Waltham, MA (April 9, 2012) — Today, StudentUniverse, the leading resource for student deals and travel discounts, launched its new deals service for college students to access exclusive deals from hundreds of national brands. StudentUniverse has negotiated student discounts in electronics, clothing, books, school and dorm supplies, entertainment, food and health products, and financial services – making StudentUniverse the best place for college students to start a search for any purchase.
Unlike daily deals, StudentUniverse’s deals service encourages smart shopping habits over impulse decisions. The company has created a discount destination where college students can find savings from hundreds of their favorite brands whenever they intend to purchase. StudentUniverse’s patented and proven verification system assures each buyer is a college student, giving merchants the confidence to make their best discounts available on StudentUniverse.com.
“We constantly advocate for college student discounts, and this service is a big step forward in making student discounts easier to find. Our members can now save on computers, dorm supplies and new clothes on the same site they trust to save on travel,” said Atle Skalleberg, CEO of StudentUniverse. “Millions of students already visit us each year, making us – at launch – the best way for merchants to reach this important group of consumers. The proof is in exclusive and substantial offers from leading brands that are on StudentUniverse right now, and we are just getting started.”
At launch, the site will feature discounts on hundreds of thousands of products from hundreds of leading brands that are only for members of StudentUniverse. The program is free for students to join and discounts are offered directly from the merchant. Many more member-only deals are expected in time for the back-to-school season.
