The objectives of the study are to find out the ability of the students of MAN 2Pati in who are taught by using Spend-A-Buck in reading report text and those who are not taught by using Spend-A-Buck in reading report text, and to find out if there is any significant difference of the ability of the students between those who are taught by using Spend-A-Buck and not taught by using Spend-A-Buck in reading report text. This research design was quasi-experimental research. The instrument used in collecting the data was reading test, pre-test and post-test. The research was conducted in MAN 2Pati. The samples of this research were two class of the eleventh grade students of MAN2Pati, where XI IPS 4 is as experimental group and XI IPS 3 is as control group. Based on the research findings, the writer found that (1) Spend-A-Buck enhanced students’ ability in readingreport text. Pre-test mean score of experimental class was 70.80 and post-test mean score was 83.07. The increase was 12.27, so it could be concluded that the students’ ability in readingreport text taught by usingSpend-A-Buckwas categorized “good” (2) The writer found that the result of control class pre-test was 70.00 and post-test was 73.47. The students’ ability in readingreport text increased 3.47. It was not too significant and was categorized in “fair” level (3) by using SPSS 16.0 program in the calculation, there was any significant difference of the quality of reading of the students taught by using Spend-A-Buck and those who were not taught by using Spend-A-Buck. It could be seen from the result of t-test (4.566) was higher than t-table (1.699).It answered the problems of this study that there was significant difference in the students’ reading ability taught by using Spend-A-Buck and those who were not taught by using Spend-A-Buck.
