How Do I Benefit From Buying Gift Cards from Scrip?

When you purchase a gift card or an e-gift card (ScripNow!) or reload a gift card on the Scrip website, www.shopwithscrip.com, your family tuition account will be credited for the rebates offered from each of the retailers from which you purchased.  For example, if you buy a $100 gift card with a 10% rebate, you will receive your $100 gift card that week and earn a credit of $10 that will go toward the upcoming school year tuition fee.
