TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/04/13 -- As part of BMO Financial Group's ongoing commitment to financial literacy and 'Making Money Make Sense', BMO is releasing a financial tip every day in the summer to help Canadians make the 'BMOst of summer' in 2013.
'BMOst of Summer' Financial Tip of the Day: Take advantage of your "student status" throughout the summer.
As most student discount and reward programs are offered year-round, students should take advantage of their exclusive "status" throughout the summertime to save money and make the most of their summer purchases. For example, the Student Price Card (SPC) offers discounts at hundreds of fashion, dining, beauty and lifestyle retailers across Canada.
"Just because you're on vacation doesn't mean your budget is. Students should make the most of their 'student status' by continuing to stretch their dollar once classes are out of session," said Nick Mastromarco, Director, BMO Bank of Montreal. "BMO offers a no-fee BMO SPC credit card, with built in SPC card benefits, which provides a convenient and secure payment method that can save time and money - so you can enjoy your time off without worrying about overextending yourself."
BMO offers a number of products and services that can help Canadians get more out of every dollar they spend this summer. For more details on how to make the 'BMOst of Summer,' drop by a BMO branch or visit www.bmo.com.
