Student Price Card membership climbs
TORONTO--In the face of two months of falling Canadian consumer confidence, SPC Card leaps forward in membership with a trend towards 935,000 members, a jump of 30% over last year. The new 2010-2011 SPC Card launched in August with an 83% increase in online member registrations. The results are attributed to the cost-savings value the SPC Card loyalty program provides to student shoppers during times of low consumer confidence. SPC Card has also added more than a dozen new retailers and offers including new stores such as American Eagle Outfitters, Blockbuster, Costa Blanca, Danier, Mexx, Rexall/Pharma Plus, Second Cup, and The Body Shop.
As the economy continues to lag, SPC Card benefits students with deals like 10% off of regular and sale priced merchandise at American Eagle Outfitters and $5 off $20 purchase at The Body Shop help students to save money on their back-to-school shopping. "The SPC Card has saved me hundreds of dollars while going to school" says 19 year old Sharmaine Zheng from Lethbridge, AB. "I am still looking good with all these amazing discounts!"
The new 2010-2011 SPC Card is available for sale for $9 online at spccard.ca and at national retailers including American Eagle Outfitters, Foot Locker, and Shoppers Drug Mart.
Student Price Card is North America's largest student loyalty program with over 120 national retail partners and over 720,000 student shopper members in Canada. In 2007 SPC Card launched a student credit card, the BMO SPC MasterCard, with BMO Bank of Montreal.
