I recently bought an SPL meter but when it came it's only dbA, A-weighted only the problem is i do not have any money left to buy a new meter at this time my budget is stretched thin. My question is can this still be used to calibrate my monitors to use REW. Please i would really love your replies.

You don't really need to Calibrate your monitors. You could just play music at a nice volume and presume that is 85dBC
Or download a free or very cheap app. https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/noise/app.html
Do you have a measurement or any omni microphone?
