How do You Shoparoo?
If you're not a Fountaindale Shoparoo-er yet, what are you waiting for? It's so simple & absolutely FREE!
Three Easy Steps:
See? Easy peasy! Spread the word because the more Shoparoo-ers we have, the more money we can earn! Tell parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, etc. because they don't have to live here to help, they can live across the country or even across the world!
Which receipts count?
For Roo Points:
Snap pictures of your receipts from any store, big or small, that primarily sells food, health items, beauty items, and/or pet items to earn Roo Points (cash donations) for the Fountaindale PTA.
Snap pictures of all your other receipts, like restaurants and clothing stores, to earn entries for your school into Shoparoo's $1,000 monthly sweepstakes and $15,000 yearly sweepstakes! Each receipt counts as an entry into both monthly and yearly sweepstakes, so spread the word at your school - the more receipts you submit, the greater your school's chance is of winning.
For more information, please visit the Shoparoo FAQ.
