Shop With Scrip

Welcome to Shop With Scrip

The basic gist is: you order gift cards from the PTO for stores and places where you regularly spend money, and then the PTO immediately receives a rebate.  These rebates are often quite substantial, ranging from 3% to 12%. Think about what you regularly spend money on: groceries, gas, restaurants, online shopping, movies, birthday presents, etc.  There are even hotels and vacation possibilities!  Here is the list of over 700 retailers that participate.  


How To Sign Up:

Click on Let's Get Started.  You will see instructions on how to sign up for the Scrip Program.  You will need an enrollment code that can be picked up in the front office or you can contact Ortega's Scrips Coordinator, by texting Mara Higdon for the code.   Follow the instructions on the sheet and then make a list of items that you regularly shop for, enter the cards on your Scrips dashboard and order.  If you need additional assistance, check out the Family Enrollment Packet and/or the Family User Guide.


Everyday Shopping Examples Using Scrip


There are two options for payment.

1. Pay by check to Ortega PTO and remember to put "Scrips" in the memo section.  Turn in checks to the school office.  All orders will go in on Monday mornings or Tuesdays if Monday is a holiday. An order can only be submitted if payment has been received.


2. Pay online through PrestoPay - PrestoPay lets you pay for your Scrip orders online—no more dropping off checks! PrestoPay securely links a bank account to your ShopWithScrip account so you can choose electronic debit when you checkout online. The rebate is automatically credited to Ortega, and you don’t have to worry about cash or checks. This option costs .15 per order regardless of how many cards you order. For example if you order 10 cards to Target, you only pay .15 total.


Receiving Your Gift Cards

Once the cards are ordered, they take 3-5 days to be delivered in the mail. Then the coordinator will distribute the cards in person, or via the office.

Cards can also be given to your child in a sealed envelope.  If this option is easiest for you, please complete this waiver and submit it to the office.
