Scrip News!

If you have previously submitted your username and email to our scrip office, then you’ve seen the emails from about Thank-Scrip-ing Day coming up. If you haven’t heard, then you need to email our scrip coordinator, Lisa Kyle ([email protected]), with a username and the email address you access most through your phone!
Thank-Scrip-ing-Day is Great Lakes’ biggest online-only promotion coming up soon on September 18, and they’re also offering a week of free PrestoPay from September 23 – 29.


How PrestoPay Works

Since 2008, ShopWithScrip families have been able to pay for their scrip orders with PrestoPay. Instead of writing and sending a check in for every order, when you sign up for PrestoPay, you link your bank account to your ShopWithScrip account just once and then create a PIN that is unique to you. You’ll get an approval code that you need to send to Lisa then you’ll receive an email that you’re all set with PrestoPay. Then you’re on your way!
When you’re out shopping or dining, or you’ve had an unexpected expense come up over the weekend, using PrestoPay through MyScripWallet is the easiest way to purchase scrip. MyScripWallet is not an app. It is a mobile website that can be used from a cell phone or mobile device. MyScripWallet is supported for the Safari browser on Apple devices, and Chrome on Android devices. 
To easily use the site for future purchases, navigate to on your mobile device. 

  • On an iPhone, select the upward arrow icon at the bottom of the screen. Choose ‘Add to Home Screen’, then ‘Add’. 
  • On Android phones, access the Chrome menu button and select ‘Add to home screen’, then ‘Add’. Click on the new icon to access the site just as you would to open an app.

 Now, click on the new icon to access the site just as you would to open an app. (This step applies to either Apple or Android).


Reasons to Use PrestoPay

As mentioned, convenience is key. You can estimate your cart expenses while you’re shopping at Target or Walmart, for example. Then, as you prepare to check out, order scrip on MyScripWallet for exactly what you need to pay! Anytime you’re making purchases outside of scrip office hours, you’re able to add to your tuition rebate. Thanks to PrestoPay, you can order ScripNow eCards and have your scrip in minutes. Having immediate access to virtual scrip products is habit-forming, so it’s no surprise that a family who uses PrestoPay and orders ScripNow and reloads their gift cards earns 45% more than families who don’t.

One thing to keep in mind is there is a $0.15 convenience fee on every PrestoPay order. But with how many rebates you’ll be earning by ordering virtual products, the $0.15 is practically negligible.


PrestoPay Safety

Many people are leery of paying for anything online, but the Automated Clearing House (ACH) process that PrestoPay uses is secure. ACH is used for billions of transactions every year, including payroll direct deposit and Social Security. Since 1974, almost 24 billion transactions have been processed through the ACH, so it’s well established and used by banks everywhere.

You might still worry about linking your bank account with your ShopWithScrip account, concerned that something will happen with your information. There’s no need to fret, though; all of your PrestoPay information is transmitted through secure data links. Everything is encrypted, so the information stored on ShopWithScrip servers is unreadable. Feel confident you’re using an online payment option that is easy, secure, and will ramp up your earnings!
