As we've often repeated, consistency is key in order to run a successful FundScrip gift card fundraising campaign.

To achieve your group’s goals, we suggest ordering regularly and using gift cards for daily expenses.

Here are 3 ways to help you use gift cards and raise more for your group every week.

Identify Recurring Expenses

How best to maximize your gift card usage? The best way to do so is paying with gift cards as frequently as possible and for as many expenses as possible.

Identify all recurring expenses, including:

  • Groceries
  • Transportation
  • Entertainment
  • Home Improvement
  • Etc.

Make a list of the expenses that come up most often on your bank statement. Pay attention to the ones that come back every week or every month and identify which gift card is best suited to make these purchases.

At FundScrip, we carry an extensive and growing selection of retailers (nearly 300) from a wide variety of categories. Finding the right one for you shouldn't be a problem!

Try Our Recurring Order Feature

Once common expenses have been identified, try creating a recurring order for gift cards you use the most.

It's a simple and effective way to always have the right gift card on hand and avoid the temptation of pulling out your debit or credit card. Note that you can cancel a recurring order at any time if your needs change over time.
