    I agree
    The SPC VIP card was a great deal to combine with Zellers clearance and bonus HBC points offers.
    I think the SPC company made a bad decision.
    They are probably losing with this decision.
    Hope they read Smart Canucks to see how disappointed people are.

    Not very convenient having to take your student children with you everywhere you want to shop with the SPC card ?

    Don’t they realize that the adults usually have more disposable cash for purchases and will spend much,much more than a student will?

    As well, most stores won’t allow the use of the SPC card if there is another discount promo on , which pretty well is most of the time these days !
    For myself, NO VIP card then NO SPC card !

    Ya, it is craptastic that it’s not a vip card, but there are lotsof students on here too 🙂

    I had the VIP card and was pretty disappointed last year when they discontinued it. I bought it for my teenage son anyways and don’t think he’s used it a single time. Me and SPC are officially splitsville 🙁

    I think they realize that adults have more disposable income…so it means they have the ability to spend more lol. I don’t know about you but I was definitely a lot poorer when I was a student and loved the SPC discounts. 😉 And I really don’t think adults are their target audience… I mean it’s a STUDENT price card! You can’t complain about a card that wasn’t even marketed specifically at you.

    Although, if this is a horrible decision, I’m sure SPC will rectify it. Either the existing card holders will complain (I kind of doubt that if they’re already eligible to use the regular card), the number of people buying/using SPC cards will drop (i.e. the students), or merchants will complain. Remember when Second Cup didn’t do SPC for a year, but rejoined the program the year after? 🙂 If it hits the bottom line, people will care. But I think non-students not using the program won’t impact SPC as much because the VIP program was only ever a small portion of SPC (I am making an educated guess, based on how you had to subscribe to LouLou to get it). There is still a very large population of students, and I think the deals, in general, stay the same each year so if you just have a handful of stores you could use the card at, you’re already ahead.

    Don’t get me wrong. I can understand the frustrations because I had a VIP card as well! I really liked the VIP one because it meant not having to worry about digging out your student ID at all, in case people ask (although it seems to be only Swiss Chalet that ever asked). I also wanted to give the magazine subscription a try. (Although after I realized LouLou was garbage and only flipped through it to see if there were coupons. =P)
