Attention Newark Ice Hockey Association families!
There's a new way to help offset your 2018-2019 hockey player fees! This program is very new to us, so we are going to start off small and see how it goes.
This is a program developed strictly for non-profit organizations to raise funds. Shop with Scrip allows families to buy gift cards online at face value and they will be credited a rebate from anywhere between 2.5% - 20%. Most rebates are between 4% & 13%. The rebates are ACH credited to NIHA's bank account and then will be applied directly to individual families hockey fees throughout the season. Gift cards can be purchased as instant downloads, physical gift cards, and reloadable gift cards. As we begin using this program, we will only be utilizing the instantly downloadable "ScripNow" gift cards. These are the gift cards you can use immediately just by pulling them up on your phone.
The Williams family is planning a night out. They go to Brio Tuscan Grille for dinner and purchase a $100 instant use gift card from the MyScripWallet mobile site. Then they go to AMC to watch a movie and purchase another $100 instant use gift card. That night, NIHA will get an itemized deposit for $12 (12% rebate) from the Brio gift card and $10 (10% rebate) from the AMC gift card. The Williams family will get a $22 credit toward their annual hockey fees.
The Bowman family just booked a cruise. The remaining balance to be paid to Carnival is around $4000 and they expect to spend at least $1000 on excursions or on the ship. Carnival gives an 8% rebate through Shop with Scrip. If they buy $5000 in Carnival gift cards, their player's fees will be credited $400.
As we start using this fundraiser, we are requiring all families to utilize Presto Pay so we don't need to facilitate money in & out. We will simply accept automatic credits into our account and then credit the player's accounts. This may change in the future, but want to roll this out simply at first.
Ongoing Player Account Balances:
Families can utilize this program year round. If a player's balance is paid in full, the incoming rebate amount will be credited toward the future year's fees. If the player does not return the next year, the balance will be treated as a donation to NIHA after the registration period has ended.
