What is BC Bucks?
BC Bucks is the Scrip (gift card) program that earns revenue for Butler Catholic School by receiving a percentage back from every purchase. These percentages range from 1.5% to 18%. Butler Catholic School splits the rebates you have earned by 50%. Families earn 50% of all rebates as a credit toward their tuition account. The rebates are credited quarterly. If your tuition account has a credit balance at the end of the school year, that balance is rolled over as a credit toward your next year’s tuition bill.
There are two types of gift cards that are available for purchase – Immediate Fill and Mail Order. Immediate Fill refers to gift cards that are available in the school office. These type of cards are typically local retailers, such as Giant Eagle, Butler Farm Market, McDonalds, Springfield Grill, Eat-N-Park, just to name a few. Mail Order gift cards are ordered through Great Lakes Scrip Company, which offers just about anything imaginable. Some examples of Mail Order gift cards are Lowe’s, Home Depot, Target, Boscov’s, Kohl’s, BP, Sunoco…the possibilities are endless.

In addition, we also offer a Standing Order program, which will allow cards to be automatically ordered and filled for you on a recurring basis that you determine.
Payment is required at the time the order is placed. Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted. Online orders can also be paid by using Presto-Pay, which is a secure payment option.

When do I order?
Immediate Fill orders are filled in the school office Monday through Friday from 9 – 11 AM. Mail Orders are due online or in the office by Monday at 11 AM. You may send in your orders and payment through your child’s backpack in an envelope marked ‘BC Bucks’ for your convenience. Occasionally there are weeks where no mail orders will be placed due to holiday scheduling or Great Lakes Scrip Company closures. Notifications will be sent out in advance of any scheduling changes.
When will I receive my order?
There are a couple of ways to receive your scrip cards. You may have your orders sent home with your child via their backpack. Or, you can pick up your orders in the office at your convenience anytime during regular office hours. Immediate Fill orders will be available the same day you order. Mail Order received by the Monday 11 AM deadline will be available by Friday of that same week. The schedule might vary during holiday weeks, so if you have any questions about a particular week, please check with the office.
