What is Scrip?
Scrip is a “no cost” way to support the Marching Eagles~~Scrip is essentially gift certificates from national retailers purchased at face value from the Bellbrook Music Boosters. Scrip is identical to gift certificates you purchase directly from stores and is used in the same manner. Scrip is available for everyday expenses like groceries (Dot's), restaurants (Appleby's, BW3, Wendy's), gasoline (Shell, Speedway), books (Barnes and Noble, Borders), clothing (Kohl's, JCPenney, Lazarus), hardware (Lowe's, Home Depot) and other essentials. Scrip also makes great gifts!Why buy Scrip?
The Bellbrook Music Boosters can purchase the certificates at discounted prices. The difference between the face value and the discounted purchase price becomes profit for the Bellbrook Music Boosters. These profits provide funding for the Bellbrook Music Programs. Profits vary from 2% to 25% depending upon the retailer.
Example: If you purchased $100 in Dot’s grocery gift certificates, the Boosters would pay only $95 for the certificates. The actual value of the certificate is still $100 when redeemed in the store.
