another SCRIP order. If three NSF checks are tendered on your SCRIP account in the same year, you will be suspended from ordering privileges.
