3. Gift cards and Certificates Purchased through the SCRIP Program
How Does SCRIP Work?
You purchase the cards for face value from the PTO; your gift card is worth face value for purchases; and the Bach PTO earns a rebate.
Hundreds of gift cards are available for purchase through SCRIP. Some will even give you the option for e-cards and reloads. Here is a complete list (PDF, updated September 2018).
Gift cards come in 4 forms:
- Physical gift card
- Reload on a physical gift card
- SCRIP Now (Electronic gift card)
- App on your phone. Sign up for this at myscripwallet.com
