TORONTO, Aug. 7, 2012 /CNW/ - Student Price Card (SPC Card) is coming back to Illinois for a second year of giving students exclusive savings. The unique program, which gives students instant discounts when they flash the card, helps young people save at the places they love to shop.
This year, SPC Card is welcoming new retailers to its list, including Macy's, Tommy Hilfiger and Zipcar. These newcomers join retailers like Forever 21, Gap, Qdoba Mexican Grill, G by Guess and New York & Company.
"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 have to be 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 SPC Card eliminates the need to carry around stacks of cards for individual store chains. This single card gives students a discount, usually 10-15% off, at stores that participate in the program. Students simply show the card and get the discount.
While the SPC Card program has been running since 1992 in Canada, it's only just beginning in the United States. After an exciting first year of deals in Illinois, the company is ready for 2012-13.
The card runs in line with the school year, from August 1 each year until July 31 of the following year, allowing students to take advantage of it from back-to-school time straight through until summer holidays.
Students can get the card at Macy's, Forever 21, Gap, Skechers or their school.
