H&R Block Canada Offers Student Savings, Concert Trip
H&R Block Canada Inc. and SPC Card announced a new partnership to deliver free SPC Cards to students choosing H&R Block for their tax preparation and the chance to win an all expenses paid trip to a Fall Out Boy concert somewhere in Canada or the U.S.
Participating students will activate their free SPC Card at rockwithblock.ca and immediately be entered to win a trip to see multi-platinum artist Fall Out Boy in a secret destination. The band will be touring in support of their recently released album, Infinity On High, through Island Records/ Universal Music Canada.
“H&R Block Canada is extremely pleased to be partnering with SPC Card - the leader in student loyalty programs,” said Todd McCallum, Vice President, Market and Business Development, H&R Block Canada Inc. “SPC Card has built an impressive national program that is meaningful to a wide-range of students. By combining their proven, value-added product and some cool, customized contests, H&R Block can build our profile with this very important demographic.”
“SPC Card is excited about working with Canada's most respected tax preparation company,” said Dean Mazzariol, President, SPC Card Inc. “More importantly; we see this as a great service to students in providing them with excellent added value.”
Students must be either full-time college or university students or attend high school full-time to qualify. Students who use participating H&R Block locations for their tax preparation will automatically receive a free SPC Card. An SPC Card can save a student hundreds of dollars per year through repeat, instant discounts at more than 100 national retailers such as Aldo, Athlete's World, Bentley, Bluenotes, Buffalo, Burger King, Esprit, FCUK, Foot Locker, GNC, Guess, Jack Astor's, Kernels, Levi's, Payless ShoeSource, Roots, Second Cup, Sport Chek, Transit and Xcetera.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
