Retail Rebates-Compras

COMPRAS (Merchant Program) is a year-round fundraising program that supports our school programs without asking for a dime from you. That's right! You do your normal shopping and merchants donate to EBI. The donation from each merchant varies (between 2-16%). All donations go directly to improving programs for our kids. There are three easy ways for you (and your family and friends) to participate:

1. Buy Cash Cards

  • Cash cards are like gift cards but are used everyday, not just for gifts!
  • Purchase cards weekly or monthly for merchants you shop with regularly
  • Pay by cash, check or onlyne with PrestoPay
  • Buy and pickup cards in the courtyard during Compras Table hours
    • Alcatraz: every Friday from 8:15-9:15 a.m.
  • Cards available for purchase every day: Berkeley Bowl, Whole Foods, Peet's Coffee and Tea, Lands End, Gap/Banana Republic/Old Navy, iTunes, Amazon, Target
  • Place special orders with a COMPRAS volunteer, by emailing: or online, visit to see all of the 700+ participating merchants.

2. Shop Amazon

  • Start every Amazon shopping session here
  • Find the Amazon link or "search widget" below
  • Click on the black bar that says "Search New and Used at or type something in the "Search" box
  • Share the amazon link with family and friends and shop! (EBI receives between 4.5-8%)
