At IGNITE, we care about students’ mental and financial well-being. So, we want to share some of the discounts available for students to reduce a few of those financial burdens.

We know being a student, to begin with, is taxing and stressful at times. But living on a budget is even more so!

Hence, we pulled up our socks so you could run in discounted shoes.

Here are a few student discounts in Canada that may help you save a few bucks. 

Banks and bonuses

In Canada, students enjoy free transfer as well as many added privileges. Some banks even give you $100 – $150 for opening a student account in their bank. So if you’re opening a new bank account, make sure to tell them you’re a student!

For the price of $10+ taxes for a year, the SPC card provides innumerable discounts to students. From high-end retail brands to electronic stores and even restaurants, with an SPC card, you can get 15% to 60% off on products with participating collaborators.

One good thing about being a student is that everything in Toronto, especially events, skating rinks, and exhibitions, have a discounted rate for students. You just have to make sure you ask so you don’t miss out on some savings! 

So now,  all you need are some cool outfits (courtesy of student discounted retailers of course) accompanied by your Humber ID card to go out, have fun and save on a few bucks.
