sQuid and Loyalty purses
Your sQuid account balance online will show two purses.
Your sQuid purse will show funds that you have added to your account.
Your Loyalty purse will show funds that have been added by LSE through the Early Payment Reward, or the Loyalty Reward. See below for more information about these reward schemes.
When using sQuid you should always let the cashier know whether you would like to pay using your sQuid purse or your Loyalty purse.
Early Payment Reward
Students who pay their fees early may be eligible for an Early Payment Reward. This reward is added to the loyalty purse on your sQuid account.
You must register at squidcard.com/LSE in order for the Early Payment Reward to be added to your account. If you are experiencing any difficulties, please see the FAQs for further advice.
When spending your Early Payment Reward, remember to let the cashier know that you would like the funds to come from your loyalty purse.
Questions about the Early Payment Reward should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you use your sQuid purse to pay for food and drinks on campus, LSE will give you back 10% of the total value of your purchase. This is known as the loyalty reward. Every Monday, any loyalty reward that you accrued during the previous week will be added to your account.
Please note that you will not receive a loyalty reward for payments made using your loyalty purse. If you have any issues with the loyalty reward, please contact sQuid directly.
Loyalty rewards for the 2012/13 academic year must be redeemed by 31st July 2013.

Lost, stolen or damaged cards
If your student ID card becomes lost, stolen or damaged, it is important that you put a hold on your account immediately by following the directions provided on the Student ID card page.
Updating your contact details with sQuid
If your contact details have changed, you must update this information both in LSE for You and on the sQuid website. When you update your contact details on sQuid, your details will not be automatically updated on LSE for You, and vice versa. Please keep your contact details up to date in both locations at all times.
sQuid is a separate organisation and most queries regarding your account should go directly to their customer services team. The Student Services Centre is unlikely to be able to assist with many sQuid account related issues.
However, if your questions are regarding the Early Payment Reward, please contact the Fees Office.
