Back to school savings

August 15, 2019 | Jacqueline Anderson

It's hard to believe, but the days are growing shorter and the fall semester is fast approaching. With this comes the expense of back-to-school shopping. The good news? As a CAA Member, you can save big on staple items at over 160,000 Rewards Partners across North America. 

Check out how Members can get an A+ on savings this back-to-school season:

Save on food


Whether you want to grab a bite to eat between classes or are looking for the perfect restaurant for date night, CAA preferred dining partners can help. Simply swipe your CAA card at participating restaurants such as Harvey's, New York Fries, Montana's, and Kelseys to save up to 10% on your bill. Members also receive a complimentary appetizer or dessert when dining at Swiss Chalet and Milestones.

Tip: Looking for a gift for the busy student in your life? The Ultimate Dining Card (UDC) is a great way to ensure they're being fed the meals they know and love between long study sessions. Plus, as a CAA Member, you'll save 5% when you purchase an UDC online. 


After a long day of classes, check out an open mic event or improv performance at Mahtay Cafe in downtown St. Catharines. Members save 10% on freshly made food and drinks, including signature power bowls and handcrafted espressos. 

Tip: Have a few hours to spare between classes? Grab a good read from the community bookshelf, or challenge your friends to one of their many board games. 

Save on clothing and accessories


Students and young professionals taking their look from the classroom to job interviews will enjoy RW&CO.'s curated collection of professional wear. From suits and dresses, to sweaters and outerwear, it's never been easier for students to elevate their style. Members save 10%* on the last ticketed price. 

Tip: Shop with functionality in mind. To maximize your budget, avoid trends and opt for classic pieces that can be worn all school-year. Try accessorizing with trends, which can be mixed and matched to compliment any outfit. 



With the help of ALDO, it's easy to look stylish on campus. From dress shoes and sneakers to handbags and backpacks, students can show off their signature style. Members earn 6% back in CAA Dollars® on online purchases. 

Save on electronics 

No shopping list is complete without the latest tech. Students can shop online or in-store for the best in laptops, smart watches, headphones and more at The Source. Browse top brands, including Fitbit, Apple, and Samsung. Members save up to 20% off the lowest-marked price. 

Head back to campus fully stocked with ink, paper products, and portable hard drives. Beatties Basics has everything you need to complete your study space and stay organized this semester, including furniture, wireless printers, and desk accessories. Members save 10% on office supplies, and 5% on ink
