Instead of using cash or credit to make ordinary purchases, you can purchase gift cards through Temple Avodat Shalom at regular price, and the temple receives a percentage of the face value of each gift card as revenue.
The retailers offer a discount as a percentage of the face value of each gift card. This discount is passed along to the TAS, and when the certificate is sold by TAS to you for full face value, this discount becomes revenue for our temple.
You can pick up many of the cards at the temple on Sunday mornings during religious school, and now you can even order the cards online!
All you need to do is go to www.shopwithscrip.com and click on 'register'. You will need to 'join an existing Scrip program' and enter the enrollment code - B814B5A718L52
Follow the necessary steps to set up your own account.
You will be able to set up a Presto Pay account which will debit your bank account each time you place an order. You can sign up for Presto Pay under 'family functions' on the 'dashboard' once you are logged into your accounts.
Each family has the option of ordering Scrip Now e-cards or physical cards. All physical card orders are shipped to TAS to the coordinator's attention for the coordinator to distribute to the families. Scrip Now e-cards are delivered directly to the family's 'wallet' which is under 'view scrip now' under 'family functions'.
Frequently asked questions:
Q: How do I pay for ScripNow!?
A: For optimal speed, PrestoPay is recommended. When you pay with PrestoPay, you'll receive your eCard in 30 minutes or less. However, you can pay your coordinator by check. This will delay the process since the ScripNow! code will only be delivered after your coordinator indicates she has received your check.
Q: If I don't pay with PrestoPay, how soon can I have the eCards?
A: Your ScripNow! eCard will be available for download within minutes after your coordinator releases your order for processing.
Q: How long do I have to wait after ordering, before I can use my ScripNow!?
A: PrestoPay ScripNow! orders are fulfilled within minutes. You will be sent a confirmation email (sent to the email account on record). ScripNow! orders paid by personal check are also fulfilled minutes after your coordinator notifies us that your check has been received.
Q: Do I have to print up and bring in the paper certificate to the store, or can I just write down the code?
A: This varies by retailer, we recommend that to avoid confusion, you should bring in the printout to the store.
Q: What if there is a malfunction with my printer; is there a limit to the number of times I can print my certificate?
A: No, there is no limit. You have paid for the code. It doesn't matter how many times you print it, but you can only redeem the code for up to that amount (just like a regular gift card). Each time you print it will have the same code. The paper should be treated as cash.
Q: What if I don't use the full amount of the ScripNow! eCard on my purchase?
A: It works the same way that the plastic cards do. The remaining balance is still on there to use for a future purchase.
Q: How will I know when my ScripNow! is available?
A: You will get an email letting you know that it is available and instructions on how to retrieve and print it up. You can also click on the ScripNow! link on the left side of your "My Account" page to see a list of previously printed and ready to print eCards.
