CRUSADER CASH is a gift card purchase program run by Holy Cross HSA .
Participants purchase gift cards at face value from HSA. HSA is able to purchase gift
cards to sell to you at a discounted rate. The “discount” represents the earnings
available to be used by the participant to reduce tuition costs, fundraising obligation
or donate towards our Guardian Angel Fund (tuition assistance). It’s a win/win situation
for everyone! (Ex. $100 Jewel Gift Card is purchased by HSA for $96 and sold to
participant for $100. Earnings = $4)
What will I earn per gift card purchased?
Participant earnings depend on the discount associated with the merchant involved.
Discounts range from 1.5% to 25%, but generally average around 5%. While this
amount may seem small, the numbers add up if you regularly participate. For example,
assume you purchase $100 in grocery gift cards per week throughout the school year.
You will earn over half of your $250 fundraising obligation in grocery purchases alone –
at no extra cost to you! There is no limit on the amount you can earn! The variables are
the discount offered by the merchant and how much you spend.
How will the earnings be distributed?
90% of a participant’s earnings (Ex. Jewel $100 gift card above - 90% of $4 = $3.60) go
towards tuition obligation, fundraising obligation, or donation to the Guardian Angel
Fund (tuition assistance). The remaining 10% (Ex. $0.40) goes to HSA to cover the
costs of the program – shipping, printing and supplies.
