We are happy to introduce you to our new and improved GMWS SCRIP program, featuring a mobile app called Benefit. The SCRIP program works using gift cards that support the school (SCRIP stands forSchool Cash Rebate Incentive Program).
SCRIP is a way for all of us to support our school by helping raise funds just by doing our ordinary shopping.
What are the Benefits of Benefit?
You don't need to carry or keep track of physical gift cards.
You don't need to place orders for gift cards in advance (though you can if you like). Simply order your gift cards from your smartphone while you are actually in a store.
Order the exact amount of SCRIP for the amount of your purchase (currently limited to certain merchants; others have fixed card increments like $10, $25, $100)
Order SCRIP and redeem it right away, all from your phone. Currently, you can choose from about 80 vendors, with more vendors being added each month.
