eCampus.com Introduces eWards

Finally, get rewarded for buying your textbooks and other college merchandise….

eCampus.com is so proud to announce our eCampus.com eWards loyalty program! eWards is the ultimate loyalty program for buyers of college textbooks and merchandise. Just like everything on eCampus.com, earning and redeeming eWards for exclusive rewards and VIP benefits is easy, simple and fun.

There are two ways to enroll, after a purchase, or via the customer’s eCampus.com account. In fact, just signing up earns members 50 points. Once enrolled, members receive a 5% off deal that they can easily share via Facebook, Twitter, or email. If a friend completes a purchase through the shared link, referral points will be awarded to the original customer.

The eCampus.com eWards program lets students use the power of their social network to save money on future textbook purchases. Members can come back to eCampus.com throughout the semester and continue to earn points by simply sharing deals and products to their social network. This way, members collect points throughout the semester that can be used toward next semester’s textbook purchases.

In addition to social media and email, members also earn eWards points when buying, renting and selling books and other merchandise – and they can trade in their eWards points to earn rewards and discounts toward shipping and future purchases.

After each purchase, members will be awarded badges that they can share with their friends and contacts throughout social media. Badges represent college progression from freshman year to graduate school and beyond.

One profitable feature for members is the ability to earn eWards when renting books—two points per dollar. Given that 79% of responders in a recent eCampus.com survey said that they rented their textbooks, earning points from renting could easily become the most popular and lucrative consumer feature.

Customers also have a chance to earn both cash and eWards when selling books back to eCampus. eWards members will receive one point per dollar when selling books back to eCampus.com or through the Marketplace, where books are sold to other students.

eTextbooks May Save Money But Not Necessarily Time

Recently at eCampus.com we conducted a survey to find out reasons why students might purchase an eTextbook over a traditional one. With this growing textbook trend we were curious to know what factors were going into student’s decision making. Our findings showed that “lower price” outweighed both “instant access” and “portability.” This is an interesting find because textbook rental is still the most cost effective way to get a textbook. Although students found eTextbooks to be a money-saving option, they may not be the time-saver many assume them to be. Survey results show nearly half of all respondents saved only one hour or less per week by using eTextbooks.

eCampus.com has seen a gradual increase in eTextbook popularity since they were first introduced a few years ago. eCampus.com now carries more than 100,000 eTextbook titles on its site all available for instant access. Typically, an eTextbook can save students anywhere from 20 to 35 percent off of the list price of the physical textbook which is very attractive to most college students. Another feature that students enjoy about eTextbooks is the ability to take notes and highlight, or copy and paste text and print pages. When asked students participants found the “search” feature to be the overall favorite, followed by “highlighting” and “copy/paste.” Everyone knows that college students are all about saving money when it comes to school, so it is no surprise they value the lowest priced option for textbooks.
