St.  Paul School Fastscrip 2017-2018
 
Earn tuition credits by participating in the St. Paul School Fastscrip Program


Purchase gift cards at a discount from both local & national retailers on www.shopwithscrip.com.
Families pay full price for the gift card then receive the rebate back as a credit on the following school year’s tuition.


How does Fastscrip work?  
Here’s an example: Giant Eagle offers a 3.74% rebate. So on a $100 gift card, the rebate is $3.74. Then that $3.74 is divided 90%/10%...$3.37 (90%) goes to the earning St. Paul family as a credit on the following year’s tuition bill and $0.37 (10%) goes to the St. Paul General Tuition Assistance Fund. Note this 10% is tax-deductible by the earning family, as it is a contribution to a non-profit organization.  The 10% caps at $25/per family/ per contributing year.

  • Where Do You Grocery Shop?
If you shop at Meijer, Kroger, Giant Eagle, Walmart/Sam’s Club, GFS, Whole Foods – order gift cards from www.shopwithscrip.com for the best rebates from these vendors. (Costco currently doesn’t participate.)

  • Is your youngest child in 8th grade?
You may continue to participate in the Fastscrip program throughout their 8th grade year. Your tuition credit will be forwarded to the Diocesan high school he/she will attend as a freshman.

  • Current Earnings Period: 5/20/17 – 5/19/18, Credits will reflect on Tuition Invoice generated during Summer 2018.

  • Participating families can notify the Fastscrip team via email for a cash payout of tuition credits, otherwise rebates will rollover as a credit to following year’s tuition bill or credited towards the Tuition Assistance Fund if the family will no longer attend St. Paul School. Notifications will only be accepted between 5/1/18-5/19/18.
