Buying local and getting rewarded for it is the driving force behind the Campus Store Rewards Program at Alfred State College. Students who purchase their books and most other college-related items at either the Wellsville or Alfred Campus Store will receive points toward future purchases from the store. The program is available to students right now and will soon be available to alumni.
“The Campus Store Rewards Program is a way for us to reward our most loyal customers,” explained Sean McDonough, the store manager. “We know that the cost of textbooks can be high because of academic and publisher requirements, so we came up with a plan to help students receive a little kick-back for purchases to lighten the financial burden just a little bit.”
“The loyalty program should be just the kind of incentive that students need to buy their books locally instead of over the Internet. We think the Campus Store is the right place to purchase books because of our convenience, our return policy, and our quality guarantee. Now students will get points to spend in the store on future purchases too,” McDonough added.
Students must sign-up for the program on the Campus Store’s Web site. Once they are signed up, they’ll earn points for purchases, although some items like electronics and snack purchases are excluded from the program. For students who are enrolled in the program, points will be tracked via a new account which will be added to the Campus ID card that all SUNY students carry.
