Students can save big at campus bookstore

YU Card

The York University Bookstore is launching a new initiative designed to save students money. This fall whenever students shop at the Bookstore using their YU-card Flex Dollars, they’ll automatically receive five per cent or more back in Scholar Dollars.

YU CardNo sign-up is required – students just need to load their YU-cards with Flex Dollars. Every dollar they spend at the Bookstore on everything, from textbooks and stationery to art supplies and more, using their YU-card is eligible for Scholar Dollars.

Students can save the Scholar Dollars and redeem them for any item at the Bookstore. For every one Scholar Dollar redeemed, $1 will be taken off the purchase price. In addition, any student who redeems 100 Scholar Dollars on a single purchase will receive a bonus $100 gift card for a total of $200 in savings at the bookstore. That adds up to 10 per cent in free merchandise.

The Scholar Dollars become available 35 days after the purchase and are awarded at a rate of five per cent on purchases with five per cent tax, 5.38 per cent on purchase with 13 per cent tax and 4.76 per cent on purchases without tax.
