If you would like to learn more about how filling your gas tank can save $1,500 in tuition, read on:
If a person spends an average of $250 on gas a month, bought gas at Marathon and purchased a scrip card through the LCS Scrip Program, they would save $10 a month on tuition, $120 a year, and $1,560 in the course of one child’s education.

Using the LCS Scrip program for gas, clothing, dinners out, gifts, and much more, an average family could multiply its tuition savings by hundreds... even thousands of dollars! 

If a tuition break isn’t what your family is looking for, you could choose to donate any percentage of tuition savings to LCS. Your family could get a little, AND give a little with the LCS Scrip program.


How Scrip Works

Great Lakes Scrip Center buys gift cards from retailers at a discount. Every other week, you may place an order from participating retailers for full market value. The Scrip Coordinator submits all of the LCS family orders and delivers them to the LCS office at the end of that week. Because of the initial discount given by the retailer, you, as a consumer, are given a rebate on your child’s LCS account. 

YOU PAY... $100 to LCS Scrip
YOU RECEIVE... A $100 Macy's (for example!) Gift Card - JUST like the gift cards you can purchase at Macy's
YOU EARN... a 10% rebate ($10) applied to your child's LCS account (or however you would like your rebate applied)
*Each participating retailer gives different rebate percentages. These percentages can be found at
