How to Sign-up Online
Create a SCRIP Online Account
You can setup an online account and order all of your SCRIP cards online and the points will go towards your Fair Share obligations. Follow the these instructions:
Step 1: Go to http://www.shopwithscrip.com. . ShopwithScrip is the online ordering system that Great Lakes Scrip Center (GLSC) uses to process its online orders. GLSC is the company where we purchase most of our gift cards.
Step 2: Click on "Join a Program" to Enroll
Step 3: You will be asked to insert an enrollment code for Guardian Angels Parish. Here it is: 38L923BD39752. Enter your information.
At this point, you’ve created an account and you are ready to order online. However, if you wish to use the PRESTOPAY function and have your order amount debited from your bank account, then you must continue to Step 4. If you wish to order online and just pay by cash or check (which needs to be sent into the SCRIP office) then you are done setting up.
Step 4: Now that you have an online account, click the "PRESTOPAY" button on the left side of the home page of your account. Creating a PRESTOPAY account is a three step process:
First: you enter your banking information. Once that is complete, Prestopay will give you a message that says they will make two small deposits into your designated bank account. (For example, one for 20 cents and one for 8 cents).
Second: Check your bank account online and when you see these deposits going into your account, log back into your SHOPWITHSCRIP account and click on PRESTOPAY again. They will ask you to verify the amounts deposited. Once you do, they will approve you for online payment by giving you an "APPROVAL CODE"
Third: Email the Scrip Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org with your approval code. Please make sure you give your full name as you did for your online account. The coordinator will then log into the Coordinators Account and enter your approval code which tells PRESTOPAY that the coordinator is authorizing them to allow you to shop online. The coordinator will email you back and let you know that you are ready to go shopping!! NOTE: THIS IS A ONE-TIME PROCESS. Once you have your PRESOPAY account, you are all set!
Some other notes to mention:
- The parish office only have access to your ShopwithScrip information NOT your banking information.
- If you have a family member or friend create an account, please email the parish office with that person’s name and address so that when they do create the account, the office will know who they are. Also, please make sure they put your Religious Education relative’s name in their ShopwithScrip account information so that your family will receive the rebate credit.
- When ordering Stop & Shop online, you will notice that there are two different types of Stop & Shop categories. First there is the standard Stop & Shop in the various denominations. The second one is called: Stop & Shop Local. Please use the Stop & Shop Local designation. The reason for this is that GLSC contracts with Stop & Shop and sells S&S cards (like all the other retailers they offer) and S&S offers a 4% rebate through GLSC. However, ordering Guardian Angels Parish Stop & Shop cards LOCALLY, we get a 5% rebate.
- As you have questions, clarifications or comments, always feel free to get in touch with either the Parish Secretary or the Bookkeeper.
