Last year, HFC Families saved over $38,000 on their personal soccer fees by shopping at ingles with gift cards purchased through HFC. Some HFC Families paid for ALL of their soccer fees by using and selling ingles gift cards! 

Here is how you save money, you buy a $100 gift card, you get $100 in groceries or gas and $5.00 gets credited to your HFC fees account.
Shop at ingles using gift cards all year and you can make a BIG DENT in your soccer bill!

How Ingles Gift Card Program works in general:

For many years, ABYSA and HFC have partnered with Ingles by offering Ingles Gift Cards to families with soccer players as a great personal fundraising opportunity. Since ABYSA is a not-for-profit organization, Ingles sells Gift Cards to ABYSA in bulk for 95% of face value. On all the gift cards you purchase from ABYSA, that 5% discount is passed on to you to offset your ABYSA fees. ABYSA  purchases cards with a face value of $100, so all orders must be in increments of $100 .

The program is coordinated and run by volunteers to ABYSA. The 5% discount from Ingles is passed on entirely to you. There are well over 100 families, one from almost every team, currently participating.Where can I pick up ingles gift cards?Just contact one of our Scrip Distributors below (at least 24 hours notice please):ABYSA Office (weekdays)  Monica BastinArden/South Asheville Robert CorleyHendersonville- United Community Bank  (during banking hours), located on Hwy 64, across from Walmart

Additional Information and Tips
  • You will see the 5% credit you have earned in your Play Metrics Account generally in the month after you buy the cards.
  • They are considered CASH and cannot be deactivated, refunded, etc. Keep them safe.
  • Occasionally, the magnetic strip may go bad on a card, especially if you keep it next to a cell phone or magnet. The cashier can type in the number on the bottom of the card to use it.
  • Throw away emptied cards. Don’t reload them at Ingles because you won’t get the 5% credit for soccer. Only cards purchased through ABYSA will give you the 5% benefit.
  • To check card balance, call the toll-free number on the back of the card. Punch in the card number as directed, and the automated system will tell you the balance as well as the usage record for that card – dates and amounts of each purchase.
