"10% Back to Schools" continues through September 5

Original post made by Edith, Palo Verde, on Aug 29, 2006

There is one week remaining in the Safeway/eScrip "10% Back to Schools" promotion. Now, through September 5, when you purchase participating grocery products, Safeway will donate 10% of purchase price to the school of your choice.

Just look for the "10% Back to Schools" label, buy participating products and use your Safeway Club Card at checkout.

If you are enrolled in eScrip, your 10% contribution will be donated to your school automatically.

If you are not enrolled in eScrip, a "Reward Certificate" (showing your total contribution and a redemption code) will print on the back of your receipt the first time you shop after September 10. If you don't receive it, ask your cashier to print it for you anytime between September 10 and October 7. Give this "Reward Certificate" to your school by October 13.

eScrip is an electronic fundraising program that enables participating merchants to contribute to the school or organization of your choice. You register your existing grocery club cards, credit cards and debit cards and use them whenever you shop. Once you've enrolled, a percentage of every purchase you make using your registered cards at participating merchants is donated to your group. There is no cost to participate.

For more information about eScrip, including a list of participating merchants go to www.escrip.com. To sign up, look for the heading "Make a Difference in Four Easy Steps" and click on the words "Sign Up - It's Free!". Key in your zip code for a list of eScrip participating schools in your neighborhood, then follow the remaining registration instructions.
