TORONTO, July 31, 2012 /CNW/ - SPC Card, Canada's #1 student loyalty
program, launches its new card on Aug 1 with a handful of hot retailers
newly added to its roster.
"With a tough job market and high costs for students, it's becoming more
important than ever for young people and their parents to find the best
deals around," said SPC Card President, Dean Mazzariol. "Consumers are
increasingly careful when spending money and we're working our hardest
to offer students deals at the stores they go to all the time."
The 2012/13 card returns with some popular stores on its list that
haven't been part of the program before, including American Apparel,
Bath & Body Works, Express, Forever 21, Mr. Sub, Urban Outfitters and
Aside from the addition of 13 new retailers, SPC Card is further
embracing the digital world. With an enhanced mobile app, a digital
editor, a new blog in tow, and an increased presence on channels like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, SPC Card is getting on the same level as the students who use it.
"We really want to engage with our members and show them that we care
about what they need," said Jordana Levine, SPC Card's new digital
editor. "It's important start having real conversations with them,
rather than just giving them information, and social media is the best
way to do that."
SPC Card is Canada's most popular student loyalty program with over
1,100,000 members and over 100 participating retail chains like
Aeropostale, American Eagle Outfitters, The Body Shop, Bluenotes, Foot
Locker, Gap, Jack Astor's and Rexall Pharma Plus.
Students can buy SPC Cards at various retailers, online, or through
their campus bookstore or high school.
