Turn your everyday purchases (like gas and groceries) into cash for St. John Lutheran Church and School. Simply use retail gift cards (bought from the church office) to pay instead of the usual credit/debit card.
How it works
- The church buys the gift cards at 1-13% less than face value (varies by retailer).
- You buy gift cards from the church office and use the gift cards to pay for what you would buy anyway.
- The difference between face value and what our church pays = funds raised.
Here's an example:
Mrs. Jones needs some gardening supplies, so she buys a $100 The Home Depot® gift card for $100 through her son's school scrip fundraiser. Cha-ching! She just earned $4 for us because The Home Depot gift cards are available from Great Lakes Scrip Center at 4% less than face value. When Mrs. Smith checks out at The Home Depot, she pays with her gift card instead of using a credit or debit card! She will do the same thing when she needs cleaning supplies at Target®, and earn $2.50 just by using a $100 Target gift card to pay for her purchases.
Calculate the possibilities
Earnings add up fast! It's easy for a single family to generate $600 to $1000 or more per year. If we all work together, we could earn significant funding for our church and school. Stop into the church office to purchase your gift cards today!
