Managing your Plan
Your Saver Meal Plan balance is listed on the bottom of the receipt each time you make a purchase. You can also review all of your purchasing history on onecardmcgill.ca
To stay within budget while getting a balanced meal on the Saver Meal Plan, we recommend planning your meals around the hot meal of the day. The meal of the day is a complete and nutritious meal that's prepared daily.
Grill items, sushi, and desserts are all items that can add up if eaten on a regular basis. Don't make these a part of your regular rotation unless you plan on topping up your Meal Plan during the semester.
Pay attention to your beverage choices. Bottled specialty drinks increase your total bill quickly. In fact, some of these drinks retail at almost half of the price of a full meal! Remember, water is available at every dining hall and it's free!
