Frequently Asked Questions

What is Edvantage?

Edvantage offers great rewards and discounts to education employees and their families through partnerships with retailers and businesses throughout Ontario. OTIP administers Edvantage on behalf of your teachers' association. Through continued support from our partners, Edvantage is able to offer great discounts, special offers and contests to you, our valued members.

What is my Edvantage card?

Your card serves a dual purpose as your association card and your Edvantage membership card. Partners require your Edvantage number (X digit number located on your card) as well as the name of your association, in order to administer the discount.

How do I find out my Edvantage number? If you do not have your card showing your Edvantage number, please contact your association to confirm your number and have a new card issued to you, if required. 

Do I need to have my Edvantage card or Edvantage number to access a deal?

Any Edvantage partner can ask you to produce your Edvantage card (your union card) or to provide your Edvantage number (found on your Edvantage/union card) at the time of purchase to be eligible for an Edvantage offer. Although this may not always be the case, if you are unable to provide proof of Edvantage membership, either by your card or by your number when asked, the price may be adjusted and the Edvantage offer may not apply.
