Hi boosters!
What’s the easiest and cheapest way to help the band, orchestra, and color guard raise funds? Scrip! Just purchase gift cards at face value for stores where you plan to shop, and a percentage of the money you spend will go back to support our kids. 

The holidays are coming! Here are some creative ways you can use Scrip while gearing up for the holidays:
-Planning a Halloween party? Use Scrip for Stater Bros., Albertsons, or Walmart to buy your Halloween candy.
-Office party coming up? Get your food at Panera, Subway, or Chipotle and pay with a Scrip gift card.
-If you’re traveling for Thanksgiving, there’s Scrip for gas stations, major airlines, car rentals, hotels, and sites like Hotels.com.
-Treat someone on their birthday with a Scrip restaurant gift card to just about anywhere from Applebee’s to Yard House.
-And of course, gift cards make great gifts! You can buy cards from almost 1,000 different stores and businesses through Scrip! You can also shop for gifts with Scrip cards to Amazon.com.

Anyone who chooses to participate can use Scrip to count towards a student’s fair-share donation for marching band/color guard, as well as band/orchestra classes other than marching band. Get the grandparents and the whole family involved! It’s possible to take care of your ENTIRE fair-share donation for the year just by using Scrip!

Once you’ve signed up once, purchasing Scrip is super-easy. If you haven’t signed up yet, here are step-by-step instructions:
1. Go online to www.shopwithscrip.com 
2. Click on the green box that says “Get Started”. (It’s at the top right corner)
3. Click on the blue box that says “Join Your Existing Program”.
4. Enter our enrollment code: 1ECC795911657
5. Create a user name and password, and enter your information, then click “Register”
6. Enter a phone number to receive a confirmation code. Once you’ve entered that, you’re done registering.

Now you’re ready to shop! In many cases, you can buy Scrip cards that are ready to print instantly, or refill gift cards you already have. If you prefer, you can have your cards mailed and delivered through our Scrip coordinator, Timberly Axelrod. Scrip orders are shipped about every two weeks—this month’s due dates for Scrip orders are Oct. 10 and Oct. 24—and there is a small shipping fee. Other than that, supporting this fundraiser doesn’t cost anything! You get the full value of your gift card purchase, and the businesses rebate a percentage back to REV Band Boosters.

The more families that participate in the Scrip program, the better it is for our booster program. Please sign up today and start shopping with Scrip!
