I bought the SPC card under the impression that it would procure discounts and pay itself off. However, my experience has been less than ideal.
In the past two weeks, I have been denied the discounts as written in the brochure set with the card, at multiple businesses, even when I show them the supposed discounts they said they would offer through SPC: including:
33 Heritage Meadows Way SE, Calgary AB
501 1 Ave S, Lethbridge, AB
American Eagle Outfitters
Chinook Centre, 655 Macleod Trail SW, Calgary, AB
Chinook Centre, 6455 MacLeod Trail S.W. Calgary
I understand that different locations can set different standards for their discounts but to have been denied from all these locations seems like deceptive advertising to me. I even showed them the printed brochure at all these places and they all treated me like I was student-garbage.
Why bother going to these places if there is no real incentive, even with the card that’s supposedly tailored for students? Lies, very rude.
