What’s available to you for purchase? How does it work?
The retailers sell Gift Cards to OLP at a discounted rate, we in-turn sell them to the Families for the Face Value. The discount from the retailer is where the credits come from. The school does retain a portion of the credit maintain the program and pay for shipping expenses. The Family/School split is 80/20, you collect 80% and the school retains 20%. Keep in mind, there is not processing fee for orders to the Shop with Scrip site, the Smart Money Program absorbs the FedEx charges.
