Want to know how you can save on your band fees this year???

USE SCRIP!!

If you get in the habit of purchasing scrip regularly, you can earn enough that your out of pocket fees can be greatly reduced!  And this is money you would spend anyway for groceries, gas, household goods, restaurants, clothes, hardware, you name it!  We sell scrip for hundreds of merchandisers, with earnings rates from 1.5% to 13% or more!  Here’s how it works:

You purchase gift cards (scrip) for the face value, and you received the full value of the card.  So a $100 Dierbergs card costs you $100, and you can purchase $100 worth of groceries at any Dierbergs.  BUT, the card costs the band only $95, so $5 is earned without spending any more than you already were planning to spend.  Of those $5 earnings, 75% ($3.75) goes directly towards your student’s band fees!  The remaining 25% ($1.25) goes to the band general fund.  Super easy!  No selling, no out of pocket spending besides your normal budgeted amounts.  If you do that each week for 10 weeks of marching, you’ve earned $37.50, just by purchasing groceries you were already going to purchase.  If you buy additional cards for additional retailers, your earnings just grow from there!  The full list of local retailers is available by clicking on the links above.  Each retailer is listed with the denominations available and what the earnings rate is.  Higher percentage earnings mean more dollars earned for your student.  The interactive form is simple to use, just enter the quantity of cards you wish for each vendor/denomination, and the math is done for you.

We keep many cards in inventory, so there is no waiting period to get these cards; you fill out the order form and receive the cards instantly, ready to use on your next shopping trip.  These inventory items are the most popularly purchased, and are indicated on the order form with an asterisks (*) next to them.

We also order cards that are not kept in inventory; these have a one week turnaround time.  And there are many other vendors on the Scrip company websites for retailers that are not in the local area (and therefore not on the form) but may be in a location to which you are heading and can be added to the form.  These can be viewed/searched at https://www.shopwithscrip.com.

Looking for gift ideas?  Scrip makes great gifts for family, friends, teachers, co-workers, etc. for their birthdays, anniversaries, appreciate without any fuss.

After band camp we will schedule new times when scrip cards can be purchased. 

If you are a first time participant, you will need to fill out the enrollment form and return with your first order. 

It’s just that easy!  We look forward to seeing lots of your faces purchasing scrip and earning your band fees this year!!
