Scrip is a program that allows your family to earn money just by making your regular household purchases. Instead of paying with cash or credit, you use prepaid gift cards from America’s favorite and most trusted retailers. When you purchase gift cards through Scrip, those retailers donate a percentage of your purchase. This is called a rebate. 75% of all your rebates get credited to your PFA pledge. 25% of your rebates remain with the PSO to help fund teacher and staff grants that benefit all OCSA students.
It is not unusual for a family, who uses Scrip regularly (see chart below), to earn over $700 each year in rebates towards their PFA.
