Scrip Cards for Sale at Abrams Elementary! Scrip cards are gift cards you can use to pay at checkout for groceries, gas, retail stores and restaurants without the risk of fraud. You can use the scrip cards to shop in-store or online with participating retailers. You purchase gift cards at face value and use them for your purchases. If you find yourself patronizing certain stores, please consider buying scrip. Every other week the CPTO sends home an order form for you to order your cards, or you can stop in the school office and purchase cards that we have on-hand.

These cards make great Christmas gifts, birthday presents, or a great budgeting tool. Also, Kohl’s scrip cards may be applied to Kohl’s charge bill at the service counter or any checkout. Any questions contact Crystal Berg at cberg1081@gmail.com .
