Giant Eagle Gift Card Program
The USCHS Boys Lacrosse Boosters will once again be selling Giant Eagle Gift Cards as a fundraiser this year. For those of you who have never taken advantage of this easy opportunity, here is how it works. For every $100 of cards you purchase, you earn $4, or 4% profit. Now, that may not sound like a lot, but for those people who do all or most of their shopping at Giant Eagle and buy all their gas at Get-Go, that money adds up quickly. Using the cards is just like using cash with a little preplanning.
There is no rebate earned on the first $500 of cards purchased. After that, for every $100 you spend on Giant Eagle Cards, you will get back $4, or 4% of your purchase. Rebates earned during the year will accumulate and will be disbursed on February 1, 2019, and towards the end of May 2019. You could potentially earn back your booster dues; pay as you play fee; and/or varsity trip dues. Every year we have families who meet this threshold.
The following is a list of some of the ways you can use the cards to earn your money back between now and May 2019.
You can use the Giant Eagle gift cards for:
-General grocery shopping…and still receive your fuel perks
-Gasoline at Get-Go…and still receive your GE fuel discounts
-Other gift cards you purchase at Giant Eagle. If you are planning to buy big ticket items at Lowes, Home Depot, Best Buy, etc. use the GE gift cards to buy those store gift cards to pay for your purchases so you can earn your 4%.
-If you eat frequently at certain restaurants, use the GE gift cards to buy restaurant gift cards to pay for your lunch/dinners so you can earn your 4%.
- Gifts for your employees/family/friends...they can then use them on any gift cards of their choosing sold at Giant Eagle.
- A personal fundraiser by asking other people to purchase them from you. Around the holidays is an especially good time to ask people because many of them are spending more than usual on food and gifts.
For the initial kick-off of gift card sales, please contact me by August 25 via text/email/phone to let me know how much you would like to purchase. Payment isn’t necessary until you pick up the cards from me. Following the initial sale getting additional cards is as easy as getting in contact with me and arranging for pickup. I cannot stress how easy and worthwhile this is if you shop at Giant Eagle/Get-Go.
