What Is Scrip??

Scrip is a term that means “substitute money.” When you purchase Scrip, you are purchasing gift cards that can be used just like cash. You can use Scrip to make everyday purchases like groceries, clothing,  gas, dining out, movie tickets and much more.

Dallas Ballet Company buys the Scrip from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a discount. You purchase the certificates for full face value. The difference (from 2%-15%+) is the amount of profit you are able to donate to Dallas Ballet Company, or to your Company dancer’s account!

Each card you purchase is worth the amount you pay for it. The profit comes directly from the merchants. DBCo will track your Scrip donations and provide you with a charitable contribution form for your taxes. Parents, DBCo will email you a monthly statement showing rebates applied to your Company dancer’s account. A small sample of Scrip merchants and potential discounts include:  Bon-Ton 10%, Boston Market 14%, Dell Computer 6%, Red Robin 12%, Staples 10%, Burlington Coat Factory 9%, CVS 7%, Dell 6%, Express 12%, Kohl’s 5%, Meijer 4%, Petco ScripNow 6%, and Walgreens 8%.
