RamBand Scrip


Scrip is a term that means “substitute money”. When you purchase RamBand Scrip, you’re purchasing negotiable gift certificates and prepaid cards that are used just like cash. You can use this scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, and other essentials. With every purchase, you earn revenue for the Band Boosters and for your Student Ledger.

 

Scrip Order Schedule

We generally place orders with Great Lakes Scrip on the first and third Tuesday of each months.  So be sure to get your order into "The Box" by the end of school on Tuesday or use ShopWithScrip.com and Presto-Pay before the close of business on Tuesday.  The scrip will be ready for pickup at Weber Vision Care on the following Saturday morning.  Weber Vision Care is located at 4392 Sturbridge Drive off of Linglestown Road. If there's a problem or a backorder on your scrip order, we will attempt to contact you via e-mail. Scip order pickup dates are subject to change due to holiday shipping schedules.

PAY

You must sign up to use Presto-Pay™, a convenient way for your family to pay for RamBand Scrip on-line.  Presto-Pay uses ACH, which is the same process used for direct deposit of your paycheck.  Printable directions for Presto Pay enrollment are available for download,


Our RamScrip supplier, GLSC, accepts the payment on behalf of the Band Boosters and immediately debits your checking account for the face value amount of your RamBand Scrip order, plus a small ($0.15) convenience fee. Note that this means that GLSC will debit you immediately even though the RamBand Scrip Coordinator places our group’s order (usually, but with some exceptions) on the first and third Tuesday of the month.

To use PrestoPay, simply register your account information once in a secure environment, and then verify it again a few days later.  Though you can place your RamBand Scrip order, until your account is completely verified, you will not be able to use Presto-Pay for your order.  From then on you can elect to pay with PrestoPay at the time you order, and pay a modest convenience fee of $.15 each time.

An ever increasing number of merchants allow you to reload gift cards, which means that by using Presto-Pay, you can instantly reload your RamBand Scrip. You must have purchased the original gift card through the RamBand Scrip program for this to work.  A current list of vendor with the reload option is located at ShopWithScrip.com.

 
 

Miscellaneous Info

Backorders:  GL Scrip claims that 99.3% of its line items have shipped complete without backorder.  While that sounds great, it also means that occasionally, GL Scrip may temporarily run out of a particular merchant's scrip. When that happens, they will place the item on backorder and ship it with our next order.

Terms, conditions, fees:  In some instances, stores can impose a variety of terms and conditions on their cards, including, but not limited to, inactivity fees.  So be sure to carefully check out the Great Lakes Scrip  website or the retailer's website for the terms and conditions that apply to the gift card(s) you're considering.

Special Offers: From time to time, GL Scrip and participating vendors offer bonus discounts on scrip.  These bonus offers provide even more benefits to using RamBand Scrip; however, they end fast!  To see the current list of bonus offers, click here.

If your check is returned because of non-sufficient funds (“NSF”), you will be charged a $20 fee payable to Central Dauphin Band Boosters. After two NSF checks are tendered on your account, your scrip ordering privileges will be limited to money order only. Central Dauphin Band Boosters reserves the right to limit the quantity and amount of scrip certificates that may be purchased by one family and to impose any other limitations or restrictions.
