Have you considered joining the TRIP program? Earnings from TRIP can be considered to be “free,” as they result from regular purchases of gas, groceries, prescriptions, etc. which would have been made anyway! There is also no limit to the amount of funds each family might raise. Purchases made through TRIP can benefit your family too!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?

Read through the materials and fill out the registration form which may be turned in with your first order.  Registration forms are available on the school website or at the school office.  You may also enroll directly at www.shopwithscrip.com by creating an account in the “family sign up” field.  Freeman Academy’s enrollment code is F2L134A922L38.

How do I place an order?

Fill out an order form, (Order Form) indicating at which businesses and in what denominations you would like to have gift certificates/cards.  Add up your totals from both sides, enclose a check(s) made payable toFA TRIP and submit by 12:00 noon on the scheduled Friday to the designated box in the Business Office, the drop box inside the front door of the Administration Building, or the drop box in the entryway to the Etc Shoppe.  Orders and payments may also be made online at www.shopwithscrip.com.

When are the orders received?

Filled orders will be ready by the following Friday and can be picked up at the school office from 11:00-11:15 a.m. or from 11:30 a.m.–12:00 noon at the Etc Shoppe.  A parent MUST pick up the orders or authorize a proxy.

How do I receive credit?

Credits are indicated on the packing slip included with the filled order.  Accumulated credits are posted to tuition accounts twice a year, in May and December, unless you elect to hold them until a future posting.

Can I order for other people?

Definitely!  This is a great way to increase your credit amount.  Ask friends and relatives to consider shopping with gift cards through TRIP.  Simply enclose their check along with your order form.

Can our credits apply to another family’s account?

On the registration form, fill out the appropriate box as to where you want your credits applied.
