The quickest and easiest way to fundraise for our parish is by buying gift cards from the parish to use at stores you already are shopping at!
Gift cards can be purchased at the parish or can be purchased online.
Purchasing Gift Cards at the Parish
Gift Cards can be purchased at the front desk of the Parish Center Monday through Thursday from 8:00am to 9:00pm and on Friday's from 8:00am to 4:00pm. Order forms are available at the parish office or click here to print the Standard Gift Card Order Form so you can complete it at home before you arrive. If a store you normally shop at is not on our standard order form, click here to order a gift card from our Special Gift Card Order Form.
Parish school families may also complete the Gift Card Order Form and send it in via your child's backpack with payment (no cash please in backpacks). We can usually turn the order around the same day or the following.
Shop with ScripPurchasing Gift Cards Online to Benefit the Parish - ShopWithScrip and MyScripWallet
Our gift card provider, Great Lakes Scrip, now allows you to purchase gift cards online through their ShopWithScrip Program (note that gift cards are not available through Clover Corner).
At ShopWithScrip.com, gift card retailers allow you to download and/or print your purchased gift cards or have your cards sent directly to your smart phone via MyScripWallet - all while receiving credit in the Saint Kilian Parish gift card program. To participate in this program, all you need to do is register on ShopWithScrip.com to have your purchases count toward your SKPS Family Fundraising Requirement. Please note that you will need an enrollment code to do this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your personal code.
You can also choose to apply for their PrestoPay program, a direct debit program that allows you to purchase gift cards via direct debit from your bank account with no additional fees deducted. Participation in the PrestoPay program is subject to approval by Great Lakes Scrip and Saint Kilian Parish. Once approved, your gift cards will be delivered to MyScripWallet, right on your smart device. Without PrestoPay approval, you will simply need to deliver a check for your purchases to Saint Kilian for ScripNow! cards to be released to MyScripWallet or to ShopWithScrip for printing.
Please visit ShopWithScrip.com for full details and click on the ScripNow! link to see which providers participate in ScripNow! and MyScripWallet. Many providers, for which you would previously have had to place a special order, participate in the ScripNow! online gift card purchasing program. For those providers that still only have plastic cards that are not among our regular stock of cards, please be aware that your order will not be available for immediate release and is subject to up to a week's wait. Please also note that Giant Eagle cards purchased online through ScripNow! have a lower rebate percentage (4%) than those physically purchased at Saint Kilian Parish (5%).
Lands' End offers a great return of 16% so be sure to purchase the gift cards for uniform purchases. Gift cards are accepted online only at landsend.com. McDonald's Care Certificates are worth $1 and the profit for the Care Certificates is 50%! However, please note that (1) certificates are only redeemable at McDonald locations listed on the certificate, (2) change will not be given on the certificate, and (3) sales tax must be paid in cash. Giant Eagle gift cards purchased from the parish can be used to buy other gift cards from Giant Eagle - earn credit for school fundraising and earn FuelPerks from Giant Eagle! Use Kohl’s gift cards purchased from the parish to pay the balance on your Kohl’s credit card at the customer service desk in the store.
Please contact Lesley Stofko, Development Director, with any questions or concerns regarding gift cards or online gift card purchasing.
