How to Register and Order

Green Park families are encouraged to register online at www.shopwithscrip.com to be able to place orders. Each family will select a customer ID and password. Follow these steps to register.

Go to www.shopwithscrip.com

Look for the green box on the left side of the screen titled “Family Sign Up!” Click on “Create Account”.

Follow the simple online instructions and accept the terms and conditions of using the site.

The next screen you will see is titled “Join a Non-Profit”. Before you place an order, you must join Green Park by entering our organization’s Enrollment Code.  Please contact our Scrip Coordinator, Mrs. Sara Hopfer at sara.hopfer@greenparklutheranschool.org for this code.

When you are completed, you will receive a registration confirmation from Great Lakes via email. If orders are placed online at www.shopwithscrip.com, a GPLS Registration Form must be completed and signed for each school year. The GPLS Registration Form can be obtained at school or by contacting the Scrip Coordinator. This directs how the earnings are to be applied and how you want to pick up your cards.

Once you are registered, you can now place your Scrip order online. There is no cost to use www.shopwithscrip.com. This is an order management system only. It does not collect money from families. After you place an order on www.shopwithscrip.com, you are responsible for payment directly to the school.

After you have placed your order, print your completed order form and send it into school with cash or a check made payable to Green Park Lutheran School for the total amount of Scrip before the order deadline. Orders will not be placed without payment.

Dierbergs grocery gift cards are not available through Great Lakes.

However, you may continue to obtain these from the four association congregations or the school office.

Please feel free to visit the Great Lakes website at www.glscrip.com or www.shopwithscrip.com for more information. If you print out the list of retailers, make sure you check it frequently as the retailers/denominations are occasionally changed or deleted.

Scrip Rules & Guidelines

Purpose: The purpose of the Green Park Lutheran School Scrip Program is to provide GPLS families the opportunity to reduce their annual tuition and school fees.

Green Park purchases retail Scrip gift cards through The Great Lakes Scrip Center.

Great Lakes has a free online scrip management service at www.shopwithscrip.com that helps Great Lakes clients manage their scrip programs. Green Park families are encouraged to register online at www.shopwithscrip.com to place their orders. This allows families to order anytime day or night. Scrip can also be purchased through the school office or at the four association congregations. If orders are placed online at www.shopwithscrip.com, a Registration Form must be completed and signed for each school year. This directs how the earnings are to be applied.

Orders will be placed every few weeks. Orders will be due on a Friday and the cards should be ready to pick up/be sent home via backpack the following Friday. Orders received after 3:00 p.m. on the Friday the orders are due will be held until the next order date. Orders will not be placed the week of spring break or Christmas vacation. Days off during the school year may alter the schedule at other times.

Filled orders may be picked up at school on the announced day or may be released to a student. If an order was placed at one of the four association congregations, the order may be picked up in the school office. GPLS accepts no responsibility for gift cards when Scrip orders are released to a student. Students will receive only the gift cards ordered for that designated family.

All Scrip orders must be accompanied by cash or check made payable to “Green Park Lutheran School”. Checks returned due to insufficient funds will incur a $25 fee. If a check is returned insufficient, future sales of Scrip will be discontinued until all payments are received. If additional checks are returned, only cash will be received.

Full dollar value is received with each order and, therefore, does not qualify as a charitable contribution deduction.

Errors in ordering gift cards are the responsibility of the participant and gift cards will not be exchanged.

When Scrip gift cards are received, please verify their accuracy. In the unlikely event you should find a discrepancy in your Scrip order, please contact the Scrip Coordinator on the next school day.

Scrip gift cards are the same as cash, and should be handled accordingly. GPLS will not be responsible for gift cards that are lost, stolen or misplaced while in your (or your child’s) possession. Scrip gift cards are not returnable.

Gift cards can be used just like cash at the participating business. Gift cards may have an expiration date. Expired gift cards are the responsibility of the holder and cannot be traded back. Some stores limit the amount of change returned from a gift card purchase.

Application of Earnings

Each active participant will receive a Scrip statement of purchases and credit earned periodically. If you are registered at www.shopwithscrip.com you may obtain a history of your online orders at any time. Any discrepancies must be brought to the attention of the Scrip coordinator within 7 days. Participants may choose to have 75% of earnings distributed periodically to one of the following options. The remaining 25% will be used to offset administrative costs of running the program.

Tuition reduction or school fees for a specific GPLS family

GPLS PTO

GPLS Tuition Assistance Fund

Example of Earnings:

Smith Family orders one $100 Walmart card with a 2% profit = $2.00

Smith Family orders one $100 Walgreens card with a 7% profit = $7.00

Total Profit = $9.00

75% of Total Profit goes to the Smith Family account = $6.75

25% of Total Profit goes to offset administrative costs of running the program = $2.25

GPLS supporters (faculty and staff, grandparents, extended families, association congregation members, neighbors, community members, etc.) are also encouraged to participate in the program.

Further details are available upon request of the Scrip Coordinator.
