Digger Dollars

Digger Dollars

In addition to other locations on campus, Digger Dollars can be used at any Dining Services venue. Digger Dollars work as a declining balance system where the customer adds funds to an account which is associated with their Digger Card. It is pay-as-you-go for dining. Anyone with a Montana Tech Digger Card and ID number may purchase Digger Dollars.

Customers using Digger Dollars receive a discount of up to 30% off the cash prices in our all-you-care-to-eat Marcus Deli Buffet.

Digger Dollar funds remain on your account as long as you are active in the system and they are refundable. Plan your funds carefully and deposit only funds you know you will use in a specific amount of time. Funds remaining on your account after your account becomes inactive are forfeited.

Digger Dollars can be purchased in the Digger Card Center located downstairs in the Student Union Building adjacent to the Mail and Copy Center.
