1. Please go online to Escrip.com and make sure your credit cards and your grocery cards are up to date. Perhaps a card was replaced during the year by your bank or you signed up for a new card; these new card numbers can be registered to participate. If you are a Ralph’s shopper, you can participate in Ralph’s Community Contribution Program by registering at www.ralphs.com. This is not Escrip but it works in a similar way.
2. If you are an online shopper, consider downloading the “Forget Me Not” icon on the top of the Escrip’s Online Mall homepage. This little button will automatically pop up and remind you to click to earn for St. Edmund’s whenever you are on a website recognized by Escrip.
You no longer have to go through the Online Mall shopping page in order to have your purchase credit St. Edmund’s. It is a very handy and an easy way to take advantage of Escrip when online shopping.
3. While on Escrip.com, be sure to check out the restaurants and grocery stores that participate in the Escrip program, familiar names like Bristol Farms, Foods 4 Less, New Moon, Celestino, Buca di Beppo, El Portal, Green Street Tavern, Bar Celona, Yahaira’s, Rounds Burgers and Young Dong Korean….and many, many more.
4. And last but not least, don’t forget to bring your used printer ink cartridges, toner cartridges, and used cell phone, iPad, iPhone batteries to the close on Sundays for recycling. Escrip pays St. Edmund’s for our recycling: this last year we earned $65 and we hope to increase that amount going forward!
Again, thank you for your participation. We hope you will continue to use Escrip and perhaps even increase your use of it with the above suggestions. If you have any problems or questions about Escrip, please let one of us know.
