Major retailers want to give our music program FREE MONEY! | Click Scrip User Guide for instructions on how to get started.
The Music Booster Club (an umbrella booster organization representing band, orchestra, choir, and guitar boosters) sponsors a monthly Great Lakes gift certificate fundraiser. You have over 500 retailers to choose from in apparel, dining, discount stores, department stores, electronics, office supplies, entertainment, gasoline, grocery, home improvement, online shopping, specialty, sporting goods, and travel. You can purchase the certificates for gifts or for personal use and receive FREE MONEY for band fundraising accounts. You can also take orders from friends/family/neighbors which can be applied to your account. Profit varies by retailer (e.g., 4% Giant, 3% for Sheetz, 9% for Barnes & Noble).
Orders must be placed online by the first Sunday of each month. You pay for your gift cards either online (debit from your checking account) or write a check and take it to your nearest area coordinator (area coordinators are listed on the web site - coming soon). Area coordinators then deliver your gift cards to you the following week. The profit is not large, but on the other hand, it's "free" money for not much effort that can add up to a significant amount over a year. For example, last month I purchased:
- Giant Food, $300 gift cards and $12 profit
- Sheetz, $100 gift card and $3 profit
- Red Robin, $50 gift card and $4.50 profit
- Panera Bread, $50 gift card and $4.50 profit
- Chipotle, $20 gift card and $2 profit
