EUGENE, OR--(Marketwired - Aug 28, 2013) - The University of Oregon Alumni Association (UOAA) is teaming up with SheerID to offer UO alumni an exclusive discount on Ducks merchandise.
"As a reward for our members, we're excited to launch our members-only merchandise store, including Nike alumni apparel and office accessories," explains Lauren Peters, Assistant Director for Membership for UOAA. "Using SheerID's verification services allows us to offer this exclusively to our members who are our most proud and loyal Ducks."
All members of the UOAA get 20% off their entire purchase at the Duck Store once a year. Before UOAA began using SheerID's alumni verification solution, members received a coupon code that they could use to redeem their 20% discount. After the coupon code went viral last year and non-members began redeeming the discount, UOAA decided to put SheerID in place to verify alumni's membership status before the discount is automatically applied at checkout.
"SheerID is based in Eugene, OR, the home of the Oregon Ducks. We are thrilled to be able to provide value, not only to UOAA, but also to fellow Ducks fans and alumni," says Jake Weatherly, CEO of SheerID. "Our service allows the UOAA to gate special offers for their members by verifying alumni credentials at checkout."
