Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) August 1, 2006
The end of summer means a new beginning for college-bound students. For many, this away-from-home experience can pose both financial and emotional challenges. Members of AP9 Connections, a leading discount membership program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, can help family and friends of college freshmen save money on entertainment and academic needs throughout the semester with gift cards.
Whether it is re-stocking school supplies or taking a break from the books to catch a blockbuster hit, AP9 Connections members can access DealPass to order gift cards for a large variety of nationally-known entertainment retailers – all at a 20% discount. Members can send a heart-felt care package or a funny college survival greeting card filled with valuable gift cards from AP9 Connections. Financial prudence is usually a new frontier for college students so gift cards are a helpful way to promote wise spending strategies.
AP9 Connections suggests these gift card ideas for helping college-bound students stay on track while having fun.
-- Hit the books. AP9 Connections offers gift cards to national media retailers which students can use for textbook and media purchases at their favorite bookstores. Although any student would appreciate the extra spending power, those enrolled in majors such as English, Creative Writing or History – those that involve required reading assignments – will need to purchase books and media on a regular basis.
-- Weekend study breaks. Music and movie gift cards are a great opportunity for that stressed-out college student to have some fun. Students can catch a new flick at their local multiplex or rent their favorite laugh-out-loud classics to unwind after a week of tough exams. Students will probably miss Mom’s home cooking so gift cards redeemable at popular restaurants are a wonderful alternative to those mysterious cafeteria concoctions.
-- Plug it in. Some universities require college students to own a computer, making gift cards to an electronics store highly valuable. Other peripheral supplies like power cords, CD-ROMs and ink cartridges are necessary but expensive for students on a budget.
Members save all year long on admission to theme parks, travel resources, toys and gifts, plus so much more – all through AP9 Connections.
