Welcome to the TJ Bands Scrip Program!
What is Scrip?
Scrip is a fundraising program designed for maximum convenience. Families buy prepaid cards, digital or traditional, to use at favorite stores, restaurants, travel partners and other participating vendors. Earn funds while going about your daily routine!
You receive full face value of the prepaid card, or Scrip. A percentage of your purchase goes to the TJ Band Boosters to support ALL of our amazing TJ Bands groups. With over 700 participating vendors, you are sure to find places you typically shop. You can even schedule delivery of e-gift cards!
How important is Scrip to TJ Bands?
VERY important! TJ Bands can earn thousands of dollars in Scrip rebates to help defray the cost of uniforms, instruments, competition fees, instruction, and trips. The key is for ALL of our families to participate. With over 700 participating vendors, you’ll find places you already shop. If you buy groceries, you can help!
Clicking on our Amazon Smile link earns our TJ Bands Program a 0.5% rebate. Purchasing a prepaid Amazon card through our Scrip program earns our program 2.5%! Consider using our link to Amazon Smile and paying with Scrip. All those rebates add up!

For ultimate convenience, you can use your smart phone to order Scrip. Log in to www.myscripwallet.com to learn more. During the school year, you may order physical cards as well. (See the Scrip flyer linked at the top of the page for the schedule for physical cards.)
How do I pay for my Scrip purchases?
Most families pay for Scrip electronically from their checking account with PrestoPay. To register for PrestoPay, go to the Dashboard page at www.shopwithscrip.com. Click on Family Functions on the left-hand sidebar and select Payment Types. Choose either Instantly Link a Bank Account or Manually Enter Account Numbers. Please note that manually entering the account information will require 1-2 business days for Great Lakes Scrip Center (GLSC) to process. When you pay for a Scrip order using PrestoPay, a small convenience fee of 15 cents will be added to your total order amount. If you do not wish to use PrestoPay, you may pay for Scrip orders by personal check.
To pay by check, place your order online and select Check as your method of payment. Make your check payable to TJ Band Boosters. Have your student bring the check to school by the delivery date and place it in the silver payments box outside the band room. Kindly note that we are unable to release the cards until payment is received. If you have any questions, please email Val Kreider at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many physical cards purchased through our Scrip program can be reloaded at www.shopwithscrip.com. We can keep those rebates coming for maximum benefit!
