The benefits of a campus card are evident for many, but it’s always good to provide student and campus community members of the credential’s benefits.
As reported by La Voz News, De Anza College’s campus card carries a number of perks and stresses that paying the nominal fee for a DASB card is a wise investment for the access to the wide variety of programs, rewards and free services the credential provides.
Included with a DASB card are numerous discounts, notably discounted movie tickets for AMC and Cinemark. De Anza students can purchase tickets at several dollars off the regular price, with a max of ten tickets per week, per student.
A number of local restaurants and shops also offer discounts, including Subway, Togo’s and Thai Square, and the college has pooled all these discounts on a single webpage for student convenience. Another key benefit that De Anza’s ID card provides is access to the De Anza Food Pantry for any students that meet the income requirement guidelines.
The DASB card can also be used to assist students in their travels, as the credential is used to support a campus bike program. The program enables DASB card holders to rent bikes for off-campus use provided the student is 18 years of age or older. Integration with the Eco Pass Clipper Card, meanwhile, grants students unlimited access to local transportation via the VTA and Light Rail system.
The DASB card can also be used as a cash purse to store up to $100. Funds are protected by a pin for any purchases over $25 and the card can be used as a physical wallet.
Elsewhere on campus, the DASB card is required to checkout books or rent study rooms at the De Anza library, and can even be used to rent a laptop for either hours or days at a time, depending on the device rented. By extension, the card also gives students access to the library’s databases, including news sources such as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post and the Christian Science Monitor.
