Dear <preferred name>,
We wanted to remind you that you own a UBCcard Plan. You purchased
it recently or long ago, or your Residence Meal Plan Flex Dollars expired and
your remaining funds were auto-transferred into this plan. Either way, you’ve
got money to spend on food, drinks and more. Hooray!
Use your UBCcard Plan to save 5% off food and non-alcoholic drinks at 30+ UBC
Food Service Locations. Plus, use it for purchases at regular prices at 20+
Campus Partners, participating campus vending machines, Pay-For-Print services, and more.
The UBCcard Plan is non-transferable and refundable ($25 admin. fee). Dollars
do not expire. Your account will be deactivated if it has not been used in four years.
- Login to the Online Service Centre with your CWL to see how much money you have to spend.
- Take a moment to understand how your plan works and where you can eat.
- Spend your money! Make purchases by swiping your UBCcard like a debit card at any UBC Food Services location.
See you soon and hope you had a magical summer,
The UBC Food Services Team
