Eugene, OR (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
Four companies are providing real value this back-to-school season by giving teachers and college students exclusive special offers that are protected by SheerID. SheerID’s instant verification platform ensures that only qualified teachers and students can redeem the offers, while still keeping the shopping experience simple and streamlined.
"Any retailer can discount pencils or put backpacks on sale in August and call it a back-to-school special, but these retailers are going above and beyond by exclusively offering teachers and college students their deepest discounts and best deals on items they will need for the upcoming school year," explains Jake Weatherly, CEO of SheerID. "In the past, it’s been difficult for businesses to create exclusive offers without opening themselves up to fraud or requiring customers to jump through hoops. I’m proud that SheerID has solved those problems for retailers, and made it possible for teachers and students to get amazing bargains."
Each of these retailers understands the importance of connecting with teachers and college students during back-to-school season, the second biggest shopping season of the year.
According to the National Retail Federation, back-to-college shopping is expected to generate $45.8 billion in sales this year, and recent surveys reveal that teachers spend over $1.8 billion from their own pockets each school year for supplies for their classrooms.
Karen Kane, women’s apparel designer, is just one retailer utilizing SheerID’s verification software to help teachers and students kick the school year off right.
"With fall just around the corner, we're very excited to be able to provide an exclusive discount to teachers and students for a stylish start of a new school year," says Michael Kane, Marketing Director for Karen Kane. "There's no better way to celebrate returning to classrooms and campuses than with some brand new clothes."
The newest companies using SheerID’s verification platform to offer discounts this back-to-school season include the following:
Retailers like OnePlay and the other companies who recently launched new offers for back-to-school know that by offering college students and teachers discounts year round, they can form relationships with these key customers and earn their loyalty.
"OnePlay is very pleased to offer college students a permanent 10% discount on every PC game we sell including classics, new releases, and preorders," said Sean Dazet, OnePlay’s VP of Marketing. "Combined with our already low prices it should enable college kids to play all of the games they want while saving money!"
