PAY YOUR FEES WITH SCRIP!! The Everyday Way to Make an Impact…
Student fees add up, we know! That’s why WHEUPA proudly offers gift card fundraising - also known as SCRIP! Pay for everyday purchases by using gift cards from hundreds of retailers and earn money that goes directly to your student.
Buy a gift card…Earn funds…Spend gift card…IT’S REALLY THAT SIMPLE!!
WHAT IS SCRIP?
It’s a convenient way to fundraise for your own student! Purchase physical and e-gift cards online through ShopWithScrip at www.shopwithscrip.com and a percentage of each gift card purchase goes back into your student’s WHEU account to be used to offset the expense of registration, extra uniforms, gear and WHEU wear, and the end-of-year banquet!
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
Send an email to WHEUPA scrip coordinator, Melinda Ou, at email@example.com requesting WHEUPA’s enrollment code.
Once you have enrolled, please send an email to Melinda Ou with the name used to create your ShopwithScrip account and the name of your student. From there, we will ensure that your student’s account is properly credited for purchases that you make.
HOW DO I PAY FOR MY PURCHASE?
Shop With Scrip offers three payment options:
Credit card (2.60% fee);
Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) using PrestoPay ($.15 fee per transaction);
or pay by check made out to WHEUPA (this method requires additional processing time)
I’VE PLACED AN ORDER, NOW WHAT?
If you have purchased an e-gift card, the credit should appear in your dashboard account within minutes. Shop as you would with normally, but pay using your new gift card.
If your purchase includes a physical gift card, please send an email to the scrip coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Orders for physical gift cards are processed on the first Sunday of the month and typically take one week for delivery. Once they have arrived, you will be notified by the scrip coordinator to arrange a pick up time.
Reloading amounts on to previously purchased physical gift cards can take up to 24 hours.
HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH I HAVE EARNED TOWARDS MY STUDENT’S FEES?
The scrip coordinator will send out updates twice a year. Rebates earned may be applied towards the expense of fall or winter WHEU registration, extra uniforms, gear and WHEU wear, and the end-of-year banquet! Balances may be carried over to the following year or transferred to another student.
HOW DO I APPLY MY BALANCE TO PAY FOR MY WHEUPA CONTRIBUTIONS?
Just send a note to the scrip coordinator at email@example.com requesting that your balance be applied towards an upcoming expense. You will receive a coupon code that can be applied towards your contribution. Items that scrip can be applied to include: Fall and winter registration, extra uniforms, gear and WHEU wear, and the end-of-year banquet!
DOES WHEUPA EARN ANYTHING WITH EACH PURCHASE?
This program is here to benefit YOU!! In order to cover administrative and delivery fees associated with ShopWithScrip, we do deduct 10% of each rebate for all purchases.
CAN EXTENDED FAMILY OR ALUMNI PARTICIPATE?
Absolutely! They can follow the same process that is outlined above. Just make sure they send the scrip coordinator an email with the student’s name who should be credited.
