For example, let's say you are on the Weekly Block 14. On Sunday, you eat breakfast and lunch at Gwinn. That evening, you choose to use your SPU points to pick up a Subway sandwich for a study group with friends. Your two entrances into Gwinn would be taken off of your balance of 14, leaving you with 12 to use for the remainder of the week. The cost of your Subway sandwich would be deducted from your point balance (see "Understanding SPU Points" below). Block and SPU point balances are available from the cashier and via the Campus Card website.
Understanding SPU Points
Weekly Block plans come with SPU Points, which are worth a penny a point and save you sales tax. For example, let’s say you have a Weekly Block 21 plan, which includes 7,500 points ($75). You want to purchase a latte at Academic Perks for $2.80. The cashier will deduct 280 points from your balance, leaving you with 7,220 ($72.20) to use the remainder of the quarter. Unused SPU Points will roll from quarter to quarter, but not year to year.
Note: To supplement your Block 25 or Block 50 plan, or if you run out of SPU points on your Weekly Block Plan, you may purchase Falcon Funds, SPU’s campus currency, to use at retail dining locations.
