Student Pricing Card – SPC


SPC is a student-exclusive membership that provides discounts and special time offers at participating retailers across Canada, both in-store and online. SPC gets students the best deals on fashion, beauty, food, fitness, tech, everyday essentials and more—it basically pays for itself. SPC membership is available at thousands of participating locations and online to receive instant discounts every time you shop.

How it works:

A student buys a SPC membership from the CSU Bookmarket & Retail Store and upon settlement the CSU Members desk will receive acknowledgement of the purchase. They then will send out an individual code number to the email address that is given at time of purchase. This might take 4-5 days depending how busy it is at the CSU Members desk. Prior to receiving this code number, the student needs to download the SPC app from one of the App stores. Once they receive the code, they can enter the code into the SPC app and start reviewing and purchasing items at participating stores.

For more information about SPC cards, please visit the SPC Website.
