Shop with Scrip
What is Scrip?
Scrip is a program whereby you can purchase certificates and cards to be used at the local places where you shop. You can use these as gifts or for your normal purchases. The retailers rebate a portion of the purchase (from 2% to 15%) to our church.
Groceries, clothing, toys, gifts, can be purchased with your Scrip cards. Scrip cards are a great way to support the ongoing needs of Holy Covenant without having to buy anything that you don't need.
How can I get Scrip cards?
There are a couple of ways to purchase these cards from HCUMC. One is to stop by the Scrip Table after 8:30am service and before and after 11am service and fill out an order form for whichever retailer that you want and pay with check or cash. (Most cards are in amounts of $25 or $50.) Your card will be available at the Scrip table the next Sunday.
The second option is online ordering through www.ShopwithScrip.com. By setting up an account, you can place your order from your computer and turn in the check at the Scrip table. You can also choose to pay for your order online using PrestoPay to electronically debit your checking account.
PrestoPay is not a credit card based system - it uses the safe, reliable NACHA electronic fund transfer system. You enter your information one time in a secure environment. After the account is verified, you can choose to have your Scrip payments electronically deducted from your checking account when you order.
How do I receive my order?
Both online and paper orders are consolidated by the HCUMC Scrip Team on Monday and sent to the Scrip company. Cards are available for pick-up at the Scrip Table the next Sunday. You may also receive your purchase via email and print out your certificate to use in the store or when ordering something online. These are available the same day once your order has been placed. If using Presto Pay, you can receive your certificate within minutes. You can go "green" and reload cards online and have the funds the next day and not have to wait for a new card.

This is a wonderful way to purchase gift cards for Christmas or cards for your everyday purchases. This program is designed to benefit the church through the retailer rebates and does not cost you anything. These cards can be used for what you are already spending or for gift cards that you would be buying.
Several in the congregation have been using these cards and testing out the program. Please feel free to talk to them. (Linda and Dave Hill, Sheli Erenberger, Julie Fuller, Carol Jones & Susan Blassingame)
