Here are some additional bonus offers that are available as of March 9 - Arby's (+2%), Domino’s (+3%), Hilton Hotels (+5%), Jamba Juice (+2%, a newer addition to the SCRIP offerings), Red Robin (+2.75%), See's Candies (+2%), and TGIFridays (+1%). Most are available on orders placed by Friday, March 22. Arby's and the Hilton must be ordered by Friday, March 8, which means Lucie needs your order by the Sunday prior to that date (that means TODAY). Orders are not usually placed mid-week unless they are large enough to generate enough profit to cover the $8.50 shipping and handling charge on each order mailed out to us. New order forms will have Payless Shoesource removed and Bob Evans has changed from a $10 denomination to $25. See Lucie for a current order form or to place an order. Remember, the profits earned from SCRIP orders will go to a fund to help the confirmands attend the Youth Gathering this summer!
