What Is Scrip?
Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase Scrip, you’re purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash. You can use scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials, and with every purchase, you earn revenue in your personal Scrip account.
How Scrip generates revenue for you
The Great Lakes Scrip Center (GL Scrip) acts on behalf of RCS and other non?profit organizations to purchase large amounts of scrip from grocery stores, department stores, and other retailers. Because the scrip is purchased with cash up front, the participating retailers offer a substantial discount. RCS buys the scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a discount, and re-sells the certificates to families like yours for full face value. The discount ? from two to fifteen percent or more – is revenue to your personal Scrip account.
