SETTING UP AN ACCOUNT
If you don’t already have an account, you will need to set one up. Click on the “Create account” in the green box on the left hand side of the page.
On the next page, select a user name and fill in the required information. Please note: Some of the entries on this page are optional. After filling out the fields, click on the “I Accept” box at the bottom of the screen. Please make sure you remember your user name and password.
The next screen will ask you to “Join a nonprofit.” You need to enter the St. Bernard enrollment number at this screen. The St. Bernard enrollment code is 55B38B8F4865 (upper or lower case letters work fine).
Click on “join” and you have now created an account. At this point, you can view and print more detailed directions than these by clicking on the “User Guide” link on the left hand side of the screen. If you wish to place an order right away, you can click on “Place Order” on this screen.
ADDING SCRIP TO YOUR ORDER
There are several ways to add Scrip to an order. These are available from the first screen you see after logging onto the web site. The default is browse by category. Use this if you know you want a certain type of Scrip and want to see what brands are available.
The fastest way to add Scrip to an order is the “Express Add” option. Use this option if you know the name of the Scrip you want. From this screen, you simply start typing the name of the vendor and a list will pop up with available choices. For example, if you type the letters “Fes” you will see a list of Festival Foods Scrip that is offered. Typically, by typing just a few letters, you can find the Scrip for which you are looking.
Once you find the Scrip you want, simply select it from the list. Type in the quantity you would like and click on the “Add to cart” button. After you select the Scrip from the list, it will show you the percentage earned. When you have completed your order, simply click the “checkout” button near the top right of the screen.
When you go to the checkout screen, you will notice there are three actions you can do to each item in your cart. These are “edit,” “add to favorites,” and “remove.” Add to favorites allows you to select this Scrip easily in the future from your own “favorites” list.
When you are finished making any adjustments to your cart, click on the “checkout” button.
When checking out, you will have two options. The options are “Pay with check” or “Presto Pay.” When using the pay with check option, you will need to print out your order, attach a check for the correct amount, and send it to school. It will be filled and sent home on Wednesdays the same way special orders are done.
Before using the Presto Pay option, you need to click on the link to sign up. Presto Pay is linked to your checking account. This will take a few days as Shop With Scrip will make small deposits into your account to verify it. Once you verify the deposits, your account is ready to go.
There are two important things to note when using Presto Pay: 1) There will be a 39-cent fee added to each order that is processed with Presto Pay and 2) If you only select “Local” Scrip, this option will not be available. Something from Great Lakes National Scrip needs to be ordered if using Presto Pay.
When paying with Presto Pay, you do not need to do anything else. The order will be electronically forwarded to the Scrip coordinators and be automatically filled and sent home on Wednesdays the same way special orders are done.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. When searching for Scrip, I often see names duplicated. Some say “Local” after and other do not. Which should I use?
A. When you see two entries (i.e. Kwik Trip and Kwik Trip Local Scrip),ALWAYS PICK THE LOCAL. The amount donated will be more thereby increasing the amount you earn towards tuition credits. We cannot change it if you do not pick Local.
Q. What are the advantages of using the Presto Pay option?
A. Some people will find Presto Pay more convenient. You do not need to print anything out or return anything to the Scrip coordinators. Your Scrip order will be electronically forwarded to the Scrip coordinators and filled. Please keep in mind, you will be charged 39 cents for using this service no matter what the size of the order and you must include some non-local Scrip in order to use it.
Q. What are the advantages of using the website and paying by check?
A. Since it is all electronic, there is less chance of error. You can print your own copy for your records. The web site keeps track of all your orders.
Q. Do I have to use the Shop With Scrip web site?
A. No. You can still purchase Scrip any of the normal ways, including before and after Masses, through the brown envelope, or before and after school.
