I’ve been in school for almost a month, and it already feels like an entire semester. I’m not complaining though, as a senior (SHOUT OUT TO C/O 2015), I completely understand the phrase “time flies when you’re having fun”. Going back to school can be a total drag, but with these awesome gifts, eCampus.com hopes to make buying books, waking up early and going to class a little brighter. More importantly, eCampus.com launched the Swagalicious Social Giveaway to celebrate both students and eCampus.com’s 15th Anniversary!

 This weekly “swagged out” giveaway includes beneficial prizes that all college students want/need.

 Week 1: Nike Gift Card – You do a ton of walking. Let’s keep those bunions to a minimum!

Week 2: eCampus.com – I mean, you obvi need textbooks from us! Duh!

Week 3: Keurig – Ah, late nights and early mornings… Both will require coffee and other awesome Keurig treats.

Week 4: Target Gift Card – To ease that intense, anxious feeling right before you check your bank account.

Week 5: Walmart Gift Card– Because, what can you not find at Walmart?

Week 6: iPad Mini – For when you don’t feel like paying attention in Tuesday/Thursday classes. Totally kidding!

 Here are our winners so far!

Blog Post Winners

The final two prizes are: Beats by Dre headphones, for when your life needs a movie-like soundtrack, and a Playstation 4, for when you need to chillax after that killer test.

Home for the Holidays Contest Final Version (3)

Everyone’s favorite season has finally arrived! It’s the time of year when ice skating downtown with friends every weekend is the norm, drinking hot chocolate and eating sweet treats daily is acceptable, and heading home to spend time with family and friends is what every college student looks forward to the most. I, like most students, love being away at school for the majority of the semester. However, as soon as Mariah Carey Christmas carols hit the radio and bells start ringing for The Salvation Army outside of the local grocery store, my anticipation to get home for the holidays begins.

Although we all look forward to heading home for the holidays, we at eCampus.com understand that for some, it can be difficult to get there. No one should have to spend their holiday in a deserted college town for lack of traveling expenses. Now, with our help, hopefully no one will have to! We are proud to announce our Home for the Holidays contest. We are celebrating the season of giving by paying for one student to travel home for the holidays. One lucky winner will receive a $300 check to spend on travel expenses this holiday season. Whether by plane, train or automobile, we want to send you home for the holidays!

To enter, simply answer the question “What do you love most about going home for the holidays?” through our Facebook or Twitter page. For Twitter, tweet your answer to @ecampusdotcom using #homefortheholidays. For Facebook, visit the eCampus.com Facebook page and click on the Home for the Holidays link at the top of the page.

For those of you who will be traveling on your own dime this holiday season, don’t forget to check out Orbitz.com for top travel deals.

Good luck and happy holidays from the eCampus.com team!

Have you heard about eCampus.com’s Beat The Boredom photo contest? Any student that enters a photo of them “beating the boredom” with their textbook box is eligible to win one of seven $25 Visa gift cards, and one lucky student will receive the grand prize of $500 to spend however they want!

What would I do with an extra $500?! I could easily spend it all in one day. It’s actually sad thinking about how I’d have no problem spending it all in a matter of hours. I’d probably first treat myself to a spa day. I’d get myself a manicure, pedicure, facial and massage. Then, with the money I’d have left over, I would go to the mall and easily spend the rest on clothes, shoes and accessories. Or I would use the $500 towards an iPad (I’ve been really wanting one)?! If that didn’t happen, maybe I’d buy myself a camera. There’s a million things I would do with $500!

What should I do with an extra $500? That’s a whole different story. I should put it towards my monthly rent payment. Or I should put it into my savings to use for future school expenses. But that’s the difference between would and should.

What would you do with an extra $500? Submit your photo in the contest and you could be the lucky winner! Better start thinking about what you would do with some extra money. In the meantime, here is a little motivation to help get your creative juices flowing. This robot box is anything but boring!
