Smart Money is a gift card program designed to lower tuition costs through everyday purchases.
We sell gift cards to over 700 retailers including gas, groceries, entertainment, department stores, restaurants, and more. The retailers offer us a discount or “credit” ranging from 1%-20%. We apply the credits you earn each month to your tuition bill.
Here’s an example. Say you purchase a $100 Giant gift card from the Smart Money Program. It’s an even Swap…you pay $100, and we give you a $100 gift card to pay for your groceries. Giant returns 4% of the sales to us ($4.00). We apply that $4.00 (less a 15% administrative fee) to your tuition bill. It’s free money.
First, email the Smart Money Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org for the LC Enrollment Code. Once you receive the enrollment Code, you can open a shopwithscrip.com account. Refer below to Step 1 – Getting Started for directions on opening a shopwithscrip.com account. You can place an order, track your credits, and much more from your shopwithscrip.com account.
Simply set up your personal PrestoPay account. Refer below to Step 2 – PrestoPay for directions. It takes a few minutes to sign up followed by 1-2 days for verification. once you are emailed an approval code, forward it to email@example.com, and we’ll activate your account.
If you choose not to use PrestoPay, simply send your cash or check (made payable to LC Smart Money) to the LC Main Office by 9:00 AM EST on designated order days.
We will send your order home with the student you designate. Orders for students in grades Pre-K thru 5 are delivered to their homerooms. Students in middle and high school are paged to the office at the end of the day to pick up orders. A signature is required from middle and high school students.
If you prefer to pick up your order in the LC main office, just let us know. We’re happy to accommodate you.
Your gift cards will arrive in a zippered pouch (similar to a pencil case) labeled for your family. Remove the gift cards and any paperwork, then send the pouch back to us the next time you order, or at your convenience. We exchange the pouch back and forth throughout the year.
Generally, we order on a Monday, every two weeks, year-round. Orders must be placed online by 9:00 AM EST. Payment is also required on Monday. Please refer to the 2017-2018 Order Schedule for a complete list of dates, as exceptions apply.
