• What exactly IS SCRIP?
    SCRIP is just another name for gift cards. You can use them to purchase groceries, clothing, gifts, etc.

    SCRIP doesn't cost you anything extra. But by purchasing a SCRIP gift card, you are helping Creston earn money; the store whose card you buy gives a small percentage back to the school.

    How do I buy a SCRIP card?

    1. Buy the most popular type of card at school Friday mornings.
      The PTA has pre-puchased a stock of some of the most popular cards: Safeway, QFC, Fred Meyer and Burgerville. You can pay with cash or a check at the school Friday mornings at the start of school. The gift card you buy can be used right away.
    2. Buy cards ahead of time from a long list of stores. GREAT for ordering cards as gifts!!!
      Pick up a SCRIP order form in the office or download one here. This option works well for planning ahead for birthdays and holidays and times in your household when you do a lot of shopping (like back-to-school). There is a long list of:
      • Grocery stores
      • Department stores–GAP, Penneys, Kohl's, Payless Shoes, etc.
      • Automotive services–oil changes and car washes
      • Restaurants
      • Theaters
      • Specialty stores–books, hardware, candy, coffee, fabric, iTunes, donuts, ice cream...
    3. Complete the form for the items you want, write a check and drop the form and the check off in the office in the PTA box. Below is the schedule for pre-ordering:
      • Thursday, Nov. 7–distributed Friday Nov. 15
