A local business is now offering an off campus meal plan for San Diego students, which provides them with a refillable debit card that can be used at 27 participating restaurants throughout the city, according The Daily Aztec.
Appropriately named San Diego Student Dollars, the program provides students with debit cards which enables students and parents to access an online account at any time to view balances, add money, or set up a direct deposit to take money straight from their bank account.
Members may choose from a variety of meal plans, based on their budget and eating habits. The company’s Web site lists five plans ranging from $98 to $1,372, which includes 14 to 196 meals per semester, respectively.
Plan members may dine in, take out or have food brought to their house or residence hall if the restaurant delivers. There are no cancellation or overdraft fees with the plan, and the money on the card does not expire.
Alcohol and tobacco purchases are prohibited, assuring parents that their money is being spent wisely, according to company officials.
